ICRA Nepal has assigned an [ICRANP] IPO Grade 5 to the proposed initial public offering (IPO) of Mailung Khola Jal Vidhyut Company Limited (MKJVCL), indicating poor fundamentals. ICRA Nepal assigns IPO grading on a scale of IPO Grade 1 through IPO Grade 5, with Grade 1 indicating strong fundamentals and Grade 5 indicating poor fundamentals.
The Grade-5 for the company mainly factors in the weak earnings profile of the company due to low plant load factor(PLF) which is basically a degree of power plant’s capacity utilization for a period of time. The lower the PLF lower capacity utilization resulting in lower operational efficiency. This has resulted in a significant loss of revenue for the company.
The other factor this grading considered is the penalty for the project due to delay in the commercial date of operation (COD). This penalty is being paid out from monthly revenues which have impacted the cash flows for the company.

How much to apply for?
When we observe the current scenario, investors have shown a high level of confidence, which is shown by the huge demand for the last few months. Almost all of the stocks have been trading significantly higher than they were before lockdown. Nonetheless, the rating received for this IPO issue isn’t anything like what we saw in recent issues. It will be interesting to observe whether investors will study the company prospectus and take informed decisions, or whether the bull market will absorb anything that comes. After all, Mr. Market is always right.
When we look at the current trend of IPO in the market, we see that more than 21 lakhs of investors have been applying in the recent issue’s which is a huge number when we compare it with past applicants. This shows that, even if a quarter of this number applied for the issue of Mailung Khola Jalavidhyut Company Limited (MKJVCL), the issue will be oversubscribed. Since the “10 kitta rule” still holds true for IPO; 68,474 applicants will be lucky enough to get the 10 unit shares of Mailung Khola. So, it is advisable to apply only 10 units.
