Anupam Rasayan IPO: Assessment

  • As per F&S Report, India’s specialty chemicals industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~10% to 11% over the next five years mainly, due to rising demand from end-user industries coupled with tight global supply as a result of stringent environmental norms in China.
  • Anupam Rasayan India Limited® is one of the leading companies engaged in the custom synthesis and manufacturing of specialty chemicals in India.
  • Apart from supplying to many MNCs, some customers have been buying company’s products for over 10 years. In the period ended 9 months ended December 31, 2020, Anupam Rasayan manufactured products for over 53 domestic and international customers, including 17 multinational companies.

  • The company has posted revenue growth of ~24% CAGR between FY2018 to FY2020.
  • The company has posted revenue growth of 45.0% for the nine month period ending December 2021.
  • The Government of India has recognized the Company as a three-star export house.
  • It has developed a strong R&D structure to drive company growth
  • Anupam Rasayan IPO price of Rs. 555 is very steep and company is seeking PE multiples of over 80x on the diluted post IPO equity capital (FY21E) and thus issue is very aggressively priced.
  • Company’s margins are likely to improve post IPO due to debt reduction but the valuations being demanded are more than the established and reputed peers like PI industries, SRF which have much better margins and scale.
  • Anupam Rasayan IPO was last reported to be commanding a GMP of ~Rs. 190-200.
  • I may apply on Anupam Rasayan IPO only if I sense a definite listing gain opportunity in the stock at the last minute as well coupled with a strong QIB response. I may even give it a miss due to steep pricing.
