Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Compliance and regulatory risks: Export-oriented businesses need to comply with various international standards and regulations regarding quality, safety, labor rights, and environmental practices. 
    • Joslon Ltd.’s strategy: Joslon has a Factory (DIFE) License and a Fire License. It has global membership with Registered Exporter System (REX) and Commonwealth Entrepreneurs Club UK; and Local Membership with BIDA, EPB, and BFLLFEA.
  • Supply Chain Disruptions: The availability of quality leather and other raw materials could be disrupted due to factors like price fluctuations, supply conditions, or geopolitical issues.
    • Joslon Ltd.’s strategy: Joslon Ltd. has connections with many suppliers for different types of raw materials. Moreover, the business also has connections with importers for procuring premium accessories that are hard to find domestically.
  • Deferred payments from domestic buyers: Joslon Ltd. serves some of the very renowned brands of Bangladesh. However, the orders received from such brands come with a condition of deferred payments. The business often has to wait over 60 days to get the payments.
    • Joslon Ltd.’s strategy: The business has been doing business with such brands for a long time now. It has built a good rapport with these brands. As a result, Joslon Ltd. gets a good amount of orders in every season. As the orders have become quite frequent, the deferred payments have become part of its payment chain resulting in an almost uninterrupted payment system.  
  • Currency Exchange Rate Risk: As an export-oriented business, exchange rate fluctuations can impact the company’s revenue and profitability. Sudden changes in exchange rates can make their products more expensive or less competitive in international markets. The dollar crisis might increase in the near future and there is a record-breaking drop in LC opening.
    • Joslon Ltd.’s strategy: The business has ample experience with currency exchange rate risk due to being in this line of business for a significant duration. The business often gets the opportunity to get an advance payment on orders as per certain LC conditions.
  • Trade Regulations and Tariffs: Joslon Ltd. is subject to trade regulations and tariffs,  imposed by importing countries which can hinder market access and impact export volumes. However, this issue is equally applicable to all exporting businesses.
  • Political turmoil due to the upcoming election: There might 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 considering their cash flow.

biniyog.io will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. Joslon Limited would have the right to reject the products due to quality etc. The risk is expected to be minimal since Joslon Ltd. will choose the items before biniyog.io buys them.

Joslon Limited will share a security cheque. Moreover, a guarantor will be introduced in the contract for adding an extra layer of security for the investors.
