Company Analysis:

 On the pricing front, at the upper end of the price band of Rs. 72, share is being issued at a PE multiple of 11.8 times, which is ridiculously expensive for a small speciality chemicals player.  The company is seeking a market cap of close to Rs. 81 crore (at upper band), having a sales run-rate of Rs. 26 crore, indicating price to sales multiple of 3x. This is unheard of in the chemicals industry.


 Leading MNC player like BASF India, with expected FY11 sales of over Rs. 2,500 crore and net profit of about Rs. 185 crore, is ruling at a market cap of Rs. 1,950 crore, resulting in price to sales multiple of 0.78x and PE multiple of 10.5x. Taking this as a benchmark, Fineotex does not deserve a PE multiple even half of BASF, which is an MNC market leader, been in existence for many years.

 Also, fate of recent listing in the same space, Omkar Speciality, is well-known. Share is currently quoting at 37, almost one-third its IPO price of Rs. 98, in barely 10 trading days from listing.

 Verdict: Company has nothing to Boast Of. Weak fundamentals, steep valuations, High Competition, High Collection Period, issue is a clear avoid. We can give 100 Reasons for not Subscribing to the Stock whereas One good Reason to Subscribe to this IPO is actually very Difficult.Strict No to Investors & Specially Traders. Don’t get trapped in these Kind Of Stock. Stock should actually deserve a Valuation of 1/3of the Offer Price. Wait for ONGC FPO. That should prove to be Stellar.
