Risk factors to consider:

100% revenue comes from government entities: 100% of the revenue is generated from business transactions with government entities or agencies. Any change in the governments, in the markets in which they operate, changes in policies, and/or their inability to recover payments therefrom in a timely manner or at all, would adversely affect their operations and revenues which in turn would adversely affect profitability. In addition, they may be subject to additional regulatory or other scrutiny associated with commercial transactions with government-owned or controlled entities and agencies. 100% of revenue is generated through government tenders so the Company’s trade receivables which constituted nearly 23% and 43% respectively in the last 2 years are receivables from governments.

Capital-intensive nature of business: The industry in which the operates is capital-intensive in nature, and involves relatively long gestation periods. Their substantial financing for business operations and the failure to obtain additional financing on terms commercially acceptable to us may adversely affect their ability to grow and our future profitability.

Higher Trade Receivables and Inventories: Trade Receivables and Inventories form a substantial part of the company’s current assets and net worth. the trade receivable and inventories on an aggregate basis constitute Rs. 22,830.08 Lakhs, Rs. 21,195.12 Lakhs, and Rs. 12,871.52 Lakhs, which is 46.70%, 51.10% & 42.93% respectively of total current assets respectively. Failure to manage the same could have an adverse effect on their net sales, profitability, cash flow, and liquidity.
