  • However, according to our Shariah Advisors, biniyog.io and the investors will NOT be liable if the day-to-day operations of the business are not fully Shariah-compliant.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Delay in payments: As a manufacturer and wholesaler, Golden Touch supplies products to many different parties such as retailers, second-party wholesalers, corporate houses (customized orders), etc. Dealing with such parties often results in credit sales. The collection of receivables can take more time than expected. This results in cash being stuck in a cycle that ultimately hurts the profit margin. If the payment from such parties is delayed by a significant time, the profitability of the business can be hurt badly.
    • Golden Touch’s strategy: The business deals with parties through such agreements so that the payment collection schedules do not go off-track. For example, the business often takes some advance payment from certain parties to mitigate the “cash being stuck in a cycle for too long” issue. Additionally, the business has a good connection with the authority who has issued the current work-order of shoulder bags. The chance of any significant delay in getting the payment from them is low.  
  • Inflation and macroeconomic issues: Investors should already be aware that prices of materials are going up worldwide and coupled with the devaluation of taka, this is making products costlier. This is also impacting the lifestyle and purchasing power of consumers. However, the probability of the demand going down for backpacks and similar items is low. But volatility of the raw materials price can hurt the profit margin of the business significantly.
    • Golden Touch’s strategy: The business has a somewhat stable sourcing channel. Moreover, buying raw materials in bulk will allow the business to enjoy extra discounts that will increase the margin slightly. 
  • Lower profit margin on overall turnover during off-season: The business makes considerably lower profit in the off-season due to the overall sales being slow. Sometimes, there are shortages of customized orders from universities, corporates and other organizations. This leads to a drop in their overall profit margin as the business has to offer competitive price to get hold of bulk orders.   
    • Golden Touch’s strategy: The business has a good rapport build up in different organizations. This lets the business enjoy the opportunity of serving customized bulk orders at lesser competitive rates. The business also delivers quality work to ensure the retention of its current “bulk order” client base.  

  • Possibility of political turmoil following the upcoming election: Our assessment assumes that there will be some macroeconomic turmoil towards the end of 2023 before the general election. This may impact any business.

biniyog.io has done in-house analyses of the projected returns of the business and they are expected to be able to repay on time, if not hugely impacted by macroeconomic issues.

biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. The products will then be handed over to Golden Touch within a very short time frame.

Golden Touch  would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since Golden Touch  themselves will be choosing the items before biniyog.io buys them.

This is a necessary risk to ensure Shariah compliance of the transaction.

Golden Touch  will share installment cheques with biniyog.io. A personal guarantee security cheque will also be kept from the business owner. Moreover, a guarantor will be introduced in the contract for adding an extra layer of safety for the investors.
