The company estimates that since “Right issue of the Company is being made at a price which is far less than the current share price in the market and hence there is no major investment risk associated with the right issue. Normal risks associated with the business will remain, however, the Company is well placed in the market with proven track record which will help to mitigate such risk factors.”
