SREI Infra tumbles after credit rating downgrade
(11:56, 12 Sep 2019)
The finance company has informed that its long-term secured non-convertible debentures (NCDs) worth Rs 2,800.66 crore was rated 'BWR A+/Negative' from 'BWR AA/Negative'. Long-term unsecured non-convertible debentures (NCDs) worth Rs 1,426.41 crore was rated 'BWR A+/Negative' from 'BWR AA/Negative'. Long-term issuer rating was downgraded to 'BWR A+/Negative' from 'BWR AA/Negative'. (Perpetual) IPDI worth Rs 100 crore was downgraded to 'BWR BBB+/Negative' from “BWR A+/Negative' and short-term commercial papers worth Rs 1,000 crore was rated 'BWR A1' from 'BWR A1+'. The announcement was made after trading hours yesterday, 11 September 2019.

Brickwork Ratings stated that the rating of SREI Infrastructure Finance (SIFL) were downgraded considering the decreasing asset base, weak asset quality due to weak credit profile of the portfolio, significant decrease in profitability in Q1FY20 due to increasing interest cost and higher provisions, declining capital adequacy ratio, continued high gearing against an expectation of significant reduction in gearing through capital infusion and liquidity stress faced by NBFC sector affecting the borrowing capacity of the company.

However, the rating continues to derive comfort from the experience of the promoter group in the line of infrastructure financing and equipment financing businesses, established market position and brand name and adequate liquidity profile.

The outlook continues to be negative considering the risk of further weakening of asset quality, declining profitability and AUM and to monitor the ability of SIFL to borrow for continued growth while maintaining its cost of funds and profit margins. The ability to reduce its gearing is also a key monitorable.”
