Recommendation on Ahlada Engineers Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of Ahlada Engineers Limited IPO from IZ team is: 6/10 [ The Company will reduce its debt by 6.5 Cr from the Issue which will reduce the finance cost going forward. The Company is also expanding its existing manufacturing capacity from 1,32,000 doors per annum to 3,40,400 doors per annum from the IPO proceeds. The company doesn't have any listed peer which gives the company a first mover advantage. The Valuation in terms of P/E, P/ B, Mcap/Sales and EV/EBITDA looks reasonable. Their recent type up with TATA will give them a tremendous opportunity both in terms of technology and brand name. ] 1-5: Fair 5-7: Good 7-10: Excellent

Discussion on Ahlada Engineers Limited IPO:


    Tata Steel’s MD, Mr Narendra and his team is visiting Ahlada’s plant on this Saturday.

    Business is good and stock can be applied by people who are ready to hold for long term as chance of huge listing gain is less.
    The stock is slight on expensive side
    wait to look if get anchor investors and check subscription on last day.

    They have signed a contract with Tata Steel for 4 years with extension of 11 months. At present they have manufacturing facility of 11 thousand doors which will reach to 30 thousand by January. After the contract is over Tata will give them first right to refuse. They refused Tata’s offer for selling a 51 percent stake this shows their brand power. They have no competitors. TATA PAYS their rent, steel price fluctuations, dollar price fluctuations. This is a very rare contract.

      hello, so any rise in steel prices will not affect companies margins ? does that mean they get fixed remuneration per door ? and how is this offer on ev/ebidta basis ?

        We don’t have the agreement copy with us. However, as per sourced information from broker meet, the cost of one door is about 13500 with a profit of 1500 per door. They have received a contract for supplying 11 Lakhs doors in four years that means every they are supplying close to 2.75 lakh door to Tata which is close to 80% of the present capacity after expansion. So we can say that the total revenue from Tata every year may be close to 370 Cr. The margin will remain muted for the next four years due to this contract. However, if these Tata Doors gets a good response in the market then Ahlada will definitely be acquired by TATA in future.

      Now this is very exclusive contract reason is TATA pays land rent , steel price hikes or down price in steel, currency fluctations. What more a SME can ask for. Also after the contract is over the company has both right to refusal and right to renew for next 11 months . Icing on the cake is Tata had shown willingness to buy 51 percent stake. The scientist who had sold out his company to Shanta Bio is Chairperson.
