Discussion on Ushanti Colour Chemical Limited IPO:


    congratulation to people who got allotment in this sme.
    It holds potential to be a multibagger. When its commerical activity will increase in 2020 there its good potential of stock moving very high

    Allotment status is available inside INVESTORZONE Android application. 👍

    The company has acquired land in Bharuch, Gujarat. It will commence operation bt 2020-21 in 2 phases.
    considering reasonable valuation, good client base, demand for product increasing, experience management.
    Apply this for the long-term view.

    As per new SEBI guidelines, the Minimum size of anchor investor has been reduced from 10 cr to 2 cr in SME IPOs. This will lead to more participants in pre-IPO placement. This is a good move as generally the issue size of SME IPOs ranges from 5 Cr to 70 Cr.

    The company has reasonable valuation and good business model. Looks a good IPO to apply.

    Though company export 59% of the their products to International market but till date they do not have any office offshore.

    The major issue with the Dye chemical business is the use of numerous toxic acids and its related chemical components. Usage of such intermediates is hazardous to the environment as a whole. This leads to excessive government focus and regulations to be followed in such business model. We have already seen how in China such companies have already been closed. So Environment fear will always be there with such companies going forward. and as a investor you are bound to take such risk .

    As per #23 DRHP
    At present, the Companies manufacturing facility is operating at more than 90% of its installed capacity. So to enhance the production, the company is setting up a new manufacturing facility spread over an area of 75,060 sq. meters with an annual production capacity of approx. 16,140 tons including dye intermediates and dyestuffs while the permitted capacity is approx. 32,800 tons p.a. For this Company has received approval from Gujarat Pollution Control Board (GPCB) for their consent to establish this facility with the list of intermediates. This going forward will be the key driver for company’s growth both in terms of revenue and PAT.

    India and China are the only two countries in the world where Dye manufacturing business is carried out. The Ushanti Colour Chemical Limited faces tough competition from China as they have a competitive advantage of manufacturing dyestuffs at lower cost. However, recently there have been environmental concerns on dye companies in China which has led to shut down of many such companies. So this might be a good opportunity for the company to cash in future.

    Though Company has variety of products under their portfolio but they have been focusing only on production of Blue dyestuffs. Their percentage revenue in F.Y. 2016-17 for Blue Dyestuffs was around 90% in F.Y. 2016-17. The Company being a specialised player in Blue Reactive Dyes, the focus of the company has remained intact in this segment in future as well.

    Ushanti Colour Chemicals LImited has a good clients base in International market. They exports their products to UK ,Bangladesh,USA,Pakistan,Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Greece, Mexico, Portugal, Indonesia,Belgium, Korea, Turkey, China, and Vietnam. Their 59% revenue comes from export.
