SREI Equipment Finance 9.92% Non-Convertible Debentures (NCDs) – July 2017 Issue Details
Infrastructure finance space has been facing a really difficult time over the past few years. But, off late it has been recovering well for the company and it has been able to improve on its asset quality front. The company has been able to contain its gross NPAs from 4.97% in FY14 to 2.48% in FY17 and net NPAs from 4.07% to 1.76% in the same period. However, this improvement has come at the cost of a slowdown in its revenue growth and net interest income.
Worst is probably not over for the company. But going ahead, with an expected improvement in the economy and the infrastructure space, the company is likely to do better and grow at a relatively higher speed.

Investors, with an appetite of taking some risk and who fall in the lower tax brackets, can consider investing in these NCDs. But, as the investment period is long, the investors would do well to be vigilant about the company’s asset quality and loan growth going forward.
In a falling interest rate scenario, 9.92% effective yield is quite attractive. But then 10 years is a long period to invest with a private company. Out of the nine options available, I would personally prefer Series I, with monthly interest payment option, as I would like to get back my principal investment amount and the interest thereon with a private company as early as possible.
