Recommendation on Alkosign Limited IPO (Alkosign IPO):

Review and Recommendation of Alkosign by InvestorZone is 3/10 [ Alkosign SME IPO has given only 1 year of financial and by seeing that it is next to impossible to judge the company. Atleast 3 years financials would have been handy. They have done Capex of ~16 Crores in FY21, but how much ROCE they will able to generate from this investment is very difficult to ascertain at this point. Moreover, the asking P/E is ~37x which looks very stretched ]

Discussion on Alkosign Limited IPO (Alkosign IPO):


    Balance Sheet look very weak in FY21 due to Short term loan of ~11 Crores taken…. However, good thing is Loan is taken from Directors and Relatives…And, some of the debt will be reduced via IPO funding.

    Cash-Flow Statement Analysis of FY21….

    a) Cash-flow from operations

    Profit Before Tax after adjusting non-cash items = 1.42 Crores———-This is the amount they have earned from Operations…..

    Changes in Working Capital = -5.35 Crores

    Inventory has been increased by 2.26 Crores, Trade Receivables increased by ~5 Crores, Trade Payable increased by 1.93 Crores……

    So, overall, the total cash outflow in Working Capital was 5.35 Crores……

    Total Cash generated from operations = 1.42 Crores -5.35 Crores = -3.93 Crores….So, they are unable to generated cash from operations…..

    b) Cash Flow from Investment…..

    In FY21, they have done Capex of ~16 Crores…..

    Now you will wonder, if they are not able to generate any cash from operations, how they will get 16 crores to do capex…..The answer is below….

    c) Cash generated from Financing…

    They have raised ~9 Crores of long term debt and ~11 Crores of Small term debt….So, they have raised 20 Crores to fuel the capex…..

    Total debt on books as on 30.06.2021 is Rs.20.50 Crores……

    Total Equity as on 30.06.2021 = ~1 Crores…

    D/E = 20x ( very high)

    In Nov-21, company has raised 2.362 Crores by issuing 35,000 Equity Shares at Rs.675 per share….

    After that 60:1, bonus was issued….So, per share value comes out to be 11.25 per share….

    So, after this fund raising, the Equity becomes ~3.3 Crores…

    Still D/E is ~6x….which is very high…..

    1. Issue Price is Rs.45 per share
    2. Total Shares Outstanding before IPO = 27,45,000
    3. Total New Shares to be issued = 27,00,000
    4. Total Outstanding Shares after IPO = 54.45 Lakh
    5. Mcap = 24.50 Crores
    6. PAT of FY21 = 66 Lakh
    7. EPS(FY21) = 1.21 per share
    8. P/E = 45/1.21 = 37x….
