Here are some of the key risks listed by the company in its Red-Herring Prospectus (RHP):

Allied Blenders and Distillers IPO - Key Risks 

  • The company's revenue from operations in Fiscal 2021, 2022, and 2023 was primarily derived from the sales of its whisky products, which generated 97.58%, 96.90%, and 95.38% of that revenue, respectively, and 95.76% and 94.33% of that revenue for the nine months that ended on December 31, 2022, and December 31, 2023. Any decline in these goods' sales might have a significant negative impact on the company's operations, prospects, financial situation, and business.
  • The company's PAT Margin and profit after tax for the year/period have historically fluctuated greatly. There is no assurance that they will become better or that their business will be able to make more money in the future.
  • The Indian-made foreign liquor (IMFL) market is becoming more competitive, which might lead to pressures that negatively impact their operations, cash flows, prospects, company, and financial situation.
  • The operations and financials of their business may be impacted by any previous or present measures taken by the Central Consumer Protection Authority or any other statutory or regulatory organisations.
  • Their operations, financial situation, and company might all suffer if their agreements with the bottling facilities are terminated.

  • In the regular course of business, the company entered into a number of related party transactions. However, they are unable to guarantee that these transactions won't negatively impact their operating and financial performance.
  • The market for their products may be impacted by a tax rise or modification to the tax calculation formula, which might have a negative impact on their business, finances, operational performance, and future prospects.
  • Many Central and State rules apply to the company's activities. Modifications to the regulatory landscape might result in higher expenses for us or restrict our ability to conduct business.
  • Income tax authorities are now investigating the firm; the company is not aware of the outcome of these investigations at this time.
  • The firm might not be able to raise the price at which its products are sold, which might have a negative impact on its operations, financial situation, business, and prospects.
