Important things to note about the Company:


Top reasons to consider the IPO:


1. The revenue CAGR of the company increased at a CAGR of 15.36% and the profit for the year has increased at a CAGR of 22.75%from Fiscal 2022 to Fiscal 2023.


2. The company has been doing BIS Hallmarking to all its gold jewellery since 2012, much prior to the mandatory use of BIS Hallmark which started in 2021. The act of the company to ensure transparency in its operations has increased the trust in the company which is a major strength of the company.


3. Senco Gold Limited has an experienced management team and institutional investor support which is a key contributor to the sustainable growth of the company.


4. The company offers a wide variety ranging from festive collections to daily wear. This optimal product mix helps in increasing the overall profit margins of the company.


Risk factors to watch out in the IPO:


1. The company operates in a highly competitive market where there are several gold and jewellery companies that are well established, for example, Tanishq by TATA, Malabar Gold, etc. If these companies offer products at competitive prices, it would be a sign of threat to the company.


2. The company was subjected to a “search and seizure” operation by the Income tax department in the past, which has resulted in taxation and criminal proceedings being initiated against our Company and our Individual Promoter. Any adverse outcome of such proceedings might have a negative impact on the business.


3. Negative cash flows from operating and investing activities have been experienced in previous fiscal years, and there is no guarantee that the company will not encounter negative cash flows in the future.


4. Lastly, we know the prices of gold and diamond are volatile and dependent on many national and international factors, this might affect the revenue and profitability of the company.



Crisp Insights:

  • Current Grey Market Premium is 125.

  • Business looks well positioned to capitalize on the growing demand of jewellery and luxury goods in the country.
