Confidence petroleum

Any idea how much they’ve paid for this new capacity? Earlier they acquired Sarju Impex, is that already delivering CNG cylinder revenues?

Promoters are continuously buying the stock from the open market.

In Q4 so far, promoters have increased their shareholding by 0.47%.
In Q3, they had increased their shareholding by 0.99%.
Since March 2019, in 3 years, they have increased their shareholding by 6.81%.

Open market buying by promoters plus aggressive acquisitions are good signs. EKC and CONFIPET’s actions certainly mean that demand is healthy for the near term (1-2 years at least). Remains to be seen if demand can stay ahead of new capacities coming in.

but the last day they pledge a bulk of their shares again after december. It seems they are pledging the double of what they buy in a dip every month. Does it seem like a pump and dump thing?

Sorry but what has a pledge got to do with a pump and dump? Pledge is for taking loans for the company right? I did not get the connection.

Same here. Just calculated quantities they bought and quantities they pledge. It really seems they are pledging more than what they bought. Can any one please explain for what purpose they are doing this pledge?

just that by buying small quantities almost every week creating the impression that there is a lot of promoter buying in the company and later pledging the quantity bough together or more to buy again. I noticed the company because of promoter buying and many other people also will be fooled by this buying thing and investing just on the basis of that.

My observations on Micro & small cap cos is many times lenders will also tell promoters to infuse some capital if they are not confident of debt servicing capacity. So its not always negative. We have to wait till next share holding. If promoters are not selling their stakes its very positive sign. I’d guess pledging is because there isn’t enough collateral acceptable to lenders. Which is fine, it happens often. Banks aren’t interested in taking buildings on leased land as collateral, because buildings themselves may not have enough value. I’m just guessing btw, from experience

We can check for reason for pledge mentioned in the pledging disclosure. I do not think that lender will insist for any pledging as its financial are not that weak.

It seems that Confidence would not have pledged for their on borrowings but for other promoter Company Esteem LPG.

I am a bit surprised why would you do a pref allotment at this price? Unless the promoters want to take advantage of the price and issue themselves warrants by paying a marginal amount upfront.

Confidence Futuristic (listed group company) is probably in operators hand since Pref Allotments were made. These things made me nervous about investment in this company. Promoters lacking clarity.

Disc: Invested in 2020.
