RATING ACTION / OUTLOOK / NATURE OF NON-COOPERATION

Brickwork Ratings has downgraded the ratings of the long-term bank loan facilities for Rs.41.36 Crs of  Khaitan Winding Wire Pvt. Ltd to BWR BB-/Stable from BWR BB/Stable and the reaffirming rating for their short-term bank loan facilities for Rs. 11.00 crores to BWR A4 (aggregate rated amount Rs.52.36 crores) and continued the ratings into “ISSUER NOT COOPERATING” category, based on best available information as the Issuer did not cooperate.

The rating was due for review on 15 June 2024. BWR took up with the issuer consistently to provide the required information over emails apart from telephonic communication, but no response has been received from the client. Further, BWR is unable to reach the banker, thus the banker’s feedback regarding the conduct of the account is not available. The company has also not submitted the NDS regularly. Despite the best efforts of BWR to get at least the minimum required information for the review, the entity has not provided the same.  In the absence of adequate information from the company, BWR is unable to assess the company’s financial performance and its ability to service its debt and maintain a valid rating. Hence, based on best available information, non-availability of information on continuation/curing of default, continued lack of management cooperation, non-submission of NDS, and lack of banker’s feedback, BWR has reaffirmed the long-term and short-term rating and continued the ratings Issuer Not Cooperating* category, as the Issuer did not cooperate.

In the absence of management cooperation on the part of the company to provide adequate information/documents for a review within the required timelines despite follow-up, coupled with non-submission of NDS and lack of banker's feedback, BWR is unable to assess the company's current financial performance or its ability to service its debt and maintain a valid rating. Accordingly, keeping in view the regulatory guidelines in this regard, the long-term rating is downgraded to BWR BB-/Stable, and the short-term rating is reaffirmed to BWR A4 and continued the ratings into “ISSUER NOT COOPERATING” category, based on best available information as the Issuer did not cooperate.

The lenders/investors may note to exercise due caution while using the above rating which mentions "Issuer Not Cooperating" since the rating lack any projections or forward-looking component as it is arrived at based on the best available information without any management/banker's interaction.

 

LIMITATIONS OF THE RATING

Information availability risk is a key factor in the assessment of credit risk as generally, non-cooperation by the rated entities to provide required information for a review of the assigned rating may also be accompanied by financial stress.Users of the
credit rating should therefore take into account the possible deterioration in the credit quality of the rated entity arising from its non- transparency and withholding of the information required for a review of the rating.
