Direct Tax liability of Rs. 9 crores is an eye opener for Retail investors. As 13 Cr IPO will be used to fund tax demands which are not disclosed in the Red herring prospectus.
Loan On Books is approximately Rs. 9 crores which is quite alarming.
Stag Revenue. Revenue has not grown much and PAT delivery is only 1-1.15 crores, makes issue overvalued.
Too many related party transactions, creates great confusion.
