Stove Kraft IPO: Assessment

  • Issue represents 32% of post issue capital.
  • Only 10% of the Stove Kraft IPO is offered to retail. This is due to losses made by the company in FY18.
  • Super jump in profits in H1Fy21 and poor performance in earlier years is sometimes indicative of dress up before the IPO issue. This also looks attributed to lower cost on travelling, advertisement on account of Covid-19.
  • It cannot be said with certainty that good show in H1FY21 will be sustained in future.
  • Stove Kraft IPO has been paged at 34.5x PE on TTM basis. On FY20 basis, the Company’s IPO priced its issue at 395x PE on FY20 earnings.
  • Company has shown TTK Prestige, Hawkins Cookers and Butterfly Gandhimati as its listed peers.
  • The company has contracts with e-commerce majors like as Amazon, Flipkart for the sale of its products.
  • Stove Kraft has strong manufacturing base with 80 percent of its products being manufactured locally while the rest is imported.
  • Anchor response has been god and current GMP is reported in 100+ range.
  • Looking at past performance, Stove Kraft IPO seems to be priced rather aggressively.
  • From my stand point, Stove Kraft IPO is not a fully clear case and is under watch. Despite lackluster performance in past, it could also be an emerging brand in kitchen ware space and hence needs to be tracked. I would apply only if there is strong QIB demand for the IPO.
