The company is now coming out with its NCD offer for Rs. 200 crore (including greenshoe option of Rs. 100 crore). The issue is opening on 10.02.15 and will close on or before 11.03.15. Post allotment NCDs will be listed on BSE.

Effective yield ranges from 11.75% to 13.80% and thus the offer looks very attractive, but the rating is poor. The company is raising these funds to meet its lending business purpose. Investors can opt for allotment in demat or physical mode, but trading will take place only in demat mode.

Minimum application is to be made for 10 NCDs (i.e. Rs. 10000) and in multiples of 1 NCD thereon, thereafter. Issue is lead managed by Vivro Financial Services Pvt. Ltd. and Karvy Computershare Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. This issue is rated CARE BBB- (Triple B minus) by CARE that indicates instruments with this rating are considered to have a moderate degree of safety regarding timely servicing of financial obligations. Such instruments carry moderate credit risk. Company's NPAs have risen tremendously in the current fiscal till November 2014 end to a level of 0.78% from 0.14% (on net basis).

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

On the performance front, the company outperformed in the fiscal 2010-11, 2011-12, 2012-13 and then witnessed fall in its net profit for the fiscal 2013-14 the marked sharp fall in first eight months working. This may prove hard for it to service this debt offer going forward.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
