Discussion on Bright Solar Limited IPO:

    Company has debtor days of 378 which is big negative for any business to sustain long in future.

    Please visit the link and see the team structure of Bright Solar Limited. All the team members looks experienced but most surprising fact is that total employee benefits expense for the FY18 is only 22 lacs. Pata nhn kitni salary mil rahi hai inko…..

    The company has paid only 4 lacs as a salary in FY17, which is quite strange . They have directors, independent directors, CFO, CMD and many verticals where they must have employed certain number of people. So on that ground this salary of only 4 lacs looks quite meagre.

    The Company Business Portfolio
      a)  Assembling of DC/AC Solar Pumps and Solar Pump Systems,
      b) EPC contracts of Solar Photovoltaic Water pumps,
      c) Consulting of Projects and tenders, Water supply and Sewerages Infra Project.
      d) The Company is planning to commence Solar Module manufacturing and water treatment plant assembling unit.
