  • Information Memorandum Henkel India Limited

    RISK FACTORS Risk envisaged by the Management: A. Risks Internal to the Company 1. Risks relating to business operations The operations of the Company are subject to the assumptions in demand and supply position in terms of quantity and price of raw material and finished goods. B. Risks External to the Company 1. International presence in the Indian consumer Market is gaining ground

    and product prices continue to reduce. Management Perception The Company carries appropriate sensitive analysis of various assumption while drawing the business plans so as to minimize the risk relating, which may be cause due to sudden change in various assumption considering for drawing the business plan. 2. Unchecked import of cheap products may also affect the sales of the

    Company. Management Perception The company proposes to address this risk by focused efforts to reduce the costs of operations and match the ever growing consumer expectations both in terms of the quality of the products and services, persuading the Government to take appropriate and effective steps to check the import of substandard and cheap products. The Government has already imposed anti-dumping duty on import of various products. These measures will help the company in addressing the above risk. 3. Unfavourable trends in import tariffs on key raw materials and products may adversely impact the cost structure and/or selling prices of some of the products in the domestic markets thereby potentially affecting margins. Management Perception In view of India's commitment to WTO to reduce tariffs to WTO bound rates, the impact of tariffs is not likely to be substantial in the future. 4. The weakness lies in the competition envisaged from companies with lower cost structure in the developing world, the market for sale of the products manufactured by Henkel India Ltd is subject to price fluctuations owing to changes in the domestic demand, export, import, and production level of other competitors.

    During the year 2003 2004 the company witnessed the breaking of various records, viz., highest bar production, highest zeolite production, highest zeolite export, highest cleanser production and over all highest year production. Hence these competitions envisaged can be adequately overcome. Note to risk factors:-

    As per the Scheme of amalgamation, approved by the Hon'ble High Court of Judicature at Chennai, vide order dated 26.04.2005, the entire running business of the transferor company (HENKEL SPIC INDIA LIMITED) is being transferred to the transferee company [HENKEL INDIA LIMITED (formerly CALCUTTA CHEMICAL COMPANY LIMITED)] and the same will be carried on by the transferee company on a going concern basis. Accordingly all the above risks are being addressed and will continue to be so addressed by the transferee company also and the company does not foresee any adverse impact on the business of the company in future on this account.
