One of my relatives had a Rs 2.5 Mn FD with them it took almost three years after maturity to get it back in around 15 installments (Appa Kewa Wage). I also went once with my Uncle to their Bagatalle Rd Office (Now closed). I requested their financials and had a glance at it.

1. They have invested some real estate project in Homagama (as I remember) and got stuck with it.
2. It created a asset liability mismatch so they can not meet the obligations of maturing deposits
3. Further to that they have made avoidance tactics when we call or call over. But this was different when its about a new investment.

Whatever it is, its board and the management responsibility be prudent in their investments. They just followed the real estate bubble and got almost busted. In my opinion now they have a chance to raise the money form public behind the central bank regulations.

Its upto the investors (retail like us) to be prudent because its our blood and sweat.

For me it is CRAP and they are to be SCRAPPED.

Based on CIFL's Annual report for the year 2009/10 (http://www.cifl.lk/downloads/ann_rep.html - page 2) EPS was Rs. 0.79 and NAPS was Rs.13.07 these figures seem better than the previous year which was Rs 0.13 and Rs 14.92 respectively (obtained from the same report). Performance figures seems promising together with their offer price of 10/- per share. Awaiting the issue of their prospectus.

I think it would be a good buy in terms of investment from the way the other finance companies have gained in share value upon their IPOs and listings.

Dear Friends

When you have first hand experience it supersedes perception, hunch, EPS, NAV and simply everything. I respect all three views above and any other future views on this. But when you know the smell of S*** you don't need to see it.

All my comments are based on their financials of 2008/09 & 2009/10 and not the latest. I may be wrong if the company had made a complete restructuring to their balance sheet.


 "CIFL" IPO Untitl11

1. There main source of funding is public deposits.(Note 17 - Let us see where they have put all these money)

2. Liquid assets has come down from 272Mn to 90Mn (Note 3,4,5)

3. Loan book (Leasing, HP & Loans) shrunk to 309 Mn from 490 Mn. (Note 7 & 8 - There are a finance company. There core business is lending but the loan book is mere 14% of there total shareholders funds and liabilities)
How do you justify the above actions. It is good for a real estate company not for a finance company. Directors should act prudently since they are playing with public money.

4. Investment in JV Company is 776 Mn (Note 14), which can go up to 800Mn. At the same time the interest receivable from JV is 418 Mn (Note 9). Just look at the ROI but not realized yet.

5. With all difficulties they have invested 190Mn (Note 13) Rajagiriya Project and the interest receivable from this included in Note 6 amounting to 22Mn.

I doubt that the balance sheet of the company belongs to finance company but investment or real estate company.

Finally this is CSE which has the real potential for CRAP, GARBAGE and S***. This will be oversubscribe for sure and I will not be surprised if this shoot up to Rs 107.60. As tubal says they are in search for dumb money. They need you....

If the BS of the company has a restructuring during the recent financial year I will hide my tail between the legs and subscribe.

I somewhat agree with the comments of the real estate investment, But can't clearly see what are the assets belongs to this, realizability depends quality of the asset and the returns can be more than HP and leasing. And unlike the lease assets the capital gains are always there in trading real estate stock. But you are very right if the stock quality is bad, on another note the maturity mismatch can be higher if the real-estate asset is not moving in the market, how ever I would love to see the assets of this project so we can ascertain the realizability of their real estate portfolio.

@ Jason

Please read my second comment on the same thread and come up with the counter arguments for the assets on the balance sheet. It shows the BS of the company for 2008/09 and 2009/10. The major argument here based on the ASSET - LIABILITY mismatch which is the responsibility of the directors ultimately deprived poor depositors.

I have no personal issues with the company.In the last sentence of my statement I have a provision to hide my tail between my legs. So you have the opportunity to initiate it. Let's talk numbers.

Hey Guys,

Is there a real asst liability mismatch? I really dont see it in the Balance sheet, In your 2nd comment you state that that Liquidity has comedown, but also you can notice for the entire year the companies total liability has increased only from 60 Million Rupees, this shows their public liability has not gone up for the year,

How ever can you explain how there is an asset Liability Mismatch??

This thread and all comments look very strange to me. Few members who have joined the forum either today or yesterday are vigorously trying to defend a company which is going for an IPO shortly. Similar situation was there with Expo Lanka as well. We don’t see those who promoted Expo Lanka IPO anymore in this forum.

My advice to all readers, don’t repeat the mistakes you have done in the past, analyze the prospectus and all other available information about the company before you apply. Mainly do a valuation and see if the price of the IPO is attractive compared to other shares in the same sector, trading in the secondary market. It is your money, choose the right option carefully.

To Stock Watch,

Yes I agree with you 100%, But on a another view do you expect people to stay silent, when a person comments, to scrap a registerd finance companny with baseless aligations just before it's IPO, its good to analyse and educate and comment on a IPO but sad to see people vigorously trying to tarnish a companies image for their personal openion on a respected blog like this.

CIFL prospectus is available on the CSE website as of today (refer - www.cse.lk) - FYI

The EPS and NAPS for 9 months ending 31st Dec 2010 has been included in the prospectus and is Rs 0.99 and Rs 14.86 respectively. Would appreciate some expert comments on CIFL's IPO.

CIFL Audited financial statement shows EPS of 0.99 for the year ended 31st December 2010. As at 31st December 2010, there were only 19,739,424 shares outstanding as at that date. Subsequently CIFL Has done a Split (11 for 5 ) on 9th May 2011 & the new share capital represents 43,426,733. Then the EPS figure get diluted up to Rs 0.45.

Further, prospectus pages No 11 states that “If IPO fully subscribed, the offered Shares will amount to 47.95 % of the Issued Ordinary Shares of the Company subsequent to the Offering.”

Then, After IPO, No of shares issued will be 83,420,229. After IPO EPS (based on current audited accounts) will be only Rs 0.23. Which is at 43 X (times) P/E to its IPO price.

Over to you my friends…

Thanks for alarming us.

Now, I want to know about the Shareholders list published in the prospectus.

There are 220 pre -IPO shareholders in Annexure F.

The number of shares each of them hold are very unusual.
396, 1558, 1041, 176, 5852 , 14555, ..... ???

Why is this. ?
I heard some badly managed finance companies converted their debt to shares and forcefully gave them to the depositors.

If any of our members know any of these shareholders please find out and let us know. The names and addresses are given in pages 138 to 141

THanks for uncovering the hidden numbers. We need to be careful before buying with all these new companies getting listed one after the other.
