Risk Factors

(In this section "We", "Our", "InvIT" means "the Trust and/ or Project SPVs owned by the Trust") Risks Related to our Organization and the Structure of the Trust

1. The debt financing provided by the Trust to each of the Project SPVs comprises of certain unsecured, interest-free and interest-bearing loans as well as loans that is secured by a subordinate charge on (i) the cash flows deposited in the escrow account and (ii) the escrow account of such Project SPV. The payment obligations of the respective Project SPVs in relation to such debt financing will be subordinated to all existing and future obligations of the Project SPVs towards any secured senior lenders.

2. Any payment by the Project SPVs, including in an event of termination of the relevant concession agreement, is subject to a mandatory escrow arrangement which restricts their flexibility to utilize the available funds.

3. The regulatory framework governing infrastructure investment trusts in India is untested and the interpretation and enforcement thereof involve uncertainties, which may have a material, adverse effect on the ability of certain categories of investors to invest in the Units, our business, financial condition and results of operations and our ability to make distributions to Unitholders.

4. We must maintain certain investment ratios, which may present additional risks to us.

5. The Valuation Report, and any underlying reports, are not opinions on the commercial merits of the Trust or the Project SPVs, nor are they opinions, expressed or implied, as to the future trading price of the Units or the financial condition of the Trust upon listing, and the valuation contained therein may not be indicative of the true value of the Project SPVs assets.

6. Certain of the Project SPVs have experienced losses in prior years and any losses in the future could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations, our ability to make distributions to the Unitholders and the trading price of our Units.

7. We may not be able to make distributions to Unitholders or the level of distributions may fall.

Risks Related to Our Business and Industry

8. Our failure to extend applicable concession agreements or our inability to identify and acquire new road assets that generate comparable or higher revenue, profits or cash flows than the Project SPVs may have a material adverse impact on our business, financial condition and results of operations and our ability to make distributions.

9. The Project SPVs toll-road concessions may be terminated prematurely under certain circumstances.

10. A decline in traffic volumes would materially and adversely affect our business prospects, financial condition and results of operations and our ability to make distributions to Unitholders.

11. Certain investigations are pending against the Related Parties of the Sponsor, the outcome of which may materially and adversely affect the Sponsor / our reputation, business and financial condition.

12. IRB Tumkur Chitradurga Tollway Limited (ITCTL) and M.V.R. Infrastructure and Tollways Limited (MITL) are required to pay annual premiums / negative grants in consideration for being granted the right to build and operate their respective projects. Failure to make such payments could result in the termination of the relevant concession agreement by the NHAI.

13. Changes in the policies adopted by governmental entities or in the relationships of any member of the Trust Group with the Government or State Governments could materially and adversely affect our business, financial performance and results of operations.

14. Certain provisions of the standard form of concession agreement may be non-negotiable or untested, and the concession agreements may contain certain restrictive terms and conditions which may be subject to varying interpretations.

15. We may be subject to increases in costs, including operation and maintenance costs, which we cannot recover by increasing toll fees under the concession agreements.

16. Certain actions of the Project SPVs require the prior approval of the NHAI, and no assurance can be given that the NHAI will approve such actions in a timely manner or at all.

17. Leakage of the toll fees on the Project SPVs roads may materially and adversely affect our revenues and financial condition.

18. We will depend on certain directors, executive officers and key employees of the Investment Manager, the Project Manager and the Project SPVs, and such entities may be unable to retain such personnel or to replace them with similarly qualified personnel, which could have a material, adverse effect on the business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the Trust Group.

19. There can be no assurance that we will be able to successfully undertake future acquisitions of road assets or efficiently manage the infrastructure road assets we have acquired or may acquire in the future.

20. The Project SPVs concessions are illiquid in nature, which may make it difficult for us to realise, sell or dispose of our shareholdings in the Project SPVs.

21. The Project SPVs may be required to undertake certain development of the Road Assets owned by the Trust, which may present additional risks to us.

22. The Project SPVs may not be able to comply with their maintenance obligations under the concession agreements, which may result in the termination of the concession agreements, the suspension of the Project SPVs rights to collect tolls or the requirement that the Project SPVs pay compensation or damages to the NHAI.

23. Our insurance policies may not provide adequate protection against various risks associated with our operations.

24. The Project SPVs, the Sponsor, the Investment Manager, the Project Manager and the Trustee are involved in certain legal and other proceedings, which may not be decided in their favour.

25. We do not own the "IRB" trademark and logo. Our license to use the "IRB" trademark and logo may be terminated under certain circumstances and our ability to use the trademark and logo may be impaired.

30. Our business will be subject to seasonal fluctuations that may affect our cash flows.

31. Certain Project SPVs operations and revenue are, currently, geographically concentrated in Gujarat, Maharashtra and other Indian states and consequently will be exposed to certain risks emanating therefrom.

33. Political and other agitations against the collection of tolls may affect our ability to collect tolls over prolonged periods, which could have a material, adverse effect on our business, results of operation and financial condition.

34. The cost of implementing new technologies for collection of tolls and monitoring our projects could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

35. We may be unable to renew or maintain the statutory and regulatory permits and approvals required to operate the Initial Road Assets.

36. Compliance with, and changes in, safety, health and environmental laws and regulations in India may materially and adversely affect our business.

37. The Project SPVs financing agreements entail interest at variable rates, and any increases in interest rates may adversely affect our results of operations, financial condition and cash flows.

38. The Project SPVs are subject to restrictive covenants under their financing agreements that could limit our flexibility in managing our business or to use cash or other assets.

39. We have obtained a credit rating of IND AAA for the senior debt of the Trust from India Ratings and Research, assuming the Trusts consolidated "external debt" (including debt availed by InvIT and the Project SPVs from banks and institutions but excluding debt infused by InvIT into the Project SPVs) as on March 31, 2017 would be up to Rs 10 billion. We have also obtained a credit rating of CARE AAA from CARE Ratings, assuming that the debt exposure of the Trust Group does not exceed Rs 10 billion after the Listing. Any downgrade of our credit rating may restrict our access to capital and materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

40. We will enter into related-party transactions. There can be no assurance that we could not have achieved more favourable terms if such transactions had been entered into with third parties.

Risks Related to the Trusts Relationships with the Sponsor and the Investment Manager

44. The Investment Manager may not be able to implement its investment or corporate strategies and the fees payable to the Project Manager are dependent on various factors.

45. Parties to the Trust are required to maintain the eligibility conditions specified under Regulation 4 of the InvIT Regulations on an ongoing basis. The Trust may not be able to ensure such ongoing compliance by the Sponsor, the Investment Manager, the Project Manager and the Trustee, which could result in the cancellation of the registration of the Trust.

46. The Investment Manager is required to comply with certain ongoing reporting and management obligations in relation to the Trust. There can be no assurance that the Investment Manager will be able to comply with such requirements.

Risks Related to Tax

47. Changes in legislation or the rules relating to tax regimes could materially and adversely affect our business, prospects and results of operations.

48. Some of our roads assets enjoy certain benefits under Section 80-IA of the Income Tax Act and any change in these tax benefits applicable to us may materially and adversely affect our results of operations.

49. Tax laws are subject to changes and differing interpretations, which may materially and adversely affect our operations.

50. Entities operating in India are subject to a variety of Government and State Government tax regimes and surcharges and changes in legislation or the rules relating to such tax regimes and surcharges could materially and adversely affect our business.
