The company is offering Secured Redeemable Non-Convertible debentures of face value of Rs. 1000 each and has a coupon rate ranging from 12% to 13% based on tenure and the option selected by the investor. Tenure for these NCDs are for 390 days to 66 months and has monthly and cumulative schemes.

Except option VII all other options are eligible for 50 bps extra interest for Ex-servicemen, Senior Citizens and eligible employees.

The company plans to raise Rs. 75 crore with an option to keep Rs. 25 crore in addition in case of oversubscription and thus the total offer size is for Rs. 100 crore. The offer is available for allotment in demat and physical mode but trading will take place only in demat mode. CARE has assigned CARE BB+ rating to this offer indicating moderate risk of default regarding timely servicing of financial obligations. Vivro Financial Services Pvt Ltd is the lead manager to the offer and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the offer. Post allotment NCDs will be listed on BSE.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

Although it is offering a higher rate of interest to lure investors, poor rating and unknown unlisted company with remote lead manager's mandate, it is better to keep away.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
