Risks & Concerns:

Business of TJLs depends, in part, on factors affecting consumer spending that are out of its control.
TJL proposes to invest major portion of Net Proceeds towards establishing retail stores. However, it has limited operating

history in retail business.

costs, could adversely impact its income.

cannot be assured that sales from export operations will continue; if not, its income may decline.

and its operating expenses are denominated in Rupees.

gold on loan basis may adversely affect its financial condition and results of operation.
Changes in consumer attitudes to jewellery could be unfavourable and harm jewellery sales.

adverse effect on its results of operations.

TJL avail certain tax benefits under SEZ Act and other fiscal statutes. These tax benefits are available for a definite period of

time, which upon expiry or if withdrawn prematurely, may adversely affect its financial condition and results of operations.

Extract from grading rationale by CARE:

The grading of Tara Jewels Limited (TJL) reflects the experience of the promoters in the Gems & Jewellery industry, fully
integrated operations with established marketing and distribution channel and established relationship with clients. The
grading also takes into account the consistent growth in the operating income and the companys diversified product profile.
The grading is constrained by TJLs high operating risk arising out of the customer and geographical concentration of sales,
working capital intensive operations, susceptibility to volatility in raw materials prices and foreign exchange fluctuation risk.
The grading also factors TJLs planned expansion in highly competitive jewellery retail business in India and economic
uncertainty in the companys major export market.
