Muthoot Finance Ltd Logo

This NBFC having a major role in gold financing is a frequent visitor to capital market with debt offers. Having floated offer for Rs. 500 crore in September 2012 ( got around Rs. 287 crore) and for Rs. 300 crore in September 2013 ( got around Rs. 325 crore) it has again planned NCD offer for Rs. 300 crore that opened for subscription on 18.11.13 and will close on 02.12.13.

The issue is rated AA-/Negative by ICRA and CRISIL and thus it is a lower-rated debt offer. The issue is lead managed by ICICI Securities Ltd and registrar to the issue is Link Intime India Pct. Ltd. Each bond is having a face value of Rs. 1000 and varied coupon rate based on tenure (24 months to 60 months) and interest receiving option has interest rates ranging from 10.75% to 12.25% on different categories. Minimum application is to be made for 10 NCDs (i.e. Rs. 10000). It will be listed on BSE post allotment.

Looking at the last five fiscal's financials, the trend of top and bottom line indicated doubling pattern for fiscal 2010, 2011 and 2012 with commensurate rise in profits, but for 2013 it top and bottom line has shown growth of just around 20%. Its NPA are also growing year-on-year from 0.48% (2010) to 2.08% in Q1 of current fiscal. Though it is around 2% of the total lending, it is really alarming.

Conclusion / Investment Strategy

The company is the leader in gold financing sector and has pan India presence, but looking at the current trends for the industry, this offer is not worth considering at lucrative rates that are being offered.

Reviewer recommends Avoid to the issue.
