Recommendation on Antony Waste Handling IPO:

Review and Recommendation of InvestorZone is: 3/10. Pros: 1) A leading service provider in the MSW management sector with end-to-end capabilities. 2) Long term contracts with municipalities and Government agencies. 3) Strong track record of project execution. 4) A de-risked business model with a diverse portfolio of projects. Cons: 1. The business has not shown any growth in the last 3 years, both in bottom-line and top-line. The asking valuation is on the higher side. 2. The company’s business model as such, has to depend on municipal corporations, the government agencies, and we all know how government tendering works. 3. The business requires high working capital. The company needs to employ a huge number of workers for cleaning work and it also requires a large number of the vehicle to carry out and expansion of the business. 4. A lot of litigation are going on with various municipal corporations for not giving timely payments, some projects are being stopped due to disputes, sometimes the land given for dumping was not as per agreed upon, the municipal corporations put up an unnecessary penalty, deductions, etc.

    Business takeaways of Antony.

    1. One of the top player in Indian Municipal Solid Waste Management Industry, with 17 years of experience.

    2. Do business in three segment.

    a) MSW collection and transportation.( Currently having 8 projects)

    b) Sweeping of city( currently having 5 projects)

    c) Waste to Energy( one project)

    They get projects for certain duration, say 2 years, 5 years, 10 years and so on.

    3. 65-70% of solid waste management is done by municipal corporation itself. And rest 30-35% done by company like Antony. So in future with Swachh Bharat Abhiyan and Smart city, the private players will take big pie.

    4. Till date they have undertaken 25 projects , out of which 14 are currently running, as on 30.11.2018.

    5. They have around 515 vehicles to manage MSW, as on 30.11.2018.

    6. Problem is many of their projects out of 14 mentioned as on 30.11.2018, are expiring in 2019, 2020.

    So need to check rhp, to know their current projects.

    Need to verify how many such municipal projects they are 🏃, as on today.

    They should have surely finished this earlier…with the dates clashing with sbi cards ipo this might even not get fully subscribed…
