Recommendation on Prince Pipes and Fittings Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of InvestorZone is: 3/10 The peers are trading at a comfortable valuation, shown good growth and have better performance ratios than Prince Pipe. The OFS will give promoters the money to repay the debt of Express Infra Projects LLP, as they have pledged shares while raising money. So this will remain a hangover till the money is paid. We have already seen what has happened in Sterling and Wilson, wherein, the promoters are still finding a way to repay debt as promised with IPO money.

      Well it’s the only market article NO OTHER INFO to support this article, since the date of closing of PIPES IPO issue,


      SINCE this economic Times article must be drawn out from VERY small SAMPLE SPACE of GREY MARKET

      There is extreme large chances of this article to turn out FALSE on listing day

      Look for HNI/NII involvement tomorrow and based on it decide

      It may turn out as 10% positive gain OR 10% negative loss

      So it’s betting purely based on HNI involvement tomorrow

    Hi, can any1 guide me which all share I can buy to be in shareholders quota for upcoming ipo.. so that it will help me to buy those shares now I

    Which share to buy for become share holder small finance incoming ipo name the equities please on NSE bse

    Is there any update about equitas small finance bank IPO . Is there any share holder quota in it?

      yes, it is similar to Ujjivan SFB. So buy 1 share in each account.

      Yes avoiding is best for this IPO since revenue and cash flow has degraded on the track record of the company

    Dear Admin, please correct the ipo lot size. You wrote 80 shares. But its true 84 shares.

    OFS in Prince Pipe is purely to pay debt obligation of Express Infra Projects LLP, which has Rs.191 crores outstanding debt as on 31.10.2019 where promoters have pledged their shares.

    The company has released pledged shares in the month of Nov-19 by giving guarantee that after OFS they will pay debt obligation of Express Infra Projects.

    There are certain Litigations against the promoters. The promoters were partners in Aditya Developers, who has JV with Montana Developers in 2010.

    Montana has filed a criminal proceedings against promoters before court on some forgery letter counter signed by promoters..

    Montana has claimed Rs. 904 crores in damages. So if any adverse order comes then big problem for promoters.

    Reminds me of Sterling Wilson where promoters still struggling to reduce debt which was promised during IPO time.

    The company has already done the pre-IPO placement of 5,965,000 Equity Shares at Rs.178 per share.

    Issue Size is 500 Crores.

    OFS- 250 Crores
    New Shares- 250 Crores.
