Signatureglobal India IPO Review – Industry Overview

The real estate sector is a  key contributor to India’s economy, which is  projected to reach a market size of $1 trillion by 2030 and contribute 13% to the GDP by 2025. Housing sales have increased by 48% YoY to ₹ 3.47 lakh crore in the last fiscal year due to larger volumes and better price realization.

Government initiatives have led to significant changes in the housing sector, primarily catered to by the private sector. These include the implementation of the Real Estate Regulator Act (RERA) and the Goods and Service Tax (GST). Developers have been given an additional year to repay lenders, aiding in cash flow management and reducing asset classification stress of Real Estate focused NBFCs.

Affordable housing has become a crucial part of the national agenda, particularly in urban areas. The NCR witnessed a 73% increase in housing sales from 2020 to 2021. Despite limited supply in 2022, the trend of absorption continued with a 59% rise in unit sales. Gurugram accounted for a 75% share of the 31,706 units launched in NCR in 2022.

The Government of Haryana has introduced two policies: The Affordable Housing Policy for high-rise group-housing and the Deen Dayal Jan Awas Yojna – Affordable Plotted Housing Policy for plots and low-rise independent floors. These policies aim to encourage planning and completion of group housing projects and development of high-density plotted colonies in Haryana.

Competitors of Signatureglobal India

Key competitors include established real estate developers such as DLF, Sobha, Macrotech Developers, and Prestige in the markets where the company operates. Signature Global also encounters competition from numerous smaller, unorganized operators in the residential segment.

Strengths of the company :

  • The company is recognized as the premier developer of affordable and mid-range real estate in Delhi NCR, with a wealth of experience in managing projects in these categories. It is a well known brand and has an extensive distribution network, and powerful digital marketing skills, all of which contribute to swift sales. Indeed, a significant portion of the company’s sales in the Gurugram and Sohna area, as well as under the AHP, are made directly
  • It possesses a well-established brand, robust distribution network, and digital marketing prowess, leading to accelerated sales. A notable 45.85% of sales in Gurugram and Sohna and 55.69% under the AHP are direct.
  • The company is  an active member of the IGBC and is  committed to environmental sustainability, implementing green building concepts in projects to reduce carbon impact and increase green cover.
  • The company has implemented uniform business procedures that allow it to provide top-notch housing solutions to its clients. In the majority of its projects, it utilizes aluminium formwork technology, which not only accelerates the construction process but also guarantees the production of robust and superior quality structures.

Weaknesses of the company: 

  • Signature Global’s business and profitability are significantly dependent on the performance of the real estate market in the Delhi NCR region, particularly in Gurugram and Sohna micro-markets in Haryana. The majority of its revenue is generated from these locations, and fluctuations in market conditions may affect its ability to sell projects at expected prices, adversely affecting revenues and earnings.
  • The company’s business and financial performance is dependent on policies such as the Affordable Housing Policy. Any withdrawal of such policies by the Haryana government could certainly affect the company’s revenue and operations.
  • Signature Global is engaged in the development of residential real estate projects for customers in the affordable and mid housing segment, predominantly in Gurugram and Sohna micro-markets. Its success is dependent on its ability to anticipate and respond to consumer requirements.
  • An increase in land prices or shortages of land available for development could have a material adverse effect on the company’s operations. The availability of developable land, particularly in Delhi NCR and Haryana, is limited, making the acquisition of new land highly competitive and costly.
  • The company has unsold units among its ongoing and completed projects. As of now, 16.85% of its commercial completed project units remain unsold. The risk of owning unsold inventories can be substantial, and their market value can fluctuate significantly due to changing economic and market conditions. If Signature Global is unable to sell its current unsold inventory, its business, results of operation, and financial condition may be adversely affected.
