GMR Infrastructure to unlock value for its stakeholder

GMR infrastructure is all set to unlock value by listing its subsidiaries. GMR Infra is a holding company with investments engaged in specific infrastructure projects. GMR operates through five reportable segments: Airports; Power; Roads; Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC); and Others. It was formed to fund the capital requirements of various infrastructure projects across the sectors. It has successfully employed the public-private partnership model to build a portfolio of high quality assets. The financial closure of the company is over and all the subsidiaries have started generating cash flow.

GMR infra's top line is expected to rise significantly going ahead as the assets have moved from construction to operational phase. GMR infra currently operates three international airports including, one each in Delhi and Hyderabad in India; and one international airport in Philippines. GMR operate India’s largest Delhi's Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA), through a joint venture, Delhi International Airport Private Limited (DIAL) which is a joint venture between GMR (54%), Airports Authority of India (26%), Fraport AG (10%) and Malaysia Airports Private Limited (10%).Recently the group acquired 10% share from MAHB for $79 million to consolidate its holding in DIAL. DIAL also has got 230 acres of land for monetization for developing DIAL out of which the company has already Monetized 45 acres for an average consideration of Rs 88 Crore per acre in 2008-2009. DIAL has started the process to monetize the remaining land bank in the coming years.

GMR Energy Limited, subsidiary of GMR Infra has 15 Power generation assets of which 8 are operational and 7 are under various stages of development. The Power segment develops and operates power plants. The company is a major contributor to the Indian power sector through various projects across various fuel types (hydro, solar, thermal and natural gas). It has approximately 5,454 MW of generation capacity including 2,486 MW operational and 2,968 MW under construction. With the Fuel linkages issued being sorted out with the auction of coal mines, revenues from power would rise in two years. However the Focus of the group in the last 3 years has been to reduce debt and build quality assets and it has been the only infrastructure company to reduce its debt by Rs 11000 crore in the last 24months. Similarly the company would utilize the money for bringing the debt down at corporate level from Rs 7000 crore to Rs 3500 crore in the next 2 years. In the recent past quality IPO’s with good management pedigree like Sharda Cropchem. & Inox Winds with reasonable pricing have garnered significant investor interest and have been oversubscribed showing interest for quality paper.
