Conclusion

SMWL, though have paid up capital almost equal to that of SEL, by its operations are less than 5%. Merger is EPS dilutive though there is marginal increase in book value. So unless there are synergy benefits, this merger benefits mainly shareholders of SMWL by providing liquidity and the increasing possibility of dividend and appreciation of present business of SEL.
