Key terms of the Global Surfaces Ltd: IPO issue

The IPO of Global Surfaces Ltd entails the issue of 110.70 lakh shares with the price band yet to be decided. Out of the total sale of 110.70 lakhs shares as part of the IPO, the company will sell 85.20 lakh share by way of a fresh issue and the balance 25.50 lakh shares by way of an offer for sale (OFS). While Unistone Capital Private Ltd will be the lead manager to the IPO, Bigshare Services Private Limited will be the registrar to the issue. The company was promoted by Mayank Shah. The fresh portion of the IPO will be used for investing in its wholly owned subsidiary Global Surfaces FZE Ltd, to part finance its capex to set up an engineering quarts manufacturing facility in the Jebel Ali Free Trade Zone in Dubai.

As per the terms of the offer, 50% of the net offer is reserved for the qualified institutional buyers (QIBs), while 35% of the total issue size is reserved for the retail investors. The residual 15% is kept aside for the HNI / NII investors . The company has a par value of Rs10 per share and post the IPO, the stock of Global Surfaces Ltd will be listed on the NSE and on the BSE. The pre-issue ownership of the promoters stands at 99.35% and this is likely to get diluted post the IPO, where there will be equity dilution and also distribution of ownership through the offer for sale (OFS).

There are few key takeaways from the financials of Global Surfaces Ltd which can be enumerated as under

  1. The growth of the company has been rather low. On an average, the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of revenues has been under 10%.

  2. The PAT margins have sustained at above 17% in the last two years and that is rather encouraging. However, this is a business with traditionally high levels of competition from the unorganized sector in India.

  3. While the return margins like NPM and RONW are healthy, the asset turnover could come under pressure as the fresh issue adds to this stress on the asset utilization efficiency.

Overall, financials are encouraging and we get a clearer picture of valuations only after the pricing of the IPO is decided. For now, the only area of concern in the IPO is the potential for competition from the unorganized sector, which is quite rampant in this business.
