Discussion on TCNS Clothing IPO:


    Looking at the P/E comparison with the peers, there’s a clear upside. Buy at current price which is what QIBs and smart investors are doing.

      Yes, Monte Carlo which is in the Apparel Segment too has given strong results yesterday. Net Sales of Rs. 84 Cr in June Quarter as compared to 69 Cr in the same quarter last year. The Net profit of Rs. 6.24 Cr in June Quarter as compared to 5.21 Cr in the same quarter last year. TCNS is a good brand let us see how it goes from here on.

    It seems that buying is happening in TCNS as trading is happening on sellers price but still lot of shares are still with retail investors, out of total 76 lacs shares allotted to Retail and HNI, only 37 lacs marked for delivery yesterday

    Many big grey brokers and punters have got stuck in TCNS … still holding … still bleeding

    Crowd looking for listing gains getting out, investors believing in stock fundamentals are getting in

    Looks like Retail and NIIs are selling and QIBs buying, this is in line with the subscription, not a bad trend, price will improve by EOD.

    Flat listing of TCNC clothing. Let us see how the story unfolds at the E.O.D.

    Neutral on this issue.
    It is almost debt free company and we have seen in past that most of debt free company have given great returns post IPO
    Lets wait for listing and hope it reward people who applied this issue

    Money starts debiting for TCNS Clothing. Everybody, please check.

    GMP 30 +/- 1

      Yo. It could be dark horse. Let us wait for listing

    Good response from QIB and NII at the end. We are expecting 3-5% listing gain in TCNS Clothing. Let us see on listing day. We will meet on listing day i.e July 30 to make new strategy. Please stay tuned with for more such updates in IPOs.

    After spill over, the QIB quota- 7.58, HNI quota- 3.87 and Retail quota- 1.
    Spill over means, as Retail quota was not fully subscribed, the left over shares were distributed among QIBs and HNIs.

    Anchor list-
    Goldman Sachs India Ltd, Auburn Ltd, Fidelity Securities Fund Fidelity Blue Chip Growth Fund, DB International Asia Ltd, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Company Ltd and UBS Principal Capital Asia Ltd.

    TCNS Clothing has allotted 47,14,210 equity shares to 18 anchor investors at Rs 716 per scrip, garnering Rs 337.54 crore.

    Apart from Pricing of the IPO and fierce competition from the unorganized sector, other parameters are looking quite strong for the company. Let us see the position of the Balance Sheet, the company has long term debt = 20 lacs and Short term debt =40K which is negligible in front of 43 cr equity. The company has excellent RONW of 22.74%. The company has manageable receivables under 60 days. The company is also generating positive cash flows from the operations.

    If anyone wants to play the story of brand in clothing, then TCNS is right kind of stock to look upon. The Branded segment in India is having market share of only 23%. So opportunity is huge in the market and company has shown 30% CAGR growth smartly outgrow the industry which is growing at a CAGR of 10%. However, the competition from unorganized sector is huge in this sector and going forward this would be a challenge for the company.

    These type of stocks only generate interest during ipo time .I don’t find this as a portfolio stock. If anyone wants to take risk for listing gains then apply after looking at subscription figures .If the subscription is good one can apply for short term only .

      I agree Tarun. This is not a portfolio stock for sure. This is not even a listing gain stock. Considering the niche, market sentiments etc it should list negative..😁

    **************************RISK in the Company**********************
    1. The company do not own any manufacturing unit and engage job workers for manufacturing all their products.The company has 37 designers on board and retaining them would be challenge for the company. The growth will dent in future if they decided to part away with company.

    2. The Company has 289 exclusive brand outlets and four warehouses located in New Delhi on a leasehold basis. All these outlet are on Lal dora area of New Delhi, the use of such land for commercial purposes has been, in recent years, subject to increasing regulation by local municipal authorities. So any changes in law will impact company’s growth in future.

    3. The Company is highly dependent on franchisee and online retailers for majority of their sales. Now a days we are seeing price war in online retail website due to huge competition, so if company is not able to pitch right price of their product they may loose significant online retail business.

    4. It is a seasonal business. Sales generally improved in and around Diwali.

    5. The industry is highly competitive. The unorganized players in the market are biggest threat to this company.

    The company has total profit of 97 Cr in FY18 on the basis of which the EPS would be around 15.92. The IPO is priced at 716, so on the basis of this price the offered P/E= 44.97. Looks pricey issue.
