trading in the Equity Shares or regarding the price at which the Equity Shares will be traded after listing.

derived from publicly available information as well as industry publications and sources. Further, unless
otherwise stated, the information in this Red Herring Prospectus pertaining to the theme park industry is derived
from “Indian Amusement Parks Industry Report,” dated January 2015, by ICRA Management Consulting
Services Limited (the “IMaCS Report”).
Industry publications generally state that the information contained in such publications has been obtained from
publicly available documents and sources believed to be reliable but their accuracy and completeness are not
guaranteed and their reliability cannot be assured. Although we believe the industry and market data used in this
Red Herring Prospectus is reliable, it has not been independently verified by us or the GCLMs or any of their
affiliates or advisors. The data used in these sources may have been reclassified by us for the purposes of
presentation. Data from these sources may also not be comparable.
The extent to which the market and industry data used in this Red Herring Prospectus is meaningful depends on
the reader’s familiarity with and understanding of methodologies used in compiling such data. There are no
standard data gathering methodologies in the industry in which our Company operates, and methodologies and
assumptions may vary widely among different industry sources.
15
FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
This Red Herring Prospectus contains certain “forward-looking statements”. These forward-looking statements
generally can be identified by words or phrases such as “aim”, “anticipate”, “believe”, “expect”, “estimate”,
“intend”, “objective”, “plan”, “project”, “will”, “will continue”, “will pursue” or other words or phrases of
similar import. Similarly, statements that describe our strategies, objectives, plans or goals are also forwardlooking statements. All forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us
that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contemplated by the relevant forward-looking
statement.
Actual results may differ materially from those suggested by the forward-looking statements due to risks or
uncertainties associated with the expectations with respect to, but not limited to, regulatory changes pertaining
to the industries in India in which our Company has businesses and its ability to respond to them, its ability to
successfully implement its strategy, its growth and expansion, technological changes, its exposure to market
risks, general economic and political conditions in India which have an impact on its business activities or
investments, the monetary and fiscal policies of India, inflation, deflation, unanticipated turbulence in interest
rates, foreign exchange rates, equity prices or other rates or prices, the performance of the financial markets in
India and globally, changes in domestic laws, regulations and taxes and changes in competition in its industry.
Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from our Company’s expectations include,
but are not limited to, the following:

changes in public and consumer tastes or consumer spending patterns and general economic conditions;

publicity concerning our parks, the theme or the water park industry or the Mumbai - Pune region;

access to funds required to meet our capital requirements;

commencement of the operations of our water park and our hotel;

ability to expand our business into additional geographic markets in India;

availability of adequate, uninterrupted supply of power and water at reasonable cost;

ability to purchase, or contract with third party manufacturers to build rides and attractions for our
parks;

ability of our third party vendors to perform their contractual obligations; and

competition from other parks and entertainment alternatives.
For further discussion on factors that could cause the actual results to differ from the expectations, see the
sections “Risk Factors”, “Our Business” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition
and Results of Operations” on pages 17, 111 and 262, respectively. By their nature, certain market risk
disclosures are only estimates and could be materially different from what actually occurs in the future. As a
result, actual gains or losses could materially differ from those that have been estimated.
We cannot assure investors that the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements will prove to be
correct. Given these uncertainties, investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking
statements and not to regard such statements as a guarantee of future performance.
Forward-looking statements reflect the current views of our Company as of the date of this Red Herring
Prospectus and are not a guarantee of future performance. Neither our Company, our Directors, the Selling
Shareholder, the GCLMs nor any of their respective affiliates have any obligation to update or otherwise revise
any statements reflecting circumstances arising after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of underlying
events, even if the underlying assumptions do not come to fruition. In accordance with SEBI requirements, our
Company and GCLMs will ensure that the investors in India are informed of material developments until the
time of the grant of listing and trading permission by the Stock Exchanges. The Selling Shareholder will ensure
that investors are informed of material developments in relation to statements and undertakings made by the
Selling Shareholder in the Prospectus until the time of the grant of listing and trading permission by the Stock
Exchanges.

SECTION II: RISK FACTORS
An investment in the Equity Shares involves a degree of risk. You should carefully consider all the information
in this Red Herring Prospectus, including the risks and uncertainties described below, before making an
investment in the Equity Shares. If any one or some combination of the following risks were to occur, our
business, results of operations, financial condition and prospects could suffer, and the trading price of the
Equity Shares could decline and you may lose all or part of your investment. Unless specified in the relevant
risk factor below, we are not in a position to quantify the financial implication of any of the risks mentioned
below.
We have described the risks and uncertainties that our management believes are material but the risks set out in
this Red Herring Prospectus may not be exhaustive and additional risks and uncertainties not presently known
to us, or which we currently deem to be immaterial, may arise or may become material in the future. In making
an investment decision, prospective investors must rely on their own examination of us and the terms of the
Issue including the merits and the risks involved.

2.
Our Promoter, Manmohan Shetty has been subjected to inquiries by SEBI and RoC in the past.
On November 7, 2006, SEBI initiated investigations against Manmohan Shetty. The investigations
pertained to the sale of shares of Adlabs Films Limited (now known as Reliance MediaWorks Limited),
a listed company then, undertaken by Manmohan Shetty on April 24, 2006, during the silent period,
under the provisions of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Prohibition of Insider Trading)
Regulations, 1992. Subsequently, a show cause notice dated February 21, 2008 was issued to
Manmohan Shetty in this regard and thereafter, through an order dated June 9, 2010, SEBI imposed a
penalty of ₹ 10 million on Manmohan Shetty. Pursuant to an order dated May 27, 2011 passed by the
SAT, the penalty was reduced to ₹ 2.5 million.
Separately, on March 29, 2007, SEBI initiated adjudication proceedings against Manmohan Shetty in
relation to non-compliance with Regulation 3(3) of the Securities and Exchange Board of India
(Substantial Acquisition of Shares and Takeovers), Regulations, 1997. Subsequently, a show cause
notice dated May 22, 2007 was issued to Manmohan Shetty. Pursuant to an order dated December 13,
2007 passed by SEBI, this matter was settled by way of payment of ₹ 50,000 by Manmohan Shetty.
Further, two compounding orders were passed by the RoC between February 1, 2006 and May 31, 2006
involving Manmohan Shetty in relation to his erstwhile directorship in Adlabs Films Limited, now
Reliance MediaWorks Limited. For details, see the section “Outstanding Litigation and Material
Developments” on pages 280 to 281.
Our Company, our Promoters, our Promoter Group or Group Companies may be subjected to such
inquiries or regulatory proceedings in the future and we cannot assure you that such proceedings will
be settled or decided in our favour. An adverse outcome in any of these proceedings may have an
adverse effect on our business, results of operations and reputation.
3.
Incidents or adverse publicity concerning our parks or the theme or the water park industry
generally could harm our brands or reputation as well as negatively impact our business and results
of operations.
Our brands and our reputation are among our most important assets. Our ability to attract and retain
guests depends, in part, upon the external perceptions of our parks, the quality of our parks and services
and performance of our operations team. The operation of our parks involves the risk of accidents,
contagious, airborne or waterborne diseases and other incidents that may negatively affect guest
satisfaction and the perception of our guests in relation to safety, health and security of our parks,
which could negatively impact our brands and reputation and our business and results of operations.
There was an accident involving our Robinhood rollercoaster on February 5, 2014 in which two guests
sustained injuries. Our Company has initiated arbitration proceedings against I.E. Park, s.r.l Soli
Bumper Cars (“IE Park”) for this ride alleging that the accident occurred on account of manufacturing
18
defects in the ride procured from IE Park and resulted in (a) injuries to some guests; (b) loss of
reputation; (c) loss of business and revenue; and (d) and incurrence of additional expenses. The terms
of reference for the arbitral tribunal were determined on October 31, 2014. For further details, see the
section “Outstanding Litigation and Material Developments” on page 279. We have ceased operating
the Robinhood roller coaster after this accident.
An accident or an injury at our parks, such as the accident involving our Robinhood rollercoaster or at
parks operated by competitors, particularly an accident or an injury involving the safety of guests and
employees, that receives media attention or is otherwise the subject of public discussions, may harm
our brands and reputation, increase our cost of insurance, cause a loss of consumer confidence in our
parks, reduce attendance at our parks and negatively impact our results of operations.
As a result of the negative publicity, governmental authorities may also consider implementing
stringent safety and other regulations in relation to theme parks and water parks. The costs of
complying with, and the imposition of levies, if any, pursuant to, such regulations could be significant,
and failure to comply could result in penalties, suspension of operational permits and can adversely
affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. The considerable expansion in the use
of social media over recent years has compounded the impact of negative publicity. While terms of
most of our contracts with our vendors provide for a two-year defect liability warranty for our rides and
attractions, in the event any accident were to occur on account of any manufacturing defect after the
expiry of such warranty period, we may not be able to recover the losses suffered by us on account of
such accident, including any harm to our brand or reputation. In addition, other types of adverse
publicity concerning our business or the theme or the water park industry generally could harm our
brands, reputation and results of operations.
4.
Our business and results of operations could be adversely affected by changes in public and
consumer tastes or a decline in discretionary consumer spending, consumer confidence and general
economic conditions.
The success of our parks depends substantially on consumer tastes and preferences that can change in
often unpredictable ways. We must adapt to these changes to meet consumer tastes and preferences.
We carry out research and analysis before opening new rides and attractions and often invest
substantial time and resources to gauge the extent to which these new rides and attractions will earn
consumer acceptance. If attendance at our parks were to decline significantly, or if new rides and
attractions at our park do not achieve sufficient consumer acceptance, our revenues may decline.
Accordingly, we may not be able to recoup our capital expenditure in the rides and attractions and
guest loyalty may be adversely affected, any of which could adversely affect our business and results of
operations.
Further, our success depends to a significant extent on discretionary consumer spending, which is
heavily influenced by general economic conditions and the availability of disposable income. The
recent economic slowdown and increase in inflation in India, coupled with high volatility and
uncertainty as to the future global economic landscape, has had and continues to have an adverse effect
on consumers’ disposable income and Indian consumer confidence. Actual or perceived difficult
economic conditions and inflationary periods may adversely impact park attendance figures, the
frequency with which guests choose to visit our parks and guest spending patterns at our parks. Both
attendance and total per capita spending at our parks are key drivers of our revenue and profitability,
and reductions in either can adversely affect our business and results of operations.
5.
Our business is seasonal in nature, and may be affected by weather conditions, school vacations,
public holidays and weekends. Therefore, a sequential quarter-to-quarter comparison of our results
of operations may not be a good indicator of our performance.
The theme and water park industry is seasonal in nature. Our parks could experience volatility in
attendance as a result of school vacations, public holidays, weekends and adverse weather conditions
such as excessive heat and monsoons. We believe that attendance at the theme and water park and
revenues from F&B and retail and merchandise operations is, and will continue to be, higher during
school vacations, public holidays and weekends. In addition, the water park is expected to generate
higher revenues in the summer months. Conversely, we may face a reduction in revenues during the
monsoon months. Further, unfavourable weather conditions such as forecasts of excessive rainfalls or
heat may reduce the attendance at our parks. For these reasons, there may be quarterly fluctuations in
19
results of operations.
In addition, any disruption to our operations because of adverse weather conditions, or otherwise,
during the high attendance periods such as school holidays, may have an adverse effect on our business
and results of operations.
6.
Currently, all our revenues are attributable to Imagica – The Theme Park and Aquamagica at
Adlabs Mumbai. Any event negatively affecting our parks or the Mumbai - Pune region may have an
adverse effect on our business and our results of operations.
Currently, we do not derive revenue from any source other than Imagica – The Theme Park and
Aquamagica at Adlabs Mumbai. Until the commencement of commercial operations of our hotel, our
results of operation will be entirely dependent on our parks. Our results of operations may be adversely
affected if we are not able to operate parks successfully. Further, if Adlabs Mumbai faces any adverse
development, including physical damages such as those resulting from systems failure, and our losses
are not adequately covered by the relevant insurance policies, or if our parks undergo unscheduled
maintenance for a longer period than estimated, our results of operations may be adversely affected.
Since Adlabs Mumbai is situated off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway, we will continue to primarily
cater to visitors from the western region of India. We expect this market to continue to account for the
majority of our revenues in the near future. If this region experiences adverse events, such as a local
economic downturn, civil or political unrest, an adverse effect on transport or other infrastructure, a
natural disaster, a contagious disease outbreak or a terrorist attack, or if the local authorities adopt
regulations that place additional restrictions or burdens on us or on our industry in general, our business
and results of operations may be adversely affected.
7.
We have incurred substantial indebtedness that exposes us to various risks, which may have an
adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
As of December 31, 2014, we had ₹ 10,837.88 million including interest accrued and due (except IAF
CCDs, compulsorily convertible debentures issued to NYLIM Jacob Ballas India Holdings IV and
Jacob Ballas Capital India Private Limited, letters of credit, bank guarantees and unsecured loans from
Manmohan Shetty and Thrill Park) of total amount of indebtedness outstanding. Our level of
indebtedness has important consequences to us, such as:

increasing our vulnerability to general adverse economic, industry and competitive conditions;

limiting our flexibility in planning for, or reacting to, changes in our business and the industry;

affecting our credit rating;

limiting our ability to borrow more money both now and in the future; and

increasing our interest expenditure and adversely affecting our profitability, since almost all of
our debt bears interest at floating rates.
If any of these risks were to materialise, our business and results of operations may be adversely
affected.
8.
Our lenders have substantial rights, including in the event of a breach, to determine how we conduct
our business, which could put us at a competitive disadvantage and could have an adverse effect on
our business, results of operations and financial condition.
Our financing agreements contain provisions that restrict our ability to do, among other things, any of
the following:

creation of security over existing and future assets;

incurrence of additional indebtedness under certain circumstances;

making certain restricted payments, such as the declaration and distribution of dividends,
redemption, retirement, purchase or other acquisition of the share capital of our Company, or
20
repaying the amounts contributed by our Promoters or Directors, unless certain specified
conditions are satisfied;

investing in equity interests or purchasing assets, other than in ordinary course of our
business, unless certain conditions are satisfied;

selling or disposing certain assets, including land;

changing or expanding our scope of business or undertaking new projects;

entering into certain corporate transactions such as reorganisations, amalgamations and
mergers or creating subsidiaries;

diluting our promoter’s shareholding in our Company beyond specified levels;

changing the capital structure of our Company;

modifying constitutional documents; and

incurring capital expenditure, except as permitted.
We must obtain the approval of the lenders under our financing agreements before undertaking these
significant corporate actions. We cannot assure you that the lenders will grant the required approvals in
a timely manner, or at all. The time required to secure consents may hinder us from taking advantage of
a dynamic market environment. In addition to the restrictions listed above, we are required to maintain
certain financial ratios under our financing agreements. These financial ratios and the restrictive
provisions could limit our flexibility to engage in certain business transactions or activities.
Our Company also sought the approval of the Consortium Lenders for extension of the completion date
of Adlabs Mumbai and consequent moratorium in repayment of the outstanding principal amount under
the Common Loan Agreement from April 1, 2014 to April 1, 2015. As of the date of this Red Herring
Prospectus, our Company has received consents from 11 of the 13 Consortium Lenders in this regard,
out of which consents from three Consortium Lenders are subject to similar consents being granted by
all the Consortium Lenders. Pending the receipt of these consents, the moratorium is currently in effect
and our Company has agreed to commence repayment of the outstanding principal amount from April
30, 2015. While the first phase of our hotel comprising 116 keys is expected to be completed by March
2015, the balance 171 keys will become operational in phases thereafter in 2015. Consequently, our
Company may be deemed to be in breach of the Common Loan Agreement. Any such breach that is not
waived by the Consortium Lenders may trigger default provisions under the Common Loan Agreement
and our Consortium Lenders could elect to accelerate all amounts outstanding under the Common Loan
Agreement and declare such amounts immediately due and payable together with accrued and unpaid
interest. If such amounts are accelerated, and we are unable to repay the amounts due, such lender may
enforce their respective security interests in our assets, which may have an adverse effect on our
business, liquidity and financial condition.
Additionally, our financing agreements are secured by our movable, immovable or intangible assets
(whether existing or future) and by pledge of Equity Shares held by one of our Promoters, Thrill Park.
Such financing agreements enable the lenders to cancel any outstanding commitments, accelerate the
repayment, exercise cross default provisions and enforce their security interests on the occurrence of
events of default such as a breach of financial covenants, failure to obtain the proper consents, failure
to perfect security as specified and such other covenants that are not cured. It is possible that we would
not have sufficient funds upon such an acceleration of our financial obligations to pay the principal
amount and interest in full. If we are forced to issue equity to the lenders, your ownership interest in
our Company will be diluted.
It is also possible that future financing agreements may contain similar or more onerous covenants and
may also result in higher interest cost. Further, under our financing agreements, in the event our
Company has sufficient cash flows to service the loans, the lenders are entitled to advance the loan
repayment dates, in terms of our financing agreements.
Further, any material breach of the project agreements, such as agreements for installation of rides and
21
attractions and construction contracts, by us or our counter-parties that is not waived by the lenders or
is otherwise not cured may also trigger default provisions under our financing agreements.
If any of these events were to occur, our business, results of operations and financial condition may be
adversely affected.
9.
Our Promoter has pledged and may continue to pledge a portion of its equity shareholding in our
Company in favour of our lenders, who may exercise their rights under the respective financing
agreements in events of default.
One of our Promoters, Thrill Park has pledged and may continue to pledge a certain percentage of a
portion of its equity shareholding in our Company, as security for the loans provided by such lenders to
us. As of the date of this Red Herring Prospectus, Thrill Park has pledged 23,394,782 Equity Shares
with the Consortium Lenders as collateral security under the Common Loan Agreement. Any default
on our part under the financing documents may result in the lenders enforcing their securities interests
including by invoking the respective pledges. Upon invocation of their pledges, the lenders may choose
to sell the Equity Shares in the open market, thereby diluting the shareholding of our Promoter. Further,
the sale of such Equity Shares, or the perception that such sales may occur, may adversely affect the
trading price of the Equity Shares.
10.
We have substantial capital requirements and may not be able to raise the additional funds required
to meet these requirements, which could have an adverse effect on our business, results of
operations and prospects.
We operate in a capital-intensive industry with relatively long gestation periods. The most critical
factor for the success of a theme and water park is the uniqueness and novelty of their rides and
attractions. Accordingly, we are required to make capital investments on a regular basis to improve the
existing rides and attractions and to introduce new theme and water park rides and attractions. Our
financing requirements are primarily for the development cost of rides and other attractions and
working capital. We also have significant capital expenditure plans in the near future, including
expanding our portfolio of parks by developing a theme park in Hyderabad and adding three to four
rides and attractions over the next five years, including one major ride or attraction every two years at
our parks. The actual amount and timing of our future capital requirements may differ from our
estimates as a result of, among other things, the availability of land, interest rates, future cash flows
being less than anticipated, unforeseen delays or cost overruns, unanticipated expenses, general
economic conditions, regulatory and technological changes, market developments and new
opportunities in the industry.
The financing required for such investments may not be available to us on acceptable terms or at all
and we may be restricted by the terms and conditions of our existing or future financing agreements. If
we decide to raise additional funds through the incurrence of debt, our interest obligations will
increase, which could significantly affect financial measures such as our earnings per share (“EPS”). If
our Company does raise additional funds through the issuance of equity, your ownership interest in our
Company will be diluted. Our ability to finance our capital expenditure plans is also subject to a
number of risks, contingencies and other factors, some of which are beyond our control, including
borrowing or lending restrictions under applicable laws, any restrictions on the amount of dividend
payable and general economic and capital markets conditions. Further, since we recently commenced
operations at Adlabs Mumbai, we cannot assure you that our operations will be able to generate cash
flows sufficient to cover such costs. Any inability to obtain sufficient financing could result in the
delay or abandonment of our development and expansion plans or the operation of existing parks. As a
result, if adequate capital is not available, there could be an adverse effect on our business, results of
operations and prospects.
11.
Our financing agreements entail interest at variable rates and any increases in interest rates may
adversely affect our results of operations.
We are susceptible to changes in interest rates and the risks arising therefrom. Our financing
agreements entail interest at variable rates with a provision for the periodic reset of interest rates.
Further, under our financing agreements the lenders are entitled to change the applicable rate of interest
depending upon the policies of the Reserve Bank of India and in the event of an adverse change in our
Company’s credit risk rating. See the section “Financial Indebtedness” on page 256 for a description of
22
interest payable under our financing agreements. Historically, we have not entered into interest rate
hedging transactions in connection with such indebtedness. Further, in recent years, the Government of
India has taken measures to control inflation, which have included tightening the monetary policy by
raising interest rates. As such, any increase in interest rates may have an adverse effect on our business
and results of operations.
12.
We rely on the value of our brand, and any failure to maintain, protect, enhance awareness of or
monetize our brand could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
We believe continued investment in our brands,
and
, is critical to expanding our
business. We have invested significantly, and will continue to invest, in marketing and advertising
programs to preserve and enhance our brand, particularly outside of Mumbai and internationally. As
part of our business strategy, we intend to leverage our brand and intellectual property, including
through sponsorship and other marketing partnerships with third parties, which may not be successful.
If we are unable to successfully and cost effectively promote or leverage our brand, and protect the
goodwill currently associated with our brand, our ability to compete and increase the number of visitors
at the theme park will be adversely affected.
13.
A large portion of our guests are school children, particularly children who visit our parks, as part
of school groups. Catering to this category of guests entails different risks, which could adversely
affect our business, reputation and results of operations.
During school days, our parks often host several thousand school children as part of visiting school
trips. Schools purchase tickets for groups on a bulk and discounted basis. Moreover, in our experience
school children are likely to spend less on F&B and retail and merchandise during their visit. As a
result, school children, when compared to adults on a per guest basis, generate less revenue from sale
of admission ticket as well as sales of F&B and retail and merchandise.
Moreover, the presence of a large number of children at our parks poses greater health and safety risks.
Although school children are mostly accompanied by teachers and school employees, and we believe
our employees and our security team are particularly trained to manage children, incidents entailing
injury, kidnapping or fatality involving a child at our parks could adversely affect our business,
reputation and results of operations.
14.
If we are unable to commence operations of our hotel as expected, our results of operations could be
adversely affected.
Adlabs Mumbai will also include a family hotel, which is currently under development with the first
phase comprising 116 keys expected to be completed by March 2015, with the balance 171 keys
becoming operational in phases thereafter in 2015. This scheduled completion target is an estimate and
may be subject to delays as a result of, among other things, disputes with workers, force majeure
events, delays in supply of materials and inability in obtaining government approvals. We cannot
assure you that the development of our hotel will be completed within the scheduled timeframe, or at
all. We cannot assure you that all potential liabilities that may arise from delays or shortfalls in
performance, will be covered under the agreements entered into with our contractors and suppliers or
that the damages that may be claimed from such contractors and suppliers, as applicable, shall be
adequate to cover any loss of profits resulting from such delays, shortfalls or disruptions. In addition,
failure to complete these developments according to the original specifications or schedule, if at all,
may result in our returns on investments being lower than originally expected and may trigger default
provisions under our Company’s financing agreements. Also, see the section “Risk Factors – Our
lenders have substantial rights, including in the event of a breach, to determine how we conduct our
business, which could put us at a competitive disadvantage and could have an adverse effect on our
business, results of operations and financial condition.” on page 20.
15.
Ineffectiveness of our marketing and advertising campaign may adversely affect our business and
results of operations.
Our revenues are influenced by our marketing and advertising campaigns. We rely to a large extent on
our Promoters’ and senior management’s experience in defining our marketing and advertising
programmes. We also rely on our sales promotion agents, who are engaged to manage our sales and
23
marketing activities. If our marketing and advertising campaigns are unsuccessful, we may fail to
attract guests to our parks, which may have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
In addition, increased spending by our competitors on advertising and promotion or an increase in the
cost of television or radio advertising could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
Moreover, a material decrease in our advertising and marketing budget or an ineffective advertising
campaign as compared to that of our competitors may also adversely affect our business and results of
operations.
16.
We may experience difficulties in expanding our business into additional geographic markets in
India, including Hyderabad, which may adversely affect our business prospects, financial condition
and results of operations.
We intend to set up integrated holiday destinations in other geographic locations, either through parks
owned and operated by us or through a partnership or a franchise model. We have identified Hyderabad
as a new location to develop a new theme park. Further, we have also entered into a memorandum of
understanding dated July 1, 2013 for the purpose of submitting bids to set up tourism-related projects in
Gujarat. We may face additional challenges such as increased competition, different culture, regulatory
regimes, business practices, customs, behaviour and preferences from the Mumbai – Pune region, and
our current experience may not be applicable to such new locations. In addition, as we enter new
markets and geographical areas, we are likely to compete with local amusement parks who have an
established local presence, are more familiar with local regulations, business practices and customs,
have stronger relationships with local contractors, suppliers, relevant government authorities or are in a
stronger financial position than us, all of which may give them a competitive advantage over us. We
will also be exposed to various additional difficulties such as, obtaining necessary governmental
approvals under unfamiliar regulatory regimes, acquiring land for such project, identifying and
collaborating with local suppliers with whom we may have no previous working relationship, attracting
potential guests in a market in which we do not have significant experience or visibility, being
susceptible to local taxation in additional geographical areas of India, and adapting our marketing
strategy and operations to suit different regions of India. Our inability to successfully expand our
presence in other geographical areas may adversely affect our business, financial condition and results
of operations.
In December 2012, one of our promoters, Thrill Park, entered into a shareholders’ agreement (“JV
Agreement”) with Royale Luxury Private Limited for the development of a theme park in Hyderabad.
Thrill Park has also agreed to assign its rights to develop this theme park under the JV Agreement to
our Company. We are currently in the process of finalising our development plan for the proposed
theme park in Hyderabad. For details of our proposed development plan and the collaboration
arrangements, see the section “Business – Proposed Developments” on page 130. The implementation
of this new theme park may be subject to various potential problems and uncertainties, including any
inability to enter into definitive agreements or differences with our partners, the overall economic and
political conditions, delays in delivery of supplies, delays in completion, unavailability of financing for
the project, cost overruns, shortages in material or labour, delayed and improper performance by our
third party contractors, defects in design or construction, delays in obtaining equipment and rides,
delays in obtaining regulatory and lender approvals and unavailability of power and water. Further,
under the JV Agreement, in the event certain specified milestones such as receipt of critical project
approvals and capitalisation of the joint venture company are not completed within the specified
period, the JV Agreement may be terminated. Additionally, actual capital expenditures for this project
may exceed our budgets because of various factors beyond our control. If our actual capital
expenditures significantly exceed our budgets, we may not be able to achieve the intended economic
benefits from such projects. We cannot assure you that we will be able to implement our expansion
plans for our new theme park in Hyderabad in a timely and cost-efficient manner, or at all, and any
failure to do so would adversely affect our business, prospects and results of operations.
17.
We depend substantially on the delivery of an adequate, uninterrupted supply of power and water at
reasonable cost. Prolonged disruption of these services during our operational hours may have an
adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
To function effectively, all of the rides and attractions at Imagica – The Theme Park as well as several
of our rides at our water park depend on an adequate, uninterrupted supply of power. Further, all of the
rides at our water park depend on an adequate, uninterrupted supply of clean water, at a reasonable
24
cost. For power, we rely on regional and transmission grids operated by state electricity providers. We
have entered into an electricity supply agreement with Maharashtra State Electricity Distribution
Company Limited for the supply of electricity for Adlabs Mumbai, which is valid up to March 2015. If
we are unable to renew such agreement upon its expiry on commercially acceptable terms or at all, our
business and results of operations will be adversely affected. Further, while we do not have a back up
supply for our rides and attractions, we utilise diesel generators as back up for the utilities, fire-fighting
equipment and our F&B outlets. For water, we rely on the local water supply and are permitted to draw
water from the nearby reservoir up to a specified amount. We have also constructed a reservoir to
harvest rainwater. For details, see the section “Business – Utilities” on page 131.
Though we derive power from two different local transmission grids, the supply of power from these
grids could be interrupted from time to time, which would disrupt the operation of rides and attractions
in our parks. If there is an interruption in the supply of power or water, we may be required to suspend
operations of all of the rides and attractions at the parks, and we may be required to offer refunds to our
guests. We had to face one instance of a power supply interruption at both grids after which we
refunded tickets for some of our guests.
Moreover, power and water account for 12.7% of our total operating costs for the six months ended
September 30, 2014. The costs of power and water depend on a number of factors that are beyond of
our control, such as weather patterns, connectivity, existing demand and the extent of economic
activity. If the price of power or water increases, our operating costs will increase. While we believe
that our current supply of power and water from third parties is sufficient to meet our existing
requirements, we cannot assure you that we will continue to have an adequate, uninterrupted supply of
power and water at reasonable cost in the future, particularly as we continue to build attractions at the
theme park and the water park and are in the process of launching the hotel. If we are unable to pass on
any increase in the cost of power or water to our guests, our profitability may be adversely affected.
Any significant increase in the cost of, coupled with our inability to find an adequate cost-effective
replacement for our sources for, power or water could cause interruptions in the attractions at our
parks.
The interruptions to the supply of power and water may adversely affect our reputation, brand, business
and results of operations.
18.
We may be unable to purchase, or contract with third-party manufacturers to build, rides and
attractions for our parks, which could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
Our success depends on our ability to improve our existing rides and attractions and introduce new
ones. We depend on third parties for the improvement, development, supply and training of our staff
for maintenance of such rides and attractions. We may be unable to purchase, or contract with third
parties to continue to build high quality rides and attractions and to continue to train employees to
service and maintain existing or new rides at competitive prices, or to provide replacement parts needed
to maintain the operation of such rides. In addition, if our third party suppliers’ financial condition
deteriorates or they go out of business, we may not be able to obtain the full benefit of the manufacturer
warranties or indemnities typically contained in our contracts or may need to incur greater costs for the
maintenance, repair, replacement or insurance of our assets, which could adversely affect our business
and results of operations.
19.
We depend on third-party vendors for services, any disruption, deficiency in service or increase in
cost of which could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
We depend on third-party vendors and suppliers for a number of services and products, including
beverages and retail products, live entertainment performances, security and maintenance. We expect
our reliance on these third-party vendors to continue to increase as we launch new attractions in our
parks and launch our hotel and the number of visitors to our parks continues to increase. These third
parties may experience disruptions, provide lower quality service or increase the prices of their
products or services for a number of reasons that are beyond our control. For example, we are involved
in arbitration proceedings with our vendor for the Robinhood ride in relation to the accident at Imagica
– The Theme Park, which we believe was caused due to a manufacturing defect in the ride. For further
details, see the section “Outstanding Litigation and Material Developments” on page 279. We have
also entered into agreements with third parties for the development of a snow park and an adventurecourse tower. If our partners are not able to complete these developments in a timely and cost-efficient
25
manner, or at all, our business, results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected.
As a result, we cannot be certain that we will continue to receive satisfactory services or products on
acceptable terms or at all. Should we experience a disruption in the supply, or quality, of these services
or products, or if such contracts for services expire, we may not be able to find a replacement or renew
our contracts, as the case may be, in a timely fashion, on reasonable terms or at all, which could require
us to discontinue aspects of the experience at our parks or incur additional costs in developing those
ourselves. This may adversely affect our business and results of operations.
20.
Our insurance coverage may not be adequate to cover all possible losses that we could suffer.
We seek to maintain comprehensive insurance coverage at commercially reasonable rates. Although we
maintain various safety and loss prevention cover and carry property and casualty insurance to cover
certain risks that we believe to be consistent with industry norms, our insurance policies do not cover
all types of losses and liabilities and are subject to exclusions and deductibles. We cannot assure you
that our insurance will be sufficient to cover the full extent of all losses or liabilities for which we are
insured, and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to renew our current insurance policies on
favourable terms, or at all. In the event we fail to renew the insurance policies within the prescribed
time period, or at all, we may face significant uncovered losses. In addition, if we or other park
operators sustain significant losses or make significant insurance claims or any accidents were to occur
at our parks, then our ability to obtain future insurance coverage at commercially reasonable rates
could be adversely affected.
Our business and assets, including our parks, hotel and office premises, could suffer damage from fire,
such as the fire break-out in the premises where our corporate office is located in July 2014, accidents,
such as the accident involving our Robinhood rollercoaster, natural calamities, negligence on the part
of our operations and maintenance staff or other causes including prolonged use over a period of time.
In July 2014, there was a fire in the premises in which our corporate office is located and we are
currently operating from a temporary office. Such incidents could result in losses, which may not be
fully covered by insurance.
If we suffer a loss that is not covered by insurance or exceeds our insurance coverage, our business,
financial condition and results of operations may be adversely affected.
21.
We may not be successful in implementing our business strategies, which could adversely affect our
business, and results of operations and prospects.
The success of our business will depend on our ability to effectively implement our strategies. We plan
to continue to develop Adlabs Mumbai as an integrated holiday destination, focus on increasing the
number of guests hosted at Adlabs Mumbai, diversify our revenue streams, achieve cost optimisation
and increase profitability. In implementing these strategies, we face a number of risks, including:

we may not be able to develop and construct rides, attractions, shows and product offerings
successfully within Adlabs Mumbai to attract more guests;

we may not be able to source funds needed to operate an expanded business, set up new theme
parks and meet our future debt service obligations and guarantees;

we could incur time or cost overruns;

our F&B and retail operations and advertising and intellectual property strategy may not
generate sufficient revenue; and

our cost rationalisation measures may not be successful.
We expect our strategies to place significant demands on our management and other resources and
require us to continue to develop and improve our operational, financial and other internal controls. We
may also need to alter our business strategies on an ongoing basis to manage our growth and compete
effectively with other amusement parks. Our inability to manage our business and implement our
strategies could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
22.
The high fixed cost structure of operations can result in significantly lower margins if our revenues
26
decline, which could adversely affect our results of operations.
A large portion of our expenses are relatively fixed because the cost of full-time employees, operations
and maintenance costs, interest costs, security and insurance do not vary significantly with attendance
at our parks. These fixed costs may increase at a greater rate than our revenues and we may not be able
to reduce such costs at the same rate as the declining revenues. These effects could be particularly
pronounced during periods of economic contraction, bad weather or epidemics. If cost-cutting efforts
prove to be insufficient to offset any decline in revenues or are impracticable, we could experience a
decline in margins, profitability and reduced or negative cash flows.
23.
We have a limited operating history, which may make it difficult for you to evaluate our past
performance and future prospects.
We have a limited operating history. While Imagica – The Theme Park became fully operational on
November 1, 2013, for a period of approximately six months prior to November 1, 2013, some of the
rides and attractions were open to the public. Further, our water park became fully operational on
October 1, 2014. Our limited operating history may adversely affect our ability to implement our
growth strategies, and may make it difficult for you to evaluate our past performance and future
prospects in connection with any investment in the Equity Shares. Prospective investors should
accordingly consider our future prospects in light of the risks and the challenges encountered by a
company with a limited operating history.
Further, our hotel, located adjacent to our parks, is currently under construction and the first phase of
our hotel comprising 116 keys is expected to be completed by March 2015, with the balance 171 keys
becoming operational in phases thereafter in 2015. We have no operating experience in the hotel
industry. The performance and quality of our services at our hotel will be critical to the success of our
hotel. These factors will depend significantly on the effectiveness and quality of our facilities, standard
operating procedures, our quality control systems, which in turn, depend on the skills and experience of
our management.
We cannot assure you that we will be able to successfully meet the challenges, uncertainties, costs and
difficulties encountered by us or that we will attain our objectives successfully. Our limited operating
history as a company makes it difficult to predict our future prospects and financial performance.
24.
Our inability to compete effectively against other amusement parks and entertainment alternatives
could adversely affect our business and results of operations
We face competition from other amusement and water parks and other entertainment alternatives on a
number of metrics, including cost, ease of use, proximity to large population centres and quality of
entertainment offered. Mumbai is home to another park, Essel World, which includes an amusement
park and a water park.
In addition to competing with other parks, our parks compete with other types of recreational venues
and entertainment venues, including movies, sports attractions and vacation travel. We cannot assure
you that we will be able to successfully differentiate ourselves from these entertainment alternatives or
that consumers will consider our entertainment offerings to be more appealing than those of our
competitors. The increasing availability and quality of technology-based entertainment has provided
families with a wider selection of entertainment alternatives in their homes, including home based
entertainment units, in-home and online gaming, as well as on-demand streaming video and related
access to various forms of entertainment. Our inability to compete effectively against other parks and
these entertainment alternatives could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
25.
Any failure, disruption or manipulation of our information technology systems could adversely
affect our business and operations.
We rely on our information technology systems to provide us with connectivity across our business
functions and connectivity with our vendors through our software, hardware and network systems. Our
business processes are information technology enabled, and any failure in our information technology
systems or loss of connectivity or any loss of data arising from such failure could disrupt our ability to
track, record and analyse work in progress, monitor maintenance activities or share data with our
vendors, process financial information, manage creditors/debtors or engage in normal business
27
activities, which could have an adverse effect on our business and operations. Further, any failure,
disruption or manipulation of our information technology system could disrupt our ability to track,
record and analyse sales of tickets, which could have an adverse effect on our business and operations.
26.
Cyber security risks and the failure to maintain the integrity of internal or guest data could expose
us to data loss and liability and our reputation could be significantly harmed.
We collect and retain large volumes of internal and guest data, including credit card numbers and other
personally identifiable information, for business purposes, including for transactional or target
marketing and promotional purposes, and our various information technology systems enter, process,
summarise and report such data. We also maintain personally identifiable information about our
employees. The integrity and protection of our guest, employee and Company data is critical to our
business and our guests and employees have a high expectation that we will adequately protect their
personal information. The regulatory environment, as well as the requirements imposed on us by the
credit card industry, governing information, applicable security and privacy laws is increasingly
demanding and may continue to evolve. Complying with applicable security and privacy regulations
could adversely affect our ability to market the parks and services to our guests, and such compliance,
as well as protecting our guests from consumer fraud, could increase our operating costs. Furthermore,
a penetrated or compromised data system or the intentional, inadvertent or negligent release or
disclosure of data could result in theft, loss, fraudulent or unlawful use of guest, employee or Company
data which could harm our reputation, disrupt our operations or result in remedial and other costs, fines
and litigation.
27.
Any failure to obtain, renew and maintain requisite statutory and regulatory permits, licenses and
approvals for our operations from time to time may adversely affect our business.
We require various statutory and regulatory permits, licenses and approvals to carry out our business
and operations including (i) permission for the operation of rides from various authorities such as (a)
the electricity department, (b) the relevant district collector and (c) no objection certificates (“NOCs”)
for our rides and attractions from the relevant public works division (“PWD NOCs”) ; (ii) licenses for
operating restaurants and F&B outlets from the relevant Food and Drug administration authorities; (iii)
licenses for serving liquor at the restaurants from the relevant district collector (“Liquor Licenses”);
(iv) environmental clearances and consents; and (v) clearances from the Directorate of Maharashtra
Fire Services. For details, see the section “Government Approvals” on page 283. A majority of these
approvals are granted for a limited duration and require renewal. Further, while we have applied for
some of these approvals, we cannot assure you that such approvals will be issued or granted to us in a
timely manner, or at all. For example, the consent to operate our theme park and water park issued by
the MPCB was valid until November 30, 2014. Whilst we have applied for such renewal on November
26, 2014, we are yet to receive the renewed consent as on the date of this Red Herring Prospectus. If
we do not receive these approvals or are not able to renew the approvals in a timely manner, then our
business and operations may be adversely affected. Moreover, any revocation of the approvals by the
relevant regulatory authority would impair the operations of Adlabs Mumbai and consequently have an
adverse effect on our business.
The approvals mentioned above are subject to numerous conditions and we cannot assure you that
these would not be suspended or revoked in the event of non-compliance or alleged non-compliance
with any terms or conditions thereof, or pursuant to any regulatory action. If there is any failure by us
to comply with the applicable regulations or if the regulations governing our business are amended, we
may incur increased costs, be subject to penalties, have our approvals and permits revoked or suffer a
disruption in our activities, any of which could adversely affect our business.
In addition, Walkwater Properties Private Limited (“Walkwater Properties”), the wholly-owned
subsidiary of our Company, has applied to the Government of Maharashtra for an approval to develop a
township project on a parcel of land measuring 170 acres adjacent to Adlabs Mumbai along with
certain adjoining parcels of land owned by third parties. Walkwater Properties intends to enter into the
necessary agreements with other parties upon the receipt of the necessary approvals. Walkwater
Properties may not be able to obtain the required approvals or may not be able to enter into definitive
agreements with other parties on acceptable terms, or at all. See also “Risk Factors – The township
project proposed on the AEL Surplus Land may not materialise if the required approvals are not
received for transfer of AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties” and “Risk Factors – Our Company
may not be able to transfer a portion of the AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties if the required
28
approvals are not received” on pages 29 to 30.
28.
Our inability to protect or use our intellectual property rights, some of which we license from our
Promoter and third parties, may adversely affect our business.
We have made applications for the registration of the “Adlabs Imagica!”, the
and
logos as
trademarks, which may not be granted in a timely manner, or at all. We may not be able to prevent
infringement of our trademark and a passing off action may not provide sufficient protection until such
time that this registration is granted.
Further, we license the ‘Adlabs’ trademark and logo on a non-exclusive basis from our Promoter,
Manmohan Shetty, pursuant to a license agreement that expires on January 13, 2025. Further, on the
expiry of the term of the license agreement or the expiry of the initial period of registration of the
‘Adlabs’ trademark and logo, we would be at risk of losing our rights to the ‘Adlabs’ trademark and
logo, unless the term of license is extended or the registration of the ‘Adlabs’ trademark and logo is
renewed by our Promoter, Manmohan Shetty, upon its expiry, as applicable. Moreover, if our
Promoter, Manmohan Shetty decides to sell the trademark, we cannot assure you that we will be able to
purchase, or secure a license with the new owner for the trademark or logo on acceptable terms or at
all.
Moreover, the use of our brand name or logo by third parties could adversely affect our reputation,
which could in turn adversely affect our financial performance and the market price of the Equity
Shares. Notwithstanding the precautions we take to protect our intellectual property rights, it is possible
that third parties may copy or otherwise infringe on our rights, which may have an adverse effect on
our business and results of operations.
While we take care to ensure that we comply with the intellectual property rights of others, we cannot
determine with certainty whether we are infringing any existing third-party intellectual property rights,
which may force us to alter our offerings. We may also be susceptible to claims from third parties
asserting infringement and other related claims. If such claims are raised, those claims could result in
costly litigation, divert management’s attention and resources, subject us to significant liabilities and
require us to enter into potentially expensive royalty or licensing agreements or to cease certain
offerings. Furthermore, necessary licenses may not be available to us on satisfactory terms, if at all.
Any of the foregoing could adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.
29.
The township project proposed on the AEL Surplus Land may not materialise if the required
approvals are not received for transfer of AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties.
As disclosed in the section “Our Business”, our Company owns approximately 170 acres of surplus
land (the “AEL Surplus Land”). Our Company has entered into a deed of conveyance dated September
29, 2014 pursuant to which our Company has transferred 137.33 acres of the AEL Surplus Land to
Walkwater Properties, a wholly owned subsidiary of our Company, subject to the existing mortgage in
favour of the security trustee for the Consortium Loan and the rights of the Consortium Lenders in
respect of the same (the “Conveyance”). Our Company is awaiting the consents required from the
Consortium Lenders for the conclusion of this transaction. The consideration for this conveyance of
land is ₹ 1,057.57 million which is payable to our Company by Walkwater Properties by issuance of
fresh equity shares of Walkwater Properties to our Company.
Subsequent to the above mentioned Conveyance, our Company undertook the Pre-IPO Placement and
received FDI of an aggregate amount of ₹ 500.00 million on October 10, 2014 from NYLIM Jacob
Ballas India Holdings IV and Jacob Ballas Capital India Private Limited.
If our Company does not receive consents required for the Conveyance from all the Consortium
Lenders or if any other condition of the Conveyance is not fulfilled, the Conveyance can be set aside. If
the Conveyance is set aside, as our Company has received FDI in the Pre-IPO Placement, our
Company may not be able to again convey the AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties or any other
entity without prior approval of FIPB and the proposed township project on the AEL Surplus Land may
not take place. Accordingly, our Company can neither undertake nor participate in the development of
AEL Surplus Land without obtaining the requisite regulatory and third-party approvals.
29
30.
Our Company may not be able to transfer a portion of the AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater
Properties if the required approvals are not received.
Our Company has entered into an Agreement to Sell dated November 7, 2014 (the “ATS”) pursuant to
which our Company proposes to transfer 32.58 acres of the AEL Surplus Land (the “Balance Land”) to
Walkwater Properties, a wholly owned subsidiary of our Company, subject to the existing mortgage in
favour of the security trustee for the Consortium Loan and the rights of the Consortium Lenders in
respect of the same. Our Company is awaiting the consents required from the Consortium Lenders for
such transfer.
As the Balance Land was acquired by our Company under the permission of the Directorate of
Industries, Government of Maharashtra (“DIC”) issued under section 63-1A of the Bombay Tenancy
and Agricultural Lands Act, 1948, our Company requires prior approval of DIC and/or district
administration for such transfer.
Further, as our Company has undertaken the Pre-IPO Placement prior to entering into the ATS, our
Company will require approval from FIPB before transferring the Balance Land to Walkwater
Properties.
If our Company does not receive all the consents and approvals required for the transfer of the Balance
Land, our Company may not be able to transfer the Balance Land to Walkwater Properties and the
Balance Land will not be available for the proposed township project by Walkwater Properties.
Accordingly, our Company can neither undertake nor participate in the development of Balance Land
without obtaining the requisite regulatory and third-party approvals.
31.
We have incurred a loss for the six months ended September 30, 2014 and cannot assure you that we
will not continue to incur losses in the future, which may adversely affect our ability to carry out our
business.
We have incurred a loss after tax for the six months ended September 30, 2014 of ₹ 535.29 million. We
cannot assure you that we will not continue to incur losses in the future, which may adversely affect
our ability to carry out our business.

We had negative net cash flows from operating and investing activities in the past and may continue

We commenced operations during the financial year 2014 and our negative cash flows from operations
for these periods were primarily on account of adjustments as a result of working capital changes.
Negative net cash flows from investing activities for these periods were primarily attributable to the
purchase of fixed assets and interest expense. For further details in relation to the net cash flows in the
preceding periods, see the sections “Consolidated Financial Statements”, “Standalone Financial
Statements” and “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of
Operations” on pages 170, 208 and 262, respectively. We cannot assure you that our net cash flow will
be positive in the future.

33.
We depend substantially on the services of members of our senior management and our business
may be adversely affected if we are unable to retain them.
We depend substantially on the services of members of our senior management, including our
Managing Director, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, to develop and execute the
vision, and oversee the operations and continued growth, of our parks. Our continued growth and guest
experience will also continue to depend substantially on the creative inspiration and experience drawn
on by our management team. Competition for individuals to replace any of our senior management is
intense, and we may not be able to recruit and retain suitable replacements in a timely manner or at all.
We do not maintain key man insurance for any of our senior management personnel.
The loss of services of any of our senior management team could adversely affect our ability to
implement our strategic initiatives and our business and results of operations.
34.
We depend on motivated, skilled employees to develop, operate and maintain Adlabs Mumbai, our
inability to continue to train and retain which could adversely affect our business and results of
operations.
Our operations depend substantially on retaining a base of motivated, skilled employees to develop,
operate and maintain the attractions at Adlabs Mumbai. India has a shortage of employees trained to
operate and maintain sophisticated attractions at theme parks and water parks. Prior to commencing
operations, our vendors carried out training for our employees to operate and maintain such rides and
attractions. In addition, we carry out regular training for our personnel at our theme and water parks to
deliver a consistent and high quality experience to our guests. We also depend substantially on the
motivation and enthusiasm of our employees to create the park experience. If we are unable to retain,
and as we continue to expand, hire and train, motivated, skilled employees, our labour costs may
increase, we may face staff shortages or the quality of our park experience could be adversely affected.
Such occurrence could also result in decreased operational efficiency, productivity and an increase in
recruitment and training costs thereby adversely affecting our growth, business and results of
operations.
Moreover, while we believe we enjoy a good relationship, and have not experienced any incidents,
with our employees, any labour disputes or wide-scale work stoppages by our employees could
adversely affect our business and results of operations.
35.
We have in the past entered into related party transactions and may continue to do so in the future,
which may potentially involve conflicts of interest with the equity shareholders.
We have entered into various transactions with related parties. For example, as of September 30, 2014,
unsecured loans of ₹ 70 million and ₹ 450 million provided by our Promoters, Thrill Park and
Manmohan Shetty, respectively, are outstanding. Since the parties have not entered into any definitive
agreements in respect of these loans, these loans may be repayable on demand. If these loans are
accelerated, our results of operations and financial condition may be adversely affected. Further, we
have also entered into consultancy agreements with Aarti Shetty and Pooja Deora. While we believe
that all such transactions have been conducted on an arm’s length basis and contain commercially
reasonable terms, we cannot assure you that we could not have achieved more favourable terms had
such transactions been entered into with unrelated parties. It is likely that we may enter into related
party transactions in the future. Such related party transactions may potentially involve conflicts of
interest. For details on our related party transactions, see the sections “Consolidated Financial
Statements – Statement of Related Party Transactions” and “Standalone Financial Statements –
Statement of Related Party Transactions” on pages 206 and 253, respectively. We cannot assure you
that such transactions, individually or in the aggregate, will always be in the best interests of our
minority shareholders and will not have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
36.
Our Promoter will continue to be our largest shareholder and have the right to approve certain
corporate actions, which may potentially involve conflicts of interest with the equity shareholders.
Following the completion of the Issue, Manmohan Shetty, himself and through his wholly owned
company, will continue to hold 56.84% of our outstanding Equity Shares, and therefore will have the
ability to significantly influence our operations. This will include the ability to appoint Directors to our
Board and the right to approve significant actions at Board and at shareholders’ meetings, including the
31
issue of Equity Shares and dividend payments, business plans, mergers and acquisitions, any
consolidation or joint venture arrangements, any amendment to our Memorandum and Articles of
Association, and any assignment or transfer of our interest in any of our licenses. We cannot assure you
that Manmohan Shetty will not have conflicts of interest with other shareholders or with our Company.
Any such conflict may adversely affect our ability to execute our business strategy or to operate our
business.
37.
Our Promoters, Directors and Key Management Personnel may have interests in us other than
reimbursement of expenses incurred, normal employee remuneration or benefits payable under the
terms of their agreements with us, which may potentially involve conflict of interests with our
Shareholders.
Our Promoter and Director, Manmohan Shetty is interested in us to the extent of the transactions
entered into by him and his relatives with our Company. Such transactions include (a) the license
agreement for the use of the trademark “Adlabs” and leave and license agreements for the use of our
corporate office premises and car parking lots, entered into with Manmohan Shetty; and (b)
consultancy agreements entered into with Aarti Shetty and Pooja Deora. In addition, our Directors and
Key Management Personnel are also interested in us to the extent of their shareholding and dividend
entitlement. For further information, see the sections “Our Management” on pages 149, 150 and 156
and “Our Promoters and Promoter Group” on page 160. For details in relation to the related party
transactions entered into by our Company, see the section “Related Party Transactions” on page 168.
This may potentially involve conflict of interest with our Shareholders.
38.
We may be held liable for the payment of wages to the contract labourers we engage in our
operations.
In order to retain flexibility and control costs, we appoint independent contractors who, in turn, engage
on-site contract labour to perform certain operations, including providing security. We determine the
number of contract labourers required depending on the requirement of our business from time to time.
Although we do not engage these labourers directly, in the event of default by any independent
contractor, we may be held responsible for any wage payments that must be made to such labourers. If
we are required to pay the wages of the contracted employees, our results of operations and financial
condition could be adversely affected. In addition, under the Contract Labour (Regulation and
Abolition) Act, 1970, we may also be required to employ a number of such contract labourers as
permanent employees. Any order from a regulatory body or court directing us to employ contracted
employees could have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
39.
We have certain contingent liabilities which may adversely affect our financial condition.
As of September 30, 2014, our contingent liabilities on a consolidated basis, that have not been
provided for are as set out in the table below:

If a significant portion of these liabilities materialise, it could have an adverse effect on our business,

Statements – Contingent Liabilities” and “Standalone Financial Statements – Contingent Liabilities” on
pages 201 and 246, respectively.
40.
Land title in India can be uncertain and our Company may not be able to identify or correct defects
or irregularities in title to the land which it owns or intends to acquire.
There is no central title registry for real property in India and the method of documentation of land
records in India has not been fully computerised. Property records in India are generally maintained at
the state and district level and are updated manually through physical records of all land related
documents and may not be available online for inspection or updated in a timely manner. This could
result in investigations into property records taking a significant amount of time or being inaccurate in
certain respects, which may affect our Company’s ability to rely on them. Land records are often hand-
32
written, in local languages and not legible, which makes it difficult to ascertain their content. In
addition, land records are often in poor condition and are at times untraceable, which materially
impedes the title investigation process. In certain instances, there may be a discrepancy between the
extent of the areas stated in the revenue records and the areas stated in the title deeds, and the actual
physical area of some of the parcels of land on which our parks are set up or future projects are
proposed to be set up. Furthermore, improperly executed, unregistered or insufficiently stamped
conveyance instruments in a property’s chain of title, unregistered encumbrances in favour of third
parties, rights of adverse possessors, ownership claims of family members of prior owners or third
parties, or other defects that a purchaser may not be aware of can affect the title to a property. As a
result, potential disputes or claims over title to the land that our Company owns, or the land on which
our park is or future projects will be constructed, may arise. For example, an individual, Bharat Lekhraj
Harwani, had initiated proceedings before the Court of Civil Judge, Senior Division, Panvel, against
certain persons from whom we purchased land and our Company, alleging irregularities in the purchase
of land admeasuring 65 acres on which Adlabs Mumbai is located. Subsequently, the Bombay High
Court referred this dispute to arbitration. This matter is currently pending before an arbitration tribunal.
Further, another individual, Laxman Narayan Patil, has filed a suit before the Court of Civil Judge,
Junior Division at Khalapur against our Company, alleging encroachment on the part of our Company
over the land owned by him aggregating to 2.2 acres. The land in dispute forms part of the land on
which our theme park is situated. This dispute is currently pending before the District Court, Raigad at
Alibaug. In addition, our Company has received a notice from the Divisional Commissioner Office in
relation to the acquisition and use of such land by our Company. For details on these matters, see the
section “Outstanding Litigation and Material Developments” on page 277. Any adverse development in
either of these proceedings may adversely affect our business and results of operations.
We cannot assure you that there will be no legal defects and irregularities in title to any land which our
Company has acquired or may acquire in the future in connection with the development of parks or that
our Company will be able to identify or correct any such defects. Moreover, we cannot assure you that
all the legal defects, irregularities and disputes related to title would be identified by our Company
prior to the acquisition of land. Any defects or irregularities of title may result in loss of development
or operating rights over land, which may prejudice the success of our business and may require us to
write off substantial expenditures in respect of a project. Any inability to identify defects or
irregularities of title, and any inability to correct any such defects or irregularities of title may have an
adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

External Risk Factors
43.
Various factors beyond our control could adversely affect attendance and guest spending patterns at
our parks.
Our growth strategy depends significantly on our ability to increase attendance at our parks.
Attendance at our parks is affected by various factors beyond our control, including factors that
indirectly affect us due to their impact on our suppliers, vendors, insurance carriers or other contractual
counterparties. These factors include:

war, terrorist activities or threats and heightened travel security measures instituted in
response to these events;

outbreaks of pandemic or contagious diseases or consumers’ concerns relating to potential
exposure to contagious diseases;

natural disasters, such as hurricanes, fires, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornados and floods and
man-made disasters;

bad weather and forecasts of bad weather, including abnormally hot, cold and/or wet weather,
particularly during weekends, holidays or other peak periods;

changes in the desirability of particular locations or travel patterns of our guests; and

oil prices and travel costs and the financial condition of the airline, automotive and other
transportation-related industries, any travel-related disruptions or incidents, and the
development and maintenance of travel and particularly road traffic infrastructure.
Any one or more of these factors could adversely affect attendance and per capita spending, or increase
the cyclicality in spending, at our parks, which could adversely affect our business, results of
operations and financial condition.

44.
Our parks are susceptible to the consequences of natural calamities and extreme weather conditions,
which may adversely affect our business and results of operations.
Our parks are, or may in the future, be primarily located in regions in India that may be susceptible to
natural calamities and severe weather conditions including heavy monsoons, storms, or other similar
conditions. Such events may cause floods or damage to our parks, resulting in fewer visitors or closure
of our parks for extended or indefinite periods of time, which may have an adverse effect on our
operations. Such natural calamities and weather conditions may also adversely affect the number of
visitors in certain seasons, which may adversely affect our results of operations.
45.
We are subject to risks arising from exchange rate fluctuations. Depreciation of the Rupee against
foreign currencies may have an adverse effect on our results of operations.
While our revenues are denominated in Rupees, we import rides and attractions related equipment and
procure services from overseas, the costs and fees of which are denominated in foreign currencies. We
currently do not have any hedging arrangement for our foreign risk exposure. Details of our unhedged
foreign currency exposures are set out below:

Any adverse movements in the value of Rupee against the currencies set out above may increase our
cost of borrowings and increase depreciation cost. Moreover, imports are subject to Government
regulations and approvals, the availability of foreign exchange credit and the levy of customs duties.
Delays in obtaining required approvals, changes in customs duties or foreign exchange rates or adverse
movements in the value of the Rupee could lead to a delay in the acquisition of necessary equipment or
adverse financial implications due to price movements thereof, which could have an adverse effect on
our business and results of operations.
The exchange rate between the Rupee and the US Dollar has changed substantially in recent years and
may continue to fluctuate substantially in the future. Accordingly, our results of operations would be
negatively affected if the Rupee depreciates against the US Dollar even further. If we are unable to
recover the costs of foreign exchange variations through our ticket prices or from our lower cost
buyer’s credit facilities denominated in US Dollar, depreciation of the Rupee against foreign currencies
may adversely affect our results of operations and financial condition. Any further adverse change in
the exchange rate of the Indian Rupee, may also have an adverse effect on the market price of the
Equity Shares and returns from the Equity Shares, independent of our results of operations.
46.
Political, economic or other factors that are beyond our control may have an adverse effect on our
business and results of operations.
The following external risks may have an adverse impact on our business and results of operations
should any of them materialise:

a change in the central or Maharashtra state government or a change in the economic and
deregulation policies could adversely affect economic conditions prevalent in the areas in
which we operate in general and our business in particular;

high rates of inflation in India could increase our costs without proportionately increasing our
revenues, and as such decrease our operating margins; and
35

47.
a slowdown in economic growth or financial instability in India could adversely affect our
business and results of operations.
We may be affected by competition law in India and any adverse application or interpretation of the
Competition Act could adversely affect our business.
The Competition Act, 2002, of India, as amended (“Competition Act”) regulates practices having an
appreciable adverse effect on competition (“AAEC”) in the relevant market in India. Under the
Competition Act, any formal or informal arrangement, understanding or action in concert, which
causes or is likely to cause an AAEC is considered void and results in the imposition of substantial
penalties. Further, any agreement among competitors which directly or indirectly involves the
determination of purchase or sale prices, limits or controls production, shares the market by way of
geographical area or number of guests in the relevant market or directly or indirectly results in bidrigging or collusive bidding is presumed to have an AAEC in the relevant market in India and is
considered void. The Competition Act also prohibits abuse of a dominant position by any enterprise.
On March 4, 2011, the Government issued and brought into force the combination regulation (merger
control) provisions under the Competition Act with effect from June 1, 2011. These provisions require
acquisitions of shares, voting rights, assets or control or mergers or amalgamations that cross the
prescribed asset and turnover based thresholds to be mandatorily notified to and pre-approved by the
Competition Commission of India (the “CCI”). Additionally, on May 11, 2011, the CCI issued
Competition Commission of India (Procedure for Transaction of Business Relating to Combinations)
Regulations, 2011, as amended, which sets out the mechanism for implementation of the merger
control regime in India.
The Competition Act aims to, among others, prohibit all agreements and transactions which may have
an AAEC in India. Consequently, all agreements entered into by us could be within the purview of the
Competition Act. Further, the CCI has extra-territorial powers and can investigate any agreements,
abusive conduct or combination occurring outside India if such agreement, conduct or combination has
an AAEC in India. However, the impact of the provisions of the Competition Act on the agreements
entered into by us cannot be predicted with certainty at this stage. We are not currently party to any
outstanding proceedings, nor have we received notice in relation to non-compliance with the
Competition Act or the agreements entered into by us. However, if we are affected, directly or
indirectly, by the application or interpretation of any provision of the Competition Act, or any
enforcement proceedings initiated by the CCI, or any adverse publicity that may be generated due to
scrutiny or prosecution by the CCI or if any prohibition or substantial penalties are levied under the
Competition Act, it would adversely affect our business, results of operations and prospects.
48.
The Companies Act, 2013 has effected significant changes to the existing Indian company law
framework, which may subject us to higher compliance requirements and increase our compliance
costs.
A majority of the provisions and rules under the Companies Act, 2013 have been notified and have
come into effect from the date of their respective notification, resulting in the corresponding provisions
of the Companies Act, 1956 ceasing to have effect. The Companies Act, 2013 has brought into effect
significant changes to the Indian company law framework, such as in the provisions related to issue of
capital, disclosures in prospectus, corporate governance norms, audit matters, related party
transactions, introduction of a provision allowing the initiation of class action suits in India against
companies by shareholders or depositors, a restriction on investment by an Indian company through
more than two layers of subsidiary investment companies (subject to certain permitted exceptions),
prohibitions on loans to directors and insider trading and restrictions on directors and key managerial
personnel from engaging in forward dealing. We are also required to spend 2.0% of our average net
profits during three immediately preceding financial years towards corporate social responsibility
activities. Further, the Companies Act, 2013 imposes greater monetary and other liability on our
Company and Directors for any non-compliance. To ensure compliance with the requirements of the
Companies Act, 2013, we may need to allocate additional resources, which may increase our regulatory
compliance costs and divert management attention.
The Companies Act, 2013 introduced certain additional requirements which do not have corresponding
equivalents under the Companies Act, 1956. Accordingly, we may face challenges in interpreting and
complying with such provisions due to limited jurisprudence on them. In the event, our interpretation
36
of such provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 differs from, or contradicts with, any judicial
pronouncement or clarification issued by the Government in the future, we may face regulatory actions
or we may be required to undertake remedial steps. Additionally, some of the provisions of the
Companies Act, 2013 overlap with other existing laws and regulations (such as the corporate
governance norms and insider trading regulations). We may face difficulties in complying with any
such overlapping requirements. Further, we cannot currently determine the impact of provisions of the
Companies Act, 2013 which are yet to come in force. Any increase in our compliance requirements or
in our compliance costs may have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations.
49.
Any variation in the utilisation of the Net Proceeds as disclosed in the Red Herring Prospectus
would be subject to certain compliance requirements, including prior Shareholders’ approval.
We propose to utilise the Net Proceeds for partial repayment or pre-payment of the Consortium Loan.
For further details of the proposed objects of the Issue, see the section “Objects of the Issue” on page
85. At this stage, we cannot determine with any certainty if we would require the Net Proceeds to meet
any other expenditure or fund any exigencies arising out of competitive environment, business
conditions, economic conditions or other factors beyond our control. In accordance with Section 27 of
the Companies Act, 2013, we cannot undertake any variation in the utilisation of the Net Proceeds as
disclosed in the Red Herring Prospectus without obtaining the Shareholders’ approval through a special
resolution. In the event of any such circumstances that require us to undertake variation in the disclosed
utilisation of the Net Proceeds, we may not be able to obtain the Shareholders’ approval in a timely
manner, or at all. Any delay or inability in obtaining such Shareholders’ approval may adversely affect
our business or operations.
Further, our Promoters or controlling shareholders would be required to provide an exit opportunity to
the Shareholders who do not agree with our proposal to change the objects of the Issue, at a price and
manner as may be prescribed by SEBI. SEBI has not yet prescribed any regulations in this regard and
such regulations may contain onerous obligations. Additionally, the requirement on Promoters or
controlling shareholders to provide an exit opportunity to such dissenting Shareholders may deter the
Promoters or controlling shareholders from agreeing to the variation of the proposed utilisation of the
Net Proceeds, even if such variation is in the interest of our Company. Further, we cannot assure you
that the Promoters or the controlling shareholders of our Company will have adequate resources at their
disposal at all times to enable them to provide an exit opportunity at the price which may be prescribed
by SEBI.
In light of these factors, we may not be able to undertake variation of objects of the Issue to use any
unutilized proceeds of the Fresh Issue, if any, even if such variation is in the interest of our Company.
This may restrict our Company’s ability to respond to any change in our business or financial condition
by re-deploying the unutilised portion of Net Proceeds, if any, which may adversely affect our business
and results of operations.
Risks relating to the Initial Public Offering and the Equity Shares
50.
The Equity Shares have never been publicly traded, and, after the Issue, the Equity Shares may
experience price and volume fluctuations, and an active trading market for the Equity Shares may
not develop. Further, the price of the Equity Shares may be volatile, and you may be unable to resell
the Equity Shares at or above the Issue Price, or at all.
Prior to the Issue, there has been no public market for the Equity Shares, and an active trading market
on the Stock Exchanges may not develop or be sustained after the Issue. Listing and quotation does not
guarantee that a market for the Equity Shares will develop, or if developed, the liquidity of such market
for the Equity Shares. The Issue Price of the Equity Shares is proposed to be determined through a
book-building process and may not be indicative of the market price of the Equity Shares at the time of
commencement of trading of the Equity Shares or at any time thereafter. The market price of the
Equity Shares may be subject to significant fluctuations in response to, among other factors, variations
in our operating results of our Company, market conditions specific to the industry we operate in,
developments relating to India and volatility in the Stock Exchanges and securities markets elsewhere
in the world variations in the growth rate of financial indicators, variations in revenue or earnings
estimates by research publications, and changes in economic, legal and other regulatory factors.
51.
You will not be able to immediately sell any of the Equity Shares you subscribe to in this Issue on an
37
Indian stock exchange.
In accordance with Indian law and practice, permission for listing of the Equity Shares will not be
granted until after the Equity Shares in this Issue have been Allotted. Approval will require all other
relevant documents authorising the issuing of the Equity Shares to be submitted. There could be failure
or delays in listing the Equity Shares on the Indian Stock Exchanges.
The Equity Shares are proposed to be listed on the Indian Stock Exchanges. Further, pursuant to Indian
regulations, certain actions must be completed before the Equity Shares can be listed and commence
trading. Investors “book entry,” or “demat”, accounts with Depository Participants are expected to be
credited within three Working Days of the date on which the Basis of Allotment is approved by the
Designated Stock Exchange. Thereafter, upon receipt of final approval from the Designated Stock
Exchange, trading in the Equity Shares is expected to commence within 12 Working Days from
Bid/Issue Closing Date.
We cannot assure you that the Equity Shares will be credited to the investors’ demat account, or that
the trading in the Equity Shares will commence in a timely manner or at all. Any failure or delay in
obtaining the approvals would restrict your ability to dispose of the Equity Shares.
52.
Any future issuance of Equity Shares may dilute your shareholdings, and sales of the Equity Shares
by our major shareholders may adversely affect the trading price of the Equity Shares.
Any future equity issuances by our Company may lead to the dilution of investors’ shareholdings in
our Company. In addition, any sales of substantial amounts of the Equity Shares in the public market
after the completion of this Issue, including by major shareholders, or the perception that such sales
could occur, could adversely affect the market price of the Equity Shares and could impair our future
ability to raise capital through offerings of the Equity Shares. We cannot predict what effect, if any,
market sales of the Equity Shares held by the major shareholders of our Company or the availability of
these Equity Shares for future sale will have on the market price of the Equity Shares.
53.
There may be restrictions on daily movements in the price of the Equity Shares, which may adversely
affect a shareholder's ability to sell, or the price at which it can sell, Equity Shares at a particular
point in time.
Upon listing, the Equity Shares may be subject to a daily circuit breaker imposed on listed companies
by the Indian Stock Exchanges which does not allow transactions beyond certain volatility in the price
of the Equity Shares. This circuit breaker operates independently of the index-based market-wide
circuit breakers generally imposed by SEBI on Indian stock exchanges. The percentage limit on our
circuit breaker will be set by the Stock Exchanges based on certain factors such as the historical
volatility in the price and trading volume of the Equity Shares. The BSE and the NSE are not required
to inform us of the percentage limit of the circuit breaker from time to time, and may change it without
our knowledge. If imposed this circuit breaker would effectively limit the upward and downward
movements in the price of the Equity Shares. As a result of this circuit breaker, we cannot assure you
that shareholders will be able to sell the Equity Shares at an acceptable price, or at all.
54.
Significant differences exist between Indian GAAP and other accounting principles, such as U.S.
GAAP and IFRS, which may be material to the financial statements prepared and presented in
accordance with SEBI ICDR Regulations contained in this Red Herring Prospectus.
As stated in the reports of the Auditor included in this Red Herring Prospectus on pages 170 and 208,
the financial statements included in this Red Herring Prospectus are based on financial information that
is based on the audited financial statements that are prepared and presented in conformity with Indian
GAAP and restated in accordance with the SEBI ICDR Regulations, and no attempt has been made to
reconcile any of the information given in this Red Herring Prospectus to any other principles or to base
it on any other standards. Indian GAAP differs from accounting principles and auditing standards with
which prospective investors may be familiar in other countries, such as U.S. GAAP and IFRS.
Significant differences exist between Indian GAAP and U.S. GAAP and IFRS, which may be material
to the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with Indian GAAP contained in this
Red Herring Prospectus. Accordingly, the degree to which the financial information included in this
Red Herring Prospectus will provide meaningful information is dependent on familiarity with Indian
GAAP, the Companies Act and the SEBI ICDR Regulations. Any reliance by persons not familiar with
38
Indian GAAP on the financial disclosures presented in this Red Herring Prospectus should accordingly
be limited.
55.
Public companies in India, including our Company, may be required to prepare financial statements
under IFRS or IndAS (a variation of IFRS). The transition to IFRS or IndAS in India is very recent
and still unclear and our Company may be negatively affected by such transition.
The Company currently prepares its annual and interim financial statements under Indian GAAP.
Public companies in India, including the Company, may be required to prepare annual and interim
financial statements under Indian Accounting Standard 101 “First-time Adoption of Indian Accounting
Standards (“IndAS”). On January 2, 2015, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India (the
“MCA”) announced the revised roadmap for the implementation of IndAS (on a voluntary as well as
mandatory basis) for companies other than banking companies, insurance companies and non-banking
finance companies through a press release (the “Press Release”).
The Press Release specifies that IndAS will be required to be implemented on a mandatory basis by
companies whose securities are either listed or proposed to list, on any stock exchange in India or
outside India, based on their respective net worth as set out below:
Sr. No.
1.
2.
Net Worth
₹ 5,000 million or more
less than ₹ 5,000 million
First Period of Reporting
FY commencing on or after April 1, 2016
FY commencing on or after April 1, 2017
In addition, any holding, subsidiary, joint venture or associate companies of the companies specified
above shall also comply with such requirements from the respective periods specified above.
There is not yet a significant body of established practice on which to draw informing judgments
regarding its implementation and application. Additionally, IndAS differs in certain respects from IFRS
and therefore financial statements prepared under IndAS may be substantially different from financial
statements prepared under IFRS. There can be no assurance that the Company’s financial condition,
results of operations, cash flow or changes in shareholders’ equity will not be presented differently
under IndAS than under Indian GAAP or IFRS. When our Company adopts IndAS reporting, it may
encounter difficulties in the ongoing process of implementing and enhancing its management
information systems. There can be no assurance that the adoption of IndAS by our Company will not
adversely affect its results of operations or financial condition. Any failure to successfully adopt IndAS
in accordance with the prescribed timelines may have an adverse effect on the financial position and
results of operations of our Company.
56.
You may be subject to Indian taxes arising out of capital gains on the sale of the Equity Shares.
Under current Indian tax laws and regulations, capital gains arising from the sale of equity shares in an
Indian company are generally taxable in India. Any gain realised on the sale of shares on a stock
exchange held for more than 12 months will not be subject to capital gains tax in India if the securities
transaction tax (“STT”) has been paid on the transaction. The STT will be levied on and collected by an
Indian stock exchange on which equity shares are sold. Any gain realised on the sale of shares held for
more than 12 months to an Indian resident, which are sold other than on a recognised stock exchange
and as a result of which no STT has been paid, will be subject to long term capital gains tax in India.
Further, any gain realised on the sale of shares held for a period of 12 months or less will be subject to
capital gains tax in India. Further, any gain realised on the sale of listed equity shares held for a period
of 12 months or less which are sold other than on a recognised stock exchange and on which no STT
has been paid, will be subject to short term capital gains tax at a relatively higher rate as compared to
the transaction where STT has been paid in India. Capital gains arising from the sale of shares will be
exempt from taxation in India in cases where an exemption is provided under a treaty between India
and the country of which the seller is a resident. Generally, Indian tax treaties do not limit India’s
ability to impose tax on capital gains. As a result, residents of other countries may be liable for tax in
India as well as in their own jurisdictions on gains arising from a sale of the shares.
57.
Conditions in the Indian securities market may affect the price or liquidity of the Equity Shares.
In the past, Indian stock exchanges have experienced substantial fluctuations in the prices of listed
securities. These exchanges have also experienced problems that have affected the market price and
39
liquidity of the securities of Indian companies, such as temporary exchange closures, broker defaults,
settlement delays and strikes by brokers. In addition, the governing bodies of the Indian stock
exchanges have from time to time restricted securities from trading, limited price movements and
restricted margin requirements. Further, disputes have occurred on occasion between listed companies
and the Indian stock exchanges and other regulatory bodies that, in some cases, have had a negative
effect on market sentiment. If similar problems occur in the future, the market price and liquidity of our
Equity Shares could be adversely affected.

SECTION III: INTRODUCTION
SUMMARY OF INDUSTRY
In this section, we have included data relating to the Parks industry, both internationally and within India, and
other statistics. This information is based on industry publications, published sources and other publicly
available information, as well as our beliefs. We believe that the sources used are reliable. However, we cannot
ensure the accuracy or completeness of underlying assumptions of this information, and none of our Company,
the GCLMs or any other person connected with the Issue has independently verified this information. The
industry information included in this section may moreover be prepared as of specific dates and may no longer
be current or reflect current trends, or may be based on estimates, projections, forecasts and assumptions that
may prove to be incorrect. Investors should not place undue reliance on this industry information.
Unless noted otherwise, the information in this section is derived from the “Indian Amusement Parks Industry
Report,” dated January 2015 (“IMaCS Report”), by ICRA Management Consulting Services Limited.
For the purposes of this section, “Parks” refer to amusement parks, including theme parks and water parks.
The Indian Economy
The outlook for the Indian economy has improved since the middle of 2013 when India struggled with current
account and fiscal deficit, Rupee depreciation and high inflation. During 2014, improvements in the speed of
project approvals by the Government and the liberalisation of foreign direct investment norms in certain sectors
have led to an increase in economic growth in India.
Between April 1, 2014 and June 30, 2014, GDP growth increased to 5.7% in year-on-year terms from 4.6% in
the previous two quarters. GDP growth for the financial year 2015 is expected to increase to 5.3% - 5.5% from
4.7% for the financial year 2014.
In the first quarter of the financial year 2015, service sector growth was 6.8%, which comprised a growth of
10.4% in the financing, insurance, real estate and business services segments and 9.1% in the community, social
and personal services segments.
Consumption Pattern
Over the decade commencing 2015, the average household income is expected to triple. India’s household
consumption spending represents 57% of GDP and is approximately two times greater than investment demand.
In 2012, the average expenditure of Indian households on consumer services, such as transport, housing, health,
education, leisure, communication and hotels and catering, crossed 40% of private final consumption
expenditure. The increase in per capita income of the growing middle class is leading to an increase in
urbanisation. The urban population of India is expected to increase to 35% of the population in 2020 from 31%
of the population in 2010.
The increasing Indian urban population is expected to lead to an increase in spending on discretionary areas and
consumer services. Between 2010 and 2020, the average household income is expected to triple. A spend of 2%
of annual household income on activities such as leisure, picnics and holidays, translates to spend of ₹ 5,000 per
annum (for households with annual income of ₹ 0.25 million) to ₹ 20,000 per annum (for household with annual
income of ₹ 1 million).
A combination of factors such as a growing middle class, rapid urbanisation and an increase in nuclear families
in metropolitans which is also extending to smaller towns, is resulting in an increase in discretionary spending
and consumer services such as healthcare, outdoor recreation, education, consumer durables and
communication.
Rise in Tourism
Domestic tourism in India have shown a growth of 9.6% in 2013 over 2012. In 2013, the top five states for
domestic tourists were Tamil Nadu, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Maharashtra. The total
number of foreign tourist arrivals in India in 2013 was 6.97 million, a 5.9% increase from 2012. In 2013, the top
five states visited by foreign tourists were Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan.

Overview of the Global Parks Industry
There are more than 800 Parks in the world with annual attendance of over 600 million visitors per year. In the
United States, there are more than 400 Parks, with annual attendance of approximately 300 million visitors. In
Europe, there are approximately 330 Parks, with approximately 165 million visitors a year.
In 2012, the global Parks industry, in terms of revenue, was estimated at US$28 billion. In 2015, this is expected
to reach US$29.5 billion and by 2017 it is expected to reach US$32 billion. The Parks industry in regions such
as North America and Europe is highly saturated and matured. The United States and Europe have dominated
the industry since its inception. However, Asia now has nine of the top 25 amusement and theme parks in East
Asia. The importance of Asia is expected to increase with opening of Shanghai Disney in 2015. Asia also has
half of the top 20 water parks. In Asia, Japan and South Korea are showing signs of maturity and saturation
whereas markets in India, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia are still experiencing fast growth.
Growth Trends of Global Parks
Between 2007 and 2010, the Parks industry remained stagnant and exhibited marginal growth due to the global
economic conditions. Since 2010, the Parks industry has started to grow. The industry in Asia is growing
quickly with several new Parks being developed. The information below discusses the industry growth trends
from 2007 to 2013:
Footfall. Global footfall increased by 4.3% to 214.7 million in 2013 from 205.9 million in 2012. Large format
parks have visitors in excess of eight to nine million per year.
Five of the Parks among the top 25 Parks globally had an increase of over 10% attendance from the previous
year. The overall increase in footfall is attributed to a recovery in the global economy, increased investment in
rides and entertainment and the relevant location of the Parks. In 2013, major Parks in North America, Europe
and Asia companies had a successful year. Attendance remained strong in Asia and North America, with
attendance in Asia Pacific at 7.5% and North America at 2.7% growth. Attendance rates in Europe remained
stable in 2013.
Ticket Prices. In 2014, ticket prices remained constant or increased marginally at Parks in the United States and
Europe. In Asia, ticket prices experienced a higher increase.
Integrated Resorts. The concept of integrated resorts which include Parks, retail, hospitality, casinos and
cultural facilities are becoming increasingly popular in Asia. This is in line with and a further development of
what Parks in Europe and the United States have been offering. The new additions are based on a cross
subsidisation model with large cash flows from casinos supporting cultural facilities, which have a lower cash
flow.
Global Economy. The entertainment industry was affected by the economic downturn of 2008 which continued
until 2010 in the United States and is still visible in Europe. Asia has shown the fastest growth in footfall for
Parks. Several leading international and domestic operators have shown strong growth in 2013. The Asian
markets, led by China and India, with growing economies and an expanding middle class are expected to be the
high growth markets for the Parks industry in the medium to long-term.
Indian Parks Industry
The Indian Parks industry is in its nascent stage and is developing at a rapid pace. As of January 2015, there are
approximately 150 Parks in India. With a population of over 1.21 billion people, the ratio of Parks to people is
very small in India. In contrast, the United States has over 400 Parks with a population of approximately 313
million. Only 10.0% to 15.0% of the Parks in India are classified as large parks.
The size of the Indian Parks industry is estimated at ₹ 25 billion to ₹ 30 billion, in terms of revenue, with an
estimated annual footfall of over 50 million, and the industry has grown between 20.0% and 25.0% over the last
five years. The Parks industry in India is expected to grow to a total size of approximately ₹ 50 billion to ₹ 60
billion over the next five years, in terms of revenue.
Certain Key Features of the Indian Amusement Park Industry
Ticket Prices. Ticket prices in India are starting to increase to align with international pricing patterns. Most
Parks in India offer a single pay ticket with some parks offering pay-as-you-go tickets as well. Ticket prices at
43
leading Parks range between ₹ 600 and ₹ 1,000 per adult.
Revenue Mix. International Parks typically generate around 50.0% of revenue from admission tickets. Indian
Parks generate up to 75.0% to 80.0% of revenue from admission tickets. Due to an increase in disposable
income, improving lifestyle and an increase in nuclear families, the in-park spending is expected to increase in
the short to medium term.
Peripheral Infrastructure. Parks in India are still in the early stages of development. Most of the revenue for
Indian Parks is attributable to admission tickets. Parks in Europe and the United States generate significant
revenue from hotels, as trips to Parks tend to be considered as weekend getaways or holiday destinations. In
India, the concept of a Park vacation is still not popular. The development of hotels around Parks in India may
promote the concept of Park vacations.
Growth Drivers
The major growth drivers for the Parks industry in India include the following:
Urbanisation. As a result of rapid urbanisation, more people in India are looking for entertainment and leisure
options.
Gross Domestic Product and Income Growth. More families are prepared to spend money on leisure activities.
As the Indian economy grows and industry models in the United States and Europe are replicated, Parks will be
able to market themselves as weekend getaways.
Increase in the Number of Nuclear Families. The number of nuclear households in India increased from 61.0%
in 2006 to 66.0% in 2010. As a result, households are spending more on a per capita basis, which may also lead
to an increase in discretionary spending.
Increase in Tourism. The increase in domestic tourism in India is a strong growth driver. Domestic vacations are
becoming more appealing to the Indian population because of the increased exchange rate fluctuations
associated with overseas travel and an increasing middle class population.
Investment Trends
Over the last five years, the Indian leisure industry is estimated to have increased between 20.0% and 25.0% in
terms of overall revenue. Malls are the primary entertainment destinations in Indian cities. The top five malls by
footfall recorded over 117 million visitors. Parks in India are well positioned to attract demand from this
customer segment.
Barriers to Entry
Land Acquisition and Red Tape
One of the biggest challenges for new projects is land acquisition. Single window clearances are not easily
available, thereby making the entry process cumbersome. Individual states have laid down directives in their
tourism policy to provide support to projects, which will help in encouraging tourism.
Capital Intensive Business
Parks require regular investment in infrastructure and rides and attractions. Addition of rides and attractions is
necessary for a Park to be able to sustain a growing footfall.

SUMMARY OF OUR BUSINESS
Overview
We own and operate, Imagica – The Theme Park, which is one of the leading theme parks in India. Our theme
park features a diverse variety of rides and attractions of international standards, food and beverages (“F&B”)
outlets and retail and merchandise shops, designed to appeal to a broad demography of the Indian populace,
delivering memorable experiences, with a strong value proposition. Imagica – The Theme Park, is a part of
Adlabs Mumbai, a ‘one-stop’ entertainment destination that we offer at this location. Adlabs Mumbai also
includes Aquamagica, a water park, which became fully operational on October 1, 2014, and a family hotel,
Novotel Imagica Khopoli, the first phase of which is expected to be completed by March 2015. Adlabs Mumbai,
spread over an aggregate area of approximately 132 acres, is located at Khalapur, which is 74 kilometres from
Mumbai, off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway.
Imagica – The Theme Park is a one-of-a-kind offering in India and currently has 25 rides and attractions, which
are spread over six theme-based zones. Our marquee offerings include Rajasaurus River Adventure, a boat ride
offering our guests a peek into the pre-historic habitats of dinosaurs, Wrath of the Gods, a VFX show based on
an archaeological discovery of an ancient Indian civilisation, Nitro, which we believe is India’s largest roller
coaster, I for India, a simulated helicopter ride over various sights and attractions across India and Mr. India –
the Ride, a simulated ride based on the popular Bollywood movie, Mr. India. We also offer entertainment
through live performances by acrobats, magicians, dancers, musicians and other artists throughout the day in
various parts of our theme park.
In Imagica – The Theme Park, we own and operate an array of F&B outlets, including Roberto’s Food Coaster,
a multi-cuisine food court, which also has a separate Jain restaurant, Red Bonnet, an American diner-styled
restaurant, Imagica Capital, an Indian buffet restaurant which serves cuisines from across the country, Zeze, a
bar and grill which is designed as an African Zulu village and Arrmada, a cafe and bar modelled as a ship,
which offers panoramic views of the entire theme park, as well as several kiosks spread across the theme park.
Our retail and merchandise offerings provide our guests an opportunity to memorialise their experiences at the
theme park by purchasing products such as toys, apparel, bags, caps and commemorative mementos and
photographs, which carry the ‘Imagica’ brand or are based on one of the rides or attractions in our theme park.
We also retail candies, chocolates and other utilities such as hats and sunglasses. While we largely retail through
our six stores and several kiosks inside our theme park, we have recently launched our products on ours as well
as third party websites and intend to expand the sales and distribution network of our retail and merchandise
operations.
Imagica – The Theme Park, became fully operational on November 1, 2013. For a period of approximately six
months prior to November 1, 2013, some of the rides and attractions in our theme park were open to the public.
The total number of guests hosted at our theme park for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014 was
912,061. We hosted 11,933 guests on December 20, 2013, the highest number of guests hosted by us in a day
since our theme park became fully operational.
Aquamagica, our water park located adjacent to our theme park, became fully operational on October 1, 2014.
For a period of six days prior to October 1, 2014, some of the rides and attractions in our water park were open
to the public. It offers 14 kinds of water slides and wave pools, including: Zip Zap Zoom, a high-speed mat racer
that moves through enclosed looping aqua tubes, Loopy Woopy, a ride that comprises a launch capsule which is
controlled by a trap door, leading to a steep vertical drop of 72 feet, Screamer, which offers a series of twists,
turns and oscillations through “rattles” which change shape in alignment with the different lengths of cylinders,
and Twisty Turvy, a water coaster with drops and curves. It also offers water-based entertainment such as a
beach front, waterfalls, cabanas and comprises separate family play areas, kids play zones and toddlers play
equipment. Our water park has a separate admission ticket and a separate entrance from our theme park.
Our objective is to take advantage of cross selling opportunities offered by these two different entertainment
experiences. We intend to position Aquamagica as a destination for young party-goers and host Bollywood and
electronic dance music events where popular Indian and international artists and DJs perform at our
‘#gowiththeflow’ weekend events. For the period commencing on September 25, 2014, when some of the rides
and attractions were open to the public, up to December 31, 2014, the total number of guests hosted at our water
park was 90,940.
In Aquamagica, our F&B offerings are primarily designed as ‘grab and go’ options, which we believe caters to
the preferences of customers enjoying water-based entertainment in the park. In addition to a Ammos, a street-
45
styled, dine-in, multi-cuisine food court, our other outlets include Sun Beatz – Pizzeria, Labanese & Bar, located
next to the wave pool, Red Bonet Express, a classic quick-service American Diner, Cones, which offers a
variety of ice-creams and sundaes, Sandy Sipss, which offers juices, shakes and smoothies and Salty’s – Snacks
& Rolls, which offers a range of rolls which can be picked up on-the-go. We also have a variety of self-serving
kiosks with a diverse range of express meals, including burgers, pizzas, Greek and Lebanese wraps and rolls, hot
dogs and Mumbai street food. Our retail and merchandise operations inside our water park are primarily
structured to offer a variety of swimwear and beachwear options to our guests, including an Aquamagicabranded line of swimwear across various price points and a range of women’s clothing. We also offer utility
products and toys that our guests are likely to use in a water park.
The first phase of our proposed 287 key hotel, to be called Novotel Imagica Khopoli, comprising 116 keys, is
expected to be completed by March 2015 and will include facilities such as banquet halls, conference rooms,
specialty restaurants, a gourmet bar, recreation areas, a swimming pool, a spa, a kids’ activity centre and a
fitness centre to cater to varying entertainment requirements of our guests. We have entered into a hotel
management agreement with AAPC India Hotel Management Private Limited (“AAPC”), a company belonging
to the Accor Group, which operates several global hotel chains, to manage and operate our hotel, under the
name Novotel Imagica Khopoli. We have also entered into a hotel consultancy service agreement with AAPC
for certain consultancy and designing services.
We have also entered into a memorandum of understanding with ACME Entertainment, which will
conceptualize, construct, install, erect and run on a build, own, operate and transfer basis, a snow park at Adlabs
Mumbai and share a portion of ticket sales for the snow park with us. With addition of the water park, the soonto-be-launched hotel and the snow park, we believe we will be able to enhance guest experience at Adlabs
Mumbai and position Adlabs Mumbai as a wholesome entertainment destination.
Our promoter, Mr. Manmohan Shetty, has more than three decades of experience in the Indian media and
entertainment industry. Mr. Shetty is the former promoter of Adlabs Films Limited, one of India’s largest
entertainment companies.
For the financial year ended March 31, 2014, our total income and our loss after tax was ₹ 1,069.18 million and
₹ 524.82 million, respectively. Our revenue from the sale of admission tickets, which was for a period of five
months from November 1, 2013 (when our theme park became fully operational) to March 31, 2014, from our
F&B operations and from our retail and merchandise operations was ₹ 712.88 million, ₹ 240.21 million and ₹
63.82 million, respectively. For the six months ended September 30, 2014, our total income and our loss after
tax was ₹ 733.25 million and ₹ 535.29 million, respectively. Our revenue from the sale of admission tickets,
from our F&B operations and from our retail and merchandise operations for the six months ended September
30, 2014 was ₹ 553.82 million, ₹ 119.80 million and ₹ 38.86 million, respectively.
Our Competitive Strengths
Our primary competitive strengths are set out below:
Uniquely Positioned to Capitalise on the Increasing Propensity of Indians to Spend on Entertainment
Favourable macroeconomic and demographic factors such as economic growth, rising disposable income, a
growing young population, an expanding middle class and rapid urbanisation have resulted in the Indian
population spending more on entertainment. With the rise in education levels and exposure to international
trends, Indian consumers are willing to pay a premium for quality entertainment. We believe that a wellexecuted parks project will cater to the growing interest in quality entertainment.
Adlabs Mumbai has been designed to provide a wholesome, day-long and ‘value for money’ entertainment
option for guests. We offer entertainment options for all age groups through a variety of rides and attractions,
which we believe are comparable to and provide the international standards of experience that leading theme
parks and water parks offer globally. Our offerings are also customised to Indian tastes. This positions Adlabs
Mumbai to capitalise on the increasing number of Indian customers spending on good-quality entertainment.
Further, our ability to provide quality entertainment at one destination will be enhanced with the launch of our
hotel and the snow park, enabling us to attract more guests.
46
Strategically Located in an Attractive Catchment Area
Adlabs Mumbai is located off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. Currently, we attract guests primarily from
Mumbai, Pune and the rest of Maharashtra and Gujarat, which are some of the more economically developed
areas in India. For example, the per capita income of Mumbai and Pune was ₹ 152,000 and ₹ 141,000,
respectively, which are significantly higher than the national average. (Source: Indian Amusement Parks
Industry Report, dated January 2015, by ICRA Management Consulting Services Limited and The World Bank,
available at: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.PCAP.CD) Mumbai is the most populous city in
India and one of the most populous cities in the world. Along with the neighbouring urban areas such as Navi
Mumbai and Thane, it is one of the most populous urban regions in the world. Mumbai and Pune also have a
large student and youth population and benefit from a large number of domestic and international tourists. In
addition, with a large base of corporates in this region, we have the ability to market Adlabs Mumbai as a venue
for meetings, off-sites and other corporate events.
We also have the ability to attract pan-India guests due to the proximity and the connectivity of Adlabs Mumbai
to Mumbai and Pune through the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. Adlabs Mumbai is 46 kilometres from Panvel,
Navi Mumbai and is one to two hours drive from most suburbs of Mumbai and from Pune, making it easily
accessible for guests from Mumbai, Pune and the rest of Maharashtra and for other tourists accessing our parks
through one of these cities. Mumbai is well connected to other large cities in India by air, road and rail with
multiple flight options in a day. In addition, Lonavala, which is 25 kilometres away from Adlabs Mumbai, is a
very popular weekend destination for the customer base in this region and we believe that we will be able to
attract many of such travellers to Adlabs Mumbai.
Further, Adlabs Mumbai is located in an area that experiences suitable weather throughout the year to spend a
day outdoors. In addition, the majority of our rides, attractions and queuing and waiting areas in our parks are
covered to avoid any inconvenience during the monsoon season.
Rides and Attractions of International Quality Standards which are Customised to Indian Tastes and
Preferences
Our parks are attractively themed and deliver high-quality entertainment, aesthetic appeal, shopping and dining
options. Our theme park rides and attractions, such as our popular attractions, Wrath of the Gods, I for India and
Mr. India – the Ride, have been designed in accordance with international quality standards and customised to
appeal to the tastes and preferences of Indian customers. Our water-park rides and attractions are designed to
cater to the requirements of thrill-seekers based on a ‘#gowiththeflow’ theme. We believe that we have a large
number of rides and attractions of various genres to keep our guests from different age groups and with varying
tastes and preferences engaged for an entire day. Our offerings include, high-speed roller coasters, VFX shows
for an enhanced visual experience, indoor attractions such as a 360 degrees cinema, a number of rides for
children, a thrill based vertical-drop for young adults and mythology based immersive experiences consisting of
live theatre, special effects and multimedia presentations for the entire family. Our water-park offerings include
a 72-feet plunge in water, several kinds of slides and a wave pool.
We engaged Peter Smulders of Attractions International, an internationally acclaimed design consultant for
entertainment destinations, to conceptualise and design our theme park. The rides and attractions for our theme
park have been designed by and sourced from global industry leaders such as Bolliger & Mabillard Inc.,
Zamperla Asia Pacific Inc., Sally Industries Inc., E2M Technologies B.V. and Santec Fabricators (India) Private
Limited, which is a part of the Sanderson Group. The water slides and equipment in our water park have been
sourced from global industry leaders such as Whitewater West Industries Limited, Neptune Benson (Defender
Water Filtration Systems) and Polin Dis Tic. Ltd. Sti. Our consultants and vendors have worked with many of
the leading theme and water parks across the world, thus allowing us to leverage their expertise in customising
or creating the rides and attractions of international quality standards for Indian requirements. Our theme park
rides and attractions which are based on Indian mythology, Bollywood and other popular themes, allow us to
develop an emotional connect with our guests. We also follow high levels of park security and safety standards
to offer a safe and injury free environment for our guests to enjoy the parks.
Competitive Advantage through Entry Barriers
We believe that we have the ability to leverage the ‘first-mover advantage’ through Adlabs Mumbai. There are
significant barriers to entry into the business of theme and water parks in India and it is difficult to replicate a
project of similar scale and size in our catchment area. Among the most important of these barriers is the need
for significant capital expenditure to set up theme and water parks, the difficulty to identify and purchase large
47
and suitable parcels of land on commercially viable terms and the long lead-time from the conceptualisation to
the launch of rides and attractions. We believe that our location off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway, the large
parcel of land owned by us, our rides and attractions of international quality and standards and our qualified
management and operations team provide us with a significant competitive advantage over any new park in this
region. In addition, we believe that through the various rides and attractions we have developed at Imagica –
The Theme Park, we have created our own intellectual property and know-how, such as our popular attractions,
Mr. India – The Ride, I for India and Wrath of the Gods that further enhances the barriers of entry for our
competitors.
Well-positioned Brand and Marketing Focus
In our short operational history, we believe that we have been able to establish brand recognition in Mumbai,
Pune and the rest of Maharashtra and Gujarat markets. We believe that we have been able to achieve this
through a combination of factors:

Delivering superior visitor experiences in our parks through our diverse offerings of rides and
attractions and other entertainment options and thus, developing a brand recall through word of mouth
publicity. We have also actively focused on attracting school groups as we believe that school children
who visit our parks act as our brand ambassadors and have the potential of bringing the entire family
back on another visit;

Dynamic and attractive pricing strategy to coincide with various events, festivals, seasons and holidays
throughout the year;

Existing well-established position of the ‘Adlabs’ brand in the media and entertainment industry; and

Engaging with various target groups through focused marketing, consisting of regular electronic, print
and digital media campaigns and direct sales efforts.
Proven and Experienced Management Team and Execution Strength
Our senior management team, led by Manmohan Shetty, includes experienced media and entertainment,
marketing and consumer businesses executives, with an average tenure of more than 15 years in such industries.
Mr. Manmohan Shetty is a well known entrepreneur in the media and entertainment business in India and has
more than three decades of experience in consumer-facing entertainment businesses. He has also served on key
industry bodies in India, including as the Chairman of the National Film Development Corporation, set up by
the Government of India to promote cinema and he has also been the President of the Film and Television
Producers Guild of India. During Mr. Shetty’s association, Adlabs Films Limited launched many innovations in
the Indian film exhibition business, such as multiplexes, the IMAX theatre and digital cinema business.
Our parks operations team comprises highly skilled and dedicated employees with wide ranging experience in
operations, product development, business development and marketing. Our Chief Operating Officer, Vincent
Pijnenburg is an experienced theme park executive with more than two decades of experience with small,
medium and large sized parks and family entertainment centres across the globe. Through the experience and
leadership of our management team we were able to complete the development of our parks in a timely manner
and within the estimated project cost. We believe that we will be able to leverage this experience in the ongoing
development of our hotel and the development of additional entertainment destinations in other locations.
Our Business Strategies
We aim to establish theme-based entertainment destinations of international standards across India through the
following primary business strategies:
Develop Adlabs Mumbai as an Integrated Holiday Destination
Currently, a significant majority of our guests are residents of our catchment area, Mumbai, Pune, rest of
Maharashtra and Gujarat who make day-trips to our theme park off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. With the
launch of our water park and our hotel, we intend to market Adlabs Mumbai as a multiple day holiday
destination and attract guests for a longer stay. We also intend to exploit the proximity of Adlabs Mumbai to
Lonavala and Khandala, which are popular hill stations, to attract tourists. We intend to offer various cost
promotion and combination packages of admission tickets to our parks and stay at our hotel to take advantage of
cross selling opportunities. In addition, we aim to market our facilities as a suitable venue for hosting wedding
48
receptions, parties, conferences and meetings and other corporate events. We have entered into a memorandum
of understanding for the development of an adventure-course tower, adjacent to our hotel as an additional
entertainment option for guests making a multi-day trip to our parks. Further, we have also entered into a
memorandum of understanding with ACME Entertainment for the development of a snow park at Adlabs
Mumbai.
Continue to Focus on Increasing the Number of Guests Hosted at our Parks
We plan to increase attendance at our parks through the following strategies:

Increasing awareness of our parks and our ‘Adlabs’, ‘Imagica’ and ‘Aquamagica’ brands through
effective media and marketing campaigns, aimed at various target groups including families, young
kids, college students and young professionals. We will also continue to reach out to a greater number
of schools and corporates for increasing attendance at our parks;

Offering a variety of ticket options and disciplined pricing and promotional strategies to coincide with
events and holidays throughout the year. We also aim to follow a dynamic pricing model which will
enable us to adjust admission prices for our parks based on expected demand and attract diverse
segments of our customer base;

By periodically introducing new attractions, differentiating experiences and enhancing service
offerings. We believe that word of mouth is our most important marketing tool and, therefore, our
primary business objective is to make the time spent by the guests in our parks as enjoyable as possible.
We specifically focus on entrance and security procedures, queue management, cleanliness, quick
availability of F&B products and retail merchandise to make the guests’ experiences as comfortable
and entertaining as possible; and

Focusing on sales and marketing initiatives in the secondary catchment areas, such as our print
campaign from time to time in major cities like Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Jaipur, to
attract tourists visiting the Mumbai – Pune region.
Diversify our Revenue Streams
Sales of admission tickets comprised a significant portion of our total income for the financial year 2014
(income from the sale of admission ticket commenced on November 1, 2013) and the six months period
September 30, 2014. We intend to increase our non-ticketing revenue through the following strategies:

Focus on F&B and retail and merchandise operations by targeting the per capita spending of our guests.
We believe that by providing our guests additional and enhanced offerings at various price points, we
can increase spending in our parks. We will continue to innovate in our F&B offerings to cater to the
diverse preferences of our guests. For example, we recently started a Jain food restaurant and also
initiated the sale of alcoholic beverages in our theme park;

Monetise the crowd movement in our parks by offering sponsorship opportunities to advertisers for
special events, naming rights for our rides and attractions, partnering in destination advertising and
assisting in products and brand activations;

With the completion of our hotel, we intend to position Adlabs Mumbai as a destination for varying
customer requirements, including for entertainment, corporate meetings and off-sites and other events;

Promote Adlabs Mumbai as a venue for destination weddings with a variety of themes; and

Aim to develop an emotional connect with our guests through our brands and characters developed by
us, which we believe will provide us with opportunities to leverage our intellectual property portfolio,
and to develop new media and entertainment options and to increase the sale of consumer products, in
and outside Adlabs Mumbai.
Increase Profitability and Achieve Cost Optimisation
We believe that increased attendance at our parks and an increase in the per capita spending will allow us to
make our business more profitable because of the relatively fixed cost-base and the high operative leverage
involved in our business. We will continue to focus on F&B and retail and merchandise spending to improve
49
our operating margins. With the commencement of operations of our water park and the soon-to-be-launched
hotel, we will be able to offer more dynamic pricing to account for seasonal fluctuations in attendance. We also
aim to achieve better cost optimisation through economies of scale by measures such as company-wide and
centralised procurement and sourcing strategy and integrated marketing campaigns. In addition, we aim to
benefit from shared services such as security, ticketing, F&B and general administration of our parks.
Expand our Existing Operations and Foray into New Geographies in India
In addition to the ongoing development of our hotel, we aim to pursue other expansion opportunities at our
parks. We intend to add three to four rides and attractions over the next five years, including one major ride or
attraction every two years, at our parks. We intend to use the existing areas available inside our parks for these
new rides and attractions.
We also intend to set up integrated holiday destinations in other locations in India, either through parks owned
and operated by us or through a partnership or a franchise model. We have identified Hyderabad as a new
location to develop a new theme park and we are currently in the process of preparing a project development
plan. We will continue to seek to place our theme parks and water parks near each other, which will allow us to
operate with reduced overhead costs and create cross selling opportunities.
Further, we have also entered into a memorandum of understanding, dated July 1, 2013, for the purpose of
submitting bids to set up tourism-related projects in Gujarat.

Illustration of Book Building Process and Price Discovery Process
Investors should note that this example is solely for illustrative purposes and is not specific to the Issue; it also
excludes bidding by Anchor Investors or under the ASBA process.
Bidders can bid at any price within the price band. For instance, assume a price band of ₹ 20 to ₹ 24 per share,
issue size of 3,000 equity shares and receipt of five bids from bidders, details of which are shown in the table
below. A graphical representation of the consolidated demand and price would be made available at bidding
centres during the bidding period. The illustrative book given below shows the demand for the equity shares of

The price discovery is a function of demand at various prices. The highest price at which the issuer is able to
issue the desired number of equity shares is the price at which the book cuts off, i.e., ₹ 22.00 in the above
example. The issuer, in consultation with the book running lead managers, will finalise the issue price at or
below such cut-off price, i.e., at or below ₹ 22.00. All bids at or above this issue price and cut-off bids are valid
bids and are considered for allocation in the respective categories.
Steps to be taken by Bidders for Bidding:
1.
Check eligibility for making a Bid (see “Issue Procedure – Who Can Bid?” on page 310);
69
2.
Ensure that you have a demat account and the demat account details are correctly mentioned in the Bid

3.
Except for Bids (i) on behalf of the Central or State Governments and the officials appointed by courts,

transacting in the securities market, and (ii) Bids by persons resident in the State of Sikkim, who, in
terms of the SEBI circular dated July 20, 2006, may be exempted from specifying their PAN for
transacting in the securities market, for Bids of all values, ensure that you have mentioned your PAN
allotted under the Income Tax Act in the Bid cum Application Form. In accordance with the SEBI
ICDR Regulations, the PAN would be the sole identification number for participants transacting in the
securities market, irrespective of the amount of transaction (see the section “Issue Procedure” on page
314);
4.
Ensure that the Bid cum Application Form is duly completed as per the instructions given in this Red
Herring Prospectus and in the Bid cum Application Form;
5.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Issue is also subject to obtaining (i) receipt of Bids equivalent to at least 25%

companies registered with IRDA; (ii) obtaining final approval of the RoC after the Prospectus is filed with the

Allotment to Retail Individual Investors and Minimum Bid Lots
The minimum Bid Lot will be decided by our Company and the Selling Shareholder in consultation with the
GCLMs and will be advertised at least five Working Days prior to the Bid/Issue Opening Date. In the event, the
Bids received from Retail Individual Investors exceeds 2,032,622 Equity Shares, then the maximum number of
Retail Individual Investors who can be allocated/Allotted the minimum Bid Lot will be computed by dividing
the total number of the Equity Shares available for allocation/Allotment to Retail Individual Investors by the
minimum Bid Lot (“Maximum RIB Allottees”).
The allocation/Allotment to Retail Individual Investors will then be made in the following manner:

In the event the number of Retail Individual Investors who have submitted valid Bids in the Issue is
equal to or less than Maximum RIB Allottees, (i) Retail Individual Investors shall be allocated /
Allotted the minimum Bid Lot; and (ii) the balance Equity Shares, if any, remaining in the Retail
Portion shall be allocated/ Allotted on a proportionate basis to the Retail Individual Investors who have
received allocation/Allotment as per (i) above for less than the Equity Shares Bid by them (i.e. who

The minimum Promoters’ contribution has been brought in to the extent of not less than the specified

Company undertakes that the Equity Shares that are being locked-in are not ineligible for computation
of Promoters’ contribution in terms of Regulation 33 of SEBI ICDR Regulations.

Other requirements in respect of lock-in:
In addition to the 20% of the fully diluted post-Issue shareholding of our Company held by our
Promoters and locked in for three years as specified above, the entire pre-Issue equity share capital of
our Company, except the Equity Shares subscribed to and Allotted pursuant to the Offer for Sale, will
be locked-in for a period of one year from the date of Allotment.
Our Promoter, Thrill Park has pledged 23,394,782 Equity Shares of our Company with the Consortium
Lenders as collateral security under the Common Loan Agreement. Pursuant to Regulation 36 of the
SEBI ICDR Regulations, the entire pre-Issue shareholding of the Promoters in excess of the minimum
promoters’ contribution is required to be locked-in for a period of one year from the date of the
Allotment. The pledge over the Equity Shares will be released prior to the Allotment for the purpose of
compliance with such lock-in requirement.
The Equity Shares held by our Promoters which are locked-in for a period of one year from the date of
Allotment may be pledged only with scheduled commercial banks or public financial institutions as
collateral security for loans granted by such banks or public financial institutions, provided that such
pledge of the Equity Shares is one of the terms of the sanction of such loans. Accordingly, the Equity
Shares required to be pledged with the Consortium Lenders under the Common Loan Agreement will
be re-pledged after the Allotment.
The Equity Shares held by our Promoters which are locked-in may be transferred to and among the
Promoter Group or to any new promoter or persons in control of our Company, subject to continuation
of the lock-in in the hands of the transferees for the remaining period and compliance with the
Takeover Regulations, as applicable.
The Equity Shares held by persons other than our Promoters and locked-in for a period of one year
from the date of Allotment in the Issue may be transferred to any other person holding the Equity
Shares which are locked-in, subject to the continuation of the lock-in in the hands of transferees for the
remaining period and compliance with the Takeover Regulations. However, under Regulation 37(b) of
the SEBI ICDR Regulations, 10,434,779 Equity Shares held by India Advantage Fund are not subject
to lock-in.
Any Equity Shares allotted to Anchor Investor Portion shall be locked-in for a period of 30 days from

The funds deployment described herein is based on management estimates and current circumstances of our
business. Given the dynamic nature of our business, we may have to revise our funding requirements and
deployment of funds on account of variety of factors such as our financial condition, business and strategy,
including external factors which may not be within the control of our management. In case of any increase in the
actual utilisation of funds earmarked for the Objects, such additional funds for a particular activity will be met
by way of means available to our Company, including from internal accruals. If the actual utilisation towards
any of the Objects is lower than the proposed deployment such balance will be used for general corporate
purposes to the extent that the total amount to be utilized towards general corporate purposes will not exceed
25% of the proceeds from the Fresh Issue in accordance with Regulation 4(4) of the SEBI ICDR Regulations.
Details of the Objects of the Fresh Issue
1.
Partial repayment or pre-payment of the Consortium Loan
Our Company has availed of Consortium Loan through the Common Loan Agreement for capital
expenditure towards the development of Adlabs Mumbai, which includes the theme park, the water
park, the hotel and retail, dining and entertainment facilities (collectively, the “Project”) and for
repayment of the loan from Syndicate Bank (the “Short Term Loan”), which was also obtained for the
development of the Project. The amount sanctioned under the Consortium Loan aggregated ₹ 11,000
million as of December 31, 2014. Further, the amount outstanding under the Consortium Loan,
including interest accrued and due, bank guarantee and letter of credit as of December 31, 2014 was ₹
10,865.19 million. For further details of the terms and conditions of the Consortium Loan, see the
section “Financial Indebtedness” on pages 256 to 261.
Our Company intends to utilise ₹ 3,300.00 million to proportionately repay and/or pre-pay a part of the
Consortium Loan. We believe that such repayment/ pre-payment will help reduce our outstanding
indebtedness and our debt-equity ratio. We believe that reducing our indebtedness will result in an
enhanced equity base, assist us in maintaining a favourable debt-equity ratio in the near future and
enable utilization of our accruals for further investment in business growth and expansion in new
projects. In addition, we believe that the leverage capacity of our Company will improve significantly
to raise further resources in the future to fund our potential business development opportunities and
plans to grow and expand our business in the coming years.
Further, our Company has, through its application dated March 22, 2014 sought the approval of the
Consortium Lenders for extension of the commissioning schedule of Adlabs Mumbai to April 1, 2015.
Pending the receipt of certain outstanding consents, the moratorium is currently in effect and our
Company has agreed to commence repayment of the outstanding principal amount from April 30,
2015.

The Indian Economy
The outlook for the Indian economy has improved since the middle of 2013 when India struggled with current
account and fiscal deficit, Rupee depreciation and high inflation. During 2014, improvements in the speed of
project approvals by the Government and the liberalisation of foreign direct investment norms in certain sectors
have led to an increase in economic growth in India.
Between April 1, 2014 and June 30, 2014, GDP growth increased to 5.7% in year-on-year terms from 4.6% in
the previous two quarters. GDP growth for the financial year 2015 is expected to increase to 5.3% - 5.5% from
4.7% for the financial year 2014. The chart below illustrates the quarterly growth in GDP for the periods
indicated:
In the first quarter of the financial year 2015, service sector growth was 6.8%, which comprised a growth of
10.4% in the financing, insurance, real estate and business services segments and 9.1% in the community, social
and personal services segments. The chart below illustrates the quarterly growth in service sector GDP:

Consumption Pattern
Over the decade commencing 2015, the average household income is expected to triple. India’s household
consumption spending represents 57% of GDP and is approximately two times greater than investment demand.
In India, the majority of consumption expenditure is on food. This pattern is expected to change in the future as
proportional expenditure on discretionary items is increasing and expenditure on food is decreasing with the rise
in household income.
The consumer spending pattern focuses on services. In 2012, the average expenditure of Indian households on
consumer services, such as transport, housing, health, education, leisure, communication and hotels and
catering, crossed 40% of private final consumption expenditure. The Indian population is experiencing a shift
from low income to middle income groups. The middle class is willing and able to spend on discretionary areas
and consumer services such as healthcare, education, recreational activities, personal products and services. The
increase in per capita income of the growing middle class leading to an increase in urbanisation. The urban
population of India is expected to increase to 35% of the population in 2020 from 31% of the population in
2010.

Approximately 6% of Indian households belong to the high income group and have been categorised as
“Affluent”. Approximately 14% of households belong to a category called “Aspirers” who have an annual
income between ₹ 0.35 million and ₹ 0.85 million. Approximately, 30% of Indian households are classified as
“Next Billion” who have an annual income of between ₹ 0.15 million and ₹ 0.35 million. The table below
illustrates the income structure in India:
The Indian urban population is expected to increase and is expected to lead to an increase in spending on
discretionary areas and consumer services. Between 2010 and 2020, the average household income is expected
to triple. By 2020, more than one-third of the Indian population is expected to reach the “Aspirer” class. By
2020, the “Strugglers” class will decrease to 28% from 50% in 2010. With an increasing number of nuclear
families in India, households are becoming less traditional and are spending more per capita. In 2010, the share
of nuclear households increased to 66% from 61% in 2006. Generally, the per capita spending of nuclear
families, including of leisure activities, is between 20% and 50% higher than traditional joint families in similar
household income groups.

The chart below illustrates the various changes in household categories and the corresponding consumption
expenditure in India for the periods indicated:
100
Rs. 240 million
Rs. 285 million
The chart below illustrates the current split of consumption expenditure for certain household categories in
India:
A spend of 2% of annual household income on activities such as leisure, picnics and holidays, translates to
spend of ₹ 5,000 per annum (for households with annual income of ₹ 0.25 million) to ₹ 20,000 per annum (for
household with annual income of ₹ 1 million).
Thus, as illustrated above, a combination of factors such as a growing middle class, rapid urbanisation and an
increase in nuclear families in metropolitans areas/cities which is also extending to smaller towns, is resulting in
an increase in discretionary spending and consumer services such as healthcare, outdoor recreation, education,
consumer durables and communication.

Overview of the Global Parks Industry
For the purposes of this section, “Parks” refer to amusement parks, including theme parks and water parks.
Development of the Global Parks Industry
The Parks industry formally started in Canada and the United States in the 1950’s. The timeline below illustrates
the evolution of the global Parks industry:
(Source: IMaCS Report)
Different Formats of Parks
As the Parks industry developed and adapted, different formats came into existence. The Parks formats are
broadly classified as amusement parks, theme parks and water parks. The Parks industry attracts all age groups
and provides attractions ranging from thrill rides to children’s rides, to food and a variety of other entertainment.
Amusement parks are defined by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions as “a large,
high-profile attraction that offers guests a complex of rides, food services and games”. The wide variety and
number of rides, entertainment areas and attractions aim to enhance the experience of the customer.
A theme park is defined as a park where the attractions have a unique setting or rides with specific themes.
Theme parks are often large format parks, offering state-of-the-art, high-end technology oriented theme based
attractions. A typical theme park is equipped with themed family rides including thrill rides, train rides and
roller-coasters.
A water park attracts visitors by offering water-based activities. Water parks frequently feature immersion
pools, tanning and relaxing areas, retail sales areas and food and beverage services. Most water parks offer
water slides as well.
The Size of the Global Parks Industry
There are more than 800 Parks in the world with annual attendance of over 600 million visitors per year. In the
United States, there are more than 400 Parks, with annual attendance of approximately 300 million visitors. In
Europe, there are approximately 330 Parks, with approximately 165 million visitors a year.
103
Despite the recent economic downturn, attendance at theme parks has increased. Between 2007 and 2010,
attendance rates at the 25 largest theme parks worldwide remained stable, increasing from 187.6 million in 2007
to 189.1 million in 2010. Attendance at the 25 largest theme parks worldwide increased by 1.9% in 2010, 3.8%
in 2011, 5.2% in 2012 and 4.3% in 2013 to reach 214.7 million visitors. Attendance at the top theme parks in
Asia has also shown increases in the recent periods.
Since 2007, attendance at water parks has increased, despite the global economic crisis. Attendance at the
largest 20 water parks in the world increased from 19.4 million in 2007 to 26.9 million in 2013 at a growth rate
of 5.6% year on year.

In 2012, the global Parks industry, in terms of revenue, was estimated at US$28 billion. In 2015, this is expected
to reach US$29.5 billion and by 2017 it is expected to reach US$32 billion. The Parks industry in regions such
as North America and Europe is highly saturated and matured. The United States and Europe have dominated
the industry since its inception. However, Asia now has nine of the top 25 amusement and theme parks in East
Asia. The importance of Asia is expected to increase with opening of Shanghai Disney in 2015. Asia also has
half of the top 20 water parks. In Asia, Japan and South Korea are showing signs of maturity and saturation
whereas markets in India, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia are still experiencing fast growth.
Growth Trends of Global Parks
Between 2007 and 2010, the Parks industry remained stagnant and exhibited marginal growth due to the global
economic conditions. Since 2010, the Parks industry has started to grow. The industry in Asia is growing
quickly with several new Parks being developed. The information below discusses the industry growth trends
from 2007 to 2013:
104
Footfall. Global footfall increased by 4.3% to 214.7 million in 2013 from 205.9 million in 2012. Large format
parks have visitors in excess of eight to nine million per year. The table below illustrates attendance at select

Five of the Parks among the top 25 Parks globally had an increase of over 10% attendance from the previous
year. The overall increase in footfall is attributed to a recovery in the global economy, increased investment in
rides and entertainment and the relevant location of the Parks. In 2013, major Parks in North America, Europe
and Asia companies had a successful year. Attendance remained strong in Asia and North America, with
attendance in Asia Pacific at 7.5% and North America at 2.7% growth. Attendance rates in Europe remained
stable in 2013.
Parks that have invested in infrastructure, new rides or new entertainment concepts have experienced an
increase in footfall. Parks in the United States invested in newer rides and attractions to increase footfall. Parks
in Europe invested in rides and created new entertainment concepts which generated revenue in the off seasons
as well. Parks in Asia aimed to increase their operating space and presence globally. The following table sets out

Ticket Prices. In 2014, ticket prices remained constant or increased marginally at Parks in the United States and
Europe. In Asia, ticket prices experienced a higher increase. An increase in ticket prices in Asia can be
attributed to large local populations, large number of tourists and an increase in international standard rides and
attractions offered in these Parks. The table below illustrates ticket prices for certain Indian and Asian Parks:

Integrated Resorts. The concept of integrated resorts which include Parks, retail, hospitality, casinos and
cultural facilities are becoming increasingly popular in Asia. This is in line with and a further development of
what Parks in Europe and the United States have been offering. The new additions are based on a cross
subsidisation model with large cash flows from casinos supporting cultural facilities, which have a lower cash
flow.
Global Economy. The entertainment industry was affected by the economic downturn of 2008 which continued
until 2010 in the United States and is still visible in Europe. Asia has shown the fastest growth in footfall for
Parks. Several leading international and domestic operators have shown strong growth in 2013. The Asian
markets, led by China and India, with growing economies and an expanding middle class are expected to be the
high growth markets for the Parks industry in the medium to long-term.
The Americas Markets
In 2008 and 2009, the United States experienced difficulties with the recession, which affected the attendance
numbers for Parks. In 2010, the Parks industry started to recover. Currently, 11 of the top 25 amusement and
theme parks in the world are situated in the United States. Approximately 135.1 million visitors were recorded
at the top 20 Parks in the United States in 2013 in comparison to 131.6 million in 2011. Economic recovery, the
introduction of new rides and competitive pricing resulted in this increase. In 2013, annual footfall at water
parks decreased by 2.3% to 15.0 million visitors from 15.4 million visitors in 2012.
The Asia Market
Footfall at the top 20 theme parks in Asia Pacific has increased by approximately 7.5%. Overall, the top 20
Parks in Asia recorded a footfall of 116.8 million in comparison to 135.1 million in the United States.
Attendance at water parks in Asia surpassed that in North America. In 2013, 17.0 million visitors visited water
parks in Asia. In 2013, 15.0 million visitors visited water parks in the United States. The table below illustrates

Peripheral Infrastructure
Parks invest in peripheral infrastructure such as hotels, F&B establishments and retail areas including
merchandise stalls to diversify the revenue composition. Longer stays and enhanced customer experience
contribute towards increasing avenues for the generation of park revenues. Hotels are the main peripheral
developments around Parks. They help to convert one day outings into longer holiday experiences.

movable carts accounting for nearly half of retail operations.
Indian Parks Industry
For the purposes of this section, “Parks” refer to amusement parks, including theme parks and water parks.
Overview of the Indian Parks Industry
The Indian Parks industry is in its nascent stage and is developing at a rapid pace. As of January 2015, there are
approximately 150 Parks in India. With a population of over 1.21 billion people, the ratio of Parks to people is
very small in India. In contrast, the United States with a population of approximately 313 million has over 400
Parks. Only 10.0% to 15.0% of the Parks in India are classified as large parks.
India has a growing middle class with access to increased disposable incomes and greater propensity to spend on
leisure activities. Approximately more than 40.0% of the Indian population is under the age of 25. This age
group forms a large potential customer- base for Parks.
The size of the Indian Parks industry is estimated at ₹ 25 billion to ₹ 30 billion, in terms of revenue, with an
estimated annual footfall of over 50 million, and the industry has grown between 20.0% and 25.0% over the last
five years. The Parks industry in India is expected to grow to a total size of approximately ₹ 50 billion to ₹ 60
billion over the next five years, in terms of revenue.
Key Amusement Park Operators in India
The Indian Parks industry comprises more than 150 operational small, medium and large Parks, with only
10.0% to 15.0% classified as large Parks. The scale of Parks in India is set out in the table below:

Certain Key Features of the Indian Amusement Park Industry
Ticket Prices. Ticket prices in India are starting to increase to align with international pricing patterns. Most
Parks in India offer a single pay ticket with some parks offering pay-as-you-go tickets as well. Ticket prices at
leading Parks range between ₹ 600 and ₹ 1,000 per adult. Most Parks offer 15.0% to 20.0% discounts for
children. Some Parks also offer discounts ranging from 10.0% to 15.0% to senior citizens.
Revenue Mix. International Parks typically generate around 50.0% of revenue from admission tickets. Indian
Parks generate up to 75.0% to 80.0% of revenue from admission tickets. The share of revenue from F&B and
retail and merchandise sales in India is small. Indian guests tend not to spend much when inside the park and
108
therefore, the admissions ticket represents the maximum share of spend. However, due to an increase in
disposable income, improving lifestyle and an increase in nuclear families, the in-park spending is expected to
increase in the short to medium term. The chart below illustrates the typical revenue break up of Parks in India
with a comparison with international Parks:

Peripheral Infrastructure. Parks in India are still in the early stages of development. Most of the revenue for
Indian Parks is attributable to admission tickets. Parks in Europe and the United States generate significant
revenue from hotels, as trips to Parks tend to be considered as weekend getaways or holiday destinations. In
India, the concept of a Park vacation is still not popular. The development of hotels around Parks in India may
promote the concept of Park vacations.
Growth Drivers
The major growth drivers for the Parks industry in India include the following:
Urbanisation
As a result of rapid urbanisation, more people in India are looking for entertainment and leisure options.
Currently, many Indian cities have limited entertainment options, especially outdoor options, to offer to
consumers. Parks could to cater to this growing consumer segment.
Gross Domestic Product and Income Growth
More families are prepared to spend money on leisure activities. As the Indian economy grows and industry
models in the United States and Europe are replicated, Parks will be able to market themselves as weekend
getaways.
Increase in the Number of Nuclear Families
The number of nuclear households in India increased from 61.0% in 2006 to 66.0% in 2010. As a result,
households are spending more on a per capita basis, which may also lead to an increase in discretionary
spending. Typically, per capita spending of nuclear families is between 20% and 50% higher than traditional
joint families in similar household income groups. Spending is predominantly on clothing, housing, education
and leisure activities.
Increase in Tourism
The increase in domestic tourism in India is a strong growth driver. Domestic vacations are becoming more
appealing to the Indian population because of the increased exchange rate fluctuations associated with overseas
travel and an increasing middle class population. There has been a continuous increase in domestic tourism in
India, with the number of domestic tourist visitors increasing from 159.88 million visitors in 1997 to 1,145.28
million in 2013. (Source: India Tourism Statistics at a Glance 2013, available at
http://tourism.gov.in/writereaddata/ CMSPagePicture/file/marketresearch/Incredible%20India%20final%20217-2014%20english.pdf)
Investment Trends
109
Over the last five years, the Indian leisure industry is estimated to have increased between 20.0% and 25.0% in
terms of overall revenue. Malls are the primary entertainment destinations in Indian cities. The top five malls by
footfall recorded over 117 million visitors. Parks in India are well positioned to attract demand from this
customer segment.
Government Policy and Regulatory Developments
Various state governments are focusing their attention on attracting tourism to increase state revenues. As a
result of this focus, various incentive schemes have been developed by many state governments.
The Government of Maharashtra has developed a policy to increase tourism. The policy offers benefits such as:

electricity duty levied at industrial rates for the respective period;

total exemption from property tax and non-agricultural tax for all tourism projects run or owned by the
Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation;

industrial rates for water rates/tariffs; and

Property tax charged at residential rates.
In 2010, the Government of Andhra Pradesh announced the Andhra Pradesh Tourism Policy 2010, which aims
to increase the involvement of the private sector in the development of tourist destinations in the state. The
tourism projects covered by this policy include amusement parks, resorts and convention centres. This policy
offers benefits such as subsidies on capital investment, reimbursement of stamp duty and transfer fee in respect
of land transactions, reimbursement of value added and luxury taxes and energy incentives in the form of
reimbursement of a portion of energy costs.
Also, see the section “Regulations and Policies” on page 133.
Barriers to Entry
Land Acquisition and Red Tape
One of the biggest challenges for new projects is land acquisition. Single window clearances are not easily
available, thereby making the entry process cumbersome. Individual states have laid down directives in their
tourism policy to provide support to projects, which will help in encouraging tourism.
Capital Intensive Business
Parks require regular investment in infrastructure and rides and attractions. Addition of rides and attractions is
necessary for a Park to be able to sustain a growing footfall.

OUR BUSINESS
Overview
We own and operate, Imagica – The Theme Park, which is one of the leading theme parks in India. Our theme
park features a diverse variety of rides and attractions of international standards, food and beverages (“F&B”)
outlets and retail and merchandise shops, designed to appeal to a broad demography of the Indian populace,
delivering memorable experiences, with a strong value proposition. Imagica – The Theme Park, is a part of
Adlabs Mumbai, a ‘one-stop’ entertainment destination that we offer at this location. Adlabs Mumbai also
includes Aquamagica, a water park, which became fully operational on October 1, 2014, and a family hotel,
Novotel Imagica Khopoli, the first phase of which is expected to be completed by March 2015. Adlabs Mumbai,
spread over an aggregate area of approximately 132 acres, is located at Khalapur, which is 74 kilometres from
Mumbai, off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway.
Imagica – The Theme Park is a one-of-a-kind offering in India and currently has 25 rides and attractions, which
are spread over six theme-based zones. Our marquee offerings include Rajasaurus River Adventure, a boat ride
offering our guests a peek into the pre-historic habitats of dinosaurs, Wrath of the Gods, a VFX show based on
an archaeological discovery of an ancient Indian civilisation, Nitro, which we believe is India’s largest roller
coaster, I for India, a simulated helicopter ride over various sights and attractions across India and Mr. India –
the Ride, a simulated ride based on the popular Bollywood movie, Mr. India. We also offer entertainment
through live performances by acrobats, magicians, dancers, musicians and other artists throughout the day in
various parts of our theme park.
In Imagica – The Theme Park, we own and operate an array of F&B outlets, including Roberto’s Food Coaster,
a multi-cuisine food court, which also has a separate Jain restaurant, Red Bonnet, an American diner-styled
restaurant, Imagica Capital, an Indian buffet restaurant which serves cuisines from across the country, Zeze, a
bar and grill which is designed as an African Zulu village and Arrmada, a cafe and bar modelled as a ship,
which offers panoramic views of the entire theme park, as well as several kiosks spread across the theme park.
Our retail and merchandise offerings provide our guests an opportunity to memorialise their experiences at the
theme park by purchasing products such as toys, apparel, bags, caps and commemorative mementos and
photographs, which carry the ‘Imagica’ brand or are based on one of the rides or attractions in our theme park.
We also retail candies, chocolates and other utilities such as hats and sunglasses. While we largely retail through
our six stores and several kiosks inside our theme park, we have recently launched our products on ours as well
as third party websites and intend to expand the sales and distribution network of our retail and merchandise
operations.
Imagica – The Theme Park, became fully operational on November 1, 2013. For a period of approximately six
months prior to November 1, 2013, some of the rides and attractions in our theme park were open to the public.
The total number of guests hosted at our theme park for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014 was
912,061. We hosted 11,933 guests on December 20, 2013, the highest number of guests hosted by us in a day
since our theme park became fully operational.
Aquamagica, our water park located adjacent to our theme park, became fully operational on October 1, 2014.
For a period of six days prior to October 1, 2014, some of the rides and attractions in our water park were open
to the public. It offers 14 kinds of water slides and wave pools, including: Zip Zap Zoom, a high-speed mat racer
that moves through enclosed looping aqua tubes, Loopy Woopy, a ride that comprises a launch capsule which is
controlled by a trap door, leading to a steep vertical drop of 72 feet, Screamer, which offers a series of twists,
turns and oscillations through “rattles” which change shape in alignment with the different lengths of cylinders,
and Twisty Turvy, a water coaster with drops and curves. It also offers water-based entertainment such as a
beach front, waterfalls, cabanas and comprises separate family play areas, kids play zones and toddlers play
equipment. Our water park has a separate admission ticket and a separate entrance from our theme park.
Our objective is to take advantage of cross selling opportunities offered by these two different entertainment
experiences. We intend to position Aquamagica as a destination for young party-goers and host Bollywood and
electronic dance music events where popular Indian and international artists and DJs perform at our
‘#gowiththeflow’ weekend events. For the period commencing on September 25, 2014, when some of the rides
and attractions were open to the public, up to December 31, 2014, the total number of guests hosted at our water
park was 90,940.
In Aquamagica, our F&B offerings are primarily designed as ‘grab and go’ options, which we believe caters to
the preferences of customers enjoying water-based entertainment in the park. In addition to a Ammos, a street-
111
[10046556_v9] 0029910 /10999/ Feb 3, 2015
styled, dine-in, multi-cuisine food court, our other outlets include Sun Beatz – Pizzeria, Labanese & Bar, located
next to the wave pool, Red Bonet Express, a classic quick-service American Diner, Cones, which offers a
variety of ice-creams and sundaes, Sandy Sipss, which offers juices, shakes and smoothies and Salty’s – Snacks
& Rolls, which offers a range of rolls which can be picked up on-the-go. We also have a variety of self-serving
kiosks with a diverse range of express meals, including burgers, pizzas, Greek and Lebanese wraps and rolls, hot
dogs and Mumbai street food. Our retail and merchandise operations inside our water park are primarily
structured to offer a variety of swimwear and beachwear options to our guests, including an Aquamagicabranded line of swimwear across various price points and a range of women’s clothing. We also offer utility
products and toys that our guests are likely to use in a water park.
The first phase of our proposed 287 key hotel, to be called Novotel Imagica Khopoli, comprising 116 keys, is
expected to be completed by March 2015 and will include facilities such as banquet halls, conference rooms,
specialty restaurants, a gourmet bar, recreation areas, a swimming pool, a spa, a kids’ activity centre and a
fitness centre to cater to varying entertainment requirements of our guests. We have entered into a hotel
management agreement with AAPC India Hotel Management Private Limited (“AAPC”), a company belonging
to the Accor Group, which operates several global hotel chains, to manage and operate our hotel, under the
name Novotel Imagica Khopoli. We have also entered into a hotel consultancy service agreement with AAPC
for certain consultancy and designing services.
We have also entered into a memorandum of understanding with ACME Entertainment, which will
conceptualize, construct, install, erect and run on a build, own, operate and transfer basis, a snow park at Adlabs
Mumbai and share a portion of ticket sales for the snow park with us. With addition of the water park, the soonto-be-launched hotel and the snow park, we believe we will be able to enhance guest experience at Adlabs
Mumbai and position Adlabs Mumbai as a wholesome entertainment destination.
Our promoter, Mr. Manmohan Shetty, has more than three decades of experience in the Indian media and
entertainment industry. Mr. Shetty is the former promoter of Adlabs Films Limited, one of India’s largest
entertainment companies.
For the financial year ended March 31, 2014, our total income and our loss after tax was ₹ 1,069.18 million and
₹ 524.82 million, respectively. Our revenue from the sale of admission tickets, which was for a period of five
months from November 1, 2013 (when our theme park became fully operational) to March 31, 2014, from our
F&B operations and from our retail and merchandise operations was ₹ 712.88 million, ₹ 240.21 million and ₹
63.82 million, respectively. For the six months ended September 30, 2014, our total income and our loss after
tax was ₹ 733.25 million and ₹ 535.29 million, respectively. Our revenue from the sale of admission tickets,
from our F&B operations and from our retail and merchandise operations for the six months ended September
30, 2014 was ₹ 553.82 million, ₹ 119.80 million and ₹ 38.86 million, respectively.
Our Competitive Strengths
Our primary competitive strengths are set out below:
Uniquely Positioned to Capitalise on the Increasing Propensity of Indians to Spend on Entertainment
Favourable macroeconomic and demographic factors such as economic growth, rising disposable income, a
growing young population, an expanding middle class and rapid urbanisation have resulted in the Indian
population spending more on entertainment. With the rise in education levels and exposure to international
trends, Indian consumers are willing to pay a premium for quality entertainment. We believe that a wellexecuted parks project will cater to the growing interest in quality entertainment.
Adlabs Mumbai has been designed to provide a wholesome, day-long and ‘value for money’ entertainment
option for guests. We offer entertainment options for all age groups through a variety of rides and attractions,
which we believe are comparable to and provide the international standards of experience that leading theme
parks and water parks offer globally. Our offerings are also customised to Indian tastes. This positions Adlabs
Mumbai to capitalise on the increasing number of Indian customers spending on good-quality entertainment.
Further, our ability to provide quality entertainment at one destination will be enhanced with the launch of our
hotel and the snow park, enabling us to attract more guests.
Strategically Located in an Attractive Catchment Area
Adlabs Mumbai is located off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. Currently, we attract guests primarily from
112
Mumbai, Pune and the rest of Maharashtra and Gujarat, which are some of the more economically developed
areas in India. For example, the per capita income of Mumbai and Pune was ₹ 152,000 and ₹ 141,000,
respectively, which are significantly higher than the national average. (Source: Indian Amusement Parks
Industry Report, dated January 2015, by ICRA Management Consulting Services Limited and The World Bank,
available at: http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.PCAP.CD) Mumbai is the most populous city in
India and one of the most populous cities in the world. Along with the neighbouring urban areas such as Navi
Mumbai and Thane, it is one of the most populous urban regions in the world. Mumbai and Pune also have a
large student and youth population and benefit from a large number of domestic and international tourists. In
addition, with a large base of corporates in this region, we have the ability to market Adlabs Mumbai as a venue
for meetings, off-sites and other corporate events.
We also have the ability to attract pan-India guests due to the proximity and the connectivity of Adlabs Mumbai
to Mumbai and Pune through the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. Adlabs Mumbai is 46 kilometres from Panvel,
Navi Mumbai and is one to two hours drive from most suburbs of Mumbai and from Pune, making it easily
accessible for guests from Mumbai, Pune and the rest of Maharashtra and for other tourists accessing our parks
through one of these cities. Mumbai is well connected to other large cities in India by air, road and rail with
multiple flight options in a day. In addition, Lonavala, which is 25 kilometres away from Adlabs Mumbai, is a
very popular weekend destination for the customer base in this region and we believe that we will be able to
attract many of such travellers to Adlabs Mumbai.
Further, Adlabs Mumbai is located in an area that experiences suitable weather throughout the year to spend a
day outdoors. In addition, the majority of our rides, attractions and queuing and waiting areas in our parks are
covered to avoid any inconvenience during the monsoon season.
Rides and Attractions of International Quality Standards which are Customised to Indian Tastes and
Preferences
Our parks are attractively themed and deliver high-quality entertainment, aesthetic appeal, shopping and dining
options. Our theme park rides and attractions, such as our popular attractions, Wrath of the Gods, I for India and
Mr. India – the Ride, have been designed in accordance with international quality standards and customised to
appeal to the tastes and preferences of Indian customers. Our water-park rides and attractions are designed to
cater to the requirements of thrill-seekers based on a ‘#gowiththeflow’ theme. We believe that we have a large
number of rides and attractions of various genres to keep our guests from different age groups and with varying
tastes and preferences engaged for an entire day. Our offerings include, high-speed roller coasters, VFX shows
for an enhanced visual experience, indoor attractions such as a 360 degrees cinema, a number of rides for
children, a thrill based vertical-drop for young adults and mythology based immersive experiences consisting of
live theatre, special effects and multimedia presentations for the entire family. Our water-park offerings include
a 72-feet plunge in water, several kinds of slides and a wave pool.
We engaged Peter Smulders of Attractions International, an internationally acclaimed design consultant for
entertainment destinations, to conceptualise and design our theme park. The rides and attractions for our theme
park have been designed by and sourced from global industry leaders such as Bolliger & Mabillard Inc.,
Zamperla Asia Pacific Inc., Sally Industries Inc., E2M Technologies B.V. and Santec Fabricators (India) Private
Limited, which is a part of the Sanderson Group. The water slides and equipment in our water park have been
sourced from global industry leaders such as Whitewater West Industries Limited, Neptune Benson (Defender
Water Filtration Systems) and Polin Dis Tic. Ltd. Sti. Our consultants and vendors have worked with many of
the leading theme and water parks across the world, thus allowing us to leverage their expertise in customising
or creating the rides and attractions of international quality standards for Indian requirements. Our theme park
rides and attractions which are based on Indian mythology, Bollywood and other popular themes, allow us to
develop an emotional connect with our guests. We also follow high levels of park security and safety standards
to offer a safe and injury free environment for our guests to enjoy the parks.
Competitive Advantage through Entry Barriers
We believe that we have the ability to leverage the ‘first-mover advantage’ through Adlabs Mumbai. There are
significant barriers to entry into the business of theme and water parks in India and it is difficult to replicate a
project of similar scale and size in our catchment area. Among the most important of these barriers is the need
for significant capital expenditure to set up theme and water parks, the difficulty to identify and purchase large
and suitable parcels of land on commercially viable terms and the long lead-time from the conceptualisation to
the launch of rides and attractions. We believe that our location off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway, the large
parcel of land owned by us, our rides and attractions of international quality and standards and our qualified
113
management and operations team provide us with a significant competitive advantage over any new park in this
region. In addition, we believe that through the various rides and attractions we have developed at Imagica –
The Theme Park, we have created our own intellectual property and know-how, such as our popular attractions,
Mr. India – The Ride, I for India and Wrath of the Gods that further enhances the barriers of entry for our
competitors.
Well-positioned Brand and Marketing Focus
In our short operational history, we believe that we have been able to establish brand recognition in Mumbai,
Pune and the rest of Maharashtra and Gujarat markets. We believe that we have been able to achieve this
through a combination of factors:

Delivering superior visitor experiences in our parks through our diverse offerings of rides and
attractions and other entertainment options and thus, developing a brand recall through word of mouth
publicity. We have also actively focused on attracting school groups as we believe that school children
who visit our parks act as our brand ambassadors and have the potential of bringing the entire family
back on another visit;

Dynamic and attractive pricing strategy to coincide with various events, festivals, seasons and holidays
throughout the year;

Existing well-established position of the ‘Adlabs’ brand in the media and entertainment industry; and

Engaging with various target groups through focused marketing, consisting of regular electronic, print
and digital media campaigns and direct sales efforts.
Proven and Experienced Management Team and Execution Strength
Our senior management team, led by Manmohan Shetty, includes experienced media and entertainment,
marketing and consumer businesses executives, with an average tenure of more than 15 years in such industries.
Mr. Manmohan Shetty is a well known entrepreneur in the media and entertainment business in India and has
more than three decades of experience in consumer-facing entertainment businesses. He has also served on key
industry bodies in India, including as the Chairman of the National Film Development Corporation, set up by
the Government of India to promote cinema and he has also been the President of the Film and Television
Producers Guild of India. During Mr. Shetty’s association, Adlabs Films Limited launched many innovations in
the Indian film exhibition business, such as mutliplexes, the IMAX theatre and digital cinema business.
Our parks operations team comprises highly skilled and dedicated employees with wide ranging experience in
operations, product development, business development and marketing. Our Chief Operating Officer, Vincent
Pijnenburg is an experienced theme park executive with more than two decades of experience with small,
medium and large sized parks and family entertainment centres across the globe. Through the experience and
leadership of our management team we were able to complete the development of our parks in a timely manner
and within the estimated project cost. We believe that we will be able to leverage this experience in the ongoing
development of our hotel and the development of additional entertainment destinations in other locations.
Our Business Strategies
We aim to establish theme-based entertainment destinations of international standards across India through the
following primary business strategies:
Develop Adlabs Mumbai as an Integrated Holiday Destination
Currently, a significant majority of our guests are residents of our catchment area, Mumbai, Pune, rest of
Maharashtra and Gujarat who make day-trips to our theme park off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. With the
launch of our water park and our hotel, we intend to market Adlabs Mumbai as a multiple day holiday
destination and attract guests for a longer stay. We also intend to exploit the proximity of Adlabs Mumbai to
Lonavala and Khandala, which are popular hill stations, to attract tourists. We intend to offer various cost
promotion and combination packages of admission tickets to our parks and stay at our hotel to take advantage of
cross selling opportunities. In addition, we aim to market our facilities as a suitable venue for hosting wedding
receptions, parties, conferences and meetings and other corporate events. We have entered into a memorandum
of understanding for the development of an adventure-course tower, adjacent to our hotel as an additional
entertainment option for guests making a multi-day trip to our parks. Further, we have also entered into a
114
memorandum of understanding with ACME Entertainment for the development of a snow park at Adlabs
Mumbai.
Continue to Focus on Increasing the Number of Guests Hosted at our Parks
We plan to increase attendance at our parks through the following strategies:

Increasing awareness of our parks and our ‘Adlabs’, ‘Imagica’ and ‘Aquamagica’ brands through
effective media and marketing campaigns, aimed at various target groups including families, young
kids, college students and young professionals. We will also continue to reach out to a greater number
of schools and corporates for increasing attendance at our parks;

Offering a variety of ticket options and disciplined pricing and promotional strategies to coincide with
events and holidays throughout the year. We also aim to follow a dynamic pricing model which will
enable us to adjust admission prices for our parks based on expected demand and attract diverse
segments of our customer base;

By periodically introducing new attractions, differentiating experiences and enhancing service
offerings. We believe that word of mouth is our most important marketing tool and, therefore, our
primary business objective is to make the time spent by the guests in our parks as enjoyable as possible.
We specifically focus on entrance and security procedures, queue management, cleanliness, quick
availability of F&B products and retail merchandise to make the guests’ experiences as comfortable
and entertaining as possible; and

Focusing on sales and marketing initiatives in the secondary catchment areas, such as our print
campaign from time to time in major cities like Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Hyderabad and Jaipur, to
attract tourists visiting the Mumbai – Pune region.
Diversify our Revenue Streams
Sales of admission tickets comprised a significant portion of our total income for the financial year 2014
(income from the sale of admission ticket commenced on November 1, 2013) and the six months period
September 30, 2014. We intend to increase our non-ticketing revenue through the following strategies:

Focus on F&B and retail and merchandise operations by targeting the per capita spending of our guests.
We believe that by providing our guests additional and enhanced offerings at various price points, we
can increase spending in our parks. We will continue to innovate in our F&B offerings to cater to the
diverse preferences of our guests. For example, we recently started a Jain food restaurant and also
initiated the sale of alcoholic beverages in our theme park;

Monetise the crowd movement in our parks by offering sponsorship opportunities to advertisers for
special events, naming rights for our rides and attractions, partnering in destination advertising and
assisting in products and brand activations;

With the completion of our hotel, we intend to position Adlabs Mumbai as a destination for varying
customer requirements, including for entertainment, corporate meetings and off-sites and other events;

Promote Adlabs Mumbai as a venue for destination weddings with a variety of themes; and

Aim to develop an emotional connect with our guests through our brands and characters developed by
us, which we believe will provide us with opportunities to leverage our intellectual property portfolio,
and to develop new media and entertainment options and to increase the sale of consumer products, in
and outside Adlabs Mumbai.
Increase Profitability and Achieve Cost Optimisation
We believe that increased attendance at our parks and an increase in the per capita spending will allow us to
make our business more profitable because of the relatively fixed cost-base and the high operative leverage
involved in our business. We will continue to focus on F&B and retail and merchandise spending to improve our
operating margins. With the commencement of operations of our water park and the soon-to-be-launched hotel,
we will be able to offer more dynamic pricing to account for seasonal fluctuations in attendance. We also aim to
achieve better cost optimisation through economies of scale by measures such as company-wide and centralised
115
procurement and sourcing strategy and integrated marketing campaigns. In addition, we aim to benefit from
shared services such as security, ticketing, F&B and general administration of our parks.
Expand our Existing Operations and Foray into New Geographies in India
In addition to the ongoing development of our hotel, we aim to pursue other expansion opportunities at our
parks. We intend to add three to four rides and attractions over the next five years, including one major ride or
attraction every two years, at our parks. We intend to use the existing areas available inside our parks for these
new rides and attractions.
We also intend to set up integrated holiday destinations in other locations in India, either through parks owned
and operated by us or through a partnership or a franchise model. We have identified Hyderabad as a new
location to develop a new theme park and we are currently in the process of preparing a project development
plan. We will continue to seek to place our theme parks and water parks near each other, which will allow us to
operate with reduced overhead costs and create cross selling opportunities.
Further, we have also entered into a memorandum of understanding, dated July 1, 2013, for the purpose of
submitting bids to set up tourism-related projects in Gujarat.
Adlabs Mumbai
We commenced construction of Adlabs Mumbai in 2011 and we expect to complete this project in 2015, with
the first phase of our hotel expected to be completed by March 2015 and the balance in phases thereafter in
2015. Adlabs Mumbai comprises Imagica – The Theme Park, Aquamagica, our water park and our soon-to-belaunched, family hotel. We expect the total cost for the development of this project to be ₹ 16,504 million.
Location and Access
Adlabs Mumbai is located off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway, at Khalapur. It is well-connected by road and
railway to Mumbai, Pune and Nashik. The following map sets out the exact location of Adlabs Mumbai with
connections to the catchment area that it seeks to service:
Adlabs Mumbai is located at a distance of approximately three and a half kilometres from the first exit after the
first toll-plaza on the Mumbai – Pune Expressway. The driving distances to Adlabs Mumbai from the key cities

The nearest airport to Adlabs Mumbai is the Mumbai Domestic Airport in Santa Cruz, Mumbai, at a distance of
79 kilometres. The Pune airport is at a distance of 82 kilometres from Adlabs Mumbai. Adlabs Mumbai is one to
two hours drive from most suburbs of Mumbai and from Pune, making it easily accessible for guests from
Mumbai and Pune.
Transportation Services
We have partnered with bus operators to offer air-conditioned bus shuttle services from designated locations in
Mumbai and Pune. We have also partnered with car travel companies to provide home pick-up and drop-off
services for our customers in Mumbai, Pune and Lonavala. These bus and car travel and ticket packages can be
booked online or through our call centre.
Adlabs Mumbai is located approximately six kilometres from the Khopoli station, which is serviced regularly by
the Mumbai suburban train services operated by Central Railways. We provide free shuttle services to and from
the Khopoli station at designated intervals.
Park Capacities
Based on park capacity reports provided by theme and water parks industry consultants, Utopia Entertainment,
Inc. and Leisure Consultants FZ LLC, we estimate that the hourly capacity of our theme park and water park is
15,000 and 5,450, respectively. These capacities depend on several variables and assumptions, including:

Ride loading and unloading time and ride duration;

Size of queuing areas and waiting periods;

Demand for F&B services and turn-around time by F&B outlets;

Hours of operations; and

Pedestrian density in the common areas of the parks during normal and crowded periods.
Many of the factors, assumptions and variables involved in estimating these capacities are based on data that are
currently available and could be subject to variations over time.
Our Imagica Theme Park
Operating Hours
Our theme park operates between 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. It is designed as an ‘all-weather park’ and is open to our
guests throughout the year. We modify our operating hours depending on seasons and special occasions. 13 out
of our 25 rides and attractions and queuing and waiting areas are covered and we can operate all our rides and
attractions throughout the year, including during the monsoon season.
Layout
Our theme park is designed to provide a ‘journey around the world’ experience to our guests. There are six
theme zones with distinct attractions, area-design, landscaping, dining facilities, facades, interactive installations
and ambient music. These six theme zones are situated around a central lagoon and a ‘capital building’ which is
designed as a castle and houses one of our restaurants. The concept and design of our theme park was primarily
developed by design consultant Peter Smulders, CEO and founder of Attractions International, who has been
involved in the development of many theme parks and other entertainment projects throughout the world.
117
The following map sets out the illustrative layout of our theme park setting out the six theme zones:

Our 25 rides and attractions, developed in line with leading theme parks globally, have been designed and
adapted to appeal to Indian culture and sensibilities. Our objective is to develop a distinct identity for our theme
park through a mix of Indian characters, styles, stories, music and ambience. Some of our popular rides and
attractions are described below:
Rajasaurus River Adventure, is designed as a pre-historic boat ride offering our guests a peek into the habitats of
dinosaurs and provides an interaction with dinosaur machines, culminating in a water slide.
Wrath of the Gods, is a VFX show based on an archaeological discovery of an ancient Indian civilisation and is
designed as an immersive experience consisting of live theatre, wind, water and fire special effects and
multimedia presentations.
Nitro, is a floorless roller coaster which we believe is India’s largest roller coaster. This circuit ride consists of
2,800 feet of track length and reaches a maximum height of 132 feet. It goes through five inversions and loops.
Unlike some roller coasters, which allow the passengers to have their feet on the ground, this roller coaster is
designed to simulate a “flying chair”.
I for India, is a simulated aircraft ride over various sights and attractions across India. A film shot from a
helicopter is displayed on a 90 feet wide screen, while the guests experience flying over these landscapes from
seats raised 10, 20 and 30 feet over the theatre floor.
Mr India – the Ride, is an immersive film viewing experience, based on the popular Bollywood movie, Mr.
India. This show is designed to provide the guests with an experience of driving in Mr. India’s car and
participate in one of his adventures. While the animated film plays on the screen, the guests experience a bumpy
journey in the car.
Scream Machine, is a giant swing with simultaneous spinning motion, that rises to a maximum height of 148
feet above the ground and swings to a maximum steep angle of 120 degrees.
Salimgarh, is designed as a ride through a haunted fortress, where the guests’ train moves through dungeons and
torture rooms in search of a trapped princess.
Gold Rush Express, is designed as a roller-coaster ride through the old American West landscape and moves
through ravines and ranches and parlours and saloons with cowboys and pistol-wielding outlaws. This circuit
ride reaches a maximum height of 66 feet.
Deep Space, is a roller-coaster designed as a ride into outer space. It operates inside a dome, which is designed
to provide the guests with an experience of riding across galaxies past various stars, planets and meteors. This
circuit roller-coaster works on a linear synchronous motor magnetic launch system, which is a technology
designed to achieve high rates of speed in a short period of time, usually a few seconds. As such, unlike some
roller coasters, which make a slow first climb, this roller-coaster accelerates to high speed in the first few
seconds.

[10046556_v9] 0029910 /10999/ Feb 3, 2015
D2 Dare Drop, is a vertical free-fall from a height of 132 feet at a maximum speed of 73 kilometres per hour.
Cinema 360 - Prince of Dark Waters, a 360-degree film projected on the dome ceiling, with an area of 3,100
square feet. The film is projected using six individual projectors.
Tubbby Takes Off, is a merry-go-round for kids, which is designed as an adventure of a baby elephant, Tubbby,
a character developed by us. We seek to develop Tubbby as an Imagica brand, which the guests can relate to and
thus, purchase merchandise based on this character.
Alibaba Aur Chalis Chorr, based on a popular children’s tale, is designed as an interactive ride through the
kingdom of Gulabad in the hunt for the forty thieves. During this ride, the guests have the opportunity to shoot
illuminated targets with laser light guns.
Some of our other rides include, Wagon-O-O-Wheel, a mini Ferris wheel for kids, Splash Ahoy!, a boat ride
where guests can use water guns to shoot at the other boats in the reservoir, and Save the Pirate, a boat race for
kids designed as a rescue trip for the Pirate.
Food and Beverage
Our F&B operations aim to provide high quality, creative and memorable culinary experiences for our guests.
We use several formats to reach out to the guests in the theme park, including, food courts, restaurants, catering
carts and kiosks and vending machines. Our culinary team focuses on providing creative menu offerings that
appeal to our diverse guest base. All our F&B outlets are owned and operated by us.
Our key F&B outlets inside our theme park include:
Roberto’s Food Coaster, a multi-cuisine food court, serving cuisines such as Indian, Mexican, Italian and Pan
Asian and includes Roberto’s Jain Restaurant, which exclusively serves Jain food. This food court has been
styled as a circus tent where food is served by Roberto, a lion-cub chef, a character developed by us. This food
court has a capacity of 450 guests.
Red Bonnet, an American diner styled restaurant which showcases vintage cars, themed dining tables and sitting
area. It serves typical American diner offerings. This restaurant has a capacity of 350 guests.
Imagica Capital, an Indian buffet restaurant designed to give the guests a taste of different Indian flavours and
serves cuisines from across the country. This restaurant has a capacity of 350 guests.
Zeze, a bar and grill which is designed as a Zulu African village with masks, artefacts and exotic tribal paintings.
The menu at this outlet is based on a safari theme. This restaurant has a capacity of 350 guests.
Arrmada, a three-level cafe and bar modelled as a ship, which offers panoramic views of the central lagoon and
entire theme park. Offerings in this restaurant include freshly made sandwiches and salads. This restaurant has a
capacity of 100 guests.
Apart from these outlets, we also have many kiosks spread across the theme park, which serve items such as
popcorn, candy floss, hot dogs, soups, box meals, and ice cream. We also have three banquet halls with an
aggregate capacity of more than 1,200 guests. We use these banquet halls to service large corporate and school
groups.
While our menu offerings are designed to have broad appeal, they also cater to guests who desire healthy
options and those with special needs, such as Jain food. Through our all-day-dining offerings, we seek to deliver
convenience and value to our guests with numerous eating choices for one price. We have also obtained a
license to serve alcohol in certain designated outlets in our theme park.
Our F&B team consists of 244 employees, including a team of 11 trained chefs, as of December 31, 2014. Our
executive chef has more than a decade of experience in the hospitality industry.
Other Entertainment Inside Our Theme Park
We also offer entertainment through live performances by acrobats, magicians, dancers and other artists
throughout the day in various parts of the theme park.
120
We also have artists such as clowns, jugglers, stilt-walkers and actors dressed up as characters based on one of
our rides and attractions who move around the theme park to engage with guests, especially children. We
believe that such entertainment between the rides and attractions keep the guests longer in our theme park, thus
leading to an increase in F&B and retail purchases.
We have entered into an agreement with an event management service provider and entertainment content
provider to design and choreograph various live performances inside our theme park and to provide artists and
crew for such performances. We also host special live performances in our theme park from time to time as part
of our sales and marketing strategy to attract more guests to our theme park.
We have launched a parade of our theme park characters called the ‘Grand Imagica Parade’ which is performed
in the evenings. As part of this parade, performers accompanied by Imagica characters such as Tubbby, Roberto,
Rajasaurus and Mogambo move through our theme park. The parade includes themed-floats and performers
such as dancers, stilt-walkers, magicians and jugglers.
Our Aquamagica Water Park
Our water park, Aquamagica, became fully operational on October 1, 2014. Our water park has a separate
admission ticket and a separate entrance from our theme park. We intend to take advantage of cross selling
opportunities offered by these two different entertainment experiences. We believe that the water rides will
complement the ‘dry-rides’ in our theme park and will allow us to attract a greater number of guests during the
monsoon season and enhance Adlabs Mumbai’s position as an ‘all-weather entertainment destination’.
Operating Hours
Aquamagica operates between 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is designed as an ‘all-weather park’ and we can operate all
our rides and attractions throughout the year. We also modify our operating hours depending on seasons and
special occasions.
Layout
Our water park is located on a raised area above our theme park and is designed to provide panoramic views of
our theme park. Guests are able to access our water park through a gondola ride, the length of which is
approximately 218 metres. We have modelled our water park on a Mykonos theme with various structures
painted in white and blue tones. It is designed around four plazas leading to various rides and attractions.
121
The following map sets out the illustrative layout of our water park:
122
[10046556_v9] 0029910 /10999/ Feb 3, 2015
Our Rides and Attractions
Our water park offers 14 kinds of water slides and wave pools, including water loops, individual and family
slides, natural-light effect rides and other water-based entertainment, such as a beach front, waterfalls, cabanas
and separate family play areas, kids play zones and toddlers play equipment. Some of our key rides and
attractions in Aquamagica are described below:
Loopy Woopy, a ride that comprises a launch capsule which is controlled by a trap door, leading to a steep, nearvertical drop sliding into an inclined loop.
Screamer, a ride featuring “rattles” which change shape in alignment with the different lengths of cylinders,
allowing riders to experience completely different sensations since each rattle is longer than the last.
Twisty Turvy, a coaster with drops and curves that blasts riders uphill on water jets, launching them into the
‘Super Bowl’ with centrifugal forces, keeping them high on the wall for several turns before ending through an
enclosed flume into a splashdown pool.
Aqua Tube, a feet-first, high-speed slide that goes through a series of twists and turns.
Zip Zap Zoom, a six-lane, high-speed mat racer that sends riders through enclosed looping tubes. Riders can also
challenge each other and race down together through the enclosed flume section.
Wacky Wavess, an artificial wave pool, where sea-like waves are formed every minute.
Aqua Funnel, a ride that plummets guests into the core of the funnel where they experience four to five nearvertical oscillations before exiting the flume in the final plunge.
We also offer family-oriented rides and attractions, including Soakerz, a family raft ride, and the Pirate Bay, an
area of body and inner-tube slides with gentler speeds and slopes for younger children that also includes mini
slides, water toys and playful characters.
Food and Beverage
Our F&B offerings inside Aquamagica are primarily designed as ‘grab and go’ options and include:
Ammos, a food court that includes North Indian, Mexican, Oriental, Pan-Asian and Mumbai street-style cuisine.
Sun Beatz – Pizzeria, Labanese & Bar, a bar next to the wave pool where guests can have pizzas or Lebanese
snacks while sipping on cocktails or beer.
Red Bonet Express, a quick-service American diner that serves American food, including burgers, hotdogs,
Southern fried chicken, classic American shakes and smoothies.

toppings.
Sandy Sipss, offers freshly squeezed juices, shakes, smoothies and tropical mocktails all day long.
Salty’s – Snacks & Rolls, serves all kinds of rolls, from the Mumbaiya Frankie to a Mexican Burrito, along with
hot beverages to go.
In addition, we have movable carts with more grab-and-go F&B offerings suited to a water park. Options
include popcorn, candy floss, hotdogs, soups, box meals, nachos, pop eats, corn and golas.
Other Entertainment Inside Aquamagica
We offer earmarked areas inside our water park for private events and parties and our wave pool is designed to
host live performances. We intend to position Aquamagica as a destination for young party-goers and host
Bollywood and electronic dance music events where popular Indian and international artists and DJs perform at
our ‘#gowiththeflow’ weekend events.
123
Keyless Locker System
We offer a keyless electronic locker system, which allows guests to securely store their belongings while they
enjoy the water park.

We have partnered with manufacturers and consultants who specialise in theme and water parks to develop our
rides and attractions. Some of our vendors are international leaders in the creation, innovation, design,
engineering, and manufacture of amusement rides and have partnered with leading global theme and water

Park Security and Safety
We recognise park security and safety as one of our most important focus areas in ensuring the success of our
parks. Our park security and safety plan is based on three principles: being proactive, the utilisation of an
optimum combination of technology and manpower and meeting international standards on security and safety.
Some of the key features of our security and safety plan are set out below:
Security Agency: We have engaged one of the leading security solutions providers in India for our security
needs and have developed a security plan based on a study of threats and vulnerabilities. The scope of services
provided by our security solutions service provider includes the development of, setting up and operating the
security infrastructure in our parks, deploying security personnel and carrying out regular training for our
employees for security related issues, particularly emergency response situations.
Identified Perimeters and Zones: We have divided our parks into various layers with defined internal and
external perimeters for effective monitoring and response. We have deployed access control measures at the
identified entry and exit points to reduce trespassing and monitor crowd movement. We have also divided the
parks into various zones to facilitate effective emergency response, evacuation and deployment of resources and
manpower.
Command Centre: Our command centre has been planned as an integrated set-up, capable of monitoring and
controlling the management of the parks and responding to all circumstances which may have an adverse effect
on guest experiences. The functions of our command centre include:

control and monitor all access controls across our parks, including the entry and exit points and for our
rides and attractions;

monitor the 187 CCTVs installed across our parks;

coordinate the response to any situation that requires attention;

operate the public address system which is designed for effective communication for functions such as
crowd management;

handle lost and found requirements;
126

monitor the weather station for effective planning; and

coordinate and control the radio communication system among our guest relation executives, our
management and security personnel.
Security Equipments: Our security infrastructure consists of necessary equipments such as metal detectors,
explosive vapour and trace detectors, radio sets, forced entry resistant door system, panic buttons, hooters and
retractable barriers, which have been deployed at vantage points across our parks.
Safety Procedures: The most important aspect of our safety procedures is regular training and assessment of our
ride operators and attendants to prevent accidents or injuries resulting from unsafe acts and conditions. In
addition to monitoring for any hazard or unsafe condition, our ride operators carry out inspections at predesignated intervals and report any unsafe condition to our maintenance department for correction. We follow a
more detailed inspection and monitoring procedure for some of our critical rides and attractions, such as the
roller-coasters. We also engaged 49 qualified lifeguards, who are on duty during the operating hours of our
water park.
Fire and Medical Emergency Plan: We also have a comprehensive fire and medical emergency response plan.
We have installed smoke and heat detectors in our offices and indoor attractions and water sprinkler and fire
hydrant systems and fire extinguishers across our parks. In addition, we have a team of fire-men, sourced from
external vendor, stationed in the theme park throughout the operational hours. We have a medical centre in the
theme park, including a five-bed ward, which is staffed by a team of one doctor and eight nurses to respond to
any medical emergency in the theme park up to such time that the guests are moved to the nearby hospitals. We
have two ambulances which are deployed in the theme park throughout the operational hours.
Maintenance
Our maintenance team is responsible for the inspection, upkeep, repair and testing of our rides and attractions.
We have appointed a safety officer as a member of each of our theme park and water park management team to
supervise the maintenance and ride operations teams, and carry out regular audits and surprise inspections.
Every ride and attraction at our parks is inspected regularly, according to daily, weekly, monthly, and annual
schedules. Particularly, all rides are inspected daily by maintenance personnel before and after use by guests to
ensure their proper and safe operation. Our rides and attractions have been grouped in various clusters to ease
the maintenance process, which are in turn controlled by their respective cluster managers. We have formulated
detailed maintenance guidelines and checklists for each of our rides and attractions with the objective of
ensuring that the rides and attractions are operating within the manufacturer’s criteria and that maintenance is
conducted according to internal standards, industry best practice and standards, as well as the ride designer or
manufacturer’s specifications. Most of our rides and attractions are currently covered by the defect liability
warranty provided by our vendors at the time of the setting up of the rides and attractions. We are currently in
the process of installing a networked enterprise software system which will be used to plan and track all our
maintenance activities. We believe that this software will help us to schedule and request maintenance work,
track progress and manage costs of parts and materials. The maintenance system of some of our rides and
attractions is also linked over VPN to the respective vendors to ensure effective monitoring, data sharing and
resolution of issues, if any.
We also maintain an inventory of spare parts, especially critical items and consumables, the procurement of
which could involve a lead time, to avoid disruptions to our rides and attractions.
We work closely with our suppliers to train our employees from time to time. All ride maintenance personnel
are trained to perform their duties according to internal training processes, in addition to recognised industry
certification programs for maintenance activities.
Our infrastructure maintenance function comprises upkeep, repair, preventive maintenance and improvement of
the parks infrastructure. This function is staffed with a combination of external contractors and our employees.
We obtain safety certifications from our vendors stating that the rides and attractions installed at our parks have
been designed and manufactured in accordance with international standards such as the American Society for
Testing and Materials, or the ASTM standard, the European, or the EN standard or the Deutsches Institut für
Normung e.V., or the DIN standard. We have also engaged TUV SUD South Asia Pvt. Ltd., a leading global
technical services organisation to carry out inspection, testing and installations certifications for our rides and
attractions.
127
We also periodically engage the services of third-party maintenance audit agencies to inspect our maintenance
procedures. In May 2014, we engaged the services of a third party to perform such an audit and they concluded
that our maintenance practices and schedules were in compliance with the recommendations of each of our ride
manufacturers.
Retail and Merchandise
We offer guests the opportunity to capture memories through our retail and merchandise operations, consisting
of traditional retail shops and other sales platforms, as well as the sale of customised photos. Our merchandise
product offerings are aimed at exploiting the emotional connection of the theme park experiences, as well as
aligning our brand and developing characters based on these customer experiences. For example, in addition to
the ‘Imagica’ branded merchandise such as fridge magnets, key chains, bags, apparel, caps, coffee mugs, our
merchandise, such as soft toys and bags, is also based on some of the characters showcased in the theme park,
such as Tubbby, the baby elephant, Mogambo from the Mr. India movie and Roberto, the lion-cub chef.
Our retail and merchandise operations inside our water park offer a variety of merchandise products, including
swimwear and beachwear for men, women and children and an Aquamagica-branded line of swimwear with a
full range of offerings that include towels, caps, floats, flip flops and sippers. We also offer low-cost disposable
swimwear, utility products such as rash guards and toys that our guests are likely to use in a water park. We also
retail candies and utilities such as water fans, hats and sunglasses which are sourced from third parties.
We currently own and operate six retail stores inside our theme park and three retail stores inside our water
park. In addition, we aim to service our guests throughout their visit to our parks through mobile selling
channels such as kiosks and our employees at various strategic locations such as park entrances, queues for our
rides and attractions and our F&B outlets. Our retail business encompasses product design and
conceptualisation, sourcing, importing, logistics and visual presentation up to the point of sale. We engage
domestic and global manufacturers from time to time for the production of our merchandise.
We also offer real time photo through which guests can purchase visual memories of the time spent at the theme
park, including at the rides and attractions. We capture the moment through the use of various photography
processes and technologies and offer them for sale to our guests.
We continue to explore and develop our retail and merchandise operations to extend beyond the park visit with
online opportunities and to create more customised products. For example, we have recently launched our
products on ours as well as other third party websites. Our retail and merchandise team consists of 65 employees
and is led by an experienced professional who has worked for more than a decade in the retail industry.
Parking Facilities
We offer a parking area of 18 acres, which is very close to the entrance of the theme park. Our parking area has
capacity to accommodate approximately 3,000 cars and 75 buses. We have entered into a parking management
services agreement with a third party to provide the necessary manpower and required services for the
management of our parking space.
Our Hotel
Our 287 key family hotel, to be called Novotel Imagica Khopoli, is located adjacent to our parks and is currently
under construction. We currently estimate that 116 keys and the majority of the public facilities will be
completed by March 2015, with the balance becoming operational in phases thereafter in 2015. The hotel will
include a variety of rooms, including standard rooms, deluxe rooms and suites. The construction of the main
structure has been completed and we are currently carrying out the interior works. We have entered into a hotel
management agreement with AAPC, a company belonging to the Accor Group, which operates several global
hotel chains, to manage and operate our hotel. We have also entered into a hotel consultancy service agreement
with AAPC for certain consultancy and designing services.
Under the hotel management agreement, we have engaged AAPC as an agent to manage and operate the hotel
on our behalf for an initial term of 15 years from the date of opening of the hotel and receipt of its first paying
guest under the management of AAPC, which can be extended for two further 10-year terms by mutual consent.
We have agreed to pay a base fee based on the gross revenue and an incentive fee based on the gross operating
profit and gross revenue of our hotel. AAPC shall have all rights and authorities to operate our hotel, including
determining all policies and procedures. We shall employ all employees of the hotel, with the exception of the
general manager, who will be appointed by and will be an employee of AAPC or its affiliate, and all operating
128
expenses of the hotel will be borne by us.
AAPC shall provide services such as technical and IT assistance and services, central purchasing, staff training
and conferencing, marketing, business and sales promotions, publicity and public relations and all other Accor
group benefits, services and facilities, including any institutional advertising programmes. AAPC is required to
prepare an annual business plan for our approval, detailing operational and budget estimates for the following
fiscal year, and AAPC will operate our hotel in accordance with such business plan. We will have the right to
terminate the hotel management agreement under certain conditions, such as if the gross operating profit of our
hotel falls short of the gross operating profit estimated in the business plan.
Under the hotel consultancy service agreement, AAPC has agreed to advise us on the functionality, operational
feasibility and compliance with brand standards of our hotel during the design, construction and fit-out phases.
AAPC has also agreed to provide information on Accor brand standards and assist us with preparing the final
plans and specifications of our hotel through review and comment. AAPC shall also assist with appointing
contractors for the construction of our hotel and supervise such construction to ensure that it conforms to the
final plans and specifications.
Our hotel will include a variety of amenities such as banquet halls, conference rooms, specialty restaurants, a
gourmet bar, recreation areas, a swimming pool, a spa, a kids’ activity centre and a fitness centre. The rooms at
our hotel will also have other amenities such as, 24-hour in-room dining facility, LCD television, tea/coffee
maker and Wi-Fi connectivity. In addition to attracting guests who intend to spend their weekends and holidays
at our parks, we also intend to market our hotel as a venue for hosting wedding receptions, parties and other
corporate events and meetings.
Marketing, Publicity, Sales and Promotion
Our marketing strategy is broadly focussed on the three consumer classes which we believe comprise a
significant portion of our customer base – families with young kids, college students and young professionals
with no children. We design our marketing efforts based on an events and seasons calendar, which focuses on
festivals, holidays and other special occasions.
Our marketing and sales team comprises 26 employees and is headed by a professional who has more than a
decade of experience in marketing and sales operations.
Our direct marketing initiatives include English, as well as regional, newspapers, radio and TV advertisements
in the Mumbai, Pune, rest of Maharashtra and Gujarat markets and advertisement on outdoor sites, such as pole
kiosks, bus shelters, hoardings, gantries on the Mumbai – Pune Expressway, directional signage and branded
buses. While we advertise on a regular basis, we run focussed campaigns for specific events, such as the launch
of a park, launch of a specific ride or attraction, new festive or seasonal packages or special offers such as the
Independence Day packages. We also partner with leading newspapers for specific media and promotional
events. Our dedicated marketing teams also reach out to our potential customer base directly through personal
sales, kiosks and other promotional measures at college and school festivals and activities and corporate events.
Some of the events where we carried out such campaigns included, ‘Comic Con’ held in Mumbai, HT Shine HR
Conclave held in Mumbai and the Inter-School festival organised by Jamnabhai Narsee School, Mumbai. We
partner with television channels to film some of their shows at our theme and water parks, which we believe
adds to the appeal of our parks. Shows that have been shot at our park include V Day Trippin by Channel V,
Junior Master Chef by Star Plus and MTV Style Check. We also host photo shoots for leading magazines at our
theme and water parks to promote our media profile. In addition, we also participate in trade events from time to
time.
We believe that publicity through word of mouth is our most important marketing tool. For example, special
packages for bulk bookings made in advance by schools help us to connect with a bigger customer base. We
believe that school children who visit our theme park on such school trips act as our brand ambassadors and
bring the entire family back on another visit. To encourage such visits, from time to time, we also offer a free
ticket for the child who comes back with the family within a stipulated period.
We have a network of selling agents to engage travel agents and tour operators to sell our admission tickets and
packages across the country. Digital and social media form an important part of our marketing strategy. We
utilise our website, www.adlabsimagica.com, as a promotional tool and encourage guests to plan and book their
trip in advance after experiencing a virtual journey of our theme park. We also utilise the services of other web
enabled aggregators. We actively monitor reviews on sites such as Tripadvisor.com and aim to respond to all
129
comments made. We have an active Facebook page and Twitter handle to connect with our customer-base and
promote our brand and our offerings.
With the launch of our water park and our hotel, we also intend to offer various travel, stay and park packages
for a hassle free holiday experience.
Proposed Developments
In December 2012, one of our promoters, Thrill Park, entered into a shareholders’ agreement with Royale
Luxury Private Limited for the development of a theme park in Hyderabad. A special purpose vehicle, Royale
Thrill Ventures Private Limited (“RTVPL”) has been incorporated to develop the theme park. Under such
shareholder agreement, the parties have agreed to hold an equal shareholding in RTVPL. Currently, the parties
are in discussion in relation to the shareholding structure. Further, the parties also intend to enter into a joint
development arrangement with a third party who will contribute land required for the purpose of development of
this theme park. Thrill Park has also agreed to assign its rights to develop this theme park under this
shareholders agreement to our Company. We require the approval of our lenders to undertake this project. In
addition, we have advanced a sum of ₹ 125 million to RTVPL as an advance against equity. Currently, RTVPL
is in the process of finalising the project development plan and obtaining necessary approvals.
We have also entered into a memorandum of understanding, dated July 1, 2013, to form a consortium for the
purpose of submitting bids to Guj-Tour Development Company Limited, an undertaking of the Government of
Gujarat, for developing tourism-related projects in Gujarat.
We also intend to develop an adventure-course tower adjacent to our hotel as an additional entertainment option,
which we expect to complete by December 2015. We intend to offer half to one hour sessions of various
individual and team adventure activities such as wall-climbing and a giant swing.
We have also recently entered into a memorandum of understanding with ACME Entertainment, dated October
7, 2014, whereby ACME Entertainment will conceptualize, construct, install, erect and run a snow park at
Adlabs Mumbai. The snow-park will have a common ticketing facility with Adlabs Mumbai and will include an
entry section and waiting lounge where guests can relax and change into the gear for entering the snow area.
The snow area will be spread over approximately 16,000 square feet and will have snow fall and include slides,
ice sculptures and a dance floor. The snow park will also have F&B outlets and a souvenir shop. We expect
snow park to commence operations in the second half of 2016. Revenues generated from the sale of snow park
tickets will be shared between us and ACME Entertainment.
Accreditations and Recognitions
The Department of Tourism, Government of Maharashtra has recognised Adlabs Mumbai as a ‘mega tourism
project’. In addition, Adlabs Mumbai has also been granted an exemption from payment of entertainment tax for
a period of 10 years from the commencement of the operations in accordance with the Tourism Policy, 2006
issued by the Government of Maharashtra.
Competition
We believe that there are significant barriers to entry into the business of theme and water parks in India.
Among the most important of these barriers is the need for significant capital expenditure to set up a theme or
water park, the difficulty to identify and purchase large and suitable parcels of land at commercially viable
terms, the limited number of persons with the skills necessary to operate a theme and water park and the
importance of public recognition of an established brand name.
Visiting theme and water parks is a part of discretionary spending and is perceived to be a leisure activity.
Consequently, our business is sensitive to a number of factors that influence discretionary consumer spending.
In addition, we compete with other tourism and recreation activities, such as heritage tours, cinemas, dining out
and travel involving consumers’ discretionary expenditure. Adverse changes in factors affecting discretionary
consumer spending could reduce consumer demand for our services, resulting in a reduction in the number of
guests hosted by us.
While we believe that Imagica – The Theme Park is the only theme park in India, in the last few years,
metropolitan cities and major Tier I cities in India have seen many new amusement and water parks. Essel
World and Water Kingdom are the two amusement parks in Mumbai, Pune and the rest of Maharashtra. Some of
the other amusement parks in India include Wonderla in Bangalore, Wonderla in Kochi, Kingdom of Dreams in
130
Gurgaon and Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.
Utilities
We have an approval from the Maharashtra State Electrical Distribution Company Limited for the supply of a
maximum of 20.1 MW of electricity for Adlabs Mumbai. We have constructed and operate a 220 KVA substation next to our theme park to ensure an uninterrupted supply of electricity. We utilise diesel generators for
back up for the utilities, fire-fighting equipment and our F&B outlets.
We are permitted to draw up to 1.5 million litres of water per day from the nearby reservoir. We have also
constructed a reservoir with a capacity of 270 million litres of water per year adjacent to Adlabs Mumbai to
harvest rain water, supply Aquamagica for its daily usage and also recharge groundwater.
Human Resources
As of December 31, 2014, we had 1,248 employees, divided among the following functional lines:
Department
Senior Management
Technical
Park Operations (including Safety & Security)
F&B
Retail and Merchandise
Sales and Marketing
Finance, Human Resources, Administration and Back-office
Total

1,248
In addition, we have also outsourced our security and park cleaning functions to third parties who deploy their
personnel in our parks.
None of our employees are covered by collective bargaining agreements. We consider our relations with our
employees to be good. Our employees currently receive salaries and benefits which, we believe, are competitive
in the industry. In addition to recruiting employees who already have experience in their areas of focus, we
ensure that our employees are up-to-date with current trends in our industry and accomplish this by providing
professional training to employees at all levels.
We believe that a motivated and dedicated employee base is the key to our success in managing our parks and
has allowed us to provide a safe and exciting experience for our guests.
Intellectual Property
Through a permitted users license agreement dated November 25, 2013, Mr. Manmohan Shetty has granted us a
worldwide, non-exclusive license, with retrospective effect from January 14, 2010, to use the trademark and
related artistic work for the label “ADLABS” as part of our corporate name, domain name, our products and
services. The license agreement is valid for a period of 15 years from January 14, 2010.
The owners of intellectual property rights in relation to the title, design, characters, images, dialogues and music
for the Bollywood movie, Mr. India, have assigned these rights for perpetuity to our Company for use in our
attraction, Mr. India – The Ride, for a one-time fee.
We have also made applications in respect of intellectual property developed by us in our ordinary course of
business, including trademarks over logos and names of rides, attractions, F&B outlets and characters used for
our merchandise, under the relevant categories under the Trademarks Act, 1999. Some of the key logos that we
use are as follows:

Insurance
We maintain the following insurance policies subject to specified limits: (a) public liability policy to insure
payment arising out of legal liabilities including claimant’s costs, fees and expenses; (b) directors and officers
liability policy to insure against loss arising from any claim made against directors or officers of our Company;

Company Limited, the New India Assurance Company Limited, Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance Company Limited,
Bharti-AXA General Insurance, ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company Limited and L&T General
Insurance. There can be no assurance that our insurance coverage will be sufficient to cover the losses we may
incur. For further details in relation to risks associated with insurance policies of our Company, see the section
“Risk Factors – Our insurance coverage may not be adequate to cover all possible losses that we could suffer”
on page 26.
Corporate Social Responsibilities

including free day trips for children from nearby schools, offering employment opportunities and organising
medical camps.
Properties
Land
We own approximately 302 acres of land (the “AEL Land”) at Khopoli. The AEL Land comprises (i) land
aggregating to approximately 132 acres on which Adlabs Mumbai is located (the “Adlabs Mumbai Land”); and
(ii) approximately 170 acres of surplus land (the “AEL Surplus Land”). Adlabs Mumbai Land comprises of
approximately 114 acres of land which is presently under use (the “Project Land”) and 18 acres of surplus land
earmarked for future expansion (the “Surplus Project Land”). Since the Adlabs Mumbai Land was agricultural
in nature, our Company was required to obtain the following approvals prior to the acquisition and use of the
Adlabs Mumbai Land, as applicable:

the orders of the Directorate of Industries through the Development Commissioner (Industries),
Government of Maharashtra (the “DIC”) issued under section 63-1A of the Bombay Tenancy and
Agricultural Lands Act, 1948 (the “DIC Permission”); and

the orders for use of the private land for non-agricultural purposes issued under the Maharashtra Land
Revenue Code, 1966 (the “NA Orders”).
Our Company has obtained the DIC Permissions for Adlabs Mumbai Land and is therefore, permitted to own
such land. Further, our Company has obtained the NA Orders in relation to the Project Land and is therefore,
permitted to develop such land for setting up Adlabs Mumbai. Our Company intends to obtain the necessary NA
Orders in relation to the Surplus Project Land prior to using such land.
There is an arbitration proceeding pending relating to 65 acres of land which forms part of Adlabs Mumbai
Land. Further, our Company has received a notice from the Divisional Commissioner Office in relation to the
acquisition and use of the land by our Company pursuant to allegations made by certain individuals. See the
sections “Risk Factors – Land title in India can be uncertain and our Company may not be able to identify or
correct defects or irregularities in title to the land which it owns or intends to acquire” and “Outstanding
Litigation and Material Developments” on pages 32 and 33 and 277, respectively, for further details.
Walkwater Properties Private Limited (“Walkwater Properties”), which became our wholly-owned subsidiary
with effect from September 11, 2014, has agreed to the joint-development of a township project on the AEL
Surplus Land and it has applied to the Government of Maharashtra for an approval to develop a township
project on this parcel of land along with certain adjoining parcels of land owned by third parties. We intend to
enter into the relevant agreements with Walkwater Properties and other parties upon the receipt of the necessary
approvals.
132
Pursuant to a deed of conveyance, dated September 29, 2014, we transferred 137.33 acres of the AEL Surplus
Land to Walkwater Properties for a consideration of ₹ 1,057.57 million, subject to the existing mortgage in
favour of the security trustee for the Consortium Lenders and rights of the Consortium Lenders in respect of the
same. We are awaiting the consents required from the Consortium Lenders for the conclusion of this transaction.
See the section “Risk Factors – The township project proposed on the AEL Surplus Land may not materialise if
the required approvals are not received for transfer of AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties” on page 29
for further details.
We have also entered into an agreement, dated November 7, 2014, to sell the balance 32.58 acres of the AEL
Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties for a consideration of ₹ 273.71 million subject to the existing mortgage
in favour of the security trustee for the Consortium Lenders and rights of the Consortium Lenders in respect of
the same. This balance AEL Surplus Land was acquired by us under the DIC Permission. This conveyance will
be subject to the approval of the Consortium Lenders, the DIC and the FIPB. See the section “Risk Factors –
Our Company may not be able to transfer a portion of the AEL Surplus Land to Walkwater Properties if the
required approvals are not received” on page 30 for further details.

During the period ended September 30, 2014 the Company has changed its accounting policy for
recognizing revenue from sale of Open Pass/Gift Passes or Open Day Tickets – with all days validity
which are Non-Refundable in nature. During the year ended March 31, 2014 revenue from sale of such
Passes/Tickets was recognized when they were sold/ booked. The Company now recognizes the
revenue when Passes/ Ticket are utilized or expired. Management believes that such change will result
into more appropriate presentation of financial statements.

of the project agreements, such as agreements for installation of rides and attractions and construction

also trigger default provisions under the Common Loan Agreement.

a.
Changes in Accounting Policies
Change in Depreciation policy from Written Down Value Method to Straight Line
Method.
During the year ended March 31, 2014, the Company has change the method of depreciation
from Written down value method to Straight line method. The depreciation figures appearing
in the audited financial statements for the years ended March 31, 2013, 2012 and 2011 and for
the period ended March 31, 2010 have been restated standalone to provide for the impact in
each of the respective financial years due to the change in method of depreciation. The net
block of fixed assets has been accordingly changed in each of the financial years ending
March 31, 2013, 2012 and 2011 and for the period ended March 31, 2010 and also the
Depreciation amount in Profit and Loss statement for the year ended March 31, 2013.
Change in Revenue recognition policy for Open Pass, Gift Passes and Open Day Tickets
During the period ended September 30, 2014 the Company has changed its accounting policy
for recognizing revenue from sale of Open Pass/Gift Passes or Open Day Tickets – with all
days validity which are Non-Refundable in nature. During the year ended March 31, 2014
revenue from sale of such Passes/Tickets was recognized when they were sold/ booked. The
Company now recognizes the revenue when Passes/ Ticket are utilized or expired.
Management believes that such change will result into more appropriate presentation of
financial statements.

Presentation and disclosure of financial statements
During the period ended September 30, 2014, the Schedule III of the Companies Act, 2013,
had become applicable to the Company, for preparation and presentation of its financial
statements. Accordingly the Company has prepared the financial statements for the year ended
March 31, 2014 in accordance with Schedule III of the Companies Act, 2013. The adoption of
Schedule III of the Companies Act, 2013 does not impact recognition and measurement
principles followed for preparation of financial statements. However, it has significant impact
on presentation and disclosures made in the financial statements. The Company has also
reclassified the figures for the year ended March 31, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, and for the
period ended March 31, 2010 in accordance with the requirements of Schedule III.

Prior period items
(a)
Exchange Fluctuation on Long Term Borrowings
During the year ended March 31, 2013 the Company has booked an exchange gain of
Rs 3.72 million and has credited it to Profit and Loss Account under the head Other
Income. The Exchange fluctuation was arising on account of Reporting of Long
Term Borrowings.
As per para 46A of Accounting Standard -11 fluctuation arising on reporting of Long
Term Borrowings on foreign loans availed for acquisition of assets should be
added/deducted from cost of that particular asset, therefore company has reduced the
said amount from the Profit and Loss account and deducted from Block of Assets for
the year ended March 31, 2013. Therefore to the above extent Profit & Loss and Net
Block of the Company are adjusted.
(b)
Audit Fees and Interest on TDS
During the year ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 Company inadvertently transferred
Audit Fees and Interest on TDS to Pre-Operative Expenses. The above items have
been adjusted for restating and therefore the loss reported for the years ended March
31, 2012 and 2011 increased and Pre-Operative Expenses – Pending allocation
218
reduced by Rs 0.52 million and Rs 0.11 million respectively.
3.
Material regroupings
Appropriate adjustments have been made in the restated standalone financial statements of Assets and
Liabilities, Profits and Losses and Cash flows, wherever required, by reclassification of the
corresponding items of income, expenses, assets and liabilities, in order to bring them in line with the
regroupings as per the audited financials of the Company for the six months period ended September

as follows.
The Common Loan Agreement enable the lenders to cancel any outstanding commitments, accelerate the
repayment, exercise cross default provisions and enforce their security interests, including by invoking the
pledge, on the occurrence of events of default such as a breach of financial covenants, failure to obtain the
proper consents, failure to perfect security as specified and such other covenants that are not cured.
Payment default by Borrower/ Promoters under Finance Documents, Non Payment Default by Borrower/
Promoters under the Finance Documents, Payment default by Borrower under Project Documents, Non
Payment default by Borrower/ Promoters under the Project Documents, Non adherence to Financial
Covenants, Non compliance with reports/ observations of Rupee Lenders’ consultants, Cross Default,
Failure to obtain/ Termination/ Revocation, etc., of Approvals, Project abandonment, Court
Order/Government Actions, Security defaults, Supply of Misleading Information, Insolvency and Inability
to Pay Debts, Insurance (non insurance/under insurance), Sale, Disposal and Removal of Assets, Material
Adverse Litigations, Proceedings for Winding Up of Borrower, Proceedings for Winding Up of Promoter,
Illegality, Termination of Transaction Documents, Material Adverse Effect, Extra-Ordinary Circumstances,
Invalidity of Finance Documents, TRA Default, Borrower has failed to maintain the Management Control.
Further, in the event the Company has sufficient cash flows to service the loans, the lenders are entitled to
advance the loan repayment dates, in terms of the Common Loan Agreement. Further, any material breach
of the project agreements, such as agreements for installation of rides and attractions and construction
contracts, by AEL or their counter-parties that is not waived by the lenders or is otherwise not cured may
also trigger default provisions under the Common Loan Agreement.

Overview
We own and operate, Imagica – The Theme Park, which is one of the leading theme parks in India. Our theme
park features a diverse variety of rides and attractions of international standards, food and beverages (“F&B”)
outlets and retail and merchandise shops, designed to appeal to a broad demography of the Indian populace,
delivering memorable experiences, with a strong value proposition. Imagica – The Theme Park, is a part of
Adlabs Mumbai, a ‘one-stop’ entertainment destination that we intend to offer at this location. Adlabs Mumbai
also includes Aquamagica, a water park, which became fully operational on October 1, 2014, and a family hotel,
Novotel Imagica Khopoli, the first phase of which is expected to be completed by March 2015. Adlabs Mumbai,
spread over an aggregate area of approximately 132 acres, is located at Khalapur, which is 74 kilometres from
Mumbai, off the Mumbai – Pune Expressway.
Imagica – The Theme Park has 25 rides and attractions, which are spread over six theme-based zones. We also
offer entertainment through live performances by acrobats, magicians, dancers, musicians and other artists
throughout the day in various parts of our theme park. In Imagica – The Theme Park, we own and operate an
array of F&B outlets. Our retail and merchandise offerings provide our guests an opportunity to memorialise
their experiences at the theme park by purchasing products such as toys, apparel, bags, caps and commemorative
mementos and photographs, which carry the ‘Imagica’ brand or are based on one of the rides or attractions in
our theme park.
Imagica – The Theme Park, became fully operational on November 1, 2013. For a period of approximately six
months prior to November 1, 2013, some of the rides and attractions in our theme park were open to the public.
The total number of guests hosted at our theme park for the twelve months ended December 31, 2014 was
912,061. We hosted 11,933 guests on December 20, 2013, the highest number of guests hosted by us in a day
since our theme park became fully operational.
Aquamagica, our water park located adjacent to our theme park, became fully operational on October 1, 2014.
For a period of six days prior to October 1, 2014, some of the rides and attractions in our water park were open
to the public. It offers 14 kinds of water slides and wave pools. Our objective is to take advantage of cross
selling opportunities offered by these two different entertainment experiences. We intend to position
Aquamagica as a destination for young party-goers and host Bollywood and electronic dance music events
where popular Indian and international artists and DJs perform at our ‘#gowiththeflow’ weekend events. For the
period commencing on September 25, 2014, when some of the rides and attractions were open to the public, up
to December 31, 2014, the total number of guests hosted at our water park was 90,940.
The first phase of our proposed 287 key hotel, to be called Novotel Imagica Khopoli, comprising of 116 keys, is
expected to be completed by March 2015 and will include facilities such as banquet halls, conference rooms,
specialty restaurants, recreation areas, a swimming pool, a spa, a kids’ activity centre and a fitness centre to
cater to varying entertainment requirements of our guests.
For the financial year ended March 31, 2014, our total income and our loss after tax was ₹ 1,069.18 million and
₹ 524.82 million, respectively. Our revenue from the sale of admission tickets, which was for a period of five
months from November 1, 2013 (when our theme park became fully operational) to March 31, 2014, from our
F&B operations and from our retail and merchandise operations was ₹ 712.88 million, ₹ 240.21 million and ₹
63.82 million, respectively. For the six months ended September 30, 2014, our total income and our loss after
tax was ₹ 733.25 million and ₹ 535.29 million, respectively. Our revenue from the sale of admission tickets,
from our F&B operations and from our retail and merchandise operations for the six months ended September
262
30, 2014 was ₹ 553.82 million, ₹ 119.80 million and ₹ 38.86 million, respectively
Significant Factors Affecting Our Results of Operations and Financial Condition
Number of Guests Hosted at our Parks
Our results of operations are and will be driven primarily by the number of guests hosted at our parks. The
number of guests hosted at our parks is a function of many factors, including the ticket price, sales and
marketing initiatives, opening of new rides and attractions, weather, disposable income, competitive offerings
and consumer tastes, preferences and confidence. We carry out research and analysis before developing new
rides and attractions and often invest substantial amounts to gauge the extent to which these new rides and
attractions will earn consumer acceptance. We believe that with the recent launch of our water park and our
hotel, the first phase of which is expected to be completed by March 2015, we will be able to attract more guests
to Adlabs Mumbai with the completion of as we will be able to position Adlabs Mumbai as a one stop
destination for varying customer requirements, including for entertainment, corporate meetings and off-sites,
weddings and other events.
Per Capita Spending by Guests
Our results of operations are and will be dependent on the amount of per capita spending which includes
admission ticket and F&B and retail and merchandise purchases inside our parks.
We offer multiple types of admission tickets. We provide discounts, actively run promotions and use dynamic
pricing models to adjust to changes in demand during targeted periods to maximise revenue and manage
capacity.
The per capita spending inside our parks is dependent on pricing, acceptability and range and launch of new
F&B, retail and merchandise offerings, the mix of guests and the mix of in-park spending. Discretionary
consumer spending is influenced by general economic conditions and the availability of disposable income.
Favourable macroeconomic and demographic factors such as economic growth, rising disposable incomes,
young population, expanding middle class and rapid urbanisation have resulted in Indian populace exhibiting
propensity for increased discretionary spending on entertainment. With the rise in education levels and
increasing international exposure, we believe that the Indian consumers have indicated a willingness to pay a
premium for quality entertainment options.
Seasonality
The theme and water park industry is seasonal in nature. Attendance at our parks is likely to be affected by
factors such as school examinations and vacations, public holidays, festivals, weekends and weather conditions
such as monsoons. We believe that attendance at the theme and water park and revenues from F&B and retail
and merchandise operations is, and will continue to be, higher during school vacations, public holidays and
weekends. In addition, our proposed water park is expected to generate higher revenues in the summer months.
Conversely, our revenues may decrease during the monsoon or off-peak months. We carry out promotional
activities and offer dynamic pricing during the off-peak months. Further, unfavourable weather conditions such
as forecasts of excessive rainfalls may reduce the attendance at our parks for such periods. The majority of our
rides, attractions and queuing and waiting areas in our theme park are covered to avoid any inconvenience
during the monsoon or the summer seasons.
Capital Requirements and Availability of Funding
We operate in a capital-intensive industry with relatively long gestation periods. A critical factor for the success
of a park is the uniqueness and novelty of its rides and attractions. Accordingly, we are required to undertake
capital expenditure on a regular basis to enhance the guest experience of our existing rides and attractions and
introduce new offerings. Our financing requirements are primarily for land acquisition for the park, the cost of
development of rides and attractions and working capital. Our capital expenditure plans in the near future
include the development of a theme park in Hyderabad and adding three to four rides and attractions over the
next five years including one major ride or attraction every two years at Adlabs Mumbai. Our ability to grow
our business also depends on cost effective avenues of funding and will be met through internal accruals,
infusion of equity capital or borrowings from financial institutions. Our debt service cost along with our overall
cost of funds depends on many external factors, including the availability of adequate liquidity in the credit
market and in particular, interest rate movement, since most of our indebtedness is at floating rates. Our ability
to finance our capital needs, and secure other financing when needed, on acceptable terms, is a key factor in the
263
operation of our business.
Operating Leverage
Our business involves a fixed cost-base and a high operative leverage. A large portion of our expenses are
relatively fixed because the cost of operations of the parks, the salaries of full-time employees, operations and
maintenance costs, power costs, security and insurance do not vary significantly with attendance. Our results of
operations will depend on our ability to effectively manage such costs. These effects could be particularly
pronounced during periods of economic contraction, bad weather or any other adverse development. If costmanagement efforts are insufficient to offset any decline in revenues or are impracticable, we could experience a
decline in margins, profitability and reduced or negative cash flows.
We may also, in the future, be required to comply with more rigorous standards or other requirements prescribed
by various regulatory or other statutory authorities, or incur capital and operating expenses. The costs of
complying with such regulations could be significant.
Our Critical Accounting Policies
Basis of Preparation
Our restated consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the Companies Act and
the SEBI ICDR Regulations on the basis of our audited consolidated statement of assets and liabilities as of
September 30, 2014, March 31, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 and our audited consolidated statement of
profits and losses and cash flows for the six months ended September 30, 2014, for the financial years 2014,
2013, 2012, 2011 and for the period ended March 31, 2010. We have one subsidiary, Walkwater Properties
Private Limited, which was acquired by our Company on September 11, 2014. Our financial statements as of
and for the six months ended September 30, 2014 include the results of operations of the subsidiary.
Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the following basis:

In respect of the subsidiary, the financial statements have been consolidated on a line-by-line basis by
adding together the book values of like item of assets, liabilities, incomes and expenses, after fully
eliminating intra-group balances and unrealised profits or losses on intra-group transactions in
accordance with Accounting Standard 21 - “Consolidated Financial Statements”.

The excess of cost to our Company of its investment in the subsidiary over our Company’s share of net
assets of the subsidiary is recognised in the financial statements as goodwill, which is tested for
impairment at each balance sheet date. The excess of our Company’s share of net assets of the
subsidiary over the cost of acquisition is treated as capital reserve.

The results of operations of the subsidiary have been included in our consolidated financial statements
from the date on which the parent-subsidiary relationship came into existence.
Our interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with Accounting Standards 25 on Interim
Financial Reporting in accordance with the Companies (Accounting Standards) Rules, 2006 and the relevant
provisions of the Companies Act. Our financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost
convention method on an accrual basis.
Statement of Significant Accounting Policies
Use of Estimates
The presentation of the financial statements requires estimates and assumptions to be made that affect the
reported amount of assets and liabilities on the date of the financial statements and reported amount of revenues
and expenses during the reporting period. Difference between the actual results and estimates are recognised in
the period in which the results are known or materialised.
Fixed Assets and Depreciation
Fixed assets are valued at cost less the accumulated depreciation, with all cost comprising purchase prices.
Duties and levies attributable to the fixed assets are capitalised.
264
Costs including interest and financing costs, test and trial run costs until the commencement of commercial
operations of our theme park were capitalised. Net charges on foreign exchange contracts and adjustments
arising from exchange rate variations for such periods were also capitalised.
Depreciation is charged on the straight line method by the Company in accordance with the rate and in the
manner specified in Schedule II of the Companies Act, 2013 or on the basis of the useful lives of the assets as
estimated by management, whichever is lower.
Inventories
Inventories are valued at cost with F&B items valued on a weighted average basis.
Provisions, Contingent Liabilities and Contingent Assets
A provision is recognised when we have a present obligation as a result of a past event and it is probable that an
outflow of resources will be required to settle the obligation in respect of which a reliable estimate can be made.
Provisions are determined based on the best estimate required to settle the obligation at the balance sheet date. A
contingent liability is disclosed unless the possibility of an outflow of resources embodying economics benefit is
remote. A contingent asset is neither recognised nor disclosed.
Foreign Currency Transactions
Foreign currency transactions are accounted at the exchange rates prevailing on the date of the transactions.
Gains and losses, if any, at the year-end or period end in respect of monetary assets and monetary liabilities not
covered by the forward contracts are transferred to profit & loss account except for long term foreign currency
monetary items.
In accordance with paragraph 46A of Account Standard -11, we add or deduct the exchange fluctuation from the
cost of assets including mark to market changes for the purpose of reporting long term foreign currency
monetary item utilised for acquiring such fixed assets. The fluctuation capitalised is amortised over the balance
useful life of the fixed assets.
Borrowing Cost
Borrowing costs that are attributable to acquisition and construction of qualifying assets are capitalised till the
asset is put to use. All other borrowing costs are recognised as expenditure in the period in which they are
incurred.
Borrowing costs that are attributable to the acquisition and construction of qualifying assets are capitalised up to
the date the asset is put to use, based on borrowings incurred specifically for financing the asset or the weighted
average rate of all other borrowings, if no specific borrowings have been incurred for the qualifying asset.
Changes in Accounting Policies
Change in Depreciation Policy from Written Down Value Method to Straight Line Method.
During the financial year 2014, our Company changed the method of depreciation from the written-down value
method to the straight-line method. The depreciation figures appearing in the audited financial statements for the
financial years 2013, 2012 and 2011 and for the period ended March 31, 2010 were restated to provide for the
impact in each of the respective financial years due to the change in method of depreciation. The net block of
fixed assets in each of the financial years 2013, 2012 and 2011 and the period ended March 31, 2010 and the
depreciation cost in our profit and loss statement for the financial year 2014 and 2013 has been accordingly
changed in our restated financial statements. As a result, our depreciation cost for the financial years 2014 and
2013 increased by ₹ 0.02 million and decreased by ₹ 0.02 million, respectively.
Change in Revenue Recognition Policy for Open Pass, Gift Passes and Open Day Tickets
During the six months ended September 30, 2014, the Company changed its accounting policy for recognizing
revenue from sale of open passes, gift passes and open-day tickets (with all days validity), which are nonrefundable in nature. During the financial year 2014, revenue from sale of such passes and tickets were
recognized when they were sold or booked. We now recognize these revenue when such passes and ticket are
utilized or have expired. As a result, our income for the financial year 2014 was reduced by ₹ 0.95 million.
265
Presentation and disclosure of financial statements
During the six months ended September 30, 2014, Schedule III of the Companies Act, 2013 became applicable
for the preparation and presentation of our financial statements. Accordingly, we prepared the financial
statements for the financial year ended March 31, 2014 in accordance with Schedule III of the Companies Act,
2013. The adoption of Schedule III of the Companies Act, 2013 does not impact recognition and measurement
principles followed for preparation of financial statements. We have reclassified the figures for the financial
years 2013, 2012, 2011, and for the period ended March 31, 2010 in accordance with the requirements of
Schedule III, Companies Act, 1956.

million.

million for the financial year 2013, primarily as a result of a decrease in income from liquid mutual fund

Financial Condition, Liquidity and Capital Resources
We define liquidity as our ability to generate sufficient funds from internal and external sources to meet our
obligations and commitments. In addition, liquidity includes the ability to obtain appropriate equity and debt
financing and to convert into cash those assets that are no longer required to meet existing strategic and financial
objectives. Liquidity cannot be considered separately from capital resources that consist of current or potentially
available funds for use in achieving long-range business objectives and meeting debt service and other
commitments.
We have historically financed our capital requirements primarily through financing from banks and other
financial institutions in the form of term loans, cash generated from the issuance of equity shares and equitylinked instruments to our Promoters and investors and short-term borrowings from our Promoters. With the
launch of our operations, we expect to generate liquidity from internal accruals. We will be required to
undertake capital investment on a regular basis to improve the existing rides and attractions and develop new
parks. Our financing requirements are primarily for the parcel of land for the park, the development cost of rides
and other attractions and working capital. We also have significant capital expenditure plans in the near future,
including expanding our portfolio of parks by developing a theme park in Hyderabad and adding three to four
rides and attractions over the next five years including one major ride or attraction every two years at Adlabs
Mumbai. We believe that we will have sufficient capital resources from our operations, net proceeds of the Issue
and other financing from banks, financial institutions and other lenders to meet our capital requirements for at
least the next 12 months.

Also, see the section “Risk Factors – We are subject to risks arising from exchange rate fluctuations.
Depreciation of the Rupee against foreign currencies may have an adverse effect on our results of operations” on
page 35.
Interest Rate Risk
We are subject to interest rate risk, primarily because most of our borrowings and our deposits of cash and cash
equivalents with banks and other financial institutions are at floating interest rates. As of December 31, 2014, all
our indebtedness consisted of floating rate indebtedness.
Interest rates are highly sensitive to many factors beyond our control, including the monetary policies of the
RBI, deregulation of the financial sector in India, domestic and international economic and political conditions,
inflation and other factors. Upward fluctuations in interest rates increase the cost of servicing existing and new
debts, which adversely affects our results of operations.
Inflation Risk
India has experienced high inflation for the last 12 to 18 months, which has contributed to an increase in interest
rates, adversely affecting both sales and margins. See the section “Risk Factors – Political, economic or other
factors that are beyond our control may have an adverse effect on our business and results of operations” on
page 35.
Seasonality of Business
Our business is seasonal in nature. Our parks could experience volatility in attendance as a result of school
examinations and vacations, public holidays, weekends and adverse weather conditions such as monsoons. See
the section “Risk Factors – Our business is seasonal in nature, and may be affected by weather conditions,
school vacations, public holidays and weekends. Therefore, a sequential quarter-to-quarter comparison of our
results of operations may not be a good indicator of our performance” on page 19.
Unusual or Infrequent Events or Transactions
To our knowledge, there have been no transactions or events which, in our judgment, would be considered
unusual or infrequent.
Known Trends or Uncertainties
Our business has been affected and we expect that it will continue to be affected by the trends identified above
in “Significant Factors Affecting Our Results of Operations and Financial Condition” and the uncertainties
described in the section “Risk Factors” on pages 263 and 17, respectively. To our knowledge, except as
disclosed in this Red Herring Prospectus, there are no known factors which we expect to have a material adverse
effect on our income.
Future Relationship between Cost and Revenue
Other than as described in the section “Risk Factors” on page 17 and this section, there are no known factors
that might affect the future relationship between cost and revenue.
Competitive Conditions
275
We expect competition in our industry from existing and potential competitors to intensify. For details, refer to
the discussions of our competition in the sections “Risk Factors” and “Our Business” on pages 27 and 130,
respectively.
New Products or Business Segments
Our subsidiary, Walkwater Properties which we acquired in September 2014, has applied to the Government of
Maharashtra for an approval to develop a township project on a parcel of land measuring 170 acres adjacent to
Adlabs Mumbai owned by us along with certain adjoining parcels of land owned by third parties.
Except as disclosed above, we have not announced and do not expect to announce in the near future any new
products or business segments, except as disclosed in this Red Herring Prospectus.

Litigation involving our Company
Litigation against our Company
Civil Cases
1.
Bharat Lekhraj Harwani (“Plaintiff”) has filed a Special Civil Suit No. 212 of 2011 in the Court of
Civil Judge, Senior Division, Panvel (“Civil Court”) against Rajendra Ramvilas Jakhotia, Maruti Patil,
Manmohan Shetty and our Company (“Defendants”) in relation to the purchase of approximately 170
acres of land by our Company on which our Theme Park is situated. The Plaintiff has alleged that he
had entered into arrangements through a memorandum of understanding (the “2008 MoU”) for the
purchase of land admeasuring 65 acres owned by Rajendra Ramvilas Jakhotia and Maruti Patil among
others, and 105 acres of adjacent land belonging to third parties (the “Property”). The plaintiff prayed
for an injunction for creation of third party interest on the Property by way of sale, transfer,
conveyance, mortgage, lien, lease or otherwise. The Civil Court did not grant an injunction and an
appeal was filed by the Plaintiff in the High Court of Bombay, at Mumbai (“High Court”). By orders
dated August 3, 2011 and April 12, 2012, the dispute was referred to arbitration by the High Court. Our
Company challenged the maintainability of the arbitration proceedings and also challenged the
jurisdiction of the arbitrator under Section 16 of the Indian Arbitration and Conciliation Act, 1996,
since it was not a party to the 2008 MoU (the “Maintainability Application”). However, the arbitrator,
on September 4, 2011 rejected our Company’s Maintainability Application. On April 12, 2013, the
arbitrator ordered that the transactions of purchase of land entered into among our Company, Rajendra
Ramvilas Jakhotia and Maruti Patil, in respect of 65 acres of land mentioned in the 2008 MoU would
be subject to the outcome of the arbitral proceedings (the “Arbitral Order”). Our Company has
challenged the Arbitral Order by way of Writ Petition (WPL No. 1489 of 2013) before the High Court
(the “Writ Petition”), which has been admitted. The High Court, through its order dated August 7, 2014
(the “Order”) dismissed the Writ Petition as withdrawn. Further, in terms of the Order, our Company
was granted the liberty to seek appropriate remedy in this regard. Accordingly, our Company has
preferred an Arbitration Appeal (No. 19 of 2014) before the High Court against the Arbitral Order,
which was admitted by the High Court on September 25, 2014. The matter is pending.
2.
Laxman Narayan Patil (the “Plaintiff”) has filed a suit being R.S. No. 75/13 in the Court of Civil Judge,
Junior Division at Khalapur (the “Civil Court”) against our Company. The Plaintiff has alleged that our
Company has encroached upon land aggregating to 2.2 acres owned by him (“Disputed Land”) in an
unauthorized manner. By an interim order dated September 18, 2013 the Civil Court directed our
Company, its employees, agents, representatives, assignees to refrain from encroaching upon the
Disputed Land. Our Company has filed an appeal against the interim order by way of Civil
Miscellaneous Appeal No. 90 of 2013 before the District Court, Raigad at Alibaug. The matter is
pending.

Our Company has received a notice (the “Notice”) from the Divisional Commissioner Office, Kokan
Bhuvan (the “Commissioner”) on December 21, 2013, directing our Company to furnish certain details
in relation to the acquisition of AEL Land and its subsequent use. The Notice was issued by the
Commissioner pursuant to certain points raised by some individuals at the proceedings held in the
Maharashtra Legislative Assembly, under Rule 105 of the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly Rules
(the “Allegations”). The Allegations included, amongst other things, forceful acquisition, possession
and unauthorised use of land, changing the survey numbers of land by managing government officials,
and undertaking illegal excavation and mining. Our Company has denied all the Allegations through its
reply dated December 26, 2013 submitted to the Commissioner and stated that the land was acquired
and developed by it in accordance with applicable law and also provided the requisite documentation in
this regard. Further, in relation to the allegation pertaining to illegal excavation undertaken by our
Company, our Company has clarified in its reply that for the excavation of brass coal tar and soil
mineral undertaken, it has already deposited a royalty of ₹ 11.40 million with the government treasury
and paid penalty of ₹ 10.54 million to the Sub-Divisional Officer, Panvel. As on the date of this Red
Herring Prospectus, our Company has not received any further communication in this regard.

O & M Services Company (“O&M”) has, on July 14, 2014, filed a petition before the Micro and Small
Enterprises Facilitation Council, Konkan Division, Thane (the “MSEFC”) against our Company, Kapil
Bagla, our Director and another. O&M has alleged that our Company has not paid the money due to
O&M for civil construction services provided by O&M to our Company. Our Company has filed its
reply on September 17, 2014. The total amount claimed by O&M is ₹ 10.24 million towards unpaid
dues, interest and damages. The matter is pending before the MSEFC.
Tax matters
Our Company was issued summons on July 3, 2013 by the Department of Revenue, Central Board of Excise and
Customs (the “Department”) for production of certain documents and information related to the import of goods
by our Company for use in our theme park. In terms of the notification No. 45/2005- Customs dated May 16,
2005, issued by the Ministry of Finance (the “2005 Notification”), our Company had availed of the exemption
from payment of Special Additional Duty of Customs (“SAD”) on the import of goods pertaining to our theme
park into our warehouse located in Free Trade Warehousing Zone (“FTWZ”) at Panvel. However, the
Department, upon inquiry, held that the exemption was not available to our Company on transfer of the
imported goods from the warehouse to our theme park. Accordingly, our Company made payments aggregating
up to ₹ 104.10 million to the Department under protest, towards the amount claimed as exemption.
Subsequently, on December 30, 2013, the Ministry of Finance, through Circular No. 44/2013, clarified that the
benefit of SAD exemption in terms of the 2005 Notification shall not be available on the goods cleared from
FTWZ to the warehouse of an entity and which were meant for self-consumption. Accordingly, our Company,

and closure certificate as the amount of exemption availed had already been paid back by our Company.
Subsequently, a show cause notice dated December 16, 2014 (the “SCN”) has been issued by the Additional
Director General, Directorate General of Central Excise Intelligence, Mumbai Zonal Unit (the “DGCEI”) to our

period from June 2, 2012 to May 17, 2013; (ii) our Company was not entitled to claim exemption from payment

and were exempt from payment of sales tax/ value added tax; and (iii) our Company has accordingly
contravened the applicable provisions of the Customs Act, 1962, as amended (the “CA Act”). Under the SCN,
our Company has been directed to show cause as to why: (i) exemption claimed by our Company under the
2005 Notification should not be denied; (ii) SAD aggregating to ₹ 111.85 million, along with applicable interest,
not be recovered from our Company in respect of the imported goods (the “Outstanding Dues”) and the

the Outstanding Dues; (iii) goods imported by our Company and valued at approximately ₹ 2,257.41 million not
be held liable for confiscation under the CA Act; and (iv) applicable penalty under the CA Act should not be
imposed on our Company. Further, Kapil Bagla has been directed to separately show cause to the DGCEI as to
why applicable penalty under the provisions of the CA Act should not be imposed on him in this regard. Our
Company has filed its reply to the SCN with the Commissioner of Customs, Nhava Sheva General on February
2, 2015 denying the allegations levelled in the SCN. The matter is pending.

by each FPI shall be below 10% of the total paid-up Equity Share capital of our Company and the total holdings
of all FPIs put together shall not exceed 24% of the paid-up Equity Share capital of our Company. The
aggregate limit of 24% may be increased up to the sectoral cap by way of a resolution passed by the Board of
Directors followed by a special resolution passed by the Shareholders of our Company and subject to prior

eligibility conditions. Certain details pertaining to the percentage of Issue size available for
allocation to each category is disclosed overleaf of the Bid cum Application Form and in the
RHP / Prospectus. For details in relation to allocation, the Bidder/Applicant may refer to the
RHP / Prospectus.
(b)

category or combination of categories at the discretion of the Issuer and in consultation with
the BRLMs and the Designated Stock Exchange and in accordance with the SEBI ICDR
Regulations, 2009. Unsubscribed portion in QIB category is not available for subscription to

the event of an under-subscription applicable to the Issuer, Bidders/Applicants may refer to
the RHP.
(d)
Illustration of the Book Building and Price Discovery Process
Bidders should note that this example is solely for illustrative purposes and is not specific to
the Issue; it also excludes bidding by Anchor Investors.
Bidders can bid at any price within the Price Band. For instance, assume a Price Band of Rs.
20 to Rs. 24 per share, Issue size of 3,000 Equity Shares and receipt of five Bids from
Bidders, details of which are shown in the table below. The illustrative book given below
shows the demand for the Equity Shares of the Issuer at various prices and is collated from

The price discovery is a function of demand at various prices. The highest price at which the
Issuer is able to Issue the desired number of Equity Shares is the price at which the book cuts
off, i.e., Rs. 22.00 in the above example. The Issuer, in consultation with the BRLMs, may
finalise the Issue Price at or below such Cut-Off Price, i.e., at or below Rs. 22.00. All Bids at
or above this Issue Price and cut-off Bids are valid Bids and are considered for allocation in
the respective categories.
(e)
Alternate Method of Book Building
In case of FPOs, Issuers may opt for an alternate method of Book Building in which only the
Floor Price is specified for the purposes of bidding (“Alternate Book Building Process”).
The Issuer may specify the Floor Price in the RHP or advertise the Floor Price at least one
Working Day prior to the Bid/Issue Opening Date. QIBs may Bid at a price higher than the
Floor Price and the Allotment to the QIBs is made on a price priority basis. The Bidder with
the highest Bid Amount is allotted the number of Equity Shares Bid for and then the second
highest Bidder is Allotted Equity Shares and this process continues until all the Equity Shares
have been allotted. RIIs, NIIs and Employees are Allotted Equity Shares at the Floor Price and
allotment to these categories of Bidders is made proportionately. If the number of Equity
Shares Bid for at a price is more than available quantity then the allotment may be done on a
proportionate basis. Further, the Issuer may place a cap either in terms of number of specified
securities or percentage of issued capital of the Issuer that may be allotted to a single Bidder,
decide whether a Bidder be allowed to revise the bid upwards or downwards in terms of price
and/or quantity and also decide whether a Bidder be allowed single or multiple bids.
SECTION 6: ISSUE PROCEDURE IN FIXED PRICE ISSUE

following manner:

minimum Bid Lot).
(b)

Maximum RII Allottees, the RIIs (in that category) who will then be allotted minimum Bid
Lot shall be determined on the basis of draw of lots.

demand under this category. The allotment to all successful NIIs may be made at or above the Issue
Price. If the aggregate demand in this category is less than or equal to the Non-Institutional Category at
or above the Issue Price, full allotment may be made to NIIs to the extent of their demand. In case the

BASIS OF ALLOTMENT FOR QIBs (OTHER THAN ANCHOR INVESTORS), NIIs AND
RESERVED CATEGORY IN CASE OF OVER-SUBSCRIBED ISSUE
In the event of the Issue being over-subscribed, the Issuer may finalise the Basis of Allotment in
consultation with the Designated Stock Exchange in accordance with the SEBI ICDR Regulations,
2009.
The allocation may be made in marketable lots, on a proportionate basis as explained below:
(a)
Bidders may be categorized according to the number of Equity Shares applied for;
(b)
The total number of Equity Shares to be Allotted to each category as a whole may be arrived
at on a proportionate basis, which is the total number of Equity Shares applied for in that
category (number of Bidders in the category multiplied by the number of Equity Shares
applied for) multiplied by the inverse of the over-subscription ratio;
(c)
The number of Equity Shares to be Allotted to the successful Bidders may be arrived at on a
proportionate basis, which is total number of Equity Shares applied for by each Bidder in that
348
category multiplied by the inverse of the over-subscription ratio;
7.6
(d)
In all Bids where the proportionate allotment is less than the minimum bid lot decided per
Bidder, the allotment may be made as follows: the successful Bidders out of the total Bidders
for a category may be determined by a draw of lots in a manner such that the total number of
Equity Shares Allotted in that category is equal to the number of Equity Shares calculated in
accordance with (b) above; and each successful Bidder may be Allotted a minimum of such
Equity Shares equal to the minimum Bid Lot finalised by the Issuer;
(e)
If the proportionate allotment to a Bidder is a number that is more than the minimum Bid lot
but is not a multiple of one (which is the marketable lot), the decimal may be rounded off to
the higher whole number if that decimal is 0.5 or higher. If that number is lower than 0.5 it
may be rounded off to the lower whole number. Allotment to all bidders in such categories
may be arrived at after such rounding off; and
(f)
If the Equity Shares allocated on a proportionate basis to any category are more than the
Equity Shares Allotted to the Bidders in that category, the remaining Equity Shares available
for allotment may be first adjusted against any other category, where the Allotted Equity
Shares are not sufficient for proportionate allotment to the successful Bidders in that category.
The balance Equity Shares, if any, remaining after such adjustment may be added to the
category comprising Bidders applying for minimum number of Equity Shares.

RESTRICTIONS ON FOREIGN OWNERSHIP OF INDIAN SECURITIES
Foreign investment in Indian securities is regulated through the Industrial Policy, 1991 of the Government of
India and FEMA. While the Industrial Policy, 1991 prescribes the limits and the conditions subject to which
foreign investment can be made in different sectors of the Indian economy, FEMA regulates the precise manner
in which such investment may be made. Under the Industrial Policy, unless specifically restricted, foreign
investment is freely permitted in all sectors of Indian economy up to any extent and without any prior approvals,
but the foreign investor is required to follow certain prescribed procedures for making such investment. The
government bodies responsible for granting foreign investment approvals are FIPB and the RBI.
The Government has from time to time made policy pronouncements on FDI through press notes and press
releases. The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government
of India (“DIPP”), issued Circular 1 of 2014 (“Circular 1 of 2014”), which with effect from April 17, 2014,
consolidates and supersedes all previous press notes, press releases and clarifications on FDI issued by the DIPP
that were in force and effect as on April 16, 2014. The Government proposes to update the consolidated circular
on FDI Policy once every year and therefore, Circular 1 of 2014 will be valid until the DIPP issues an updated
circular.
The transfer of shares between an Indian resident and a non-resident does not require the prior approval of the
FIPB or the RBI, provided that (i) the activities of the investee company are under the automatic route under the
foreign direct investment (“FDI”) Policy and transfer does not attract the provisions of the Takeover
Regulations; (ii) the non-resident shareholding is within the sectoral limits under the FDI policy; and (iii) the
pricing is in accordance with the guidelines prescribed by the SEBI/RBI.
As per the existing policy of the Government of India, OCBs cannot participate in this Offer.
The Equity Shares have not been and will not be registered under the Securities Act, and may not be
offered or sold within the United States except pursuant to an exemption from, or in a transaction not
subject to, the registration requirements of the Securities Act and applicable U.S. state securities laws.
Accordingly, the Equity Shares are being offered and sold (i) within the United States to persons
reasonably believed to be qualified institutional investors (as defined in Rule 144A under the Securities
Act) pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and (ii) outside the United States in offshore
transactions in reliance on Regulation S under the Securities Act and applicable laws of the jurisdictions
where such offers and sales occur.
The above information is given for the benefit of the Bidders. Our Company, the Selling Shareholder and
the GCLMs are not liable for any amendments or modification or changes in applicable laws or
regulations, which may occur after the date of this Draft Red Herring Prospectus. Bidders are advised to
make their independent investigations and ensure that the number of Equity Shares Bid for do not exceed
the applicable limits under laws or regulations.

against letters of acceptance or of renunciation, or in cases of issue of bonus shares. Such
share certificates shall also be issued in the event of consolidation or sub-division of shares of

share certificates or Debenture certificates, into denominations less than marketable lots

order of a competent court of law or at a request from a Shareholder or to convert holding of
odd lot into transferable/marketable lot.
(iv)
A Director may sign a share certificate by affixing his signature thereon by means of any
machine, equipment or other mechanical means, such as engraving in metal or lithography,

“(a)
Subject to the provisions of Section 49 of the Act, the Board may, from time to time, subject to the
terms on which any shares may have been issued and subject to the conditions of allotment, by a
resolution passed at a meeting of the Board, (and not by circular resolution), make such call as it thinks
fit upon the Shareholders in respect of all money unpaid on the shares held by them respectively and
each Shareholder shall pay the amount of every call so made on him to the Person or Persons and
Shareholders and at the times and places appointed by the Board. A call may be made payable by
installments. Provided that the Board shall not give the option or right to call on shares to any person
except with the sanction of the Company in the General Meeting.
(b)
30 (thirty) days’ notice in writing at the least of every call (otherwise than on allotment) shall be given
by the Company specifying the time and place of payment and if payable to any Person other than the
Company, the name of the person to whom the call shall be paid, provided that before the time for
payment of such call, the Board may by notice in writing to the Shareholders revoke the same.
(c)
The Board of Directors may, when making a call by resolution, determine the date on which such call
shall be deemed to have been made, not being earlier than the date of resolution making such call and
thereupon the call shall be deemed to have been made on the date so determined and if no date is
determined, the call shall be deemed to have been made at the time when the resolution of the Board
authorising such call was passed and may be made payable by the Shareholders whose names appear
on the Register of Shareholders on such date or at the discretion of the Board on such subsequent date
as shall be fixed by the Board.
(d)
A call may be revoked or postponed at the discretion of the Board.
(e)
The joint holder of a share shall be jointly and severally liable to pay all installments and calls due in
respect thereof.
(f)
The Board may, from time to time at its discretion, extend the time fixed for the payment of any call
and may extend such time as to all or any of the Shareholders who, from residence at a distance or
other cause the Board may deem fairly entitled to such extension; but no Shareholders shall be entitled
to such extension save as a matter of grace and favour.
(g)
If any Shareholder or allottee fails to pay the whole or any part of any call or installment, due from him
on the day appointed for payment thereof, or any such extension thereof as aforesaid, he shall be liable
to pay interest on the same from the day appointed for the payment thereof to the time of actual
payment at such rate as shall from time to time be fixed by the Board but nothing in this Article shall
render it obligatory for the Board to demand or recover any interest from any such Shareholder.
(h)
Any sum, which by the terms of issue of a share or otherwise, becomes payable on allotment or at any
fixed date or by installments at a fixed time whether on account of the nominal value of the share or by
363
way of premium shall for the purposes of these Articles be deemed to be a call duly made and payable
on the date on which by the terms of issue or otherwise the same became payable, and in case of nonpayment, all the relevant provisions of these Articles as to payment of call, interest, expenses, forfeiture
or otherwise shall apply as if such sum became payable by virtue of a call duly made and notified.
(i)
On the trial or hearing of any action or suit brought by the Company against any Shareholder or his
legal representatives for the recovery of any money claimed to be due to the Company in respect of his
shares, it shall be sufficient to prove that the name of the Shareholder in respect of whose shares the
money is sought to be recovered appears entered on the Register of Shareholders as the holder, or one
of the holders at or subsequent to the date at which the money sought to be recovered is alleged to have
become due on the shares; that the resolution making the call is duly recorded in the minute book, and
that notice of such call was duly given to the Shareholder or his representatives so sued in pursuance of
these Articles; and it shall not be necessary to prove the appointment of the Directors who made such
call nor that a quorum of Directors was present at the Board at which any call was made, nor that the
meeting at which any call was made was duly convened or constituted nor any other matters
whatsoever; but the proof of the matters aforesaid shall be conclusive evidence of the debt.
(j)
Neither a judgment nor a decree in favour of the Company for calls or other money due in respect of
any share nor any part payment or satisfaction thereunder, nor the receipt by the Company of a portion
of any money which shall from time to time be due from any Shareholder to the Company in respect of
his shares, either by way of principal or interest, nor any indulgence granted by the Company in respect
of the payment of any such money shall preclude the Company from thereafter proceeding to enforce a
forfeiture of such shares as hereinafter provided.
(k)
The Board may, if it thinks fit (subject to the provisions of Section 50 of the Act) agree to and receive
from any Shareholder willing to advance the same, the whole or any part of the money due upon the
shares held by him beyond the sums actually called up, and upon the amount so paid or satisfied in
advance or so much thereof as from time to time and at any time thereafter as exceeds the amount of
the calls then made upon and due in respect of the shares in respect of which such advance has been
made, the Company may pay interest, as the Shareholder paying such sum in advance and the Board
agree upon, provided that the money paid in advance of calls shall not confer a right to participate in
profits or dividend. The Directors may at any time repay the amount so advanced.
(l)
No Shareholder shall be entitled to voting rights in respect of the money(ies) so paid by him until the
same would but for such payment, become presently payable.
(m)
The provisions of these Articles shall mutatis mutandis apply to the calls on Debentures of the
Company.”

person, for all money presently payable by him or his estate to the Company

(b)
Company’s lien, if any, on the shares, shall extend to all Dividends payable and bonuses

364
payable at a fixed price in respect of such shares.
(d)
For the purpose of enforcing such lien, the Board may sell the shares, subject thereto in such
manner as they shall think fit, and for that purpose may cause to be issued a duplicate
certificate in respect of such shares and may authorise one of their Shareholders to execute
and register the transfer thereof on behalf of and in the name of any purchaser. The purchaser
shall not be bound to see to the application of the purchase money, nor shall his title to the
shares be affected by any irregularity or invalidity in the proceedings in reference to the sale.
Provided that no sale shall be made:
(i)
unless a sum in respect of which the lien exists is presently payable; or
(ii)
until the expiration of 14 days after a notice in writing stating and demanding
payment of such part of the amount in respect of which the lien exists as is presently
payable, has been given to the registered holder for the time being of the share or the
person entitled thereto by reason of his death or insolvency.
The net proceeds of any such sale shall be received by the Company and applied in payment
of such part of the amount in respect of which the lien exists as is presently payable. The
residue, if any, shall (subject to a like lien for sums not presently payable as existed upon the
shares before the sale) be paid to the Person entitled to the shares at the date of the sale.
(e)
ii.
No Shareholder shall exercise any voting right in respect of any shares registered in his name
on which any calls or other sums presently payable by him have not been paid, or in regard to
which the Company has exercised any right of lien.
On Debentures:
(a)
The Company shall have a first and paramount lien:
(i)
on every Debenture (not being a fully paid Debenture), for all money (whether
presently payable or not) called, or payable at a fixed time, in respect of that
Debenture;
(ii)
on all Debentures (not being fully paid Debentures) standing registered in the name
of a single person, for all money presently payable by him or his estate to the
Company
Provided that the Board may, at any time, declare any Debentures wholly or in part to be
exempt from the provisions of this Article.
(b)
Company’s lien, if any, on the Debentures, shall extend to all interest and premium payable in
respect of such Debentures.
(c)
Unless otherwise agreed, the registration of a transfer of Debentures shall operate as a waiver
of the Company’s lien, if any, on such Debentures. The fully paid up Debentures shall be free
from all lien and that in case of partly paid Debentures, the Company’s lien shall be restricted
to money called or payable at a fixed price in respect of such Debentures.
(d)
For the purpose of enforcing such lien, the Board may sell the Debentures, subject thereto in
such manner as they shall think fit, and for that purpose may cause to be issued a duplicate
certificate in respect of such Debentures and may authorize the debenture trustee acting as
trustee for the holders of Debentures or one of the holder of Debentures to execute and
register the transfer thereof on behalf of and in the name of any purchaser. The purchaser shall
not be bound to see to the application of the purchase money, nor shall his title to the
Debentures be affected by any irregularity or invalidity in the proceedings in reference to the
sale.
365
Provided that no sale shall be made:
(i)
unless a sum in respect of which the lien exists is presently payable; or
(ii)
until the expiration of 14 days after a notice in writing stating and demanding
payment of such part of the amount in respect of which the lien exists as is presently
payable, has been given to the registered holder for the time being of the Debenture
or the person entitled thereto by reason of his death or insolvency.
The net proceeds of any such sale shall be received by the Company and applied in payment
of such part of the amount in respect of which the lien exists as is presently payable. The
residue, if any, shall (subject to a like lien for sums not presently payable as existed upon the
Debentures before the sale) be paid to the Person entitled to the Debentures at the date of the
sale.
(e)
No holder of Debentures shall exercise any voting right in respect of any Debentures
registered in his name on which any calls or other sums presently payable by him have not
been paid, or in regard to which the Company has exercised any right of lien.”
FORFEITURE OF SHARES
Article 20 provides that
“(a)
If any Shareholder fails to pay any call or installment or any part thereof or any money due in respect
of any shares either by way of principal or interest on or before the day appointed for the payment of
the same or any such extension thereof as aforesaid, the Board may, at any time thereafter, during such
time as the call or installment or any part thereof or other money remain unpaid or a judgment or
decree in respect thereof remain unsatisfied, give notice to him or his legal representatives requiring
him to pay the same together with any interest that may have accrued and all expenses that may have
been incurred by the Company by reason of such non-payment.
(b)
The notice shall name a day, (not being less than 14 (fourteen) days from the date of the notice), and a
place or places on or before which such call or installment or such part or other money as aforesaid and
interest thereon, (at such rate as the Board shall determine and payable from the date on which such
call or installment ought to have been paid), and expenses as aforesaid are to be paid. The notice shall
also state that in the event of non-payment at or before the time and at the place appointed, the shares in
respect of which the call was made or installment is payable, will be liable to be forfeited.
(c)
If the requirements of any such notice as aforesaid are not be complied with, any share in respect of
which such notice has been given, may at any time, thereafter before payment of all calls, installments,
other money due in respect thereof, interest and expenses as required by the notice has been made, be
forfeited by a resolution of the Board to that effect. Such forfeiture shall include all Dividends declared
or any other money payable in respect of the forfeited share and not actually paid before the forfeiture
subject to the applicable provisions of the Act. There shall be no forfeiture of unclaimed Dividends
before the claim becomes barred by Law.
(d)
When any share shall have been so forfeited, notice of the forfeiture shall be given to the Shareholder
on whose name it stood immediately prior to the forfeiture or if any of his legal representatives or to
any of the Persons entitled to the shares by transmission, and an entry of the forfeiture with the date
thereof, shall forthwith be made in the Register of Shareholders, but no forfeiture shall be in any
manner invalidated by any omission or neglect to give such notice or to make any such entry as
aforesaid.
(e)
Any share so forfeited shall be deemed to be the property of the Company and may be sold; re-allotted,
or otherwise disposed of either to the original holder thereof or to any other Person upon such terms
and in such manner as the Board shall think fit.
(f)
Any Shareholder whose shares have been forfeited shall, notwithstanding the forfeiture, be liable to
pay and shall forthwith pay to the Company on demand all calls, installments, interest and expenses
and other money owing upon or in respect of such shares at the time of the forfeiture together with
interest thereon from the time of the forfeiture until payment at such rate as the Board may determine
and the Board may enforce, (if it thinks fit), payment thereof as if it were a new call made at the date of
366
forfeiture.
(g)
The forfeiture of a share shall involve extinction at the time of the forfeiture of all interest in all claims
and demands against the Company, in respect of the share and all other rights incidental to the share,
except only such of these rights as by these Articles are expressly saved.
(h)
A duly verified declaration in writing that the declarant is a Director or Secretary of the Company and
that a share in the Company has been duly forfeited in accordance with these Articles on a date stated
in the declaration, shall be conclusive evidence of the facts therein stated as against all Persons
claiming to be entitled to the shares.
(i)
Upon any sale after forfeiture or for enforcing a lien in purported exercise of the powers hereinbefore
given, the Board may appoint some Person to execute an instrument of transfer of the shares sold and
cause the purchaser’s name to be entered in the Register of Shareholders in respect of the shares sold
and the purchaser shall not be bound to see to the regularity of the proceedings, or to the application of
the purchase money, and after his name has been entered in the Register of Shareholders in respect of
such shares, the validity of the sale shall not be impeached by any person and the remedy of any person
aggrieved by the sale shall be in damages only and against the Company exclusively.
(j)
Upon any sale, re-allotment or other disposal under the provisions of the preceding Articles, the
certificate or certificates originally issued in respect of the relevant shares shall, (unless the same shall
on demand by the Company have been previously surrendered to it by the defaulting Shareholder),
stand cancelled and become null and void and of no effect and the Board shall be entitled to issue a
new certificate or certificates in respect of the said shares to the person or persons entitled thereto.
(k)
The Board may, at any time, before any share so forfeited shall have been sold, re-allotted or otherwise
disposed of, annul the forfeiture thereof upon such conditions
