Dilip Davda (SEBI registered Research Analyst-Mumbai) in Free Press Journal said, "BRLMs’ have poor track record. However, considering the sops for the segment in which the company is engaged and has shown improved performances for past four fiscals, cash surplus investors may consider for medium to long term investment in this issue. "
Considering the upper price band of Rs 268 and on FY16 (financial year 2016) earnings per share(EPS) of Rs 17.15, the P/E ratios (price over equity) has been fixed at 15.6x.
Since last 3 year, the EPS was around Rs 11.08, along with P/E ratio of 24.1x.
As per Myinvestingideas.com following are the recommendations for the IPO.
Looking at the price band and P/E ratio, it would mean the company is asking the upper band of issue price of Rs 268 for a P/E ratio between 15.6x to 24.1x. If compared this with its peers Kitex Garment which are trading at P/E ratio of 20.04, suggest that SP Apparels issue price is on the higher side,
Further it added that, the company’s revenue grew just at 7.6% CAGR (compounding annual growth rate) in last 5 year. In terms of net profit, the company only managed generate profit in the range of 1% to 2%. However, that changed during FY16 where it saw 6.5% growth in net profit. The two BLRM’s have handled nealy 4 IPO’s earlier, where 3 of them have been isted below issue price of listing day.
Considering all the factors, the report does not recommend for subscription.
Also, WaytoWealth said, in spite of Rs 63 crores set aside for repayment of debt of the total debt of Rs 259.3 crores, the company still remains highly leveraged. The company has earmarked some of the money raised for expansion of the branded business Crocodile. We believe the company will be in a capex mode for the next few years & this might entail some pressure on the balance sheet. Hence, we are neutral on the issue.
