Subsequent Developments

SP Apparels Buyback 2022


  1. Asking price leaves little scope for capital appreciation.The sudden spurt in profits just before IPO needs a careful study.The steady increase in top line appears to be on account of depreciation of the INR to a major extent.The brand crocodile is a ripoff of the Lacoste brand.Earnings in GBP/ Euro are going to face the BREXIT aftermath of currency depreciation.TESCO does not sell top end products . It mainly caters to lower end of the market where margins are already low..Company appears to be mainly selling to Tesco. The sector itself is crowded and China, Taiwan etc are big players. The garment industry survives by exploiting the labor . I feel there are better companies in this sector itself and hence no compelling reasons to put my money in this IPO to enrich the promoters.

    • True, the books look cooked up. Avoid at every cost. Instead of apparels, may be they should get into food business since they are so good at cooking stuff.

  2. For me, Link intime is the biggest factor to avoid SP Apparels. I have got no allotment in the last four IPOs all managed by link intime, my badluck or coincidence.
