Reasons not to invest in OneSource Techmedia IPO

  • The financials are not consistent.
  • Company is raising Rs 2.8 Crores, but it locked in long term deposits of Rs 3.25 Crores, current IPO for raising funds not justifiable.
  • Company collected Rs 1000 per share in Mar-11 share allotment which is very high for its business. Currently the issue price is Rs 14. Do not understand the logic behind collecting such high price in 2011.
  • It has issued bonus shares in the ratio of 2: 1 during Nov-12 for 29.95 lakhs by capitalization of free reserves. If company needs funds for expansion, it should raise capital and not to issue bonus shares.
