Competition apart, the company’s ability to bring professionalism in terms of disclosure and transparency could be a vital indicator of the company’s performance.
At the offer price of Rs 265-310, the price-earnings multiple is 18-20 times the company’s consolidated earnings for 2006-07 on the expanded equity base. The offer is at a discount to peers of a similar size.
Further, based on the company’s planned projects and current projects under development, the PE (at the offer price) stands at 10-12 times its likely consolidated earnings two years from now.
Land BankOmaxe has declared land reserves of 3,255 acres, representing 150 million sq ft of developable area, mainly in North India, but spread across nine states
Also, one must take into account the rapid spurt in the PAT of the company. In the last one year, it has grown by 75% and considering last four years it has grown at a CAGR of more than 100%.
On the valuation front, considering the post-issue equity capital on a fully diluted basis including the green-shoe option, the company quotes a P/E of 19.80(x) and 23.17(x) at the lower and higher end of the price band respectively.
An immediate comparison with its peers like Ansal Housing, Parsvanath Developers and Sobha Developers, which quote a P/E of around 10(x), 26(x) and 43(x) respectively, the scrip’s price looks fair.
Brokerage house SSKI's fair value estimate of Omaxe's NAV comes to Rs 448 per share, which gives a 44 per cent upside from the upper band of the price range of Rs 265-310 per share.
Edelweiss has also recommended subscribing to Omaxe IPO. On net present value basis, Edelweiss has estimated Omaxe's net asset value at Rs 400-405 per share. The IPO price band of Rs 265-310 is at a discount of 51-31 per cent to its NAV.
At the offer price band of Rs 265-310, Emkay Share and Stock Brokers has worked out Omaxe's PE to 17.8-20.8 times 2006-07 (Apr-Mar) EPS of Rs 14.9 (consolidated) on post issue equity of Rs 172.75 crore. According to the brokerage, the company's net asset value stands at Rs 487 per share, which is 57 per cent above the upper band of the price range of Rs 265- Rs 310.
Furthermore, being relatively recent entrants into the land accumulation game, Omaxe’s acquisition costs are bound to be significantly higher, which in turn will yield lesser margins. Finally, the recent run in with the IT authorities and its other cases, raise the spectre of corporate governance related issues.
Surprisingly, the Omaxe issue is priced at a discount to its net asset value and a reasonable earnings multiple.
In September 2006, real estate consultancy Trammel Crow Meghraj had carried out a valuation of all the 47 projects of Omaxe aggregating about 140 million sq ft (2,837 acres), and had arrived at a net asset value (NAV) of Rs 19,700 crore. Post-issue, the company will have market capitalisation in the range of Rs 4,214- Rs 5859 crore, which amounts to a meagre 22-30 per cent of the estimated NAV.
“This valuation has not been mentioned in the red herring prospectus following SEBI guidelines which bar real estate players from providing valuations,” said Rohtas Goel, chairman.
