  36. 36. Concerns & Reasoning 1.) VA Tech Wabag’s municipal clients contribute 66% of revenues : Order Book as of Mar 31, 2013 (INR 42.8 bn) and relies substantially on municipal clients for its revenues. Any delay, termination or cancellation could adversely affect its results of operations. Company relies heavily on government business (centre, state, municipal bodies, PSU’s) and entities funded by multilateral aid agencies. Many of the projects are government sponsored and are often subject to delay. Of the order book at both the consolidated and parent levels 59%, is attributable to municipal clients and 31% to industrial clients. This may also create a Working Capital problem for the company in the future. 2.) Client concentration Risk : At present, VA Tech wabag derives a substantial portion of its income from a limited number of large clients. Cancellations by any of these clients will have a significant impact on business. Events such as change in management, mergers and acquisitions, change in government in the local and international market and political scenario or lack of funding by the government may lead to order cancellations which exposes the business to risks. 3.) VA Tech Wabag is subject to liquidated damages under its EPC and O&M contracts : VA Tech Wabag provides performance guarantees to its customers, which require it to complete projects within a specified timeframe. Failure to complete a project as scheduled, or in case of a performance shortfall in the quality and quantity of water or waste water treated, it could be liable to pay penalties in the form of agreed liquidated damages, which usually average about 10% of the project cost. Further, any inability to complete these projects in a timely manner could adversely affect its reputation and hence its growth prospects. “ Specialists in discovering Multibagger stocks “
