For a list of our branches refer to our website: MFSL is a non-banking financial company registered with the RBI and it is engaged in the business of financing, which primarily comprises giving loans against shares, and making investments. In its financing and investment business, MFSL offers loans against shares to its clients, secured by liquid and marketable securities at appropriate margin levels. Its LAS business helps their clients leverage their equity market positions to take increased exposure. The company was originally incorporated as 'Satyam Fiscal Services Private Limited' and the name was changed to 'Microsec Financial Services Limited' on October 21, 2005. It is also the ultimate holding company of the Microsec Group. The promoters acquired the entire shareholding of the company from the previous shareholders. Prior to its acquisition by the current promoters on August 1, 2005, the company was a financial services company and was engaged in the business of financing and investment management. MFSL offers loans to clients, including brokerage clients of MCap and MCL, against specified securities which fall within the 'approved list' of the Microsec Group. Only a certain percentage of the market value of the securities is advanced as loan, and this helps to provide for market fluctuations in the value of the security. The client is required to deposit and maintain a appropriate margin and is responsible for infusing additional funds in case the margin falls below the prescribed limit, failing which MFSL has the power to sell the securities to the extent that would be required in order to maintain the required margin. Margin levels of exposure can be monitored on a real-time basis as the selling price of the securities securing the loan are usually transparent and easily accessible on a stock exchange. As at March 31, 2010, 27 clients of MFSL maintained a margin of 50% or more and the loan amounts outstanding in respect of such clients aggregated to approximately Rs. 140.94 million; 44 clients maintained a margin between 25% to 50% and the loan amounts outstanding in respect of such clients aggregated to approximately Rs. 155.83 million; one client maintained a margin below 25% and the loan amounts outstanding in respect of such client aggregated to approximately Rs. 8.35 million. MFSL had no non-performing assets as on March 31, 2010. Until fiscal 2009, no material amount was written off on account of bad debts. However, MFSL paid Rs. 39.50 million as liability for early recall of loans during the Fiscal 2009.

  4. 4. Microsec Financial Services Ltd. Financial Services SBICAP Securities Limited 16 September, 2010 • 4 Risk Factors Outstanding litigation against the company, its subsidiaries and the group company The company, subsidiaries and group companies are involved in disputes with various parties arising from their operations from time to time. Their legal proceedings are pending at different levels of adjudication before various courts and tribunals. Should any new developments arise, such as a change in law or rulings against the company or its subsidiaries by appellate courts or tribunals, the company or its subsidiaries may need to make provisions in its financial statements, which could adversely impact its business results. Furthermore, if significant claims are determined against the company and it is required to pay all or a portion of the disputed amounts, there could be a material adverse effect on the company's business and profitability. Funding requirements and the deployment of the net proceeds are based on management estimates and may be revised from time to time, which may adversely affect the results of operations Their funding requirements and the deployment of the net proceeds have not been appraised by anybank, financial institution or any other independent institution. Substantial part of the funds raised through this issue is proposed to be used for the financing activities of the company. In fiscal 2010, the financing activity contributed approximately 26% of their standalone revenues, but since this activity has been commenced recently since May 2005, their results may differ substantially going forward. Further, in view of the highly competitive nature of the industry in which they operate, they may revise their management estimates from time to time and consequently their funding requirements may also change. This may result in the rescheduling of their funds deployment and a change in their proposed expenditure for a particular object which may adversely affect their results of operations. Extended loans against shares, or margin loans, to the clients, and any default by a client coupled with a downturn in the stock markets could result in substantial loss The company and MRPL, at times, also extend significant credit to clients at specified interest rates for the purchase of shares. In the case of highly volatile stock market or adverse movements in stock price, clients may not be able to repay their loans, and the collateral securing the loans may have decreased significantly in value, resulting in losses they may not be able to support. For instance, in fiscal 2010 an amount aggregating to Rs. 11.27 million was written off as loss on assignment of receivables, in the books of the company, in respect of three clients. Operations are significantly concentrated in the eastern and north eastern regions, and failure to expand the operations may restrict growth and adversely affect business Historically, their operations have been focused on the eastern and north eastern regions of the country. Accordingly, a very substantial part of their revenues are generated from operations in eastern and northeastern India. Failure to expand their operations either through branches or business associates or otherwise may restrict their growth potential and adversely affect their business plan. This will adversely affect business operations and growth of business. ~ Outstanding litigation against the company, its subsidiaries and the group company For complete information and a complete list of the risk factors, please refer the Red Herring Prospectus. • Source: RHP ~ Funding requirements and the deployment of the net proceeds are based on management estimates ~ Extended loans against shares
