Before we review the prospects of IndiaBulls Power, we would like to know what is the basis on which SEBI clears these IPOs. Power projects are Long Gestation Projects and not Dot Com Businesses which can start making money immediately [They never made either ;-).
IndiaBulls Power Ltd – IPL IPO Review and Recommendation:
IPL will have a combined installed capacity of 6,615MW in Maharashtra and Chhattisgarh post the completion of these projects with lot more projects in the evaluation stage, all of them expected to go on stream by 2013 / 2014.
IPL has been granted coal linkages by the Ministry of Coal for its Amravati Phase I Power Project and the Nashik Power Project. The company has also received letters of assurances for the supply of coal. IPL has entered into a long-term PPA with Tata Power Trading Company Ltd (TPTCL) for the sale of up to 1,000MW of power proposed to be generated at the Amravati Phase I Power Project.
Retail Portion of 10.2 crore shares @ Rs 40 to Rs 45 / share
IndiaBulls Promoters have pumped in Money at Rs 10 just just less than 2 years ago and have allotted themselves 1:1 BONUS so effectively Rs 5 / share and now they want Rs 45 / Share from you. On what basis should we invest our hard earned money in this shell Company / project which has no cash flow?
Why should you AVOID IndiaBulls Power Ltd IPO:
The promoters have ABSOLUTELY NO experience in Power Projects and is not a speculative finance business like stock broking in which they are.
All its future earnings are highly sensitive to its ability to complete projects on time.
The estimated costs and funding requirements for projects, other than Amravati Phase I Power Project, have been computed on the basis of management estimates [Management has no Experience in Power projects] and has not been independently appraised by any organization or institution.
We have MORE and MORE Questions than answers and hence my only question is WHY SHOULD I INVEST MY Money in such business ? You can BUY the same stock later during market correction, like Reliance Power Ltd. Don’t tell me we will not see a market correction until 2013 🙂
Sometimes INACTIVITY saves lot of money
