CKP Leisure limited IPO is coming from a business domain that does not really see much of public funding outings. CKP Leisure Limited (or previously known as Percept Media Work Private Limited) is a hospitality-based business and was incorporated recently on 23rd of July 2013 and has seen multiple changes in its brand name in these 5 years or so since its establishment.
Apart from the names mentioned above, it was also branded as Dionysus Club Private Limited for a couple of months in 2016.
Anyway, coming back to the business model CKP Leisure limited runs multiple hospitality and leisure properties such as night-clubs, discotheques, fine dining restaurants, banquet halls etc with a presence primarily in Mumbai.
The business currently runs a nightclub named ‘Club Sirkus’ at Hotel Sahara close to the Mumbai Domestic Airport. This 5,000 Square feet property has been positioned for a client base that earns pretty well and boasts reasonable disposable income. The club opens for few days a week and the entry starts at 10 pm late evening until the wee hours of the morning next day. In case you are looking to visit the club, there is a strict dress code that needs to be followed.
As far as the business model of CKP Leisure is concerned, it earns from various revenue streams including:
Sale of food and beverage
Sale of Liquor
Apart from owning Club Sirkus, CKP Leisure has made investments in businesses in the same domain. For instance, it made an investment in Athena Restaurant and Bar in 2015 and with that investment, it took over the business operations of a nightclub ‘Saizen’ and ‘Club Athena’. The names of these clubs were changed to “जा: pani” and ‘Club Alibii’ respectively.
CKP Leisure Limited is now looking to raise funds through an SME IPO worth ₹11.544 Crore with specific objectives in place (more on that later in the review). In the rest of the review, we will talk about some specific details related to this CKP Leisure Limited IPO before providing you with an objective recommendation.
The IPO is being managed by Aryaman Financial Services limited.

CKP Leisure Limited Financial Performance
Let’s look at the way business has grown in the recent past:
For the Financial Year ended (in ₹ Lakhs)
FY 2018 - 8 Months
Profit After Tax (PAT)
Growth in Profit
It can be clearly observed that the business, although started in 2013, has seen a sizable revenue and corresponding profit in the last 3 years or so.
Yes, numbers are consistent, but the overall duration where a business can prove itself on a consistent basis is too short to conclude objectively.
CKP Leisure Limited IPO Objective
The primary reason for this SME IPO issue is that the business is looking to set up and operate a banquet hall based out of Nashik, Maharashtra. This 14.5k square feet mall-based property was recently leased to CKP Leisure Limited and now, the business looks to run operations and cater a guest capacity of 500 at any given point in time.
Here are the detailed objectives of this IPO from CKP Leisure Limited (remember the fresh issue is worth ₹3.74 Crore):
Setting up the Nashik based banquet hall – ₹2.98 Crore
General Corporate Purposes – ₹0.53 Crore
Expenses related to this offer issuance – ₹0.24 Crore
Thus, it is pretty clear the funding is required for business expansion in other geographies apart from Mumbai.
Now, the thing with restaurants or hospitality based businesses is that there is, invariably, a luck factor involved. The restaurant, cafe shop, fast food store whatever you open will always have a buzz factor involved.
If you get it, your business kills!
If you don’t, your business is killed!

CKP Leisure Limited IPO – Our Recommendation
As mentioned in the financial performance section above, the business CKP Leisure Limited is still new and it will take some time before it can be called as a mature investing entity.
Furthermore, the objective of the IPO is to set up an entirely new banquet hall and that too in a city where the brand has not much of a visibility. Thus, not only there will be money needed for setting up operations, a lot of finance will be required to throw out the word on a consistent basis (in form of marketing and advertising).
With a PAT of around 1 Crore+ coming from its existing Mumbai based business, CKP Leisure does not have much of resources at disposal apart from the funding it gets through this SME IPO.
In other words, yes – it is a glamorized and premium business but probably its way to early for the business to raise a public funding. For now, our recommendation is to let this one go and keep your eye on other upcoming IPO opportunities.
