Risk in The IPO
Since September 12, 2022 the Company owns 100% of the equity shareholding of its Subsidiaries. As the Company did not own 100% of the equity shareholding of the Subsidiaries during Fiscal 2022, Fiscal 2021 and Fiscal 2020, the Restated Financial Information does not include financial information for Subsidiaries prior to their acquisitions by the Company. Accordingly, the Restated Financial Information, as of, and for the years ended, March 31, 2022, 2021 and 2020, are not comparable to any future financial results that the company may prepare. In addition, because of their nature, the Proforma Consolidated Financial Information addresses a hypothetical situation and, therefore, does not represent the factual results of operations or financial condition.
Dependent on a Limited Number of Customers
The Company is dependent on, and derives a substantial portion of its revenue from, certain customers, Signify Innovations India Limited, erstwhile Philips India, and over 85% of the revenue is derived from the top twenty customers. Cancellation by the top customers or delay or reduction in their orders could have a material adverse effect on the business, results of operations and financial condition.
Lack of Long-term Volume Purchase Commitments
The Company does not receive firm and long-term volume purchase commitments from its customers. If the customers choose not to renew their supply contracts with the Company or continue to place orders with the Company, the business and results of operations will be adversely affected. The Company typically enters into a period purchase orders for a specific range of products with the customers which is valid for three years and renewed thereafter.
Dependent on R&D
The Company is dependent on the R&D activities for the future success. If the Company does not successfully develop new products in a timely and cost-effective manner, the business, results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected. The R&D department focuses on product designing, die and mould designing, electronic circuit designing and prototype designing. The development and commercialisation of the products are complex, time-consuming, costly and involve a high degree of business risk. The Company may encounter unexpected delays in the development of new products and these new products may not perform as the Company expected.
The Company operates in a competitive environment and may not be able to effectively compete due to various factors not under its control, which could have a material adverse effect on the business, results of operations and financial condition. The market wherein the company operates is competitive, rapidly evolving and is characterized by frequent introductions of new piping products, lighting solutions, applications and technologies. Failure to compete successfully against current or future competitors could have a material adverse effect on the business, results of operations and financial condition.
