  • Date 15th June; IPO Open 16-20th June at Rs. 600-603
  • Valuations: P/E 34.3 times TTM, P/B 15.4 times
  • Mid Cap: Rs. 8,300 crore Mkt cap
  • Industry – Pharma sector
  • Advice: Investors can BUY with a 2 year perspective

· Overview: Eris is an Ahmedabad based firm that develops, manufactures and sells branded pharma products from the chronic and acute categories in the Indian pharma market. Revenues for FY17 were Rs. 725 cr. and profit Rs. 242 cr. ERIS’s revenues, EBITDA and PAT grew at 16.6%, 34.7% and 42.8% CAGR in 5 years. Within the growing industry, Eris has a market share of 0.7% achieved in just 10 years of existence. There is certainly ample scope for Eris to grow both market share and absolute revenues. Eris is already growing fast and stands out for the domestic focus, strong marketing & sales, good business relationships with doctors (B2D) and efficient mfg. & procurement giving high margins. At a P/E of 34.25 TTM the valuations in the IPO are high but not aggressive, and justified by Eris’ growth rates.
· Key risks: 1) Pending complaints with the Medical Council of India 2) Adherence to voluntary code of UCPMP 3) We are unsure that Eris will be able to maintain its high growth rates, high procurement of products and subsequently margins

  • Opinion: This IPO offering is rated BUY, and investors can invest with a 2 year perspective.

IPO highlights
· The IPO opens: 16-20th June 2017 with the Price band: Rs. 600-603 per share.
· Shares offered to public number 2.87 cr. The FV of each is Rs. 1 and market Lot is 24.
· The IPO in total will collect Rs 1,741 cr. while selling 21% of equity. The offer is a complete OFS and the selling shareholders will receive the entire sum. ChrysCapital’s investment arm Botticelli would be exiting by selling its current 16.3% stake. Botticelli’s average cost of acquisition in Eris was Rs 87.27/share giving them 6.9x on their investment in 6 years. The other selling shareholders are individuals who hold around 4-9% stake individually in the company. The promoter & promoter group owns 59.18% in ERIS which will fall to 55.9% post-IPO.
· The IPO share quotas for QIB, NIB and retail are in ratio of 75:15:10.
· The unofficial/ grey market premium for this IPO is Rs. 86/share. This is a positive.
