One may try to play the issue for IPO listing gains, which might also prove risky. At Rs 40, it can be thought of for investment but definitely not above the price tag of Rs. 40.

Stock brokerage house view:
Prabhudas Lilladher - IPL is looking to add five projects totaling 6615MW of capacity over the next 4-5 years time frame. The first three projects are relatively at advanced stage of implementation with coal linkages/captive mines in place & BTG equipment supply orders to Chinese vendors already awarded for the first 2 projects. Based on our assumptions (as per RHP & management analyst meet interaction), the NAV of current projects works out to Rs 37, with ~60% value accruing due to pit-head captive mine at power projects of Chhattisgarh.

At the higher end of the band, IPL is expected to be valued at 2.1xFY12E to post-issue book value. We value IPL’s 5295MW on DCFE basis at Rs 37 and have given a 25% premium to capture the value of future projects, to arrive at Rs46 per share value. We would recommend Subscribe for listing gains.
