ESDS Shortcomings

  • The company's debt increased significantly, which affected the interest cost and shrunk the company's net income.
  • The company's interest coverage ratio is falling, which can be a significant issue for its working capital requirements.
  • The company is not able to generate good returns against its assets, and to its shareholders it's ROA and ROE are way lower when compared to its peers  

ESDS Opportunities

  • Comprehensive offering to address govt needs to be named G-SaaS, which can benefit ESDS  software solutions as it is an authorised distributor on GeM empanelled with MeitY.
  • One ample opportunity can be multiple partnerships with a diverse set of stakeholders, including the government, for innovative city projects & metering, STPIs, MNCs, and large tech companies
  • The market for cloud infrastructure is predicted to grow as big data, analytics, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT) become more widely used. This is an ample opportunity for the company to grab on as it 
  • Cloud computing is anticipated to rise due to increased government spending on the National Optical Fibre Network (NOFN), several e-governance portals, and new initiatives like Digital India and Meghraj.
  • Government push for data localisation requirements will provide a shot in the arm to domestic data storage providers, which is a big positive for ESDS Software solutions.

ESDS Threats

  • India reported 1.16 million cyber security cases in 2020, 3X more than in 2019, per government data presented in parliament. Approximately 3k cybersecurity-related issues were reported every day during the year. The threat of data breaches in big data centres is becoming more and more frequent, which the company needs to focus on as it can cost the company with legal actions if this happens.
  • The inability to prevent service disruptions could adversely impact our reputation, business and results of operations. The company has experienced such interruptions in service in the past. For instance, in June, 2020 one of the UPS banks in our Navi Mumbai data center failed, which resulted in downtime for a few of the customers.
  • There’s a significant disruption driven by technology. It is essential for the company to continuously review and upgrade its technology, resources, and processes to mitigate technical obsolescence and catch up with the competition
  • The company will be facing competition from prominent market leaders like AWS, HP, TCS, Google, Wipro, Infosys and HCL tech as they have entered the software services market, so it will be a big challenge for them to out outperform them and hold a significant share in the segment.
