Brand Concept Three.png

PAST WORK


• Client is present in road construction business since 2005 and till now has had a regional presence in Gujarat & Maharashtra. It had been executing EPC for state road projects awarded by the PWD and State Authority ie MSRDC.

• As it gained expertise and improved its qualification parameters, the client ventured into National highway construction under the BOT HAM model of NHAI.

• Since these were of much larger size with considerably larger project cost, the company encountered challenge in obtaining financial closure for these projects. Concerns included its limited track record in NHAI projects, credit rating was not top notch (not in A category) and there was banker reluctance in addition due to sector and Covid slowdown.

• We structured the funding of Rs 480 Crs and Rs 710 Crs respectively for two newly awarded HAM projects. The strengths of the client were highlighted and the bankers’ concerns were properly addressed by suitable mitigants that were baked into the deal structure.

• We were successful in arranging funding tie-up for these prestigious road projects under Hybrid Annuity Model of NHAI. These were packages of the Delhi Mumbai Expressway Corridor and carry immense national significance in the infrastructure financing space/

• Guidance was also provided to the client on its credit rating from Crisil viz. how to present justification for an upgrade and to back it with rationale viz improvement in credit profile and the demonstrated execution capabilities in road sector. 

CASE STUDY ONE

CASE STUDY TWO

  • Client is a joint venture between a subsidiary of a leading global automobile giant and a Singapore based technology firm with expertise in battery and powertrain technology (with 21 patents to its name)

  • The client was looking to set up manufacturing facilities of lithium ion batteries in India, Oman, and South Korea, with a guaranteed product off-take of these JVs up to 79% of the capacity from the 3 projects.

  • We are facilitating a Rs. 8294 cr fund-raising for the Indian facility, which is expected to have a total capacity of 36 GWh, and is estimated to be set up between FY23-27.

  • The fund raise is expected to be in the form of a rupee term loan and ECB facility.

  • We have facilitated discussions with potential lenders and helped the client secure a term sheet from one of the largest public sector lenders in India.

  • The discussions are at an advanced stage and we are expecting the deal to be closed in the 1st half FY22-23.
