Disclaimer: I am invested so my views may be biased


Good write up. Do you have any idea about this unrelated diversification into hospital business?

Promoter holding seems to be lesser than 30% …

Promoters are planning their two private hospital to merge with this…after amalgamation promoter holding will be increased​ to 49 percent…and if virinchy crosses market cap of 200 cr, it will be on radar of mutual funds…keep your fingers crossed,

Porinju has also recommend it several times, and his fund has also invested in virinchy which may boost investor confidence

A financial IT product company (Virinchi Ltd) gets into catering business (Tyohar foods), buys another company in IT healthcare sector (Asclepius Consulting), gets into healthcare services (Virinchi Hospitals). Life in the fast lane!


i came across Virinchi , found it interesting and started investing in small amounts but the main thing I did not like was low promoter holding coupled with recent merger announcement of healthcare business with related party. Generally these are the tools promoters use to enhance their holding in the business without incurring any costs.
My concern is , in all likelihood the hospitals to be merged could be valued at a much higher value shortchanging the virinchi shareholders.

Disc : invested

You can read the valuation report for the merged hospital and Virinchi and the swap ratio determined. The bristle cone hospital with 180 operating beds is valued at 54 crores and Virinchi was at 113 Cr. I think both very undervalued. Need an expert opinion from accountants on this.

Special thanks is to the initiator of this thread as been following this company for long.

Disc: invested.

While researching for the company the thing that struck me most was the competency of the team managing the company. Almost all top leaders have IIT IIM background, including poeple merged from acselpius consulting. The company seems to be run by a group of “Intelligent Fanatics”. Even persons roped in for setting up the hospitals seem to be the best in the industry. And they seem to plan for the long term.

The acquisition of Bristlecone seems strategic as it allows for direct acquisition of established doctors, and staff with hospital expirenece and also patients who can be cross referred to the new hospital.

Surely a very good bet considering all these factors.

The company is currently not operating 800 beds but around 550 beds, 350 at Banjara hills hospital and 200 from acquisition. The planned expansion to 800 beds will complete by april 2018.

I can’t imagine how the hospital business is going to go from 800 beds in 2018 to 5000 beds in 2020. Is their any roadmap provided which I missed???

I would stick to simple calculations here. given that the current valuation in PE circles is around 3.2-3.5cr/bed for a good hospital in top 10 indian city, the valuation ball-park for a 500 beds comes close to around 1500cr (taking a modest 3cr/bed valuation). For the current 160cr market cap, there appears to be a good upside to the current valuations. And let’s not forget other operating businesses like software products, which is also doing fairly well.

Disc- Invested for quite some time now


Management from IIT or IIM does not justify an investment in the company in my opinion. It is important to gauge how shareholder friendly the management is. Has anyone met them?

Also why are the tax payments so low and also seems like the company is leveraging its balance sheet for capex. Can be very risky

Ya, if anyone can put some light on management, it will be a great input

They are going to grow up via tie ups…

Regarding amalgamation shared in pdf by Alpin (below nos based out of pdf)
MCAP of Virinchi = 113.38 cr
MCAP of BCH = 54.02 cr
=> MCAP of Virinchi = 2.098 MCAP of BCH
=> n1P1 = 2.098 n2P2
=> n1 = 1.7986 million shares and n2 = 1.5 million shares
=> P1 = P2*(2.0981.5/1.7986)
=> P1 = 1.75
As per pdf, P2 = 5.71*P1
Am I doing something wrong in my calculation ? or the valuation in pdf is wrong ?

It’s 17.9 MN shares for Virinchi.

I too agree that IIT/IIM tag itself does not justifies the investment. It’s the idea that management has given up cushy jobs and have put their career on the line with the success of such a small cap company.

Well at this valuation of around 8 PE of 2017 and around 1.5 P/B value, how do you say it’s risky?
I think leveraging factor already considered in valuation and company ha no plan for high debt in near future for growth when it is compared to earnings…
I may be wrong but it will be better if you can elaborate…

As per my information, Porinju’s equity fund has invested in this company…and as far as I know, they invest only after detailed parameters like management’s integrity and commitment towards shareholders…
Presently that is only clue to satisfy oneself with this point as lack of information…
It will be great if anyone may approach to management and give some inputs…
