Discussion on Indostar Capital Finance Limited IPO:


    Dear friends,

    We are now experiencing that SMEs are not able to deliver the same returns which they were giving us around 6 months back.  I have tried to find out the reasons and found some points which I m putting herewith :

    1.  Over-expectations from retailers from SMEs

    2.  Change of sentiment (market conditions)

    3.  Removal of LTCG (got feedback from some ultra HNIs).

    4.  Dreaming of circuits (still in memories).

    5.  Pricing of SME IPOs are considerably high.

    6.  Introduction of funding in SME IPOs (this put up some extra pressure during listing)

    *SME exchange is only a tool which enables retail investors to do private equity in startups and small companies. Anyone who doesn’t invest with a loooong term mindset, and with proper risk allocation, will soon be dissatisfied and sell at whatever price..leading to sharp falls.*

    It is not justified to comment on each rise and each fall … if you are applying in SMEs then please sit patiently … and if you cannot sit patiently then may please sold off your holdings and sleep peacefully.

    Any other comments / queries are most welcome.


    Currently very less activity in the grey market. HNI response in last two days is not encouraging. Let us see how it fares on final day. I will apply only after seeing subscription figure.

    Total income stood at 720 Cr for FY17, and for 9MFY18 stood at 586 Cr.
    At a PAT of *210* Cr for FY17, and for 9MFY18, PAT of 164 Cr, even Q4FY18, if we take Good numbers, than Full year PAT of *230* Cr,
    And price of *572*, it is asking for *22* times FY18 earnings, with P/B of *2.5* FY18, and NiMs like other players, Asset quality largely same, Less ROE, Cost to income ratio is at 27.6% for 9MFY18,
    & *Total AUM = 5171 Cr*
    And at a price of *572* asking for Market Cap of *5200*, means AUM = Market cap,

    Consolidated PAT grown at 40%, for FY18, for Q4FY18 PAT has grown at 28%, High ROE of 15%, Reducing gross and Net NPA,
    Low cost to income ratio,

    For short to medium term,
    And Also good for long term.

    *Capital first* Also trades at 20 times FY18 earnings, with P/B of 2.4, AUM of 27,000 Cr, Pat Growth of 37%, for FY18, Net NPA of 1%, Market cap of 6131 Cr and ROE of 13%.

    Book tilted towards, corporate lending majorily towards real estate lending, plus top 10 borrowers accounting for 43% loan book, it’s risky,
    Plus asking for Similar valuation like *L&T Finance* & other,
    Even with *20* growth asking for *20* times FY19 Earnings, not cheap,Peers growing at *25-30*%,

    Why Promoter existing too much holding,
    Issue size is *1844 Cr* which is large ,

    Expect Fair value in between *510-550*,
    With P/B of 2.3-2.4,


    Stock can go down much, nothing much and asking for High valuation when peers are available at less and have high quality assets,

    *See the Subscription numbers and take a call for Risky investors*

    *Rest Aviod*

    *Buy L&T Finance between 160-170*
    For *185* and *200* in short to medium term…..
    Also good for long term,
    *Stop loss is *140*

    Company commenced operations in 2011. Average cost of acquisition of promoters and other shareholders is around Rs.130. They will be getting nearly 5 times their investment in this period.
    Isn’t it too much demand in short span.
    It seems to be fully priced on valuation basis also. Many such NBFCs already listed in secondary market.
    What is different in it?

    IndoStar IPO:
    Corporate finance 76%, SME finance 22% share in total loan book. Housing and vehicle finance very less 2%. Housing finance considered as safest. Corporate and SME both are risky.

    As per the sources Hdfc will not come in this month.
    It is expected in first week of June. – fwd

    It is coming at 22.5 PE ratio. 2.3 times of book value. Pricing is very reasonable. Lead Managers fixing the price after considering last 7 issues.(Except Bandan and Lemon all are lists at discount or at issue price). Pricing is OK. Now we have to look how qib and hni participates this issue. It seems good response from qib.

    Seems good for listing and as well short/long term.. Apply!
