SSPDL is a very interesting real estate company where the current market cap of the company is very small compared to the kind of projects this company is doing. SSPDL is basically a play on the realty market in South India. This company is executing projects in Chennai, Bangalore, Kerala, Hyderabad and Vizag. The company has recently completed one project called Alpha City in Chennai, which is an IT park and also part rented that project.

Incidentally, Alpha City project was nominated for the category of Best Commercial Property by CNBC-Awaaz Crisil Real Estate Award in 2008. Besides this, company is also doing some other projects called Chennai Central, which is a shopping mall covering an area of 1.27 lakh square feet in Chennai, construction of which is expected to commence shortly. Then it is doing Matrix Tower in Chennai, which is again an IT park of 2 lakh square feet. It is doing a project called Promenade on 10 acres in Chennai covering an area of 11 lakh square feet, which besides mall and office complex will also house Novotel and Ibis brand of hotels.

This company is doing Northwoods in Hyderabad on 42 acre land, which comprises of 200 villas. The company is doing Retreat, which is a 120 acre gated community in Hyderabad. Then Retreat project in Bangalore covers about 48 acres and is located at Devanahalli, which is close to a new airport and it is also doing Retreat in Kerala on an area of close to about 320 acres. Besides these real estate projects, the company has also taken building contracts.

The company has got close to Rs 100 crore of construction contracts for buildings. Major ones being TCG IT park valued at about 36 crore, NSIC office complex about Rs 25 crore and one more group housing project worth about Rs 18 crore.

Another interesting thing is that Indiareit Fund Advisors, which is a company promoted by Ajay Piramal group, has also invested in some of the projects of this company. So I believe that at the current market cap of Rs 40 crore and the current price of Rs 35 per share, I think this does not reflect the full potential of the company.

The expected sales revenues from these various projects can be many times more than the current market cap of the company. Of course, there could be concerns over the short-term, which we saw with the most real estate companies. So at the current price of about Rs 35 per share, I don’t see too much of downside from these levels and if all goes well with the company, the stock has the potential to be a multiplier in the years to come.
