Financial Analysis
Ø Capital Adequacy Ratio: 16.16 % (As on 31/3/2011)

Ø Debt/Equity Ratio: 5.59 Times (As on 31/3/2011) #

Ø Net NPA: .02% (As on 31/3/2011)

Ø Interest Coverage Ratio: 1.27 (As on 31/3/2011)

Ø Debt Ratio: 85%

# Which shall increase further after this issue
Though net NPA and CAR (Capital Adequacy Ratio) are satisfactory but Interest coverage ratio indicates that company is facing problem in paying the interest rate and that is why some portion of this issue shall be used for the repayment of the loan to reduce the interest burden. Debt equity ratio was already high and after this issue it shall further increase.
Investor should understand that higher interest rate is due to the higher risk (in comparison with bank FD’s) involved. NCDs from private players are a tad riskier than banks FDs and that’s why they give more return and therefore allocation should depend  on ones risk appetite and liquidity requirement (in rare cases there may be delay in interest payment due to technical reasons ).Credit ratings from rating agency might reduce if company again taps the market with new issues.
Investor may invest some portion of capital according to their risk appetite.Traditional investors who are strictly risk-averse should stay away from this NCD and better continue with their bank FD’s.
