Company Financials: For FY10, it reported net sales of Rs.169.90 cr and PAT of Rs.9.04 cr giving an EPS of 3.73 for FY09.(Calculated on 24.2 Crore Base Equity)

 The company reported net sales of Rs 108.34 cr for the Six Months period ended September 30, 2010, and PAT of Rs 6.96 cr. Considering the same numbers for the next 2 quarters, Company will log 13.92 Crore of Profit & EPS of 4.3(Calculated on the Expanded 32.3 Crore Base)

Competition with Peers: Sterlite Technologies with sales of Rs. 2,500 crore and 10% PAT margin is commanding market cap of Rs. 1,700 crore, translating to a price to sales multiple of 0.7 and PE of less than 7.  While Shilpi Cable, with turnover of Rs. 200 crore and PAT margin of 6.5%, is seeking market cap

Verdict: Company is demanding a P/E of 16.04 which is totally not acceptable. The other Constraints for the company are losses incurred during the past years, high debt of about 86 Crores, liquidity crunch leading to delays in repayment of term loan installments and high working capital utilisation and relatively high gearing. The grading is further constrained by very short track record of the company in manufacturing of RF cables, volatility in raw material prices and increasing competition from the domestic and international players.

We will urge investors & traders to Stay away with these kind of issues. The issue is very small of only 55 crore. Don’t be surprised if any Operator play this IPO. Just be sure that you are not playing with him by participating even after listing for this IPO.
