Emami Infrastructure Ltd at Rs 91…..Listed on July 28,2010 with suspicious and crazy gyrations of near Rs 600 on the upside and below Rs 90 on the downside…What’s the Story!?

I’ve been asked to Value newly listed Emami Infrastructure Ltd (EIL) after it’s Price Acrobatics displayed on the first day of Listing,on Wednesday last week!  

I needed a ‘Saridon’ at the end of the Interesting and quite revealing Valuation exercise !…there should be a law against the number of companies that a Real Estate Player opens in the Group !…you will understand once you go through this blog

Emami Infrastructure Ltd listed on Wednesday,July 28,2010 and Price swings were crazy…opening at Rs 250 on NSE and then touching  heights of Rs 598.80 and lows of Rs 86 and closing at Rs 104.8…closed lower at Rs 101 on BSE…and today it’s Rs 91

On the first day of Listing,there are no Circuit Breakers…so price mischief through volatile swings is easily facilitated…seems Emami Infrastructure too is a prey to this Game…SEBI is planning to investigate Listing Day swings…also have a look at the Bulk deals on that day on BSE (source bse website)

Except for one,all have squared off at marginal profits…the only genuine sale is by an FII, T Rowe…they were in the Top Ten Shareholders list at the time of the Scheme of Arrangement…..clearly these are synchronised bulk trades to create volumes on the bourse…they do not serve the purpose of efficient price discovery,or genuine,credible and authentic trading……it’s a rampant misuse of the Bulk Trade Window….but why does this misuse continue !?……no prizes for guessing !….a lot of people,part of a nexus, should be brought to book for destroying the sanctity of our markets

Let’s turn to the Valuation of Emami Infrastructure Ltd….but before I do that,let’s revist how Emami took over Zandu in 2008  

An Ambitious Emami Group wins a Hostile Bid for Zandu

Remember how in 2008 for Rs 700 crs the Agarwals of Emami Group took over Zandu Pharmaceuticals from the Parikhs (no relations of mine!) in a hostile takeover battle…with more than a little help from the Anand Rathi Group…a lot of Coincidences here that surround the Birla Group….Emami Promoters are ex Birla Group Managers from the 1970s…Anand Rathi too headed the Finance Function in a leading Birla Company….Birla Financial Companies were aggressively buying Zandu in 2007/8 before the takeover bid….A Zandu share of FV Rs 100  was available below Rs 1000….the hostile takeover took it to Rs 20000 !…Friday,Zandu share was quoted at Rs 3100…..but effectively yet near Rs 16000 as a Zandu Shareholder was given 14 free shares of flagship, Emami Ltd of FV Rs 2 for every one share of FV Rs 100 held in Zandu under the Scheme of Arrangement of 2009..last week Emami split the FV from Rs 2 to Rs 1 and is quoted now at Rs 457 for a FV Rs 1 Share  read more
