Even promoters subscribed to 8 lakh shares at Rs.225 per share.
The equity of the company is increasing from Rs.12.85 crores to Rs.16.45 crores, while its business would see a rise of about 200% to 300%. The company would be creating tangible assets which would strengthen the balance sheet of the company. Even from the existing operations and on expanded equity base, the share is issued at a PER of 8.20 which is quite attractive. Post expansion topline and bottomline would improve sharply, thus giving lot of scope of appreciation to investors.
