Update – A Snowman in the Summer Sun?


Snowman Logistics IPO Update

See Current Market Price

Date 12th Sept 2014

  • The IPO closed on 28th Aug with tremendous enthusiasm from investors. The issue was 60 times oversubscribed, a sign of a very positive mood for Indian markets in general and IPOs in particular.
  • Institutions oversubscribed 17 times, Retail 41 times and non-Institution (HNI + corporates) a stunning 222 times.
  • JainMatrix Investments has once again got it right – this IPO was a Buy recommendation and the listing looks successful for investors, so far.
  • Obviously the IPO pricing was at the upper end of Rs 47.
  • I expected this small 197 crore IPO to fly through in the very positive market, but this is a heavy downpour than a drizzle
  • It has collected 12,000 crores – 60 times its offering and 77 times its FY14 revenue.
  • My guess is that the success of the recent IPO, Wonderla Holidays has brought investors back to this platform.

Today’s Opinion 

  • Today Snowman Logistics has listed on the bourses, and at last check was already 68% up from the IPO price, at Rs 79
  • My opinion of SLL is captured in report below – that its an aggressively priced offering, but still worth investing at IPO price from a one year perspective.
  • I stay with this opinion, but we are now witnessing a financial flood whose fury cannot be gauged in the short term.
  • Investors who were lucky enough to be allotted shares are advised to maximize their short term profits and exit.
  • As I said recently, the IPO season of 2014 has now officially started.
