Why should Investors Sell?

  • Decrease in Bottom Line: The company had recorded a net loss of USD 0.83 million in Q2FY22 compared to a gain of USD 1.61 million in Q2FY21 due to the high cost of revenue and operating expenses.
  • Dependency on Small Customers: The company rely on a small number of clients for a large percentage of its revenue; therefore, the loss of any of these customers, or failure to acquire new significant customers, might harm its income and impair its business.
  • Weak Margins: As the company had incurred loss in Q2FY22, its EBITDA, operating, and net margins are negative compared to positive industry margins.
  • Highly Competitive market: The company’s business model of customer engagement software is highly competitive. There are no significant hurdles of entry in this industry. Hence established or new companies may enter the market in future.
