IPO’s Strengths

  • Improved revenues, profitability, capital efficiency, and reduced debt levels in the past three years.
  • Doms manages a diverse range of products in its portfolio.
  • Established a strong brand name and is supported by an extensive network of domestic distributors and international partners.

IPO’s Weaknesses

  • DOMS faces a concentration risk as 30% of its revenue comes from the wooden pencil, a product easily replicated by competitors.
  • The potential for imitation poses a threat to DOMS’s brand, allowing smaller players to use a similar name fraudulently.
  • The absence of formal contracts or exclusive supply agreements exposes DOMS to potential disruptions in its supply chain.
