Company Business:

(i) The business of Garden Reach Shipbuilders, in terms of both revenue and expenses, is highly cyclical in nature. (ii) The shipbuilding projects have a typical order-to-delivery period of anywhere from twenty-three (23) to sixty-six (66) months. The longer projects are typically the more expensive projects, and the recognition of revenue and expenses occurs in large parts during the middle period of the project, when expensive equipment and sophisticated systems are installed in the vessels. (iii) The beginning period of a project and the end period of a project give rise to significantly lower revenue and expense recognition as compared to the middle period of the project. As a result, the revenue and expense recognition of the Company is heavily weighted toward five (5) year cycles of one (1) to two (2) year periods of lower revenue and expense recognition, followed by one (1) to two (2) year periods of significantly higher revenue and expense recognition,followed again by one (1) two (2) year periods of lower expense recognition. That is why see heavy fluctuations in the financials of the company in the DRHP in last 5 years. (iv) The company sought to mitigate this cyclic nature through diversification of their product portfolio, but for the foreseeable future, the contracts for construction of naval vessels will result in a continuation of this revenue and expense cycle playing a significant part of the financial results.

Recommendation on Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Limited IPO from IZ team is: 4/10 [The Issue is reasonably priced at P/E of 16 and Mcap/Sales=0.82. However, due to the cyclic nature of the business, the Revenue and PAT would remain up and down. The recently listed company Cochin Shipyard is dwindling below the issue price. The listing gain can be accepted but certainly not a long-term bet]

Discussion on Garden Reach Shipbuilders & Engineers Limited IPO:


      You must not have received the IPO Allotment. You should feel lucky that you didnt get the IPO in this market situation.

      See the listing price. I told u that you would be lucky.

    State Bank of India is not allowing with drawl of this IPO despite the date been extended. Anyone has solution?

    *Garden Reach IPO extended*
    Initial Price band 115-118, now revised to 114-118

    Date extended till 01-Oct-2018, Monday

    Dear Admin,

    Apply kare k nahi??

    As per price band with discount, can expect for listing gain.

    Garden Reach IPO
    Defence contractor. Past performance of defence contractors are not good though thousands of crore order book i. e. Cochin Shipyard, BDL, HAL. I am avoiding this IPO.

    How Revenue is recognised for Work in Progress Vessels?

    (i) The Company generally accept orders for construction of vessels to be delivered up to twenty-three (23) months to sixty-six (66) months from the date of the order. So the question here is how Revenue is recognized for work-in-progress vessels. Let us see.

    a) Cost Plus Contracts:

    “At cost incurred plus profits accrued up to the reporting date as per Contract / Letter of Intent.”

    b) Fixed Price Contracts:

    How profit is reliably measured:

    “At costs incurred up to the reporting date plus profits recognized under percentage completion method in the proportion, the actual costs incurred bear to the estimated total cost to completion as on that date”.

    How the loss is anticipated:

    “When it is probable that total contract costs will exceed the total contract revenue, the expected loss is fully recognized as an expense immediately, irrespective of physical progress achieved on the reporting date.”

    (ii) The aggregate order book as on July 31, 2018, was ₹203,136.10 million, comprising gross order value in the shipbuilding segment, engineering segment and the engine segment of ₹200,294.20 million, ₹851.70 million and ₹1,990.20 million, respectively.

      Just wait for the Grey Market Activity to star. However, as an IPO is priced at a good valuation so listing gains will definitely be there.

    The Revenue and Profit have shown degrowth in last 5 years. The Revenue which was close to 1600 Cr in FY13 has reduced to 1525 Cr in FY18. The Profit margins have also gone down from 8% in FY13 to 6% in FY18. So overall performance is not good. The recent listing of Cochin Shipyard IPO which was also a govt entity in the business of shipbuilding is available below issue price. Hence nothing much to entice in the business.

    As of 31st July 2018, the company has a total debt of 500 Cr. The total equity is 1015.9 Cr.
    So D/E is .49.( Quite Manageable).

    The Company’s clients are Indian Navy and Coast Guard. The shipbuilding division contributes around 80% of the business.

    The company has a strong order book of ₹20313 Cr as on July 31, 2018, comprising gross order value in the shipbuilding segment, engineering segment and the engine segment of ₹20029 Cr, ₹85 Cr, and ₹1,99 Cr, respectively.

    The company has three business units namely Main Works Unit, FOJ Unit, and DEP unit.

    (i) Main Works Unit– This unit allows the company to use modular construction when building warships, which enable them to reduce the shipbuilding period, improve quality through the implementation of integrated construction technology, and to construct ships in line with the global practices in the shipbuilding industry. The facilities allow them to produce eight (8) large ships and twelve (12) medium/ small ships concurrently.[ Shipbuilding segment]

    (ii) FOJ Unit– Main Works Unit is supported by the FOJ Unit, which is dedicated to fitting out and repair of ships.[Engineering segment ]

    (iii) DEP Unit – It is a state-of-the-art diesel engine assembly shop that carries out overhaul and assembly of engines in a dust-and-moisture-proof environment[ Engine Segment]

    EPS Story of the Garden Reach based on FY18 Financials

    (i) PAT= 94.3 Cr
    (ii) No. of Outstanding Shares= 11.4552 Cr
    (iii) EPS= 8.23
    (iv) P/E= 14.337

    Conclusion- The Pricing has been done at reasonable valuations.

    It is a pure Offer for Sale of 29,210,760 Equity Shares by the Govt of India at the face value ₹10 each. The Issue is priced at 115-118 with a retail discount of Rs.5 per Share.

      The growth of the company in the last 5 years is negative. So the prediction of the future is difficult.
