The following discussion and analysis of Smaaash’s financial condition and results of operations is based upon, and should be read in conjunction with Smaaash’s financial statements and related notes that appear elsewhere in this report. Smaaash’s financial statements are prepared in accordance with IFRS. Smaaash’s fiscal year ends on March 31 of each year. The six month financial statements have been prepared for the period from April 2018 to September 2018. Accordingly, all references are for the six months ended September 30,2018. The following discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. For additional information regarding such risks and uncertainties, see “Risk Factors” and “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements.”

Overview

Smaaash operates 40 state-of-the-art games and entertainment centers (the “Centers”) including 39 Centers in India and one international Center in the U.S., in addition to carrying out product sales of its games and equipment that Smaaash has developed in-house, supported by its sponsorship and other revenues.

Smaaash’s core concept is to offer an interactive, immersive and fun experience to customers at its Centers, blending Augmented Reality (“AR”) and Virtual Reality (“VR”) and other games, indoor entertainment, and attractive food and beverage (“F&B”) options, customized to the tastes and preferences of a diverse set of customers across age groups, genders and backgrounds, including corporate customers, families, friends and children. Smaaash’s game concepts are supported by its in-house technology, value engineering and systems integration capabilities.

Smaaash’s game attractions are classified as follows:

Active games and interactive sports simulators (“Active Games”), including active game options such as single and multi-level go-karting lanes and bowling alleys, as well as interactive simulator-based game options such as Super Keeper, Hoop Shot, Extreme Drone Racing and more;
In-house developed AR and VR games, including Finger Coaster, Jurassic Escape, Vertigo Walk The Plank, Fly Max and Haunted Hospital; and
Arcade games and others, including Camel Racing, Hoop Shot and Human Claw; soft play zones which are conceptualized as indoor play areas for young children, including a ball pool, designed to encourage longer and repeat visits to Smaaash’s Centers and doing away with the requirement for families to make alternative childcare arrangements for the duration of their visits to its Centers; and indoor game viewing areas.

Smaaash’s game offerings are complemented by its in-house food & beverage services.

Smaaash launched its flagship Center in November 2012, at Kamala Mills in Lower Parel, Mumbai, with a proprietary cricket game (obtained by Smaaash under a perpetual license from its founder and the patent-holder, Shripal Morakhia, for a one-time fee) as anchor attraction. Over the last five years, Smaaash has transformed into a multi-center integrated games and entertainment company, with a wide suite of in-house developed AR and VR and other games, as well as F&B options at each of its Centers. Among other marketing initiatives, from time to time, Smaaash ties up with local athletes, sports icons and celebrities, including cricket, football, basketball and ice hockey players, to customize its games and increase their appeal to its customers, including via brand ambassadorships and game options designed around specific sports personalities.

Smaaash launched its first international Center in December 2016, at the Mall of America in Minnesota, USA. Its star attraction in its U.S. Center is a multi-level go-karting track and games developed and launched by us specifically for this Center, keeping in mind local preferences, such as its ice hockey-themed game called “What the Puck”, and Active Games such as Super Keeper, Hoop Shot and Extreme Drone Racing, among others

In fiscal year 2018, Smaaash acquired PVR bluO and SVM’s bowling and gaming assets to expand its footprint across India. The acquisitions added 20 Centers to Smaaash’s portfolio.

Factors Affecting Smaaash’s Results of Operations

Visitors to the centers:

Smaaash derives a significant portion of its revenue from operations through gaming revenues that are dependent on the visitors to its Centers. Smaaash also derives income from its F&B offerings. Smaaash seeks to attract visitors to its centers by continuously improving and increasing its gaming and F&B offerings, providing innovative products and technology and quality customer service.

Product Sales:

With a dedicated product development laboratory located at Worli, in Mumbai, India, Smaaash currently has over 25 new games under development, intended for launch during calendar year 2018. Based on its in-house product development capability, Smaaash has also recently diversified its revenue mix by entering into product sales, including domestic and export sales, where Smaaash retains the intellectual property rights (the “IPR”). Despite its limited operating history in this business, which Smaaash commenced during fiscal year 2016, Smaaash has already established a global footprint with sales of its in-house developed games and equipment in several countries, including USA, Germany, Mexico, China, Turkey and Israel. Smaaash relies on distributors for its third-party sales and does not have long-term contracts or arrangements with such distributors.

Employee Costs:

Smaaash incurs employee costs for proper functioning of its centers and also to carry out other administrative and selling processes such as finance, IT and marketing. Employee costs in fiscal year 2018 and the six months ended September 31, 2018 were Rs.385 million and Rs.190 million, respectively.

Rental:

Smaaash is required to pay rent for its premises including its centers and corporate office. Lease expenses in fiscal year 2018 and the six months ended September 30, 2018 were Rs.267 million and Rs.242 million, respectively. The rent is either on a minimum guarantee basis or revenue sharing or a combination of the two.

Finance Costs:

Smaaash uses debt to finance its operations. Smaaash has a total long-term and short-term borrowings outstanding of Rs.2.876 billion and Rs. 2.888 billion, as of March 31, 2018 and September 30, 2018, respectively. Finance costs in fiscal year 2018 and the six months ended September 30, 2018 were Rs.433 million and Rs.192 million, respectively. Smaaash expects that it will continue to use debt to finance it business and operation.

Raw Material Costs:

Smaaash’s cost of raw materials consumed was Rs. 224.83 million and Rs. 127 million for fiscal year 2018 and the six months ended September 30, 2018, respectively.

As Smaaash incurs significant raw material costs, including import costs, and does not have long term purchase contracts with its vendors, Smaaash may be susceptible to pricing pressures or disruptions in our relationships with our vendors.

Critical Accounting Policies

In preparing its consolidated financial statements, Smaaash makes estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Smaaash bases its estimates on historical experience and various assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form its basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Smaaash’s results of operations may differ if prepared under different assumptions or conditions. Smaaash believes the following principal accounting policies affect the more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements:

Impairment reviews

IFRS requires management to undertake an annual test for impairment for finite lived assets, to test for impairment if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.

Impairment testing is an area involving management judgment, requiring assessment as to whether the carrying value of assets can be supported by the net present value of future cash flows derived from such assets using cash flow projections which have been discounted at an appropriate rate. In calculating the net present value of the future cash flows, certain assumptions are required to be made in respect of highly uncertain matters including management’s expectations of:

growth in EBITDA, calculated as operating profit before depreciation and amortization;
timing and quantum of future capital expenditures;
long-term growth rates; and
the selection of discount rates to reflect the risks involved.

Income taxes

Smaaash is subject to income taxes in a number of Indian jurisdictions. A significant amount of judgment is required to determine the amount of provision for income taxes. There are certain transactions and calculations for which the ultimate determination by the relevant taxing authorities is uncertain. Smaaash recognizes liabilities for anticipated tax audit issues based on estimates of whether additional taxes will be found to be due. Where the final tax outcome of these matters is different from the amounts that were initially recorded, such differences will impact the current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities in the period in which such determination is made. Where considered necessary, estimates are computed by management based on advice from an external specialist, such as actuaries.

Employee benefits

The present value of the employee benefit obligation is determined upon actuarial valuation made in conformity with generally accepted actuarial principles and practices by the professional actuary, industry practices and underlying assumptions. The assumptions used in determining the net cost (income) for employment benefits include mortality, retirement age, attrition rate, salary escalation rate, discount rate, and others which are done by professional actuary as per the actuary practices prevailing in India. For example, management confirmed the discount rate of 7.40% for the fiscal year 2018 and the six months ended September 30, 2018. Any changes in these assumptions will have an effect on the carrying amount of employment benefits. After considering professional advice, management determines the appropriate discount rate at the end of each fiscal year. This is the interest rate used to discount the defined benefit obligation and calculate the net interest recognized in profit or loss on the net defined benefit liability. In determining the appropriate discount rate, consideration is given to the interest rates of high quality corporate bonds that are denominated in the currency in which the benefits are to be paid and that have terms of maturity approximating the terms of the related pension obligation. For example, management confirmed the other key assumptions relevant to the defined employment benefit obligations are based in part on current market conditions.

Property, plant and equipment

Estimates of useful life

The charge in respect of periodic depreciation is derived after determining an estimate of an asset’s expected useful life and the expected residual value at the end of its life. Depreciation is charged so as to write off the cost of assets, other than land and properties under construction, using the straight-line method, over their estimated useful lives/rate of depreciation, as follows:

Type of asset Estimated useful lives (Years)
Office Equipment
Plant and machinery 8-15
Furniture & Fixtures 5-11
Vehicles
Computers
Electrical Equipments

Leasehold Improvements are amortized over the unexpired period of lease on a straight-line basis.

Increasing an asset’s expected life or its residual value would result in a reduced depreciation charge in the income statement.

The useful lives and residual values of Smaaash’s assets are determined by management at the time the asset is acquired and reviewed annually for appropriateness. The lives are based on historical experience with similar assets, certificates obtained from technical persons and anticipation of future events which may impact their life such as changes in technology. Historically changes in useful lives and residual values have not resulted in material changes to Smaaash’s depreciation charge and as of date hereof no such adjustments have been made.
