  • The past year has been progressive for the infrastructure financing sector in many ways. Bank credit has grown at a rate of 19 per cent during 2018- 19. Continuation of the current government has lent confidence to investors and lenders. New products such as InvITs have started to gain acceptance. The investor community has expanded to include a whole range of investors (PE funds, pension and insurance funds, SWFs and asset reconstruction companies). 
  • After a long gap, it seems that the lender and investor community is warming up once again to the infrastructure sectors 
  • The RBI’s agenda for the resolution of non-performing assets has played a key role in bringing down the stressed advances ratio in infrastructure from 22.6 per cent in March 2018 to 17.8 per cent in March 2019. The central bank has also introduced a revised prudential framework for stressed assets. The revised circular has allowed lenders to take defaulters to the bankruptcy court; extended the applicability of the framework to include a larger universe of lenders comprising small banks and NBFCs; and introduced penal provisions for lenders. 
  • At the same time, there is greater prudence on the part of developers both in terms of bidding for new projects and hiving off operational/non-core assets to deleverage balance sheets and recycle money.
  • These developments have enabled products like InvITs to gain uptake in the financial space. Till date, six InvITs have been launched and another four are in the pipeline. In addition, public sector assets in segments such as roads, pipelines, railway tracks, transmission grids, airports and ports are being identified for monetisation through the creation of such unit trusts. 
  • PE investors and venture capitalists have invested about Rs 750 billion in infrastructure sectors during 2018-19, a record number in the past five years. Operating/yield-generating assets with a good track record have become the flavour of the day. This has resulted in better valuations, reduced risks and more realistic return expectations. 
  • These investments have been largely driven by global pension and sovereign wealth funds, which were a part of some of the largest transactions in 2018. They are looking for both direct opportunities as well as co-investing options with limited partners. 
  • Meanwhile, the government has proposed to put in place an action plan for deepening the corporate bond market, with a special focus on the infrastructure sectors. Besides, measures such as mandating large companies to meet 25 per cent of their incremental borrowings from the bond market, and withdrawal of the 20 per cent limit on FPI in corporate bonds, are expected to encourage bond issues. That said, the Indian bond market is yet to mature due to the lack of liquidity in the secondary market and extremely low appetite for bonds below the AA-level rating. The next step should be towards plotting a long-term yield curve, which is the closest proxy to the sovereign yield curve. 
  • On the IDF front, the success has been limited as there is still reluctance on the part of banks to part with operational projects. However, given that a significant pool of assets in sectors such as roads and renewables is eligible for refinancing, the growth potential for NBFC-IDF is quite significant. 
  • Meanwhile, the NBFCs are facing difficult market conditions, which have impacted their wholesale lending activity, especially post the IL&FS crisis. The credit quality of many NBFCs was weighed down due to the high borrowing cost of funds and the liquidity crisis. 
  • Going forward, the long-term financing needs of the sector can be taken care of by attracting patient capital. It is important, therefore, to continue the efforts towards tapping alternative sources such as bonds, IDFs and InvITs. While the response from the investor community has been encouraging, regulatory impediments for each of these products need to be addressed to enable them to unlock the value in existing assets. 
  • The mission of this conference is to discuss the latest trends and developments in infrastructure financing, analyse the progress of new funding instruments, examine the challenges and highlight the sector-specific investment opportunities
