The Most Profitable Research this year from JainMatrix Investments

  • Apex Frozen Foods Ltd.
  • A 225% gain for our Subscribers for purchases from open markets in just 3 months. 
  • The IPO allottees still holding have got a 324% gain in 3 months. 

At JainMatrix Investments, we’ve done a lot of research reports in the last year. We’ve had our share of (many) successes and (a few) failures. This has been a good year for the stock markets so no surprises that our success rate has been high. Even so, lets focus on the best success we have had this year.

On 20th August 2017, we published an IPO report on Apex Frozen Foods Ltd. This was a public report, and you can see it even now at Apex Frozen Foods IPO – An Apex Buy.

jainmatrix investments, apex frozen foods

The subscription for this IPO was not impressive, it went just 6.1 times subscribed, not much by this years standards.

But at JainMatrix Investments we were very positive about it. So much so that before the firm’s listing on 4th Sept, we published a Pre-Listing Note on Apex. This was a Premium report, available only to subscribers, but the Summary is shared below:

JainMatrix Investments, Apex Frozen Foods IPO

The listing was good but not very impressive, it closed at Rs 210, a rise of 20% on first day. Thereafter, restricted by its 5% upper and lower price limit, it rose 5% every day for a few days, then actually fell by 5% for a few days too.

Our Subscribers who took our instructions got ample opportunity to buy this share below Rs 230.

And very soon, with the seafood industry doing well, and some news flow such as good results declared for the Half Year and Quarter ended Sept 2017, the share has done very well, see graphic.

jainmatrix investments, apex frozen IPO

Today we are happy to note that investors who took our recommendation to buy the share below Rs 230 have seen a 225% gain. IPO applicants still holding today have got a 324% gain on their investment in just 3 months. 

Clearly the share has by far exceeded our 1.75 year target of Rs 469, to reach Rs 742 today. This is a success beyond our imagination.

This is a marketing article. At this point we do not express any opinion of BUY, SELL or HOLD on Apex Frozen Foods. We are just happy to share with you that this is Our Most Profitable Research this year. 

Happy investing,

Punit Jain

jainmatrix investments, bharat 22 etf nfo

Subscription, Allotment Price and NFO details 

  • The BH22 is an open-ended index ETF which listed on 28th Nov, 2017. The investment objective is to provide returns like the S&P BSE Bharat 22 Index.
  • The NFO received the highest subscription for any new fund offer (NFO) in the history of Indian MF industry. The ETF was subscribed about 4 times as the amount to be raised was Rs. 8,000 cr. and it received applications for around Rs. 32,000 cr. The NFO attracted 3.35 lakh retail investor applications.
  • Due to the excellent response, the ETF issue size was raised to Rs. 14,500 cr. A NFO discount of 3% was offered to all investors including retail, retirement funds, QIBs and non-institutional investors.
  • Retail investors who applied with Rs. 2,00,000 (Retail cap) were allotted 5,560 units at Rs. 35.97/unit (including the 3% discount). Retail applicants appear to have received 100% allotment this time.
  • Currently the ETF is trading at Rs. 37.42 translating into a gain of 4.03%. This means any retail investor who applied for the max. allowable limit of Rs. 2,00,000 has notionally gained Rs. 8,060. This is because of the discount as well as rise in the S&P BSE Bharat 22 Index.
  • You can check the index value as well as the ETF value using the following link. Bharat 22 ETF Price – http://www.moneycontrol.com/india/stockpricequote/miscellaneous/iciciprudentialmutualfund/ICI15

Overall Opinion

  • This ETF is set to create good value for the investor as profit making PSUs, PSUs undergoing reforms and private sector firms have been bundled together. ETFs are also advantageous in terms of management costs & liquidity. Also with the discounts given in BH22, we feel that this is a good long term buy for low risk equity investor and is comparable to the Balanced MFs.
  • If you have missed out Bharat 22 ETF in the NFO, you can also BUY it from the open market.
  • Investors can BUY with a 3 year perspective.

Summary

  • Overview: The BH22 is PSU heavy open-ended ETF scheme. The BH22 will cover 6 sectors and 22 firms including PSUs, PSBs and a few blue chip private firms. BH22 has a 20% cap on each sector and a 15% cap on each stock. The Rs 8,000 crore NFO is available at a discount of 3% on the Reference Bharat 22 Index.

  • Opinion: Investors can SUBSCRIBE to this ETF offering with a 3 year perspective.

See our past coverage of CPSE ETF NFO in Mar 2014, review in Sept 2015, the CPSE ETF FFO in Jan 2017 and a Video, and finally the CPSE ETF FFO 2 in Mar 2017.

Here is a note on Bharat 22 ETF (BH22)

Introduction  

  • The BH22 is an open-ended index ETF which is going to be listed on the Exchanges. The investment objective is to provide returns like the S&P BSE Bharat 22 Index. The amount to be raised is Rs. 8,000 cr.
  • The BH22 consists of 22 blue chip Govt. of India (GoI) holdings including PSUs, Public Sector Banks and the strategic holdings of GoI through SUUTI (Specified Undertaking of Unit Trust of India). BH22 is the 2nd ETF from GoI after CPSE ETF launched in 2014. Both these will speed up GoI’s disinvestment plans.
  • The BH22 will cover 6 sectors of basic materials, energy, finance, FMCG, industrials and utilities. The SUUTI firms (L&T, ITC and Axis Bank) have a 40% weight on the index. Other big names include SBI, Power Grid, NTPC and ONGC (5-9% each). The ones which would have a lower weight include NALCO, Indian Oil, Coal India, Bharat Electronics, Bank of Baroda, NBCC, Indian Bank and SJVN.
  • The mechanism of the ETF at launch would be as follows:

jainmatrix investments, bharat 22 etf nfo

Fig 1 – Bharat 22 ETF Mechanism

  • NFO price: The NFO Units being offered will have a FV of Rs. 10/- each and a premium of the difference between NFO Allotment Price and the FV. The NFO Allotment Price would be equal to 1/100th of S&P BSE Bharat 22 Index less discount.
  • In this offer 25% each is reserved for 1) Retail 2) Retirement Funds 3) QIB / NII and 4) anchor investors.
  • Discount: A discount of 3% on the NFO Reference Market Price of the underlying shares of S&P BSE Bharat 22 Index shall be offered to NFO of the Scheme by GOI.
  • The scheme is being managed by ICICI Prudential Asset Management Company Ltd. Asia Index will be the index provider and the index will be rebalanced annually.

Investment Details of BH22

  • The Scheme will invest at least 95% of assets in stocks of the Bharat 22 Index. It may invest in safe Money Market Instruments upto a max. of 5% of assets.
  • The AMC will use a passive or indexing approach to achieve the Scheme’s investment objective.
  • Here are Sectoral Asset Allocation, Historic Returns and Analysis of the 22 companies as part of this ETF.

  •  15 of the 22 firms are Large Cap giving some stability to this ETF composition.
  • Dividend: The Trustees may declare Dividend to Unit holders subject to the availability of surplus, at their discretion. If the Fund declares Dividend, the NAV will stand reduced by that amount.
  • Minimum Investment: It is Rs. 5,000 and in multiples of Re. 1 thereafter, with a maximum amount of Rs. 2 lakhs in retail category. Non Institutional Investors and HNIs may apply for over Rs 2 lakhs.

  • Listing:The units of the Scheme will be listed on NSE and BSE within 5 days after allotment. The allotment date of Units will be within 5 business days of offer application period. There may be an additional offering depending on NFO response.

How has the CPSE ETF performed so far?

From an issue price of Rs. 17.5/unit in March 2014 (for Retail), the CPSE trades at Rs. 30.4 giving a gain of 21% simple annual. The CPSE ETF FFO 2 launched in Jan 2017 had allotment at Rs. 25.21, giving a gain of 20.6% (in 10 months). So the energy focused ETF has so far generated above Index average returns.

Differences between CPSE ETF and BH22 ETF

  • The CPSE ETF comprised 10 PSU stocks from the Oil & Gas and energy sector. However the BH22 ETF is diversified among 6 sectors and 22 firms with a 20% cap on each sector and a 15% cap on each stock. Hence this ETF is more balanced across sectors and firms.
  • The GoI has cherry picked stocks which are into sectors where large reforms are underway.
  • This fund even includes Private sector firms like L&T, ITC and Axis Bank.
  • The CPSE ETF fund is larger. It has raised Rs 11,500 in 3 offerings from 2014 – 17.

Pros and Positives of BH22

  • This ETF has a lower management charge and the expense ratio is 0.0095% of daily average net assets. Also the maximum recurring expenses that can be charged shall not exceed 1.5% of daily net assets.
  • The fund will offer 3% discount to the NFO subscribers.
  • The 5 year share returns are 13.8% CAGR as against Sensex of 13.9%. See Fig 3. However the 1 year performance has been better at 22.5% as against 20.5% for Sensex.
  • Dividend yield for the stocks is 2.42% which is moderate, but higher compared to Nifty/Sensex, see Fig 4.
  • The constituents of BH22 have a lower P/E & P/B as compared to Nifty 50/S&P BSE Sensex. See Fig 5.

jainmatrix investments, bharat 22 etf nfo

Fig 5 – Valuations and Dividend Yields

  • The BH22 is diversified among 6 sectors with caps by sector and by stock. This gives leverage in the form of both secular & cyclical growth prospects.
  • Like the CPSE, the BH22 may be popular among Pension Funds, new equity investors and retirees.
  • Many of the firms have wonderful assets, the family silver of the GoI. Some even enjoy monopoly status in their sectors. With a resurgence in GoI governance and programs such as ‘Make in India’, Bank Recapitalization and focus on Defense and infrastructure, many firms have good prospects.
  • GoI is asking for higher dividends from PSUs and allowing them operational freedom to exploit assets and be more productive. This will benefits investors also. See report,  A Repurpose for our PSUs.

Cons and Negatives of BH22

  • There is no clarity on the future of GoI shareholding in these firms – will they be fully divested, or sold in a strategic sale, or expanded into JVs, or simply retained with GoI majority in the long run.
  • This BH22 ETF based divestment by GoI, like the CPSE, is likely to be repeated at a future date.
  • We are not sure if the high dividend paid by the PSUs will be passed on to the unit holders (either as NAV gain or Dividend) or used for recurring expenses, as per NFO document. The CPSE ETF 2014 too has not paid dividend for 3 years. The 2.42% dividend yield in BH22 involves substantial monies.
  • The average beta of these stocks is 1.28 indicating higher volatility than indices.
  • These stocks performance depends on revenue growth, which has been inconsistent in recent years.
  • Many of these firms depend on GoI policies and monopoly situations to grow. Some are externally constrained by weak infrastructure that hampers distribution.
  • Any unexpected election results at the State or Center can delay reforms and affect BH22 performance.
  • A few firms are into financing power projects. The power sector is yet to see a revival and NPAs here are a key concern. As long as this problem is not resolved, these firms may face financial troubles.
  • Within the energy basket, there are upstream and downstream oil firms. Upstream firms do well when crude prices rise as their realizations go up, whereas downstream firms do well when crude falls as margins expand. The energy basket might be balanced, but together these firms may do just average.
  • Coal India recently hiked wages by 20%. Also there is a pollution aspect to coal usage. The share has performed badly. Any adverse government reforms could impact its financials in the short term.
  • ITC is a firm that is mainly into cigarette sales. This is a harmful product and in USA the industry players are in a sunset mode due to legal action – class action suits and massive penalties for compensating unwell consumers and their families.

Overall Opinion

  • The BH22 appears better than CPSE on several counts like sector diversity, balance and higher mkt cap.
  • This ETF is set to create good value for the investor as profit making PSUs, PSUs undergoing reforms and private sector firms have been bundled together. Given the advantage of an ETF in terms of cost & liquidity along with the discounts given by the GoI, we feel that the BH22 ETF is a good long term buy for value conscious investors.
  • This product appears attractive to the low risk equity investor and is comparable to the Balanced MFs.
  • Risks – lack of strategic clarity on PSU firms, and Political – a surprise election result could affect PSUs.
  • Investors can BUY with a 3 year perspective.

Here is our report on RXO Footwears Ltd. (RXO)

  • RXO’s revenue in FY17 was Rs. 1,741 crores and profits Rs. 123 cr. It has 4,855 employees.
  • RXO has its HO in Delhi and mfg. at Bahadurgarh (H’yana), Bhiwadi (Raj.) and Haridwar (U’khand).
  • RXO stepped into the footwear industry in 1976 when brothers Mukund Lal Dua and Ramesh Kumar Dua started off with the mfg. of slippers and subsequently expanded the range.

  • Unlike Bata and Metro Shoes, RXO has taken a conscious decision to stay away from leather products where the prices may be higher but the market size is much smaller.
  • RXO sells its products through 275 exclusive COCO stores {Company Owned and Co. Operated}, large format retail stores and e-commerce.

  • Key Executives are: Ramesh Dua (MD), Mukund Lal Dua (Whole Time Director), Sushil Batra (CFO), Gaurav Dua (ED Marketing) and Ritesh Dua (ED Finance, Exports and HR).
  • Shareholding pattern % is: Promoters 74.9, DII 1.8, QFI 4.5, Individuals 5.0 and Others 13.8.

Business Notes, Strategies and Events

  • RXO reported a 1% rise in profit YoY at Rs. 37 cr. in Q1 FY18. Revenues grew by 19% to Rs. 483 cr. in Q1 FY18 YoY. Revenue growth was high in Q1 FY18 due to pre-ponement of sales prior to implementation of GST. However, the same kind of growth is not expected in Q2 FY18, but it may revive in subsequent quarters. This PAT growth was flat due to sharp increase in cost of materials by 37.1% YoY.
  • Management expects double digit revenue growth (mid-to-high teen) for FY2018 driven by improvement in sales volume and better realization (due to improvement in revenue mix).
  • GST has improved prospects as footwear priced up to Rs. 500 is now taxed at 5% (earlier 9.5%) and the rest at 18% (earlier 23.1-29.5%). This is a positive for organized footwear players.
  • RXO changed its 40-year old logo in Jan 2017 to stay relevant amid the changing consumer preferences.
  • RXO has always owned the resources like land, machinery, factory etc. to keep a check on quality. It has recently adopted the franchise model to accelerate reach in untapped markets.
  • In 2009 Bata had filed a case against RXO in the Delhi HC accusing it of infringement of its brand Sparx. The issue was settled out of the court in 2015 in favor of RXO.
  • RXO is setting up its 9th mfg. unit in Bhiwadi, Rajasthan with a capex of Rs 100 cr. to make the Hawai brand of footwear as current capacity is fully utilized. This should boost revenues.
  • eCommerce is an important channel with an Online Presence with shopatrelaxo.com and Online Shopping Websites like Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, Jabong, etc.

Industry Outlook

  • The total footwear industry is of Rs. 55,000 cr. and organised sector is of Rs. 10,000 cr.
  • Relaxo has a 3% market share within the entire industry and 20% of the organized footwear market in value terms, and 5-6% in volume terms. It sold 13.5 cr. pairs of footwear in FY17.
  • The domestic footwear market in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of 15% from FY16-20. The key drivers for the footwear segment will be: a) increased adoption owing to versatility in usage, and b) shift from unbranded to branded.
  • Men’s footwear dominates this market with 54% share, next is women (37%) and children/ school (9%). But women’s segment will outpace Men’s to take 41% of the market by FY 2020.
  • Branded footwear market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20% to account for 50% of the organized market by FY 2020 from current 40%.
  • Footwear market is among the most organized categories in the country with 26% of the organized share with presence of EBOs (Exclusive Brand Outlets). The unorganized pie of 74% will grow at 14% while the organized market will grow at 18% CAGR to account for 29% of the market by FY21. (Source RHP)

Stock Evaluation, Performance and Returns

  • The share price has grown at 54.2% CAGR over 5 years and at 34.6% over 2 years. This includes a split in Nov 2013 (FV 5 to FV 1) and a bonus in July 2015 (1:1). See Fig 6.
  • The FY17 remuneration of Mukund Dua and Ramesh Dua is high at Rs. 9.12 cr. each. Under Companies Act, the ceiling in pay to key managers is 10% of profits. This limit is being given as remuneration.

Fig 6 – Price History

  • Revenues, EBITDA and PAT have grown at 19.8%, 24.1% and 30.9% CAGR from FY09-17. We can see improvements in Operating & Profit margins even as Revenues grew steadily. See Fig 7.
  • Dividend growth has been good. RXO has generated positive Free Cash Flow in the last 8 years indicating conservative financial management, Fig 8.

Fig 7 – Quarterly Financials / Fig 8 – Cash Flow 

jainmatrix investments, relaxo footwear

  • The historical average for PE is at 37.6 times of the last 5 years. However in the last 2 years, it has risen to 45.2 times, implying a re-rating. Currently RXO has PE of 56.4 times and is the top quadrant. See Fig 9.

jainmatrix investments, relaxo footwear

Fig 9 – Price and PE Chart / Fig 10 – Price and EPS TTM Chart

  • The earnings of RXO grew 4x from Jan12 – Jan16. In Fig 10, we show the EPS growth in a channel. Employee costs rose sharply from Mar 2016 affecting the EPS growth. Later demonetization also affected business.
  • ROCE and ROE are 25.7% and 22.6% respectively which is robust.
  • The D/E of the firm has fallen from over 0.96 to 0.38. This is a positive. As per mgmt. in Q1 FY18, RXO’s interest costs fell over 50%. This is likely to drive the margins up.
  • However earnings revival will be witnessed now due to benefits arising from GST, fall in interest costs, premiumization of product portfolio and adoption of the franchise model for faster expansion.

Benchmarking and Financial Estimates

We present a benchmarking exercise with listed peers in similar product categories. Since Mirza Intl. is focused on exports, it is not strictly comparable. See Exhibit 11.

  • In terms of P/B the valuations appear high. However this is explained by RXO strategy of owning the mfg. plants. P/E appears little high. RXO has good growth and a low D/E ratio compared to the peers.
  • RXO leads on margins, which reflects on good sales and costs controls. They are likely to improve as the management continues to focus on premiumization products while also focusing on cost reduction.
  • The return ratios are robust with a leading RoE score. The dividend yield is fair.
  • In all we can conclude that RXO looks more attractive than Khadim whose IPO is due.

Exhibit 11 – Benchmarking / Exhibit 12 – Two year Projections  

Financial Projections: We present 2 year financial projections for RXO, see Exhibit 12.

Strengths                                                     

  • Key new trends include growth in non-leather footwear and eCommerce. RXO has only a small fraction of leather, and may benefit from this. On eCommerce RXO has its own website and tie ups with popular portals to grow online presence.
  • Strong brand equity strength & Celebrity endorsement: RXO has many brands, and has created good brand equity by endorsing celebrities to connect brands with customers, like Salman Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shahid Kapoor and Shruti Haasan. These activities positively impact volume growth.
  • GST: 70% of RXO’s sales falls in < Rs 500 price which has been positively impacted by lower GST.
  • Improved Financials: RXO has reduced debt over 5 years and current D/E is at 0.2 times, lowering interest costs in Q1 FY18. Along with premiumisation these will improve margins in the medium term.
  • RXO is a well-managed firm financially. The return ratios have historically been high and the cash flow management is good. This is a positive from an investment perspective.
  • Exports is a priority and will help RXO ramp up volumes in future.
  • RXO owns all its mfg. facilities. This allows better quality control and higher returns.
  • While the two brothers have been running the firm for 40 years, the next generation appears to have smoothly taken charge along with senior professionals. There should be continuity at RXO.
  • Focus on fashion: The key driver at RXO is to be in-sync with changes in fashion for consumers. Many of the new brands, design changes and premiumization initiatives are to tap consumer behavior. The new logo of Relaxo has also been created to appeal to the younger crowd.
  • A fall in rubber and raw material costs in recent times has helped RXO to improve margins.
  • The initiative around franchisee network growth will help RXO expand reach and availability.
  • Capacity utilization at RXO is 60% so there is ample room to grow volumes.

Risks and Challenges

  • The IPO of Khadim which is ongoing may throw a spotlight on the sector, and make valuations expensive. RXO has already gained close to 20% in the last 1 month.
  • Also some investors in Relaxo may like to exit it and enter Khadims.
  • High valuations – at a PE of 56 times, a lot of growth and profitability expectations are baked into the price. Any non-delivery of such performance will result in a big correction of price.
  • Any change in Govt. policies, and GST tinkering can affect the company’s performance.
  • Rubber and crude oil prices volatility can affect the costs structure and margins. The key raw materials, ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) etc., are crude derivatives and hence prices follow the crude cycle with a lag effect. A sharp rise in these crude prices could significantly affect input cost.
  • Intensifying competition – entry of MNCs such as Nike, Adidas, Puma and many top brands can affect RXO. However our feel is that currently these firm’s products are priced much higher and so will not affect RXO.
  • Macro-economic factors like a downturn in the economy, unforeseen political and social upheavals, natural calamities and below normal monsoon can affect RXO.
  • Any sharp fluctuations in dollar price can adversely impact the cost of imported raw materials.
  • In family owned businesses there is always a risk of breakups and business separation.
  • High promoter compensation – it is at prescribed limits.

Overall Opinion, Outlook and Recommendation

  • In India the per capita consumption of footwear is 1.66 per year compared to 3 pairs globally and 6-7 pairs in advanced countries. This indicates high potential demand.
  • RXO has a positioning of a Value for Money but visible and good quality footwear. There is a massive unorganized sector in footwear. With GST and other tax initiatives, RXO may capture a lot of marketshare vacated by unorganized sector while taking up premiumization and brand strengthening.
  • The management is planning to expand faster using the franchise model. FY17 was flat financially on account of demonization and higher employee expenses. The margins and volumes are both likely to improve this year on account of reduced interest & tax costs, introduction of more value added products and a favorable macro environment.
  • RXO has adapted itself over the years to changing consumer needs and preferences. This financially reflects well on the company in terms of superior return ratios and good cash flow management.
  • Valuations are expensive at P/E of 56.1, but good companies tend to be richly valued for long durations.
  • We project a target price for RXO of Rs. 905 by May 2019, a rise of 55% absolute and 33% annualized.
  • Investors can BUY this share with a 2 year investment horizon.

Bharat Financial Inclusion – News Based Exit from MSC Model Portfolio

  • Date: 30th Oct 2017
  • Bharat Financial Inclusion is dropped from the JainMatrix Investments – Mid and Small Cap (Multi Bagger) Model Portfolio

News Update

  • The merger of micro finance lender Bharat Financial Inclusion (BFIL) and IndusInd Bank (IIB) was announced on 14th Oct. BFIL will merge into IIB in a swap where BFIL shareholders will receive 639 shares of IIB for every 1,000 shares of BFIL. On the day of announcement, the premium on BFIL was 12.6%. It has now narrowed to 7.4%.
  • The merger offers mutual synergies on network, customers and products. IIB will grow its rural network and increase priority lending. There are synergies with cost reduction and BFIL will lower the cost of wholesale deposits. The merger is mutually beneficial.
  • The merger is expected to complete over the next 6-9 months. The timelines are as follows:

jainmatrix investments, bharat financial inclusion

Source: BFIL News Release

Record of Performance

  • BFIL had entered the MSC at Rs. 427 in Feb 2015. We had reported on BFIL (formerly SKS Microfinance) in Sept 2015, see link SKS Microfinance – A Magical Mix jainmatrix investments, bharat financial inclusion
  • We exited BFIL on 21st Oct at Rs. 995 (entry at Rs. 427 in Feb 2015). It gained 133% absolute and 37.8% CAGR in 2.5 years.
  • The MSC Model Portfolio has a good 4.5 year Track Record 

Opinion and Reasons

  • BFIL would cease to exist post the merger. Hence if investors continue to hold BFIL they will become IIB shareholders.
  • BFIL is a good mid-cap stock with appreciation potential as an independent firm.
  • IIB is 1) a large cap Bank of Rs 97,000 crores mkt cap. 2) It has been a high performance stock in the past 3) However we at JainMatrix do not track IIB 4) It will not meet the objectives of MSC Model Portfolio. So BFIL is dropped from the JainMatrix MSC Model Portfolio.
  • Subscribers may exit BFIL and enter the other BUY rated stocks of the MSC Model Portfolio.
  • They may also, at their own discretion, choose to become IIB shareholders. But JainMatrix is not covering this stock.

MF Industry Outlook in India

  • The economy has seen big financial events like demonetization, RERA, GST and a crackdown on black money and shell companies. All these have rekindled interest in financial assets as compared to real estate and gold which were popular earlier.
  • The regulations and disclosures around MFs have ensured that traceability and audit trails are quite clear in this industry. At the same time, SEBI has done a remarkable job of promoting the MFs as good entry level equity and debt products, so AUM growth has been good.
  • As of June 2017, there are 41 active AMCs in the market comprising 7 sponsored by PSBs, 2 by financial institutions, 25 by the private sector and other financial companies and 7 by foreign players (including JV’s).
  • The Indian MF industry is concentrated with the 10 large firms having 80% of the industry AUM. ICICI Prudential AMC, HDFC, Reliance, Birla Sun Life and SBI Funds are the 5 largest.
  • The MF industry witnessed a healthy growth in the past decade, with the AUM growing from Rs. 3,50,000 cr. (FY07), to Rs. 19,50,000 cr. (June 2017) growing at a CAGR of 18% over 10 years.
  • The growth in AUM has been supported by a favorable macro environment, the rise of capital markets, foreign fund inflows and growing investor awareness. During FY17, the fresh investments (or new sales) in MFs grew by 28% to Rs. 1,76,000 cr. in the FY 2017.
  • The Indian MF industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of 20% between FY18-22, with the AUM expected to grow to Rs. 45,00,000 cr. by Mar 2022. Growth rates are expected to be higher in FY18 and FY19 due to buoyant capital markets coupled with an increase in retail participation, after which the growth rate is expected to taper given the increase in scale.

  • The stock broking firms too perform very well when markets are in a bullish phase.

Financials of RNAMC

  • RNAMC’s revenues, EBITDA and PAT grew at 18.2%, 18.7% and 14.9% CAGR in 5 years, Fig 5.
  • RNAMC had a RoE of 21% in FY17 while the RoCE stands at 30.5%. The return ratios are high.
  • RNAMC declared a high dividend in FY17 as compared to FY16 in spite of weak financials. The PAT growth was 1.6% in FY17, but the dividend growth was 72%. Declaring high dividends right before the IPO in a year with poor financial growth is a negative.
  • RNAMC has been Free Cash Flow positive in 4 of the last 5 years. This is a positive.
  • The margins fell in FY17 impacting profitability, on account of a rise in administrative expenses, higher depreciation and expenses growth for that year.
  • RNAMC allotted equity shares to existing shareholders in a bonus issue on 11 Aug, 2017. It declared a bonus ratio of 50:1, and post the issue of bonus, the no. of shares stood at 58.75 cr. and post IPO it would jump to 61.20 cr. shares.
  • This means the asking FY17 P/E is 36.8 (pre-IPO) and 38.3 (diluted post-IPO).

Positives for RNAMC and the IPO

  • Reliance Mutual Fund is a top brand of 22 years vintage. RNAMC has a strong presence across India with subsidiaries in Singapore and Mauritius.
  • As a first AMC firm in India to list, there will be a scarcity premium to this IPO offering.
  • RNAMC has a strong focus on processes. They regularly monitor their current processes which have contributed significantly to their growth. RNAMC is certified on the International Quality Standard, ISO 9001:2008 and have implemented a robust Quality Management system. They have instituted well-documented operational processes, extensive trading systems and technology platforms.
  • RNAMC has a large and experienced management and investment team comprising of 44 professionals that manage their funds and provide advisory services. The senior investment team has an average 19 years of experience and are the key resources of to RNAMC.
  • In terms of financial performance, RNAMC has so far performed well. The margins and return ratios are high. The growth is above average and debt is low. Also RNAMC is in an industry likely to perform well over the next few years. These factors make investment in RNAMC attractive.
  • There is a bubble in IPOs with massive over subscription and unreasonable valuations in the recent past. We feel this is on account of high inflow of investment funds, and poor choices of expensive primary markets over more reasonable secondary markets. This may help this IPO offering.

Risks and Negatives for RNAMC and the IPO

  • The valuations are high side in terms of P/E at 38.3 and P/B at 6.15 times (adjusted post IPO).
  • In the past RNAMC’s reputation was built up with high profile star investors like Madhu Kela and Sunil Singhania. However, both have left RNAMC in the last 6 months. Madhu is a part time adviser to Reliance Capital and Sunil is now global head of Reliance Cap’s equity business. In fact in last 12 months, 3 top executives left. RNAMC may struggle to maintain business momentum in future.
  • Reliance Capital, the promoter of the RNAMC is part of the Anil Ambani Group. Other group companies are Reliance Power, Reliance Comm., Rel. Infra, Rel. Defense and Rel. Big Cinema. Many of these firms are not doing well financially and for shareholders. Reliance Power IPO in 2008 is still fresh in our minds. Reliance Comm. looks likely to shut down soon. Having said this, RNAMC is in the AMC business and has a fair reputation over the years.
  • AMCs are closely regulated by SEBI. The investment product industry in India has benefitted from the regulations, however it is also subject to changes or tightening of norms. For example in July 2014, the holding period for long-term capital gains tax on debt MFs was increased from 12 to 36 months. Thus regulatory changes can affect business in future.
  • SEBI has on 6 Oct 2017, issued a circular to categorize and rationalize the MF schemes so as to enable the investors to better evaluate the different options available and take informed investment decisions. Accordingly, the schemes are classified into 5 groups, i.e., equity schemes, debt, hybrid, solution oriented schemes and other schemes. These 5 groups collectively have 36 different categories of schemes under them. The circular states that, only 1 scheme per category is permitted to continue to exist/ be launched by a MF, with few exceptions. Since RNAMC runs 55 open-ended and 174 closed ended MF schemes, there may be a big consolidation required soon.
  • Competition from existing and new market participants offering investment products could reduce their market share or put downward pressure on their fees.

Overall Opinion and Recommendation

  • The MF industry is witnessing an unprecedented growth with AUM increasing 6 fold in 10 years. The number of new investors and their folios have grown by 66 lakh in the first 6 months of this year on account of strong participation from retail investors. The PMS sector is also doing well; and post Pension reforms, this sector is also coming under professional AMC purview.
  • Further Gold and real estate are a large proportion of Indian savings which have not generated significant returns. India is witnessing falling interest rates and thus FD and savings rates have fallen sharply and other metals as a store of wealth have proven to be costly. There is thus a trend of shift from physical assets to financial and risk assets in the Indian economy.
  • Reliance Nippon AMC is an established #3 market share player with a good 22 years of history.
  • At a P/E of 38.2 times, the valuations of the IPO appear to be high.
  • But a good track record, robust financial performance, sectoral tailwinds and a good management team makes this IPO attractive.
  • Promoter related image, senior level exits and regulatory uncertainties pose the key risks.
  • Opinion: Investors can SUBSCRIBE to this IPO with a 2 year perspective.
