Company Background:

SREI Infrastructure Finance provides financial products and services for infrastructure development and construction. For FY13, consolidated total income stood at Rs. 3,110 crore with PAT of Rs. 263 crore and AUMs of Rs. 33,330 crore, as of 31st March 2013. However, its asset quality deteriorated sharply, with gross NPAs surging to 2.77% from 1.58% of 31st March 2012, and net NPAs nearly doubling to 2.30%, from 1.18% a year ago. Thus, there is considerable stress on the company’s books. For Q1FY14, company’s consolidated total income was Rs. 783 crore and PAT Rs. 47 crore.  

 

Recommendation:

The current NCD issue carries attractive returns across maturities, with yields of 11.50%-11.75% for 5 years being the highest for individuals. However, the company is not the best placed in the sector witnessing tremendous stress and uncertainty. Comparison with company’s previous issue made earlier this year cannot be made as the liquidity is very meager on BSE, with barely a couple of trades occurring in a day and yields nearing 17% for the 5 year instrument.

 

Hence, only those with a high risk appetite must go for the 5 year NCDs - Series III or IV, preferably the latter which carries lower re-investment risk.
