Reasons to invest Bansal Roofing Products IPO

  • Strong revenue growth of 24 times in the last financial year ending Mar-2013 compared to year ending Mar-2012. Considering the growth of 9 months ended Dec-2013, it is expected to post 10% growth in FY14 compared to previous financial year(in the absence of last quarter revenues, this assumption is made)
  • It made 3.7% margins in FY 2012-13 and 2.2% for 9 months ended in FY 2013-14. All SME’s which came for IPO’s are earning similar margins which I felt is comparable though low.
  • It has reduced its dependency in terms of revenues from top-10 customers. Its revenues from top-10 customers for the year ended Mar-2013 was 90%, which is reduced to 35% for 9 months ended Dec-2013.

Reasons not to invest in an Bansal Roofing Products IPO

  • It incurred loss in the financial year ending Mar-2012 (Rs 5.9 Lakhs)
  • Promoter and one of the promoter group entities are involved in certain legal proceedings. If determined, against above of them, it could adversely impact on business and financial performance of the company
  • Company has taken Rs 200 Lakhs of cash credit from SBI, which includes several restrictive covenants for which prior bank approval is required. Failure to adhere to them or non-compliance can result in cancellation of it which would affect its business operations.
  • It has negative cash flows in last 3 years. This indicates that it need to borrow loans for high rate of interest and has difficulty in managing working capital requirements. This would affect the profits of the company.
  • Promoter group entities are in similar business and promoters can favor such entities
  • One of the promoter has given an unsecured loan of Rs 82 Lakhs which is payable on demand. If the promoter demands, this needs to be paid immediately and cash flow of the company can impact.
  • Business is focused in Gujarat only which has limited scope for expansion.
  • SME IPO’s are trading on low volume. Liquidity of such shares could be an issue. Stock brokers can easily manipulate the price of the stock.

Recommendation / Investment strategy

  • On an issue price of Rs 30, based on FY 2013 EPS of Rs 36.35, P/E Ratio works out to be 0.83 times. Based on last 3 years Avg EPS of Rs 15.92, P/E ratio works out to be 1.88. There is no listed competitor in a similar business to compare whether the issue price is high or low. Its NAV post this issue would be Rs 18.02. However, looking at the P/E ratio of < 2, I feel the issue price is not expensive.
  • Bansal Roofing products IPO has several positive and negative factors. Strong growth in revenue, good business strategy which helped to reduce the risk in top-10 customers, etc. On the other side, it has several negative factors, including that it made a loss in business for the year ending Mar-2012. I feel we need to see a couple of more quarters, wait and watch its performance and take a call on the investment in such stocks. In coming quarters, if the margins are improved consistently for a couple of quarters, one can look to invest in such shares.

  1. I will suggest to invest in this company as I could see that results will be better in future and product manufactured by them is infrastructure related and never be in less demand.

  2. Dear Suresh,

    Thanks for sharing the SME IPO details. I have been observing that you are mostly covering SME IPOs and most of these IPOs are suggested 'AVOID'. I request, pls include retail IPOs with 'SUBSCRIBE' suggestions. This would help the retails investers (like me) to invest in IPOs, as the SME IPOs are not affordable to small investors.
