Debt/equity ratio


SMFL is a holding company of very complex structure. On consolidated basis company suffered losses due to the acquisition of Peguform group in CY 2011. Peguform group was badly hit by the financial crisis of 2008.
For holding companies like this profits are always on paper and loss is real. Even as per stand-alone results, SMFL is trading at a Price-to-Earnings Multiple of 212 (at the upper price band) and this implies very steep valuations.
The major chunk of SMFLs income come from dividend from MSSL, for the 9-month ending December 2011 this figure was Rs. 387 million and there is no sense in subscribing to this issue for availing MSSL dividend.  On consolidated basis company has incurred the loss mainly due to higher interest outgo.
No doubt, it’s better to stay away from this comedy of complexities.
