Associates from JSAlphaa attended the AGM held on 9-07-2019 at Andheri, Mumbai from 11am to 12:30 pm approx

Management answering questions:

  1. R.P. Singh- Chairman of the board
  2. Mr. Tushar Kawedia- CFO

The following were the main concerns raised by investors which were answered by the management in the following manner:

  1. Why did the price fall from 102 to 66?

The management blamed macro factors like demonetisation, GST and the changes in mining laws in Rajasthan which lowered the toll collection along 2 of their projects. They were very vague and could not justify the fall properly.

  1. Will they be able to maintain the Rs 12 payout after their agreement for 2 of the roads expires next year?

The management was confident in maintaining their current cash flows despite the termination of their agreement for 2 roads provided their projections for traffic growth and increase in toll remains in line with 5.5 & 5%, and inflation is at an adequate rate. Further, they assured investors of an extension in collection periods if their projections for traffic growth and toll collections fall short.

  1. By how much has the management increased its stake and does it plan to continue to do so?

The management has been purchasing units from the open market and has increased its stake by 3.5% and total holdings from 15% have now reached around 18.5% .They also implied that they plan on increasing their stake further but did not confirm or deny it.

  1. Does the fund plan on repaying the principle amount back and by when?

The fund will return the principle amount back to the unit holders by 2041 provided there are no new project acquisitions. The exact breakup of the interest +dividend +principle is up to the management but they plan on dividend payouts from 2021. A total amount of Rs400 since IPO till 2041 is expected to be paid out to the unit holders which includes interest dividend and principle amounts.

  1. What are the risks associated in the future?

The management was slightly concerned about inflation rates not being in line with the government’s projections. If the inflation rate is not high enough, the toll amount collected will not be enough and will not qualify them for an extension and the unit holders will receive correspondingly lower returns. Hence inflation rates and changes in government regulation regarding tolls and their collections remain the biggest risk associated.

  1. How will the management raise funds for new projects?

The management was not sure about acquiring any new projects unless they are in synergy and match the current returns which are being provided (around 18%) which is difficult to find. If they do find a good fit they plan on using the 10% which in not distributed and mostly via debt. However their answered remained vague and unsure about new projects.

Benefits of Investing:

  • Higher implied yield and Lower downside risk in comparison to investors who invested at amounts higher and entered at IPO.
  • The governments increased interest in improving and laying out more infrastructure may benefit this trust
  • Liquidity since it is listed

Risks associated:

  • Changes in government policy where they might stop collecting tolls altogether.
  • The extensions provided may not be enough to recover cash flows lost if the traffic growth and increase in toll collections don’t match anticipated levels and will extend the recovery horizon beyond 2041
  • Inflation not matching projected levels will skew cash flows and returns to investors
  • The trust may not be able to maintain the Rs. 12 / implied yield at current levels if they plan on acquiring new projects. Or they cannot acquire new projects due to the current implied yield being too high.
  • The management didn’t give a clear picture when asked about the price falling from 102 to 67

Risks related to the company: (According to DRHP)
1. We had negative cash flow generated from investing activities for Fiscal 2019 on a consolidated basis. We had negative cash flow generated from investing and financing activities for Fiscal 2019, 2018 and 2017 on an unconsolidated basis and we may experience negative cash flows in the future.

  1. Regulatory, legislative or self-regulatory developments regarding data protection could adversely affect our ability to conduct our business.
  2. The market in which we participate is intensely competitive and we may not be able to compete successfully with our current or future competitors.

The market for mobile advertising solutions is highly competitive and rapidly changing with multiple regional and global players. Although it is dominated by digital giants such as Google and Facebook, there are over a hundred companies around the world who offer one or more components of this solution. However, only a few companies/groups operate internationally, including, among others, us, InMobi, Criteo, Tradedesk, Freakout, Mobvista and YouAppi. (Source: Frost & Sullivan Report).

  1. Our business is concentrated around key customers (approx 70 % from top 10 customers & approx 40% from top customer), which account for a significant amount of our revenue. If we fail to keep these customers or fail to diversify our customer base, our business, results of operations, cash flows and financial condition may be materially adversely affected.

Business Model:
Affle is  a global technology business with two business segments:

  1. A) Consumer Platform

The Consumer Platform primarily provides the following services: (1) new consumer conversions (acquisitions, engagements and transactions) through relevant mobile advertising (the company only makes money if the advertisement leads to a successful transaction); (2) retargeting existing consumers to complete transactions for e-commerce companies through relevant mobile advertising(specific ads targeted to consumers to encourage them to complete their transactions); and (3) an online to offline (“O2O”) platform that converts online consumer engagement into in-store walk-ins.

As at March 31, 2019,  Affle Consumer Platform had approximately 2.02 billion consumer profiles, of which approximately 571 million were in India, 582 million were in Other Emerging Markets (which comprises Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Africa and others) and 867 million were in Developed Markets (which comprises North America, Europe, Japan, Korea and Australia). During Fiscal 2019, the Affle Consumer Platform accumulated over 300 billion data points, which power the prediction and recommendation algorithm for the Affle Consumer Platform. The Consumer Platform is used by business to consumer (“B2C”) companies across industries, including e-commerce, fin-tech, telecom, media, retail and FMCG companies, both directly and indirectly through their advertising agencies.

Approximately 97% of Affle India’s revenue is from their Consumer platform.

  1. B) Enterprise Platform.

Enterprise Platform primarily provides end-to-end solutions for enterprises to enhance their engagement with mobile users.

Strengths of the company:
1. Profitable, low-cost business model built on an asset light, automated and scalable platform

  1. No other listed company in India does the same thing; hence it’s the only company in its peer group

Govt likely to set October deadline for cash-strapped Air India sale

The Centre is planning to liberalise the terms and conditions for the sale of Air India

The build-up to Air India privatisation has taken off in full swing with the Union Budget announcing it as the centrepiece of divestment this year. The government is targeting October as the deadline for announcing the deal.

Not leaving anything to chance after a failed attempt earlier, the government has shortlisted the potential bidders, with the Tata group on top for its interest in aviation. Sources in the know said the government would initiate talks with businesses, including Tatas, shortly for divesting its stake in the national carrier.

The proposed dialogue with potential buyers will coincide with the government procedure of issuing bid documents for expression of interest sometime this month.

“Now that the finance minister has committed in the Budget, we will start approaching prospective bidders,” said a source close to the development. While pointing out that the Tatas will be approached first, he said, “They have a history with aviation and they know how to run an airline.”

“In view of the current macroeconomic parameters, the government would not only reinitiate the process of strategic disinvestment of Air India, but would offer more central public sector enterprises for strategic participation by the private sector,” Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman had said in her Budget speech on Friday.

The government will soon reconstitute the Air India Specific Alternative Mechanism (AISAM), following which a new bid document will be issued. The AISAM is charged with giving approvals at every step of the Air India divestment process, with only the blanket approval given by the Union Cabinet.

In Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first term, the AISAM comprised then Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari, Commerce and Civil Aviation Minister Suresh Prabhu, and Rail Minister Piyush Goyal. With Jaitley and Prabhu no longer a part of Modi’s Cabinet, the AISAM will be reconstituted to include Sitharaman and Civil Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri. Jaitley has headed the AISAM since its formation in July 2017.

The Centre is planning to liberalise the terms and conditions for the sale of the national carrier. The changes would allow a potential buyer to go for a stake sale of the airline immediately after acquiring it. The revised norms would also enable merger or reverse merger of Air India with any existing business of the buyer.

At least 95 per cent stake of Air India will be up for sale, while retaining 5 per cent for the employee stock option. This is the first time the government will relax rules for strategic disinvestment, meant to prevent asset stripping. The relaxation of the rules was proposed by transaction advisor EY as multiple entities during the last sale process in 2017 had objected, saying it restricted the bidder from raising capital from the market and developing synergy with existing business.

The Centre is still pursuing the option of selling the airline’s subsidiaries before the airline itself, in order to deal with the outstanding debt of around Rs 27,000 crore.

At the previous auction, which failed to get any bidder, the government had decided to retain 24 per cent in the airline. That was believed to be one of the primary reasons for not generating any interest from buyers.
