Company Background

The company 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. On the other hand, 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. Consequently, there is considerable stress on the company’s tome. For Q1FY14, company’s consolidated total income was Rs. 783 crore and PAT Rs. 47 crore.


The present Non-Convertible Debentures issue carries attractive returns transversely maturities, with yields of 11.50 percent to 11.75 percent for five years being the highest for folks. On the other hand, the SREI Infrastructure Finance is not the best placed in the sector witnessing tremendous stress and uncertainty. Comparison with SREI Infrastructure Finance preceding issue made earlier this year cannot be made as the liquidity is incredibly meager on Bombay Stock Exchange, with scarcely a duo of trades taking place in a calendar day and yields nearing 17 percent for the five year instrument.


For this reason, only those with a high risk appetite must go for the five year Non-Convertible Debentures – Series III or IV, preferably the latter which carries lower re-investment risk.
