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

  • Due to the delays in developing its land banks and hotel assets, the firm is subject to risks. The company's operations, financial situation, cash flows, and operating results might all suffer from any delays in the development of new hotel buildings or the extension of their current facilities.
  • The development and construction of serviced apartments at EM Bypass, a one-time project for which the firm has no prior expertise, exposes the company to risks.
  • Due to specific disagreements, there are times when statutory dues are not paid in whole or are paid late. The company's financial standing and cash flows might be negatively impacted by any late or non-payment of these statutory obligations, which could result in financial penalties from the relevant government agencies.
  • Online travel agencies and middlemen account for the majority of the company's hotel reservations. If these online travel agencies and middlemen keep growing in market share relative to the company's direct booking channels, they might be able to demand larger commissions for the services rendered or major concessions, such as lower hotel rates, which would hurt the company's profits and operational outcomes.
  • The company had restated losses in the past. Any losses in the future could adversely affect our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows.
  • The company has debt that needs to be paid off with large cash flows, and this, together with the terms and limitations set forth in the financing agreements, might make it more difficult for them to expand their business and function freely.
  • A few legal actions involving the corporation, its subsidiaries, directors, and promoters. Their profitability, reputation, company, operational outcomes, financial situation, and cash flows might all suffer from a negative outcome in any of these procedures.
  • Their top five owned hotels account for a significant amount of their earnings (about 75% of the total income in fiscal 2023), with THE PARK Kolkata making up 21.75% of the total income. Any unfavourable event that impacts the hotels or the areas in which they are located might have a negative impact on their operations, financial condition, cash flows, and company.
  • A few of the hotels are situated on property and in buildings that they have leased from other people. Their business, operational results, financial situation, and cash flows might all suffer if they are unable to adhere to the conditions of the lease agreements, renew their existing ones, or sign new ones.
  • The company has previously had negative cash flows as a result of financing and investment operations. Future negative cash flows might have an adverse effect on the company's financial situation and operational performance.
