1. In its RHP, the company said it has a track record of reporting losses, and it may not be able to maintain profitability in the future.

The company said, "Our limited operating history makes it difficult to accurately evaluate our future business prospects."

2. The company's current loss reserves are based on estimates of future claim liability. If they prove inadequate, further increases in reserves could eventually adversely affect its operations.

3. As prescribed under the Insurance Act, the company must meet the mandatory control level of solvency margin. The company said, it could be subject to regulatory actions which can slow down its growth.

4. Natural disasters, terrorist attacks, and other catastrophic events could significantly increase customer claims. This can cause losses in the company's investment portfolio and damage its business, financial condition, and operations.

5. The outstanding legal proceedings involving the company, its promoters and directors may impact the company negatively.

6. The Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority (IRDAI) has issued warnings, show-cause notices, and imposed penalties against the company due to non-compliance with various regulatory prescriptions in the past. The company could be subject to such regulatory actions in the future. The company remains subject to extensive supervision and regulatory inspections by IRDAI.

7. Motor vehicle insurance products substantially contribute to the company's revenue and profitability. Any constraint on selling these products due to regulatory changes and changing customer preferences could have a material impact on the company's business.

8. The company's business can be adversely affected if it fails to underwrite risks accurately and change competitive premiums to its customers.

9. Denial of claims or failure to accurately and timely pay claims could affect the company's business prospects.

10. Credit risks related to its investments and day-to-day operations may cause losses.
