Financial Analysis
Ø  Capital Adequacy Ratio: 20.53% (FY 11)
Ø  Debt/Equity Ratio: 6.66 post issue
Ø  Gross NPA: 1.86%
Ø  Net NPA:  .43%
Ø  Interest Coverage Ratio: 1.51
Fundamentals of this SCUF NCD are not as good as the previous STFC NCD from the same Shriram group; whether Debt-Equity Ratio, Capital Adequacy Ratio Or Interest Coverage Ratio, STFC NCD holds an edge over this issue.
Capital protection should be the first priority of investors and not the higher interest rates. Instruments with higher-risk offers more interest rates than their low-risk counterparts.
Investor may skip this issue as more NCDs are lining up in coming days, and it shall be always better to buy STFC NCD from the secondary market than applying for this issue.
