Awfis Space Solutions IPO details.


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

  • The business has a track record of net losses, negative return on net worth (RoNW), and negative earnings per share (EPS). In order to achieve profitability, the firm must grow and maintain its revenue while controlling costs. Failure to meet these objectives might have a negative impact on our operations, business, cash flows, and financial health.
  • It's possible that the business won't be able to draw in enough new business, keep hold of its current clientele—some of whom sign short-term service contracts (Client Agreements)—or agree on reasonable prices to grow and maintain its clientele.
  • According to their MA model, they must locate space owners, form partnerships with them, and come to agreements on profit or revenue sharing with these owners. They cannot guarantee that, in order to expand their business and overall profitability, they will be able to draw in additional space owners on favourable terms.

  • Their business, operating results, cash flows, and financial situation might all suffer as a result of the risks that are inherent in the SL model, which they might not be able to manage.
  • To expand their clientele and bring in money, they rely on these partnerships. Any unfavourable customer experience might hinder business development and profitability as well as their capacity to draw in and keep customers.
  • As of December 31, 2023, centres in Bangalore, Mumbai, Pune, and Hyderabad accounted for 67.82% of their rental income from co-working spaces. As a result, a sizable amount of their co-working space income comes from centres that are concentrated in a small number of cities, and any unfavourable developments affecting these centres, cities, or regions could have a negative impact on their operations, financial situation, and business.
  • Because their company involves providing services at their centres that meet high quality requirements, operational risks are a given. Their business, operational outcomes, cash flows, and financial situation might all suffer if these risks are not managed.
  • Their company's operations, financial situation, and performance might all be impacted if they are unable to pay back their existing debts.
  • Their company, prospects, and operational outcomes may be negatively impacted by evolving laws, rules, and regulations as well as legal concerns, including the unfavourable application of tax laws.
  • Investors may be liable for Indian taxes on income received from dividend distributions and equity share sales.
