  2. This company’s IPO approval is set to lapse on 28 December so it is bringing IPO. It will be a quick affair and may be good for investors.

  3. There are some concerns about this company:

    First – Shares pledged by the promoters is one major worry. Just before the IPO, 35% of promoter shares were pledged and the clean prospectus is only for IPO purpose, the pledge will be recreated if promoters fail to pay Rs 200 crore.

    Second – Many of the firms in promoter group are in real estate and construction business. Real estate is a big no for me. Having seen several good companies consumed by real estate, I don’t like businesses which diversify into real estate, either directly or indirectly. Real estate is often used as a conduit to siphon off money.

    Third – Past investment by Prince Pipes promoters in Vikas Ecotech. Just look at the stock chart of Vikas Ecotech and you will know it is a fraud company. You may believe that it may be a genuine investment error but I have my reservations. People at CEO level know a lot more about their investments and their fellow CEOs.

    Fourth – Prince Pipes filed red herring prospectus in December but it contains financials only till June quarter! It is a big red flag for me. It doesn’t take this long to prepare quarterly results. Many companies show decent profits before IPO by adjusting inventories, delaying payments to vendors etc only to post horrible numbers in the quarter after the IPO. If it turns out to be such case with Prince, god save investors!

  4. This analysis of prince pipes ipo by gordhandas panjwani is an eye opener. These are enough warning signals for me to avoid this. If I apply, I may be able to make someprofit but can lose a lot if things go wrong. I’m staying away from this.
