Discussion on Varroc Engineering Limited IPO:


    It is available around issue price. Good chance for long term investor to pick this gem for long term. It can give great rewards for investors who have patience to hold for long term. Endurance technology start rising after few months. This will follow same trend .

    Firm allotment for retailers in Varroc. Good demand from QIBs. Hope we can have a good listing gain.

    Out of the 50% quota reserved for QIBs, 60% i.e 60,36,518 have been allotted yesterday to 30 anchor investors. The Anchor has impressive list of 18 Mfs, 8 FPI(Foreign Portfolio Investment ), 2 Insurance companies, and 2 AIFs( Alternate Investment funds). It is has some big names like DSP Blackrock, Axis Multicap, Kotak Small Cap, Kotak Equity etc.. So overall we can say the brand name of the Indian Equity Market has given up thumbs to this IPO.

    RITES- 33-35
    Fine- 36-38
    Varroc- 65-70

    As per new SEBI guidelines, the company coming up with an IPO now have to show only 3 years Financial statements in the DRHP. This will lead more companies to raise funds via IPO. However, this will have negative from the perspective of the investor as less numbers means less interpretation about the company’s performance.

    SEBI has reduced the no. of days from 5 to 2 to announce the price band of IPO. Previously it was announced 5 days prior to opening of IPO for Public subscription which has now reduced it to 2. We will have to see how it will impact the grey market as now we have only 2 days to do all the grey business.

    This is a big IPO. Total Issue size is around 2000 Cr. Retail quota is around 700 Cr. So we can accept a firm allotment for retail investor here.

    Varroc Engg CFO to BTVI :

    To Issue IPO In Range Of Rs 965-967/shr; To Raise About Rs 1,955 Cr From IPO
    IPO Will Ipen On June 26
    Have 26 Manufacturing Plants Across India
    Will Look To Grow 4-wheeler Components Business From Current 10%
    Will Look at Strengthening Current Customer Relationships
    Co Supplies To OEMs Which Account For 85% Market Share In 2-wheeler Segment
    Auto Components Business For 2 & 3 Wheelers Was 35% Of Total Revenue
    Fy18 Turnover at Rs 10,300 Cr; Global Lighting Business Was 60% Of Revenue
    Initial Feedback From Institutional Investors For IPO Is Encouraging

    Revenue Break up Sector wise(FY18)
    1. Global lightning Business= 60.8%
    2. Indian Business= 35.1%
    3. Other Business= 4.1%

    Revenue break up product wise(FY18)
    1. Lighting = 60.8%
    2. Polymer= 16%
    3. Electrical= 10.2%
    4. Metallic= 6.3%
    5. Others= 6.7%

    The company’s total Profit for FY18 is 450 Cr and total outstanding shares 13.4 Cr, so EPS
    comes out to be 33( 450/13.4). The Price to Earning ratio is 965/33= 29. If we take 10%
    growth in PAT , the PAT for the year FY19 would be around 500 Cr, then EPS would be 37
    and at current P/E of 30, the Price of share would be around 1110 which is 15% up from
    current price. So we can expect a good listing gain in it.

    The Company has M.cap of 13,036 Cr and a sales of 10417 Cr , so Mcap/sales is around 1.5 which is highly undervalued as compared to its peers like Mothersome sumi, Bharat Forge and Endurance Tech.

    The industry PE is around 42 and Varroc is coming at P/E of 29.So it is fairly priced.

    Post IPO, the Promoter and Promoter Group will hold approximately 84.99% of our outstanding Equity Shares.

    #Page 21 DRHP says the operations of the company requires lot of environmental and safety regulations . In the past they have received following notices from Govt for polluting the environment.

    1. Company received a letter dated July 21, 2015 from the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (“MPCB”) in relation to its manufacturing facility located at Waluj (Plant VII) to pay 2 Cr as a fine which was later reduced to 2 lacs for remediation of ground water contamination.

    2. Their environmental license for Varroc TYC Auto Lamps’Pollutant Discharge Permit issued by the Environmental Protection Department of Xinbei District, Changzhou, China expired on March 16, 2017 and the new policy formulation is in the process and they have yet to receive permit. Any adverse policy changes in China will severely affects the company’s performance. In past we have seen how China has shutdown many industries due to pollution issues.

    The company has good set of clients like Bajaj, Honda and India Yamaha in India and Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles(“FCA”), Groupe PSA, an American electric car manufacturer and a European multinational car manufacturer.
