Discussion on Affordable Robotic & Automation Limited IPO:


    Affordable robotic

    Auditor resigned AGAIN
    Was appointed in Aug 2018

    Dear friends,

    We are now experiencing that SMEs are not able to deliver the same returns which they were giving us around 6 months back.  I have tried to find out the reasons and found some points which I m putting herewith :

    1.  Over-expectations from retailers from SMEs

    2.  Change of sentiment (market conditions)

    3.  Removal of LTCG (got feedback from some ultra HNIs).

    4.  Dreaming of circuits (still in memories).

    5.  Pricing of SME IPOs are considerably high.

    6.  Introduction of funding in SME IPOs (this put up some extra pressure during listing)

    *SME exchange is only a tool which enables retail investors to do private equity in startups and small companies. Anyone who doesn’t invest with a loooong term mindset, and with proper risk allocation, will soon be dissatisfied and sell at whatever price..leading to sharp falls.*

    It is not justified to comment on each rise and each fall … if you are applying in SMEs then please sit patiently … and if you cannot sit patiently then may please sold off your holdings and sleep peacefully.

    Any other comments / queries are most welcome.



    Many vendors outstanding payments.

    Company not being able to pay salaries.

    Company in a bad shape.
    All deliveries are always delayed.
