    (E)   Inference
Prima facie financials of this company may appear satisfactory but actually they are not. Receivables constitute around 91 % of the current assets of the company which is quite spooking-in case of any default company’s operation shall come to a standstill.
The balance sheet shows zero investment and that is strange for a company which shall boast an M-Cap of Rs. 103 crore post-issue. (At the upper price band).
In FY 12 Company’s reserve grew around 2.16 times but no increase in cash & bank balance, fixed assets, or the investment-which is zero. Secured debts of the company doubled while current liability grew 7.6 times in FY 12.
Cash flows from operations is consistently negative for past several years. Top five clients constitute the 90% of the order book and the ‘Sales to Order Book’ ratio is barely one which should be at least 2.5.
The company desperately needs the money for its working capital requirement.
Valuations of this issue are high, Valecha engineering and Tantia constructions fall in the similar M-cap category while they are trading at a price-to-earnings multiple of 4.5 and 11 respectively.
Considering all these facts, business prospects of this company are not healthy and investment in it should better be avoided.
