IPO Update : Suryachakra Power corp. Ltd.

Suryachakra : Lacking the Power Punch !

Suryachakra Power corporation limited has eneterd the capital markets with an offer of 3.4 crore shares at a price band of Rs. 17-20 per share. Investment Guru is of the view that Suryachakra is a small player in its segment and hence doesn't command economies of scale which is an differentiating factor in the power industry. The IPO has also been priced very aggresively compared to company fundamentals. The outlook for power sector has been optimistic given the governments focus on infrastructural growth of India, however, it has to be seen if small plyaers like Suryachakra can really take advantage of this. The foray into power trading and Bio-diesel sector are a positive but the company's ability to succeed in these ventures is yet to be tested and proved. The IPO is rated as average.
