Recommendation on GKP Printing and Packaging Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of GKP Printing and Packaging Limited IPO from IZ Team is : 3/10 [ It is very hard to predict and analyze a company based on only 6 months financials.

Discussion on GKP Printing and Packaging Limited IPO:


    The company has issued shares in the Pre-IPO placement at par with Issue price.

    So after forming a company, only first 6 months financials are available.

    Revenue= 13 Cr
    EBITDA= 10.50 Cr
    PAT= 1.99 Cr

    Total Shares outstanding= 73.32944 Lakh
    EPS after Annualizing first 6MFY19 = 5.45
    P/.E= 5.87

    Trade receiivables= 7 Cr
    Current ratio <1


    a) As per DRHP, the company is projecting that in 2019, the company would require a total 12 Cr working capital. So 4.41 Cr raised from this IPO would be used for that. We do not know how much this projection is correct.

    b) Only 6MFY19 financials are available after forming the company in April 2018. Hence nothing can be concluded about the company in such a short span.

    c) If somebody is looking into this sector for investment then Worth peripheral is good to watch out for.

    The Goradia family initially running the business of manufacturing corrugated boxes from three Proprietary firms.

    1. M/s G.K. Packaging

    Mr. Keval Harshad Goradia ventured into the corrugated boxes manufacturing business in the year 2004 by setting up a proprietorship concern in the name of M/s. G.K. Packaging.

    2. M/s Pratham Packaging

    Mrs. Payal Keval Goradia entered into the corrugated box manufacturing business in the year 2012 as she set up a proprietorship concern in the name of M/s Pratham Packaging for carrying out the business.

    3. K P Print & Packaging

    Finally, before raising money from an IPO, the business of first two firms was merged and 3rd firm business was closed down and transfer all its business into a new entity.

    So on 3rd April 2018, a new company was formed with the name GKP Printing and Packaging Limited.
