KNR Constructions Limited is a small sized infrastructure company & mainly competes with domestic players in the road construction & irrigation segments. While service quality, technical capability, past performance record, experience, safety records & availability of skilled personnel are key factors influencing client decisions, price often is deciding factor when it comes to awarding contract. There are a number of competitors having better financials & other resources who have achieved greater market penetration. This may induce the company to accept contracts with lower margins & values if they are unable to compete with other bigger players in the large & high margin contracts. Hence we recommend investors to Avoid subscribing to this IPO.
