How Indiabulls Housing Finance is Deleveraging its Balance Sheet

Indiabulls Housing Finance to reduce debt
by 5paisa Research Team 27/09/2021

In the last few years, most NBFCs including those in the housing finance space, have been under pressure at two levels. Firstly, there was an asset liability mismatch in most books as HFCs were borrowing short end and lending for homes, which is normally long end.

Secondly, most NBFCs were facing cash flows problems in servicing their loan repayments, putting them at solvency risk. That was because, in the midst of the liquidity crunch, cash flows were not coming in regularly.

One of the NBFCs that has put in an effort to rectify this problem and deleverage the balance sheet is Mumbai-based Indiabulls Finance. The stock had come under a lot of pressure over NPA concerns, its exposure to Yes Bank and asset liability mismatch.

It has cleaned up its balance sheet to become fully matched in terms of ALM (asset liability management). It has also become significantly positive on cash flows, to the extent that it has also started creating reserves for future redemptions.

To underscore its commitment, Indiabulls Housing Finance recently repaid NCDs worth Rs.7,076 crore ahead of schedule. This included a sum of Rs.6,576 crore borrowed by Indiabulls Housing and its subsidiary ICCL in Sep-16 and Sep-18 respectively.

There was also an NCD of Rs.500 crore issued by Indiabulls Housing way back in September 2011. These NCDs aggregating to Rs.7,076 crore were all repaid ahead of schedule. In dollar terms, the amount repaid is around $960 million.

In addition, Indiabulls has gone one step ahead and created a special redemption reserve for bonds maturing in May 2022 worth $350 million. Indiabulls will transfer 75% of these maturity proceeds to a debt repayment trust managed by IDBI Trustee Company.

The first tranche has already been transferred in Aug-21. The second tranche will be transferred in Nov-21 and the last tranche in Feb-22. Three-fourth of the redemption proceeds will be set aside 3-months ahead of maturity date.

Indiabulls not only wants to prove a point on its solvency but also wants to give comfort and reassurance to bond holders and shareholders that the company’s finances are in fine fettle. This should give a boost to sentiments.

The revenues overall are down over the last 3 years but that is due to the lower expense ratio insisted upon by SEBI. That has been partially compensated by the higher equity flows, but the shortfall still remains. However, the profits have been boosted through leaner operations, digital initiatives and lower asset impairment requirements.

Investment Perspective for Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC Ltd

This will only be the fourth AMC to be listed and here are some investment arguments.

a) In terms of relative valuations, it is cheaper than HDFC AMC and Nippon Mutual Fund but more expensive than UTI Mutual Fund. Lower equity AUM will be an issue.

b) The indicative market cap of Birla AMC at Rs.20,505 crore is about 7.5% of the total assets under management. This is at par with the rate at which most sale deals have happened, so the headroom may be limited.

c) In the last few months, there has been a distinct shift towards hybrids, gold funds and passive funds. That is likely to maintain the pressure on the top line growth of the mutual fund industry in general.

At the current market cap of Rs.20,505 crore the IPO does appear fully valued. It may not be a value enhancer in the short term, but over the long term it still remains a veritable play on the big financial savings shift happening in India.

Upcoming IPOs to raise Rs.45,000 Crore in Oct-Nov

Upcoming IPOs
by 5paisa Research Team 27/09/2021

The first 6 months of the fiscal year 2021-22 will end with collections of Rs.78,520 crore. If you exclude Birla Sun Life opening on 29th Sep as well as the Power Grid INVIT and the Brookefield REIT, still Rs.64,200 crore has been collected this fiscal. Investors will get a picture of the second half in the first two months of October and November.

The months of October and November will set the tone for the IPO collections in the rest of the year. Nearly 50% of the collections of the first half came in July and August with September being a relatively quiet month. It is now estimated that nearly Rs.45,000 crore could be raised across 40 IPOs in October and November. We are not counting the Rs.16,600 crore Paytm IPO, which could move to Dec-21 or Jan-22.

In October and November, you can expect a mix of digital and non-digital IPOs as under.

IPO Amount

Non-Digital IPOs

Emcure Pharma




CMS Infosystems


MobiKwik Systems


Northern Arc Capital




Sapphire Foods


RateGain Travel Tech


Fincare SFB




Sterlite Power




Supriya Lifesciences


The above table is just an illustrative list of some prominent names. In total, it is expected that 40 companies will be raising close to Rs.64,000 crore via IPOs in next 2 months. It will also set the tone for larger IPOs like Paytm as well as the divestment of LIC and BPCL in the Mar-22 quarter.

For now, this promises to be the best year for IPO collections in history, beating the record collections in the year 2017. However, the 2017 IPO boom was dominated by the mega insurance IPOs of GIC Re, New India Assurance, HDFC Life, SBI Life and ICICI Lombard. This time it is more of a technology driven IPO boom. It remains to be seen how enthusiastically the market is able to absorb the supply of larger IPOs. That will be the acid test.

Paradeep Phosphates gets SEBI approval for IPO

Paradeep Phosphates gets SEBI approval for IPO
by 5paisa Research Team 28/09/2021

The Rs.1,255 crore fresh issue plus OFS, for which Paradeep Phosphates had filed the DRHP with SEBI in August 2021, has got SEBI approval for the IPO. The next step would be to factor in any comments of SEBI and then file the Red Herring Prospectus (RHP) with the Registrar Of Companies (ROC). The issue date is normally finalized after the RHP filing.

Paradeep Phosphates is currently 80.45% owned by Zuari Maroc Phosphates Private Limited and 19.55% owned by the Government of India. The overall issue will consist of Rs.1,255 crore fresh issue by the company to raise capital as well as an offer for sale of 12 crore shares by the existing shareholders viz. Zuari Maroc and Government of India.

As per the DRHP filed with SEBI, the government of India will offer 11.25 crore shares while Zuari Maroc Phosphates will offer 75 lakh shares as part of the offer for sale portion. The government stake will substantially reduce in this OFS and will add to its disinvestment receipts for fiscal year 2021-22. India has a divestment target of Rs.175,000 crore for FY22.

While the OFS portion will not alter the equity capital of the company, the fresh issue portion of Rs.1,255 crore will lead to expansion of the equity base and the dilution of earnings per share. The fresh issue proceeds will be used by the company for acquiring a fertilizer facility in Goa and repaying some of its debt to deleverage the balance sheet.

Paradeep Phosphates manufactures complex fertilizers like di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) and three grades of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium (NPK) fertilizers. The fertilizers manufactured by Paradeep Phosphates are currently marketed under the brands of “Navratna” and the Jai Kisaan Navratna”. 

The current year has been a solid year for the IPOs and looks all set to better the tally of 2017. Also, there are mega issues like Policybazaar, Nykaa, Paytm and LIC that are slated to hit the IPO market during the current fiscal.
