    • Their scalable and asset-light business model is supported by the company's improving financials.
    • They also have an experienced and professional management team.

    Some risk factors

    • The company's business and profitability are significantly dependent on the performance of the real estate market in India, and particularly in the South. Fluctuations in the market may affect the business's revenues and earnings.
    • 77.9% of the estimated saleable area of their ongoing, under development and forthcoming projects, are located in South India. This exposes them to risks from economic, regulatory, and other changes as well as natural disasters in this part of India.
    • There are pending legal proceedings that involve the company, subsidiaries, directors, group companies, and promoters. Such procedures could drain the financial resources of the company.
    • The company may have to make advance payments to the owners of the land when they enter into joint development agreements, which may not be recoverable.
    • Around 22.1% of their saleable area is located in Kolkata. Their future business, financial condition and result of operations are all dependent on the performance of the real estate market in Kolkata.
    • The impact of Covid-19 on their business and operations in the coming is unknown and impossible to predict.
    • Substantial rises in the cost of labour and essential building products, as well as shortfalls or disruptions in availability, might influence our anticipated construction costs and schedules, leading in cost overruns and reducing their earnings.

    India's residential sector

    India's growth fuelled by increase in service industries, increasing urbanization, improved per capita earnings, decreasing household size and various macro factors have led to growth of residential unit needs. Organized RE growth in large cities and towns has led to quality supply in the sector addressing the needs of all economic strata. Annually the supply across the 7 major cities has been over 1.3 lakh units.

    The residential sector is slowly recovering - 2018 witnessed a rise in residential market activity with over 1.6 lakh new launches as well as 1.4 lakh sales (approximately 70% increase from 2017).

    However, there was again a drop in supply in year 2019 due to the liquidity issues as lending had slowed down.

    While the sector was slowly witnessing improvement, year 2020 has again witnessed a decline due to pandemic which resulted in total shutdown in construction activity during the nation-wide lockdown.

    While the 6-month moratorium on term loans has provided a temporary breather to homebuyers and developers, stressed non-banking financial company (NBFCs) and risk averseness of banks has exacerbated the liquidity crunch for the sector.

    The silver lining is the work from home that has made people look for comfortable homes, larger homes for want of more space for the online office, school activities.

    The reduced home loan rates is further making it attractive for end users to invest in the housing.

    IPO market is booming in India. Will the trend continue?

    Following the recent market correction, market participants should keep an eye on the Indian and global markets as new corona variant has hit global bourses very badly.

    This could affect the primary market as well.

    However, given the abundant liquidity and the market regulator easing listing procedures, the IPO craze is understandable.

    Data suggests that companies raised funds to the tune of US$4.6 bn from IPOs last year. The market believes this amount will be easily surpassed in 2021.

    As companies line up to raise funds from the market amid high valuations, investors need to consider many factors before investing their money in an IPO.

    If you are investing in an IPO, weigh in all the positive and negative factors affecting the company.

    Take a close look at the company's financials and valuations. It would give you a clear picture of what's brewing.

    Happy Investing!
