About the industry

The domestic gems and jewelry market was roughly ~Rs 4,700 billion in fiscal 2023 with gold jewelry dominating the overall market with a 66% share. Along with being one of the largest consumers of gold, India ranks fourth in global gold recycling, according to the World Gold Council (WGC).

According to CRISIL Research, the organized segment can continue to gain market share and account for 42-47% by fiscal 2026 from 33-38% in FY22 due to changing consumer preferences, i.e., increasing demand for diamond-studded and light-weight jewelry, a greater variety of designs and better design capabilities and favorable regulatory changes.

The Rs. 405 crore public offer of Senco Gold Limited comprises a fresh issue of equity shares aggregating up to Rs. 270 crore and an offer for sale of Rs. 135 crore from existing shareholders.

Risk factors to consider

Dependency on Gold jewelry sales: Nearly 90% of the company’s revenues have been dependent on the sale of gold jewelry. Any factors adversely affecting the procurement of gold or our sales of gold jewelry may negatively impact the business, financial condition, results of operations, and prospects.

Volatility in Gold markets and impact on inventory: Volatility in the market price of gold and diamonds has a bearing on the value of the company’s inventory and may affect their income, profitability, and scale of operations.

Negative cash flows: The company has experienced negative cash flows from operating and investing activities in previous fiscals which may adversely affect their financial condition, results of operations, and prospects in case the same continues in the future.

Related party transactions and Income tax raids: Company has entered into transactions with related parties that may potentially involve a conflict of interest. The company has also been subject to a search and seizure operation by the income-tax department in the past, which has resulted in taxation and criminal proceedings being initiated against the company and its individual promoter.

Contingent liabilities: The company has a number of contingent liabilities which can affect profitability adversely if any of these contingent liabilities crystallizes.

Geographic concentration of sales: As nearly 65% of the sales come from the eastern and northeastern regions of India, any adverse developments related to competition, economic downturn, and demographic changes in these regions, may adversely affect the business prospects, financial conditions, and results of operations of the company.
