Let’s look at some of the key risks listed by the company in its Red Herring Prospectus (RHP):

  • The Indian two-wheeler industry has accounted for a significant amount (more than 80%) of the company’s operating income in each of the last three fiscal years, which ended on June 30, 2022, June 30, 2023, and June 30 , 2023. Any unfavorable changes in the two-wheeler industry could have a negative impact on the company’s operations, financial condition and business results.
  • More than 80% of the company’s operating income for the last three fiscal years, which ended on June 30, 2022, June 30, 2023, and June 30, 2023, can be attributed to the Indian two-wheeler industry. Any adverse changes in the two-wheeler industry could have a negative impact on our business, operating results and financial conditions.
  • The availability and cost of their raw materials, including aluminum, is critical to their operations and profitability. Any disruption to the timely and adequate supply of raw materials, or volatility in raw material prices, could have a negative impact on their operations, financial condition and business.
  • The business has no exclusive agreements or definite obligations to supply any of its suppliers; instead, it relies on third parties to supply raw materials. The business, operating results, and financial position could suffer from losing the suppliers.
  • The company’s business, financial position, cash flows and operating results could suffer if its growth initiatives are not successfully implemented, particularly when it comes to gaining market share in the rapidly changing electric car industry.
  • The availability of counterfeit goods and their disregard for the confidentiality of their technical know-how could have a negative impact on the company’s operations and financial performance.
  • Product liability and other civil claims and expenses arising from product recalls may have a negative impact on the operations, financial status and performance of the firm.
  • On the grounds of the Industrial Development Corporation are several of the company’s manufacturing sites. Relocating their activities could adversely affect the company’s operations, finances and business if they are unable to comply with the terms of land use or extend the leases already in place for those manufacturing facilities.
  • The company is subject to changes in foreign exchange rates, which may have a negative impact on the value of equity shares and operating performance independently of each other.
  • The company has grown recently, but it may not be able to maintain or manage this growth properly. Due to the company’s heavy debt load, their business and financial position could suffer if they are unable to meet the repayment obligations and other terms of their financing arrangements.
