Key concerns about Rossari Biotech:
The continuing effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on business and operations is highly uncertain and cannot be predicted, HDFC Securities said in its report.
"Rossari Biotech is the largest manufacturer of textile specialty chemicals in India and its business and financial performance is significantly dependent on sale of specialty chemicals to Indian textile manufacturers and export of its specialty chemicals to textile manufacturers in Bangladesh, Vietnam, and other global markets," HDFC Securities said.
"As a result of RBL's dependence on the textile industry, its sales volumes, profitability and liquidity are closely tied to the demand for textiles in India and globally and a slowdown in the textile industry may result in a reduction in the volume of the textile chemicals business, which could materially and adversely affect the business, financial condition and results of operations," HDFC Securities added.
