Take a look at the valuations at that time, if they can get the receivables issue solved then anything is possible. Some excerpts:
Here’s a company write-up & share suggestion for the pub – a company that retains a 75% stake in its recently floated Indian subsidiary which is worth a staggering 2.4 times the value that the holding company commands on AIM. Yes, the stake is worth approximately 280p per share to DQE which currently trades at 119p in London, but as yet undiscovered by the London market.
Price 119p (115p-123p) Shares in issue 35.966m Market cap £42.80m
The listing was duly approved and on 10th March 2010 DQE reported that the IPO had been 86.33 times oversubscribed with issue priced at the top band of 80 rupees. Gross proceeds at the issue price amounted to £18.87million. Given the market demand it was no surprise to see DQEI rise 75% in short order to price of 140 rupees. At the current price of 120.45 rupees DQE’s 75% stake (59.4million shares) is worth approximately £101.7million at INR / GB of 0.0142
A falling currency makes imports more expensive and boosts the value of exports. While Bollywood enjoys moderate overseas sales, it is India’s export-driven service sectors that could really benefit, as the cheaper currency will help them undercut competitors. Companies in this group include Prasad (post ), Reliance MediaWorks (post-production and film restoration), Prime Focus (3D conversion and effects) and Red Chillies Entertainment (vfx).
India’s global-minded animation companies Toonz Entertainment and DQ Entertainment may also benefit from a weaker rupee, as long as they don’t have large amounts of foreign debt to service.
