DLF land monetizing pace picks up but concerns on unsold inventory remain
Posted on 20th September 2019
DLF Ltd’s sale of a nine-acre land parcel in Gurugram to multinational bank American Express (India) Pvt. Ltd (Amex) is positive for its commercial property business. The timing of the ₹300 crore deal is right too as the stage was set for DLF’s next phase of growth after it resurrected itself from the huge debt stranglehold.

Importantly, the deal sets the pace for more land monetization in the region, where DLF owns around 120 acres. This is in addition to the group’s rental portfolio of about 33 million square feet (sq. ft), which is one of the largest in the country.

According to Edelweiss Securities Ltd, “about 22.5 million sq. ft worth of development potential (excluding Chennai commercial project), transfer of certain commercial assets from DLF to DLF Cyber City Developers Ltd (DCCDL) (in lieu of debt settlement) and an upward revision in rents for expiring leases would drive an uptick in revenue going ahead."

Apart from enjoying around 95% occupancy, the realty firm has more commercial assets that will be operational in the near term, adding to rental cash flows. In its Q1FY20 investor presentation, DLF has guided for ₹3,800 crore annual rental income (FY19: ₹2,900 crore). Investor confidence comes from the fact that the lease rentals that are due for renewals have a 20-30% upside, given the market rates in the region have risen.

Meanwhile, pre-sales of ₹700 crore in Q1FY20, mainly in the luxury segment is good news. However, there have hardly been any new residential project launches not just from DLF but peers too, indicating caution in the market.

Also, a lean balance sheet after its recent qualified institutional placement and promoter funds infusion would improve cash flows in the coming quarters. Recall, after DLF languished for nearly a decade under mounting debt (about ₹25,000 crore in FY18), it is now down to about ₹3,600 crore.

That said, DLF’s valuation and stock price is weighed down by the weak investor sentiment towards the real estate sector. The stock, which trades at ₹156 a piece has lost 33% since April underperforming the broader Nifty realty index. Perhaps the risk of residual unsold inventory in housing remains an overhang, although one must note that the promoters’ conversion of warrants to equity was at ₹215.25 a share.

Maharashtra: BJP afraid MLAs may defect, says NCP’s Nawab Malik
Posted on 16th November 2019

SAT pulls up Sebi for 'shabby' handling of complaints from investor
Posted on 16th November 2019
The Securities and Appellate Tribunal (SAT) has hauled up the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) for giving computer-generated response to investor complaints filed on its online platform Scores and for disposing of the matter without settling the case.

“We find the approach adopted by Sebi to be a strange one. Such computer-generated disposal of a serious complaint speaks volumes on the conduct in treating the minority shareholders in this shabby manner,” the tribunal said while delivering a judgment on a matter related to an investor complaint.

The Supreme Court on Friday brought down the curtains on an epic battle for debt-laden Essar Steel, paving the entry of the world’s largest steel maker, ArcelorMittal, into the second-biggest steel market, India.

In a ruling that would have a far-reaching impact on cases under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), the apex court has set aside the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) order that put a different class of creditors — financial vis-a-vis operational creditors as also secured and unsecured financial creditors — on a par.
