1. Limited track record of operations
HMPL was incorporated in the year 1992 and was initially engaged into the business of construction of residential projects, however in FY2021, the company changed its line of business and is now engaged into the business of infrastructural development and works as a sub-contractor in executing various national highway road projects. The company was earlier not generating revenue until FY2020. However, based on the new work order received for completion of balance work of Wakan - Pali Highway, the company therefore generated revenue of Rs.24 Cr in FY2021 and further on the basis of additional work order received of Nagpur-Mumbai Super Communication Expressway Limited in January 2022, the company therefore generated higher revenue of Rs.113 Cr in FY2022. Also, the new promoters belong to project financing background and hold limited experience in executing construction contracts.
2. Tender based nature of operations and competitive industry
HMPL majorly provides road construction services to the State Government of Maharashtra. The revenue of the company is highly dependent on the number and value of tenders floated by the Government. Also, HMPL faces intense competition from several mid to big size players. Risk is more pronounced as tendering is based on minimum amount of biding of contracts, resulting into thin margins.
New Orders Secured:
22-06-2023 - Vadodra Mumbai Expressway - 352 cr.
09-06-2023 - Samruddhi Mahamarg - 119 cr.
I have limited knowledge about the construction and EPC industry. I ask other forum members to help and understand this company in a beautiful turnaround situation. It will also help if we can find something about Pawan Mallawat, the new management.
