Long-term Bank Facilities Short-term Bank Facilities CARE A+ PR1+
Rating CARE has assigned a ‘CARE A+’ [Single A Plus] rating to the Long-term Bank Facilities aggregating Rs.35.96 cr of Caparo Maruti Limited (CML). This rating is applicable for facilities having tenure of more than one year. Facilities with this rating are considered to offer adequate safety for timely servicing of debt obligations. Such facilities carry low credit risk. Also, CARE has assigned a ‘PR1+’ [PR One Plus] rating to the Short-term Bank Facilities aggregating Rs.4.50 cr of CML. This rating is applicable for facilities having tenure up to one year. Facilities with this rating would have strong capacity for timely payment of short-term debt obligations and carry lowest credit risk. CARE assigns ‘+’ or ‘-’ signs to be shown after the assigned rating (wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position within the band covered by the rating symbol. The ratings draw strength from the experienced promoters, strong business association with Maruti Suzuki India Ltd. (MSIL) with over 95% sales over the years emanating from MSIL for various models, favourable capital structure marked by low gearing levels and efficient working capital management. The ratings are constrained by CML’s moderate scale of operations, limited diversification and risks associated with frequent capex requirement for scaling up the operations. Going forward, ability of CML to sustain growth in sales and profitability and effective completion and efficient operations of the ongoing projects shall be the key rating sensitivities.
