Engineers India FPO – A Value BUY

  • Date – 29th Jan 2016; Issue Period: today, one day only
  • CMP: Rs 194; FPO Floor Pricing: Rs 189/share. Retail gets a 5% discount
  • Mid Cap – Mkt Cap 6500 crores
  • Advice: Investors can BUY with a 2 year perspective


  • Engineers India is a PSU Mini Ratna engaged in providing engineering and technical services and turnkey projects for the Oil & Gas sector since 1965. It has broadened its activities to related areas. With a HQ in Delhi, company has branches offices in India and abroad.
  • EIL’s growth slowed in the last few years, in line with a slowdown in investments in the sector.
  • However we feel that with the end of the subsidy regime in Indian Oil & gas, and the fall in crude oil prices, the sector is in a turnaround situation. Firms are seeing good refining margins, marginal subsidy issues and robust demand. They are gearing up for capacity and technology upgradation.
  • While revenue and profits at EIL have fallen in 3 years, the share price too fell proportionally.
  • EIL has conservatively preserved cash, built additional capabilities and new growth areas and is poised to recover financially as the sector turns around.
  • Overall Opinion: We feel EIL is a value BUY for investors in this FPO.
