The company is engaged in the construction and repair of warships and submarines for the MoD for use by the Indian Navy and other vessels for commercial clients. It is a wholly-owned Government of India company and the only shipyard to have built destroyers and conventional submarines for the Indian Navy. Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited also has several workshops with machines and equipment for hull fabrication and constructing ships.

  • It is the only public sector defense shipyard constructing conventional submarines.
  • Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders Limited has world-class infrastructure capable of serving the requirements of the Ministry of Defence.
  • Its facilities are located strategically in close proximity to its vendors and customers.
  • The company has led to an increase in the indigenization of the vessels and implementation of the “Make in India” campaign.

2. Objects of the Offer

Mazagon Docks Shipbuilders Limited proposes to utilize the net proceeds from this issue towards funding the following objects:

  1. To carry out the disinvestment of 30,599,017 Equity Shares by the Selling Shareholder constituting 15.17% of the Company’s pre-Offer paid-up Equity Share capital; and
  2. Achieve the benefits of listing the Equity Shares on the Stock Exchanges

3. Risk Factors

  • The continuing effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on the company’s business and operations is highly uncertain and cannot be predicted.
  • Mazagon Docks is primarily dependent on the MoD for defense orders and have mostly been awarded such orders on a nomination basis by the MoD for use by the Indian Navy. There is no assurance that future defense orders will be awarded to it by the MoD. Further, recent changes in the policy framework governing defense procurement and manufacturing in India may result in the company no longer being given such orders which may have an adverse effect on its business growth, financial condition, and results of operations.
  • The imposition of liquidated damages and invocation of performance bank guarantees/indemnity bonds by the company’s customers could impact its results of operations and it may face potential liabilities from lawsuits and claims by customers in the future.
  • Any decline, delay, or reprioritization of funding under the Indian defense budget or that of customers including the MoD for use by the Indian Navy could adversely affect the company’s ability to grow or maintain its sales, earnings, and cash flow.
  • Any delays in procurement, nomination, or any other decision made by the company’s customers and collaborators may result in time and cost overruns in the completion of its shipbuilding and submarine projects. This can have an adverse effect on its business, financial condition, and results of operations.
  • The company’s earnings and margins may vary based on the mix of its contracts and programs, performance, and ability to control costs. It may incur losses as a result of cost overruns, time overruns, lack of clarity in standards and specifications, and stringent defense procurement procedures which may have an adverse effect on its business, financial condition, and results of operations.
