Things to note:

  1. The company has a total debt of Rs 2,843 crore, mostly from Indian Railway Finance Corporation — the financing arm of Indian Railways. However, the risk related to this loan is nil as the Railway Ministry takes full responsibility for debt servicing, which only passes through Rail Vikas Nigam’s books.
  2. It follows an asset light model to run various types of projects.
  3. It has a qualified and experienced workforce and management team.

Updates on IPO:

The initial public offer of RVNL was subscribed 0.18 times as of second day on monday, with the company receiving bids for 44.87 mln shares against 253.46 mln shares on offer, exchange data showed.

The company did not receive a single bid for the 126.40 mln shares reserved for qualified institutional buyers. Non-institutional investor portion was subscribed 0.03 times while retail investor portion was subscribed 0.49 times.

Conclusion:

We feel the current valuations are relatively attractive when compared to its closest proxy peer, IRCON. RVNL has a better growth profile with a strong balance sheet when compared to IRCON and we expect this gap to bridge between the two. RVNL has strong financial growth and a resilient order book but it derives a significant chunk of its revenue from the Ministry of Railways. Any slowdown in awarding of projects could adversely affect the growth prospects of the company. There can be no assurance that in future adequate financing will be granted which may result in an adverse effect on execution. Any delay in the company’s ability to complete the projects on time, could lead to termination of contracts which would affect their operations significantly. Hence, we subscribe NEUTRAL rating to the stock. Minor listing gains possible on listing but from a long term investors can avoid.
