SEL Manufacturing Co Ltd: The Loot by the Promoters??!!
In my earlier post I had mentioned about the quoted and unquoted investments of SEL Manufacturing Co Ltd. Let us now look at the assets of the company and then question why the company goes for GDR route to raise funds when there are enough funds to go for expansion: 
  • Tangible Assets--Rs.13,522,920,650
  • Intangible Assets--Rs.33,781,405
  • Capital Work in Progress--Rs.5,508,355,411
  • Non Current Investments--Rs.13 1,857,187,584
  • Other Non‐Current Assets--Rs.306,683,028
  • Inventories--Rs.16 6,165,243,671
  • Trade Receivables--Rs.17 6,319,185,303
  • Cash & Cash Equivalents--Rs.18 732,057,822
  • Short Term Loans & Advances--Rs.19 792,636,816
  • Other Current Assets--Rs.20 1,132,460,960
  • Market Value of Quoted Investments---Rs.2,338,035
  • Aggregate Value of Quoted Investments--Rs.3,067,555
  • Aggregate Value of Un-Quoted Investments--Rs.1,854,120,029. 
Now the point is that the company never bothers to respond to the mails nor otherwise. In such circumstances how to access the management, who are virtually trying to loot the company at the cost of  hapless shareholders. I do not know why the regulators are looking at the other direction, while this plunder is going on. SEBI should pull up the auditor and question them about the FY12 balance sheet of the company, which I feel is purely fudged, to hide the real profits of the company; which is being looted by the Promoters. Or else the share should not have been trading at around Rs.5-6, it would have been around Rs.45-60.
What I sadly feel is that such things cannot take place if some persons from the regulator side are not in  hand and glove with the company!! There must have been some secret tie up between some members of the regulatory  body and the Management of SEL Manufacturing Co Ltd---who knows? The Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) also failed to protect the shareholders of Pyramid Saimira Theatres Ltd too..........!! 
What for do we have a regulator if it does not serve any purpose, except their regular time pass work of banning some entities  for share "Manipulative" trading or putting some companies in the T-group. What has SEBI till now done to the promoters of companies---most of them escaped looting the shareholders.
