Reasons to invest

Good revenue growth from Rs 4 lakhs from FY2008 to Rs 496.96 lakhs in FY2012.

Reasons not to invest

  • Though the revenues have been growing, if we annualize the revenues of 9 months ending Dec-12, the revenues expected for FY2013 are Rs 450 Crores. Means there would be a drop in year on year revenue by 10% comparing to FY2012.
  • The margins are very low and below 1.5% per annum in FY2012. In 2013, the profit margin is suddenly increased to 25.77%. This is due to the fact about “Changes in inventories” for Rs 1.65 Crores. If we exclude such re-valuation/re-validation of inventories, there would be a loss of Rs 78 lakhs instead of Rs 87 lakhs profit.
  • Company is raising Rs 6 Crores mainly for purchasing or set-up of registered office and it may not add much benefit to the company business.

Recommendation / Investment strategy: Average EPS for the last 3 years is Rs 0.31. Revenues for the 9 months ended Dec-2012 are Rs 337 lakhs and profits are Rs 126 lakhs. It has issued the shares for Rs 200 each during 2007-2011 and issued bonus shares in May-2012. Due to this the NAV is inflated and shows Rs 22.07 as on 31-Dec-12. If the capital is increased from Rs 13.44 Crores to Rs 19.44 Crores, the NAV would reduce to Rs 17.82. The P/E ratio would work out to 32.26 on previous equity. The peer group companies P/E ratio is ranging between 3.70 and 50, hence the issue price is not high. However the minimum investment required is Rs 1 lakh. The SME IPO’s listed are trading with very low volume and the liquidity has been a problem. Considering the negative points, my suggestion is to avoid such IPO.
