I think it’s important to meet promoters and check prospects of the company on ground…micro cap and mid cap data should be taken with a caution


I have met with Promotors few times and never let go any opportunity to meet them.

Meeting with Promotors provide better understanding of their Business

One of the Best Real Indicators of Real Estate Sales is Tax Collections…
Robust Tax Collections data suggests Demand is very good

Realty market picks up, Maharashtra likely to meet revenue target?utm_source=whatsapp&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=WhatsappShare :

Can you please share details of the projects that the company is undertaking. The area that it is looking to sell and the realisation that the company expects.

Also please share the Debt, profitability status etc.

This will be much more beneficial than giving projected EPS

Also, Real Estate Companies are not valued on EPS, but on Asset values.

Can you please share the Expected Net Asset Value of this company and calculations thereof

That’s true that Real Estate Cos not valued at EPS.
Being Asset Light Business Model SWL don’t buy much Land so valuing it on NAV basis will be very difficult.
Current Debt of the Co is around 25-26 Crs against Shareholders fund of around 75 Crs, so debt equity comes around 0.30-0.35
SWL work on JV Models and Development Management Model so better to value it on expected Cash flow generation.
SWL have 8-9 Project’s running out of these 5-6 are self funded which show financial strength of the Co.

Co maintaining around 30% EBITDA and around 20% PAT Margins.

Results has been declared, Top line in line but missed bottom line.

Co announced Bonus on 1:1 and migrating to main board

Contacted Management and Management given clarification.

Around 1.75-2.00 Crs Expenses are one off including IPO exp.
Around 1.25-1.50 Crs Expenses related to Projects that will take off

Co expected to acquire at least 4-5 projects mostly in Development Management Model.

For Few Projects discussions are on advanced stage. Co targeting one project acquisition & one Project Completion in every qtr.

Disc : Holding


“Top 10 listed entities, including Ashiana Housing, Brigade Enterprises, DLF, Godrej Properties, Mahindra Lifespace Developers, Oberoi Realty, Prestige Estates Projects, Puravankara, Peninsula Land and Sobha sold nearly 32.19 million sqft, registering a robust 44 per cent growth over the previous year, rating agency Icra said.”

“Home-buyers are increasingly leaning towards developers with an established track record of on-time and quality project completion. Pricing also remains a key driver of purchase decisions. Thus, focused execution, resulting in timely deliveries, and developer emphasis on increasing affordability of residential projects, has supported sales levels for the larger listed players,”

Organised & Well Established Players will have edge being Strong Executioners, Brand and Strong Balance Sheet

After a long time and waiting now State Govt announced the relaxation in some norms.

Industry sources says Mumbai have more than 30000 Buildings for redevelopment but city don’t have required competent developers.

Competent players have ample opportunities now and for future

(1) The additional development cess for infrastructure purposes, which was payable over the additional FSI component has been withdrawn.
(2) The CM-led urban development department has lowered the premium payable on the FSI, which is granted to all projects in Mumbai on payment of a premium, from 50 per cent to 40 per cent.
(3) Premiums payable for compensatory fungible FSI in residential and commercial projects have been brought down to 35 per cent and 40 per cent of the ready reckoner (RR) values respectively.
(4) To push the development of information technology parks and similar specialised commercial projects, premiums for the incentive FSI has also been lowered to 40 per cent.
(5) For fast tracking redevelopment of dilapidated buildings in Mhada-owned colonies, the government has meanwhile proposed a 50 per cent reduction in the premiums payable on the incentive FSI component in such redevelopment projects in the economically weaker and low income segments and a 25 per cent reduction in the middle and high income segments.
(6) To promote development of multi-storied public parking lots on private land, the premiums payable on the incentive FSI component of such projects has also been lowered from 60 per cent to 50 per cent.
The government has said that the concessions offered will be valid for a period of two years.
