Use of Proceeds

Proceeds of almost Rs 151 crore from the sale of new shares will be used to finance capital expenditure needed to purchase equipment or machinery.


The company makes transfer case systems, torque coupler and dual-clutch transmission solutions for leading automakers in India.

It also manufactures torque transfer systems including both four-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive, synchronizer systems for manual transmissions and DCT, and can also develop transmission systems for electric vehicles.

It counts Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., Tata Motors Ltd., and global supplier such as BorgWarner among its clients.

The company plans to increase market share in both the Indian and overseas markets by offering comprehensive transmission solutions and components to electric vehicle manufacturers.

It has already been awarded a contract for the supply of EV transmission systems for a leading EV maker in India. However, the supply hasn't started yet.

It is also eyeing the increasing demand for automatics in the utility vehicle segment.

The company's sales in the fiscal year 2021-22 were comprised of 74% from the domestic market, 11.7% from Russia and 8.6% from China.

In terms of customers, 95% of the sales came from top five clients, with 56% of the sales coming from a single customer in the year ending March.

Risk Factors

  • The business largely depends on top five customers, and the loss of such customers or a significant reduction in purchases by such customers will have a material adverse impact on the company.

  • The geographical concentration of exports to certain countries and the inability to operate and grow the business in such countries may have a material adverse effect on the company's financial condition, results of operations, cash flows and future business prospects.

  • The company relies on some third-party suppliers for certain key components and raw materials required for manufacturing systems and components. A disruption in the supply of these key components could impact on-time supplies and input cost, if resourced from other suppliers.

  • The company's operations involve extending credit for pre-agreed periods of time to customers, and consequently, faces the risk of uncertainty regarding the receipt of these outstanding amounts. In six months ended September, trade receivables were at 52% of revenue from operations.

  • The development of technologically advanced systems and components is a time-consuming and expensive process with uncertain timelines and outcomes. Dependence on the success of R&D and the failure to develop new or improved products or process improvements will negatively impact its competitive position.
