Important things to note about the Company:


Top reasons to consider the IPO:


1. In the last 2 years, the revenues growth has been robust yet steady and the same can also be said about the profit growth which is up more than 3 fold in the last 2 years. Purely on the strength of the prospects of the sector, its product catalogue, its strong hold on the southern markets, and the track record. 


2. ROE above 20% is a fairly attractive ratio support to have. This is a business where a lot of costs get front-ended but once these costs are defrayed, the profits can multiply rapidly in later years. 



 3. The jewelry company has maintained an impressive rate of sweating assets as is evident from the asset turnover ratio. It has consistently averaged above 1.8X, which is a very good sign for a business that is constantly expanding and investing.


 4. “Vaibhav jewelers” offer diverse product designs at various price ranges to customers and is positioned to benefit as rural markets contribute to 58% of the jewellery demand in India, even after rise in gold prices or during post harvest seasons.


Risk Factors to watch out in the IPO:


1. Significant working capital requirements and need for financing making up ₹361 crore of working capital loans and ₹332 crore of outstanding capital loans as of 15 August 2023.


2. Concentration of the business in the state of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana which exposes it to socio-economic or geo-political risks.


3. Operates in a competitive market and faces competition from other jewellery retailers.


4. “Vaibhav jewelers” experienced negative cash flow from operating activities in FY21 and from financing activities in FY22 and FY23.



Crisp Insights:

  • Manoj Vaibhav Gems IPO GMP Today: The Company is commanding a GMP of NIL.

  • Manoj Vaibhav Gems GMP is weak and hence, investors need to be careful.

  • Manoj Vaibhav Gems IPO Review: While pricing of the IPO does matter here, what is more critical is the eventual PAT margins that will sustain and the ROE that can be held by the company. The idea lies in seeing how much of the unorganized jewellery market the company can capture in the coming years. Based on annualized FY24 earnings, the issue appears fully priced. Well-informed investors may plan moderate investments for the medium to long term.
