2. Diverse Applications: Their products serve a wide array of industries including Geotextile, Horticulture, Furniture, Construction, and Healthcare.

3. Geographical Presence: Historically, they have been more export-oriented with key markets in the USA, Taiwan, Canada, Denmark, and China. Recently, the company has shifted its attention to cater to the domestic market.

4. Expansion Plans: Shri Techtex is evolving by planning to introduce new business lines – Hot melt Coating Lamination and PP Multifilament Yarn.

B) Strengths:

1. Experienced Promoters and Management Team: This is an asset in any industry. Experienced leadership can guide the company through various challenges and exploit market opportunities effectively. Prime Location of the Manufacturing Facility: Being in a well-connected location close to transport hubs ensures smoother logistics and can lead to cost and time savings.

2. Substantial Installed Capacity: Their existing infrastructure can produce 3600 MT PP non-woven fabric annually, and with the expansion, they'll add more capacity for new product lines.

3. Diverse Application of Products: Serving multiple industries from Geotextile to Healthcare ensures a diversified revenue stream and reduced dependency on a single sector.

4. Historical Export Focus: Their track record of exporting to several countries indicates global recognition, quality assurance, and potential to tap international markets.

C) Weaknesses:

1. Historical Dependence on Offshore Customers: If there are global economic downturns or trade barriers, their revenue might be significantly affected. 2. Late Entry into Domestic Market: Given that they have recently started focusing on the domestic market, they might face stiff competition from existing domestic players and might need time to establish a strong foothold. 3. Over-reliance on PP Non-Woven Fabric: Although they are diversifying, their primary product is still PP non-woven fabric. A drastic technological change or market shift away from this product can affect their revenue. 4. Potential Implementation Challenges: Their expansion plans into new business lines could face unforeseen challenges, delays, or market acceptance issues

D) Risks in the Business:

The Group Company/entity are involved in similar line of Business that is being carried out by the IPO Company. Also the IPO Company has entered into various transactions with the Group Companies, companies and will continue to do in future. Lot of related party transactions are not usually good for investors.

E) Financials and Valuation:

1. Revenue has grown with a decent pace from 16 Cr in Fy20 to 60 Cr in Fy23. 2. Business has healthy EBITDA margins of 25%  in Fy23. 3. PAT has gone down from 12 Cr in Fy21 to 9 Cr in Fy23. This is not a good sign for any business. 4. In Fy23, the cash generated from operations is negative.
