FAQ:
Is there any investment risk involved?

Investments have risks by definition, especially if they are halal. Please find possible risk details for this campaign in the “Risk” section below.

 How is ‘fixed returns’ halal?

This is a sale contract (Murabaha) approved by our Shariah advisors, where investors will purchase products first (biniyog.io will facilitate the purchase), and then sell to Legend care and publication at a mark-up. This mark-up amount against sold products is the fixed return / profit for investors.

Details under “Contract conditions” and “Possession of Assets” part below.

Mr. Al-Mamun Reza (Khondokar) is the owner of Legend Publications.

Written by Legend Publications

I have completed Bachelors from Jahangirnagar University Department of History. I have previous experience of working in UCC, ICON  Plus, Joykoli Publications & Plus Series.

In 2016, after I got admission in the university, I started writing the book thinking about the needs of the university admission candidates and Alhamdulillah I got a huge response in the first year. 

In the future, Legend Publications will stand as the top publications of Bangladesh and also I will publish all the supporting books from class one to honors, inshallah and bring all the books to the E-platform.

Potential Risks

Accordion Content
  • Season-sensitivity: Legend Publications mainly sells books targeting university admission candidates. Therefore, most of the yearly revenue is generated during the pre-exam months. If sales of one admission season gets affected due to any reason, the profit margin will be hurt significantly.
    • Legend Publications’ strategy: The business has around 18-20 categories of books that include public university admission guides, government job preparation books, etc. Having this wide range of books keeps the sales wheel running throughout the year. The business generates stable online order sales every month. “Khondokar’s General Knowledge” is the blockbuster/ best-selling product of this business. Around 21,000 copies of it and around 12,000 copies of “BUP Booster” were sold in the last season.
  • Price hike by seller: The price of the books has been increased this year to adjust to the price-hike of the raw materials and other costs. If any strong competitor decides to keep the price significantly low, Legend Publication’s market demand might be jeopardized.
    • Legend Publications’ strategy: The demand of competitive exam books is considered to be inelastic to price changes. Meaning, increasing the price of the books should not hamper the sales because demands are always through the roof for such kinds of books.
  • Long credit-term affecting the working capital: Credit sales is the main constituent of this line of business. The common practice of such business is that the buyers receive the products before the start of the season making almost no payment or only small payments. The accounts are cleared after the end of the season. This results in cash being stuck in the cycle for around 5-7 months.
    • Legend Publications’ strategy: Legend Publications runs 2 coaching centres at two different locations, generates stable online order sales every month and one specific book is sold all throughout the year because of its extensive popularity.  This lets them manage the operating cost in the months when the cash is stuck in the credit cycle. Online sale of books also enables to business to manage for a certain portion of the operating expenses.
  • 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 will buy the products on behalf of investors first and secure ownership. The products will then be handed over to Legend Publications within a very short time frame.

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

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

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.

Legend Publications will share instalment cheques with biniyog.io. An undated security cheque will also be kept from the business owner. A guarantor will also be introduced in the contract for adding an extra layer of safety.
