Note: 1. The Valuation must be looking tempting for Ashapura Intimates Fashion. However, I would like to clarify that the Share Price is continuously falling from the highs of 435 on 25.09.2018 and now standing at 179 in just 15 Days. Something wrong with the company so don't invest there. 2. The Valuation w.r.t Peers appears to be fully priced in. 3. TheFY18  Financials are taken for calculations. Source: Moneycontrol and DRHP

Recommendation on Iris Clothings Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of Iris Clothings IPO from our side is: [ The Issue looks fully priced in w.r.t Adj P/E. The companies of the Textile sector are not performing well in the bourses. The competition is really tough in the sector both from organized and unorganized players. The Condition of the balance sheet is poor. Moreover, the condition of the overall market is also poor and better investment opportunities are available in the market. ]

Discussion on Iris Clothings Limited IPO:


    Todays listing updates :

    Garden Reach (Main Board) – 104 at BSE & 102.50 at NSE (IPO Price – 118)

    A1 Acid (Guiness) – 61 at BSE SME .. IPO price 60

    Dolphin Rubbers (Guiness) – 27.50 at BSE SME .. IPO price 26

    Kritika Wires (Hem) – 34.10 at Emerge … IPO price 32

    Silgo Retail (Aryaman) – 36.45 at Emerge … IPO price 36

    All SMEs of dubious LMs listed at premium … due to almost NIL public participation.

    The Revenue and PAT growth shown by the company in the last 5 years is excellent.
    Revenue Growth= 20%
    PAT Growth= 49%

    However, the weak balance sheet overshadows all the good work done by a company in term of Sales growth. Once the position of the balance sheet improves this can look for investment purpose.

    In terms of EV/EBITDA based on FY18 numbers, the value is above 10 which is again high.

    The Average EPS of the last three years.
    2016= 2.46
    2017= 6.07
    2018= 7.22( Post IPO Dilution)

    Average EPS= 5.25
    P/E= 17.14

    In many forums/websites, you will find the P/E to below 10. They have actually calculated considering Q1FY19 numbers and then Annualized it. This formula works fine but to be on the safer side we should always calculate EPS by considering the last 3 years Average EPS because many times just before the IPO lot of manipulation done in financials.

    Balance Sheet Diagnosis based on FY18 Financials

    1. D/E=~2( High).

    2. Current Ratio=24/23=1.04 ( Not comfortable).Should be at least greater than 1.5.

    3. Quick Ratio= 13/23= .56 ( Not comfortable).Should be at least greater than 1.

    4. Long-term Debt/Working Capital= 6( Not comfortable).Should be at less than 1.

    Conclusion: The Company’s Balance Sheet is in very poor shape.

    (i) Shares Issued before the Issue- 34,30,779 Equity Shares.
    (ii) Present Issue= 12,30,400 Equity Shares.
    (iii) Total Shares after the Issue= 46.61,179
