Recommendation on R R Kabel Limited IPO:

Review and Recommendation of RR Kabel SME IPO by IZ team is 5/10

Business Overview and Competitive Strengths

R R Kabel Limited has a robust presence in India's consumer electrical industry, specializing in wires, cables, and fast-moving electrical goods (FMEG). Operating for over two decades, the company has cultivated a diverse product portfolio under its flagship brand 'RR Kabel' and licensed brands like 'RR' and 'Luminous Fans and Lights.' The company's strengths lie in its scaled B2C business, which offers higher gross margins than B2B channels. Its extensive product range is backed by targeted research and development and reinforced by a broad domestic and international distribution network.

Objectives of the IPO

The primary goals of the IPO are two-fold: a) To repay or prepay, either fully or partially, the borrowings availed from banks and financial institutions. b) To allocate funds for general corporate purposes. The IPO entails a fresh issue of 1,739,130 shares and an offer for sale of 17,236,808 shares, pegging the issue size at ₹1,964.01 Cr.


The company's financials reveal steady growth in sales, from ₹2723 Cr in Mar-21 to ₹5599 Cr in Mar-23. However, the EBITDA margin has slightly declined over these years, and the net profit margin has seen a reduction from 4.93% to 3.37% over the same period. These factors could be a point of concern for potential investors.

Peer Comparison and Valuation

When compared to peers like Havells India and Polycab India, R R Kabel's market capitalization is relatively smaller but has a higher P/E ratio of 61.5. Its EPS stands at ₹16.83, somewhat in line with industry counterparts, indicating a competitive edge but also highlighting the need for caution given the valuation. In summary, R R Kabel Limited's IPO comes at a time when the company is well-positioned in a growing market, but potential investors should carefully consider the declining profit margins and valuation metrics compared to industry peers.

Discussion on R R Kabel Limited IPO:


      Listing on 20 Sept 2023.

      T+2 listing….

      Happening First time in the history of an IPO.

    In this market, you will not get anything at low valuation. Everything will be costly. Apply for listing gains and not for investment purpose. Chances of discount in this market is very low.

      You are correct. When the market is on a bull run, investors flock in where their is action/activity with out application of any economic sense or logic. I, since, have applied for 1 lot each.

    Avoidable from purely fundamental point. Better invest in Polycab Wires or KEI Industries. Both have better profitability and available at cheaper valuations.

      Isn’t it very highly priced, Umesh ji ?Havn’t you noticed the P/E ratio? Are you applying? Really sorry.
