Management is a very big concern.

Check the list of violations & non-compliance of one of the directors Mr. Milan Dalal (related to other promoter Bhupen Dalal) and his entities.

  • Companies not traceable at the last known address(BSE)
  • Collected money from public in money circulation schemes by making tall promises of high returns (RBI)
  • Indulged in creation of artificial market and price manipulation through structured, synchronized transactions and financing
  • deals in scrip of Jagsonpal Pharmaceuticals Limited (SEBI) (Same charge repeated for multiple promoter entities on multiple scrips)
  • Executed matched/structured trades (same charge repeated for multiple entitites on multiple scrips)
  • Multiple companies were debarred / restrained / suspended by SEBI on accessing capital markets
  • Used exchange mechanism in order to meet financial obligations.
  • Default in payment of loans (Multiple Banks)

These are listed on their offer document. http://www.foodsandinns.com/pdf/draft_letter_of_offer.pdf

44+ issues were listed in 2012 and not sure on the count now or about the activities of other promoters. Curious and the brave can dig more for more colours on their recent activities. Sample was enough to turn me off.

Hi Amit,

I am tracking this share. Industry potential is huge. Main customers are pepsi and also others. But promoters were involved in some scam in past before 2000. But looks like they have come back strongly, but have to check this more before investment. Any recent info on promoter quality is welcomed. Few links …

Thanks

Disclosure: Not invested.

Thanks Bramha and Anandbhai

Stock is trading at low p/e as compared to peers, management concern could be the reason.

Disc : hold small quantity

Thanks

Amit,

I am a fresher here, but even to my eyes there is not enough information. You have presented a story with no numbers or critical analysis, PE is not the sole criteria.

Mr Damani bought on April 12, 2019 @ 184 per share approx.
The share has been ex bonus from April 30, 2019.
Which means, post receiving bonus shares (2 shares for each 1 held i.e. 2:1), the acquisition price of Mr Damani comes down to 61 (almost 1/3rd, right?).
The share is available right now (as on 30th Aug) at ~ 45. That means it is available 25% cheaper (with compared to Mr Damani’s acquisition price).
Forum members following this company pls comment your views regarding the long term prospects of the company.

Disc : Not invested yet.
