Campus Activewears GMP Strengthens. 5 Key Details About the IPO

With three large IPOs and around Rs 240 bn at stake, the Indian primary market is buzzing hot this month.

Among them, Campus Activewear's IPO opened for subscription yesterday.

Here are some details about this IPO...

Issue period: 26 April 2022 to 28 April 2022

IPO size: Rs 14 bn (offer for sale (OFS) of 47.95 m existing shares)

Price band: Rs 278 to Rs 292 per equity share

Bid lot: 51 shares and in multiples thereof

Application limit: Minimum one lot and maximum thirteen lots

Face value: Rs 5 per equity share

Objects of the issue: Since it is entirely an OFS, the company will not receive any money rather it will go to the selling promoters and shareholders.

Promoters, Hari Krishna Agarwal and Nikhil Aggarwal, will sell 12.5 m equity shares in the OFS, whereas TPG Growth III SF will offload up to 29.1 m shares, and QRG Enterprises up to 6.05 m shares.

Campus' maiden offer constitutes 15.8% of the post-issue equity. Promoters will continue to hold a 74.1% stake after the offer.

The company has reserved 0.2 m equity shares out of the total offer, for its employees. A Rs 27 discount per share on the final issue price will be given to participating employees.

Allotment of IPO shares is likely to be finalised on 4 May 2022, while the initiation of refund will kick off from 5 May 2022.

The stock will tentatively get listed on exchanges (Bombay Stock Exchange and National Stock Exchange) by 9 May 2022.

The company witnessed its online sales jump to around Rs 4 bn, in nine months ended December, primarily driven by small-town shoppers.

#4 Arguments in favour of the business

  • Operational superiority

    The manufacturing facilities have the ability to scale up annual capacity to assemble 35.5 m pairs a year.

    The integrated manufacturing capability is difficult to replicate. The company is also backed by a robust supply chain having an omnichannel sales and distribution network with a pan-India presence.
  • Strong growth prospects

    The Indian sports and athleisure segment is expected to benefit from increasing health awareness, rising levels of disposable income in India, favourable trends in Indian demographics such as an increasing population of young adults, and the growing demand for women's footwear.

    The company has a strong presence, accumulating nearly 70% of sales, in tier 2 and 3 cities.

    Campus has shifted its focus towards the premium category and is diversifying through targeted product development.

    The company further plans to extend and deepen its omnichannel experience and focus on investments to further integrate its supply chain.

    Continued focus on digitisation to sharpen product focus and drive retail sales will help the company further propel its operational and financial performance.
  • Experienced Management Team

    Hari Krishan Agarwal is the chairman and managing director of the company with over 3 decades of experience in the footwear industry in India.

    Nikhil Aggarwal is a whole-time director of the company with 14 years of experience in the footwear manufacturing and trading sector.

#5 Risk factors

  • The sports and athleisure footwear industry is highly competitive, with a strong presence of international players like Puma, Adidas, Reebok, etc.
  • The company is highly reliant on trade distribution and direct-to-consumer channels for the majority of sales.
  • The Covid-19 pandemic has had and is expected to continue having an adverse effect on the business.
  • Environmental regulations monitored by governmental authorities like pollution control boards can impose costs and limitations on operations.
  • Failure to effectively promote or develop the brand could materially and adversely affect business performance.
  • Pricing pressure from customers may affect gross margin, profitability, and ability to increase prices.

Grey market premium (GMP) rises

The shares were trading in the grey market at a premium of Rs 72 yesterday, which means the grey market is expecting this IPO to list at around Rs 364.

Today, Campus Activewear share price is trading at a premium of Rs 100 in grey market. This indicates there's a lot of demand for shares.

Many analysts have given a subscribe rating to the IPO given the reasonable pricing, attractive valuation, and competitive advantage in a fast-growing footwear segment.
