The Entero Healthcare Solutions IPO's book running lead managers are ICICI Securities Limited, Dam Capital Advisors Ltd (formerly Idfc Securities Ltd), Jefferies India Private Limited, JM Financial Limited, and SBI Capital Markets Limited. The issue's registrar is Link Intime India Private Ltd.

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

  • Since its establishment, the firm has acquired other Indian distributors to grow its clientele and operations, and it may yet make further acquisitions in the future. But it's possible that the business won't be able to properly reap the rewards of previous or upcoming acquisitions.
  • Operating, finance, and investment activities have historically resulted in negative cash flows for the company, and this trend may persist going forward.
  • Customers returning items that are hazardous, expired, faulty, ineffective, or counterfeit, as well as product spoilage, breakage, and damage during shipment or storage, might result in losses for the firm and damage to its reputation.
  • Under the terms of their financing agreements, the company's lenders have placed some restrictive requirements on them, which might negatively impact their capacity to conduct business and hinder their ambitions for future expansion.
  • The company has a significant amount of debt and requires a lot of working capital to run its operations. An inadequate quantity of working capital or necessary finance might have a negative effect on the company's operations and profitability.
  • The company has pledged equity shares of some of its subsidiaries to certain lenders. Should events of default occur under the financing agreements, these lenders may invoke the applicable share pledge agreements, which would have a negative impact on their operations, financial performance, and future prospects.
  • With trade receivables, the company is exposed to credit risk.
  • Since the clients of the firm are not bound by long-term contracts, their ability to end their business associations abruptly might have a negative effect on the organisation.
  • The inability to maintain ideal inventory levels may result in higher operational expenses or in the inability to satisfy client orders, both of which might negatively impact the company's operations, financial standing, and future prospects.
  • Price changes for prescription drugs might have a negative impact on their business operations and financial results.
