Rolex Rings IPO was subscribed 143.58 times by Qualified Institutional Buyers (QIB) while Non-Institutional Investors (NII) had bid for the issue a whopping 360 times. The retail investor quota was subscribed 24.49 times, translating to an overall subscription of 130.44 times. Post issue, the promoter shareholding has been trimmed to 57.64% now while the Public shareholding has risen to 42.36%.
The company is one of the top five forging companies in India, according to ICICI Direct. The client base of Rolex Rings consists of leading global bearing manufacturers such as SKF, Timken, Schaeffler, NEI & NRB Bearings. Rolex Rings has reported profits for the last four financial years. In the previous fiscal year, the company reported a net profit of Rs 87 crore, up from Rs 53 crore in the financial year 2019-20. The concern surrounding the company stems from its default on loan payment in 2013. Post restructuring of the same debt, a significant portion of the promoter shareholding has been pledged and will remain so till at least March next year.
Analysts at ICICI Direct believe that the Rolex Rings IPO was priced at P/E of 28.2x (post issue) FY21. “A sticky clientele, increasing share of business amongst existing customers, improving operational efficiencies led by better utilisation and exit from CDR remain key catalyst for Rolex Rings,” the brokerage firm had said while pinning a ‘subscribe’ rating on the IPO.
Meanwhile, Marwardi Financial Services had a ‘Subscribe with caution’ rating on the issue. “We assign “Subscribe (With Caution)” rating to this IPO as company is one of the leading forging manufacturers with geographically diversified revenue base and is available at reasonable valuation as compared to its peers. However, the client concentration risk and CDR debt restructuring in the past keeps us cautious at the same time from a longer-term perspective,” they said.
