Risk in The IPO
Outstanding Litigation Proceedings
There are certain outstanding litigation proceedings involving the Company, Subsidiaries, Directors and Promoters, any adverse outcome which may have an adverse impact on the reputation, business, financial condition, results of operations and cash flows. Such proceedings could divert management time and attention and consume financial resources in their defense or prosecution. The amounts claimed in these proceedings have been disclosed to the extent ascertainable and quantifiable and include amounts claimed jointly and severally from the Company, the Directors and the Subsidiaries.
Any Negative Cash Flows in the Future
Negative cash flows over extended periods, or significant negative cash flows in the short term, could materially impact the ability to operate the business and implement the growth plans. Any negative cash flows in the future would adversely affect the cash flow requirements, which may adversely affect the ability to operate the business and implement the growth plans, thereby affecting the financial condition.
Company May Not Successfully Identify and Acquire Suitable Parcels of Land for Development
The Company may be unable to successfully identify and acquire suitable parcels of land for development, which may impede the growth and could also adversely affect the business prospects, financial conditions and results of operations. The ability to identify suitable parcels of land for development is a vital element of the Company’s business and involves certain risks, including acquiring appropriate and contiguous parcels of land. The Company has an internal assessment process for identification and acquisition of land which includes a due diligence exercise to assess the title of the land and its suitability for development, development potential and marketability.
The Company Has Significant Unsold Units Among Ongoing Projects
There is a lag between the time the Company acquires land and the time it constructs and develops a project and sells the inventories. Given that the market for properties is relatively illiquid, there may be little or insufficient demand for properties at the expected sale price. The risk of owning unsold inventories can be substantial and the market value of the same can fluctuate significantly as a result of changing economic and market conditions. If the Company is unable to sell unsold inventory currently held, the business, results of operation and financial condition may be adversely affected.
