Financial Profile #

# Post-issue equity considered for the calculation of EPS and BV

FY 13 Annualized
25.7 %
Profit CAGR (5 years)
Debt-equity ratio(pre-equity)


Though profit CAGR and ROE may seem tempting but this issue leaves no stone unaltered to spook investors. The pre-equity Debt-equity ratio of 4.5 emphasizes the need for floating this issue besides working-capital requirement. But what is interesting to see is only Rs. 90 lakh out of this Rs. 89-crore issue shall be allocated for the debt repayment!
And the reason for the aforesaid is-A company with a network of just Rs. 54.65 crore is raising Rs. 89 crore shall easily bring its debt-equity ratio in a safer territory without any substantial debt repayment.
Sai Silks is trading company with a net profit margin of just 4% and the finance cost of Sai Silks for the fiscal 13 will be as high as Rs. 16 crore (annualized) and still this company overlooking its debt burden that too in this high-interest regime which is quite puzzling.
In short, risk-averse value investors better stay away from this temptation irrespective of the safety net.
