5. For Fiscal 2011 and the nine months ended December 31, 2011, 94.15% and 93.69% of total turnover, respectively, was generated from concentrated regions. Hence, lack of geographical diversion can be a restriction for the company

Analysis of Financials:
Following are the financials of the company as per the Red Herring Prospectus filed by the company:

The company has managed to achieve a turnover of around Rs.1,194 Crores for FY ending 2011. The PAT  margin for the said year comes to a rather scant 3.35%. As against this, Gitanjali Gems Ltd., a listed peer, has a bit stronger position with a Turnover of Rs.5,122 Crores and a PAT margin of around 4.38%. Besides, unlike Gitanjali Gems, lack of geographical diversity and extensive global presence can also be a bottleneck for TBZ.

Although a strong brand name and experienced management can be positives for the company, investors may not digest the risk factors and not so extraordinary financial performance of the company
