The company has fixed the price band at Rs. 700-750 per share. Based on FY12 annual EPS of Rs. 40.55, CARE will be trading at P/E range of 17.27 x to 18.5 x.

Company has cash equivalents of Rs. 260 Cr. CARE is expected to post FY13 profit of around Rs. 100 Cr which can lead to EPS of close to Rs. 35. 

Retail Investors can subscribe up to maximum of Rs. 2,00,000 per application. CARE has strong financial position and is high cash-generating business and which is available at very reasonable valuations.

The object of the offer is to carry out sale of 71,99,700 Equity share by selling shareholders & to achieve the benefits of listing the Equity Shares on the Stock Exchanges. The Promoters will dilute 25.22 % of their holding in the company through the stake sale. The company CARE will not receive any proceeds from the offer and all proceeds will go to selling shareholders.

Out of the Offer of a total of 71,99,700 equity shares -  24,54,400 equity shares are being offered by IDBI Bank; 21,71,200 equity shares are being offered by Canara Bank. 9,14,500 equity shares are being offered by SBI; 8,55,500 equity shares are being offered by IL&FS; 5,84,100 equity shares being offered by Federal Bank. 58,605 equity shares being offered by IL&FS Trust held on behalf of Milestone Fund. 1,395 equity shares being offered by Milestone Trusteeship held on behalf of Milestone Army Trust; 60,000 equity shares being offered by ING Vysya; 1,00,000 equity shares being offered by TATA Investment. 

The Equity Shares being offered by the Selling Shareholders under the Offer have been held by such Selling Shareholders for a period of more than one year prior to filing of the Draft Red Herring Prospectus with SEBI. CARE has mandated six bankers for managing the IPO, with Karvy Computershare Private Limited as its registrar & DSP Merrill Lynch Ltd as lead banker, other bankers managing the share sale are Edelweiss Capital Limited, ICICI Securities Limited, IDBI Capital Market Services Limited, Kotak Mahindra Capital Company Limited, SBI Capital Markets Limited. 

According to me one should look for subscribing for CARE IPO, having 85 % o its revenue coming from rating business which earns better margins is thus being offered to public at very attractive valuation. CARE will be third listed company after CRISIL & ICRA - the rating agencies India Ratings (formerly Fitch), Brickworks & SME rating are unlisted. CARE can have Market Cap of around Rs. 2,141.46 Cr with cash of Rs. 260 Cr which brings its Enterprise Value of around Rs. 1,881.46 Cr at an Upper band of Rs. 750. 

Thus, with attractive pricing & strong fundamentals with good institutional holdings the Long term investors should look into subscribing the IPO for good opportunity. Short term investor can subscribe for listing gains.
