    The business of the Company

    More than 80% of the Revenue comes from Trading of the materials. Let us see how this Model Works.

    They procure materials on behalf of the customers based on payment commitments made by such customers.

    The process of cash and carry can be in two modes:

    a) purchase–sale model = The volume of the transaction is reflected as the turnover of the Company. In this model, they are purchasing material on behalf of their customer and later on supplying to them upon receipt of payment.

    b) facilitator mode = The volume of business is not taken as turnover since the ownership of the goods is not vested in the Company at any point in time. In this model, they basically act as a bridge between the buyer and seller.

    This trading business done through the associate supplier model. The selection of associate suppliers for a particular material is done through an open process for a fixed tenure. The Company participates in tenders floated by the buyers with the complete back up of supply of the desired material from the associate supplier. Payment is released to the associate supplier only after receipt of the same from the buyer. All the arrangements are on a back-to-back basis with the associated supplier. In this arrangement, the company is fully dependent on the associate supplier for the fulfillment of their orders. If the associate suppliers fail to fulfill their contractual commitments, the customers may take action against the company.

    Since they offer credit facilities to the customers in both cases, the receivables may be higher than the revenue earned by the Company from their trading vertical.


    As per DRHP, there have been instances of delayed payments and defaults in payment by some of their customers which has becomes a bad debt for the company.

    The average cost of acquisition per Equity Share by the Promoter/Selling Shareholder as on the date of this Red Herring Prospectus is ₹ 0.049.

    Thord party ASBA or UPI is liable to be rejected.

    *MSTC Limited – IPO*
    (The Govt. Of India Enterprise)

    Opens: 13th March 2019
    Closes: 15th March 2019

    Prize Band: *INR 121-128*
    Discount: Rs. 5.50 per share to retail & Employees
    Lot size 90 shares.

    Category wise issue Split:
    QIB: 75%
    HNI: 15%
    Ret: 10%

    The company has incurred a loss for half-year period ended on September 30, 2018, Fiscal 2018 and Fiscal 2016 respectively based on the Restated Financial Statements.

    The said losses are primarily due to bad debts being written off and provisioning done for other bad and doubtful advances and debts.

    The MSTC has shown a loss of 9 Cr in FY18 as compared to a profit of 133 Cr in FY17 due to the following reason.

    1. The Employees expense has gone up in FY18 due to Pay Revision.

    2. The other expenses increased by 270.52% to ₹ 877 Cr in Fiscal 2018 from ₹236 Cr in Fiscal 2017. This increase was primarily due to:

    (i) bad debts are written off worth of ₹ 459 Cr

    (ii) an allowance for other bad and doubtful advances and debts of ₹ 222 Cr in Fiscal 2018.

    Bidding and validation process under UPI

    1. Before submission of the application with the intermediary, the RII would be required to have/create a UPI ID, with a maximum length of 45 characters including the handle (Example: InvestorID@bankname).

    2. RII will fill in the bid details in the application form along with his/ her bank account linked UPI ID and submit the application with any of the intermediaries.

    3. The intermediary upon receipt of the form will upload the bid details along with UPI ID in the stock exchange bidding platform.

    How to create a UPI ID in SBI:

    Step 1: Download the SBI UPI app on your smartphone from google play store

    Step 2: After the download, verify the registered mobile number via SMS. This should be the same number registered with your respective bank

    Step 3: Once the SMS is received, the app will automatically verify the mobile number

    Step 4: To begin the registration process, enter a ‘Virtual Address’, ‘First Name’, ‘Last Name’, ‘Email’. Answer the secret question and choose the respective bank

    Step 5: Accept all terms and conditions and choose the ‘Next’ button

    Step 6: Choose a bank account, click ‘Register’. Choose a 6-digit password.

    Step 7: Set up an m-PIN by submitting debit card details key in OPT to confirm m-PIN.

    Step 8: A registration confirmation message will be sent to the respective mobile number

    This is how UPI will be phased out for applying application in IPO.

    Phase I: From January 01, 2019, the UPI mechanism for retail individual investors through intermediaries will be made effective along with the existing process and existing timeline of T+6 days. The same will continue, for a period of 3 months or floating of 5 main board public issues, whichever is later.

    Phase II: Thereafter, for applications by retail individual investors through intermediaries, the existing process of physical movement of forms from intermediaries to Self-Certified Syndicate Banks (SCSBs) for blocking of funds will be discontinued and only the UPI mechanism with existing timeline of T+6 days will continue, for a period of 3 months or floating of 5 main board public issues, whichever is later.

    Phase III: Subsequently, final reduced timeline will be made effective using the UPI mechanism.

    Once the UPI payment is fully enforced the following will be applicable:

    It has been decided that an investor making an application using any of the aforesaid channel, shall use only his / her own bank account or only his / her own bank account linked UPI ID to make an application in public issues.

    Conclusion: The UPI has not been made mandatory as yet. However, once it is made then you can apply only one application from one account.

        I think it will be discontinued and UPI will be made mandatory. As listing time will have to be reduced to T+3 days which is only possible through UPI.
