Integrated Passenger Information System Segment

IPIS also provides huge opportunity in Indian Railways and State Transport Buses. IPIS is a computer based electronic system providing audio and visual information to passengers through multiple displays spanning over the entire station and coaches.

The Company has successfully installed this Passenger Information System in many DTC buses in Delhi operating at different routes and has also installed the same in many of the school buses of Delhi Public School, GD Goenka School, PP international school, Dynasty International School, Manav Rachna International School etc.

The Company has also received approval for IPIS with LED Display from Ministry of Railways – Research Design and Standard Organization. Fiem Industries is looking for big business opportunities from Railways, Central & State Government, Metro, Overseas Market etc.

INVESTMENT CONCERNS

Client Concentration Risk

A significant portion of Fiem Industries’s auto component revenue comes from two clients namely Honda and TVS Motors (45% and 26% of revenue). Any slowdown in off take from these two clients can hurt its revenue significantly.

Overdependence on 2 Wheeler OEMs

Fiem Industries gets about 94% of its revenue from 2 wheeler OEMs. Any slowdown in 2 wheeler segment could adversely impact its growth especially as its presence in 4 wheeler segment is small.

Failure to Gain Share in Led Luminaries

Though the underlying drivers for the LED segment continue to remain intact, slower off-take from Government agencies in implementation of LED lighting, competition from global competitors like China, who has become a global manufacturing hub for LED/ electrical components could cap the potential upside from this segment.
