Conclusion / Investment Strategy

The group is a well-known entity in the stock market, its financial performance has marked de-growth in the last few quarters following the pandemic. Though this debt offer is rated AA/Stable by renowned rating agencies and coupon rates are in line with ratings, currently we are witnessing a lukewarm response to many recent debt offers as general sentiment for such instruments are subdued. Investors looking for a steady income may consider investment according to their appetite.
