Indiabulls Commercial Credit Limited NCD Credit strengths:
As on December 31, 2021, the housing loan AUM stood at ~Rs. 52,340 crore compared to ~Rs. 78,600 crore as on September 30, 2018. This was because of the subdued disbursements starting Q3 FY2019 with the onset of the liquidity crisis for the sector. IBHFL remains one of the top HFCs in the country, despite the decline in the housing loan AUM. The share of the housing loan segment in the company’s AUM stood increased at 71% as of December 31, 2021 compared to 61% as on September 30, 2018. This is due to the sharp decline in the commercial credit AUM during this period. Going forward, IBHFL’s loan book is expected to remain range-bound as disbursements are unlikely to exceed collections over the near term.
The improvement in the CRAR in FY2021 was supported by the fresh equity raise of ~Rs. 683 crore and the sale of a stake in OakNorth Holdings for ~Rs. 1,988 crore. IBHFL sold a further stake in OakNorth Holdings for ~Rs. 278 crore, in H1 FY2022. The company’s gearing stood at 3.4 times as on December 31, 2021, compared to 4.1 times as on March 31, 2021, and 4.9 times as on March 31, 2020. Adjusting the cash and bank balances and investments, the net gearing stood lower at 2.8 times as on December 31, 2021, compared to 3.3 times as on March 31, 2021.
The company has long-term credit ratings of “AA; Stable” from CRISIL, “AA; Negative” from CARE Ratings Limited (“CARE Ratings”), and “BWR AA+ /Stable” from Brickwork Ratings India Private Limited (“Brickwork”) (for the long-term loans and non-convertible debentures) and “[ICRA]AA (Stable)” from ICRA (for our retail nonconvertible debentures). Additionally, we have a credit rating of “AA; Stable” from CRISIL, “AA; Negative” from CARE Ratings, and “BWR AA+ /Stable” from Brickwork in relation to the subordinated debt programme. We also have a credit rating of “CRISIL A1+” from CRISIL, “CARE A1+” from CARE Ratings, and “BWR A1+” from Brickwork in relation to our commercial paper borrowing. The company’s strong financial record and high credit ratings position it to take advantage of the growth in the NBFC industry, provide it with significant competitive advantages, contribute to the growth of our business, and provide a high degree of comfort to our stakeholders.
Indiabulls Commercial Credit Limited NCD Credit challenges:
The commercial credit book includes lease rental discounting (LRD) loans to builders and construction finance. Given the large ticket size and the high inherent risks associated with these exposures, the commercial credit book remains exposed to concentration risks. The increased challenges for the real estate sector due to the pandemic-related lockdowns heightened the portfolio vulnerability
ICRA expects IBHFL’s profitability to remain subdued (RoA in the range of 1.0- 1.5%) over the near term, given the existing challenges in terms of growth and credit costs. ICRA notes that the company is in the process of transitioning to a new business model with a focus on retail loans originating through a mix of channels such as co-origination and origination for sell-down. The company’s ability to realize these plans and achieve material scale and profitability would remain critical from a credit perspective.
The company also faces prepayment risk, given the possibility of debt acceleration upon the breach of covenants, including financial covenants, operating covenants, and rating-linked covenants. Upon failure to meet the covenants, if IBHFL is not able to get waivers from the lenders/investors or the lenders/investors do not provide adequate time to arrange for alternative funding to pay off the accelerated loans, the rating could face pressure.
