    Ask Automotive Limited IPO Strengths:

    • Ask Automotive Limited has a comprehensive portfolio of EV and powertrain-agnostic products and as of March 31, 2023, was supplying safety systems and critical engineering solutions to nine 2W EV OEMs in India. In addition, the company is developing capabilities for product migration from steel and plastics to Aluminium, for lightweighting and thermal management for e-powertrain and e-powertrain products.
    • Due to the capital-intensive nature of Ask Automotive Limited’s business, coupled with the heavy dependence on complex technology, machinery and systems, the market may be difficult for new entrants to encroach upon, due to its high entry barriers.
    • Ask Automotive Limited’s R&D efforts are focused on developing new formulations to address the changing ESG and safety standards. As of March 31, 2023, the company had a portfolio of 52 proprietary formulations that it uses in the production of AB systems for 2Ws, 3Ws, PVs and CVs, meeting stringent safety, durability and performance specifications of EV and ICE OEMs.
    • Ask Automotive Limited has introduced automation in its manufacturing processes that allow it to combine operations, eliminate multiple operators, retain control over its proprietary formulations and increase efficiency while controlling costs and maintaining consistent product quality. Furthermore, the production line configurations are fungible, allowing it to interchange capacity and product mix between product categories within and across automotive and non-automotive sectors, based on customer and operational requirements.
    • Ask Automotive Limited entered the EV sector in Fiscal 2021 to complement its existing suite of systems and solutions for the ICE sector. The company has developed technologically advanced products based on customer specifications in the EV sector, including e-powertrain pulleys for a 2W EV customer to help achieve lightweighting for its vehicles.
    • Ask Automotive Limited attribute its long-standing relationships with its customers to its focus on timely delivery, quality consciousness, cost efficiency, design, tooling and technological capabilities. The company intends to diversify and expand its business operations in accordance with the evolving needs of its customers and intends to leverage its long-standing relationship with such market players allowing it to leverage industry tailwinds in the automotive sector.

    Ask Automotive Limited IPO Risk Factors:

    • A significant portion (more than 80%) of the company’s revenue from operations in each of the last three Fiscals is attributable to the Indian two-wheeler automotive sector. Any adverse changes in the two-wheeler automotive sector could adversely impact the business, results of operations and financial condition.
    • Ask Automotive Limited is dependent on its top three customers who contribute more than 50.00% of the revenue from operations with its single largest customer contributing more than 30.00% of the revenue from operations in each of the last three Fiscals. The loss of any of these customers or a reduction in purchases by any of them could adversely affect the business, results of operations and financial condition of the company.
    • Ask Automotive Limited’s business and profitability are substantially dependent on the availability and cost of its raw materials, including Aluminium, and any disruption to the timely and adequate supply of raw materials, or volatility in the prices of raw materials may adversely impact the business, results of operations and financial condition.
    • Ask Automotive Limited is dependent on contract labour and any disruption to the supply of such labour for the manufacturing facilities or the inability to control the composition and cost of the contract labour could adversely affect its operations.
