Rolex Rings IPO: Assessment

  • The Indian bearing market is estimated at ₹ 12,000 crore. Bearing Rings form one of the most critical and largest raw material cost for the bearings sector and at ~₹ 2,200 crores.
  • Rolex Rings Limited is one of the top five forging companies in India (Source: ICRA Report)
  • The forged bearing rings contribute 54% of its Rs. 616 cr revenue in FY21. Rest is made up by Auto components.
  • Rolex Rings derives 56% revenues from exports.
  • The Company currently has a credit rating of CARE BB; Stable i.e. moderate risk of default regarding timely servicing of financial obligations issued by Care Ratings. During a period of July 2017 to June 2019, the Company’s credit rating had been downgraded to CARE D (indicating default or expected to be in default soon) on account of ongoing delays in servicing of its debt obligations.
  • Sales for the FYE 2021 was down 7% to Rs. 7844.13 crore precipitated by COVID impact on auto industry.
  • On the Post issue Equity share capital, the PE works out to about 28.2x.
  • There is no listed bearing ring manufacturing company. But it can be compared to some forging companies like Bharat Forge, MM Forfe, RK Forge which command higher PE. However on an EV/EBITDA basis the cimmpnay is priced higher than some peers and this issue has been priced aggressively.
  • Rolex Rings in 2013 entered corporate debt restructuring (CDR), as it faced problems in servicing the debt taken for expansion post the global meltdown in 2007. Company is likely to exit CDR in March 2022 on Rs. 34 cr repayment of restructured debt. The company also faced some slowdown in 2018. undertaken in 2007, faced global meltdown post Lehman crisis.
  • Rolex Rings IPO was last reported to be commanding a GMP of Rs. 490.
  • There are favorable sectoral tailwinds for auto ancillary and forging companies.
  • I intend to apply in Rolex Rings IPO despite an aggressive pricing for possible listing gains or for short term only.
