Avonmore Capital

Avonmore Capital & Management Services Limited.

The company is primarily engaged in investing in businesses. The investments eventually grow as the business they have invested in grows. The company holds around 58% stake in Almondz Glonal Securities which is listed on stock exchange. So it looks more like an investment/holding company.

Besides the listed entity – they have investments in

Premier Alcobev Pvt Limited : Unit is located in HP. They are manufacturing liquor for companies like Diagio, Pernord Ricard and others. Key franchise brands include DSP Black Label, Romanov Vodka, DSP Green Label, McDowells No.1 Rum, Signature Rare Whiskey, Mcdowels No.1. Whiskey. Besides these they have their own brands as well like Premier Club, Full house, Old sniper, Knight Storm, etc. Someone in HP/North can throw some light on popularity of these brands.

They have grain based distillery with capacity of 85 KLPD ENA and 30 KLPD Ethanol. They plan to increase this to 200 KLPD shortly (May be already done). And they are planning to set up a green field project with similar capacity in Orissa. They generate captive power of 1.5 MW.

Do not have results for the current year, but Avonmore website has mentioned 400 Cr, but that looks too steep to believe going by the available data.

Don’t see Avonmore name in the data. May be North Square and/or Classy investment belong to them, need to check.

Almondz Global Infra Consultant Limited (AGICL) : This is another subsidiary and going by their website their client base is impressive. It looks like an asset light consulting company. Will get more information on this later.

Skiffle Healthcare Services : Company is running ten Super-Specialised Centres under the brand “Itek Vision Centre” and provides Cataract, Cornea, Retinal, Glaucoma, Neuro-ophthalmology and other eye related services. Not much information available on this.

The company is trading at Rs 76 against book Value of Rs. 117. And their own business do not look all that rosy, but management seems to be good and investments seem to be monitored closely.

They had done buyback of shares in 2022 @ Rs. 95 which gives some confidence looking at current market price.

This is not an investment advise, and the readings may be biased as I have recently added this to my portfolio based on above info.


Promoters have continued to buy through creeping acquisition over many years and are now close to 70%

Yes. Their last buy was at Rs 76. Although very small quantity.
Stock currently at same levels.

Will be interesting to see the next move after promoters get to 75%. They should look to do another buyback.

Almondz Global

Premier Alcobev remains a JV of Almondz Global but Avonmore has reduced it’s holding to less than 49%. No announcement was made, I think.
