In a statement the company said,
- The semiconductor shortage situation is expected to continue in quarter two as well. The additional capacity for semiconductors is expected to be available in the second half and this should help stabilise the industry passenger vehicle (PV) volumes.

SREI’s Rs 350 bn Loan
Banks may classify Rs 350 bn loan given to SREI group as non performing asset (NPA) by the end of this quarter ending in September after the national company law tribunal (NCLT) set aside the previous order restraining banks from such classification.
On 7 September, the national company law appellate tribunal (NCLAT) set aside a 30 December 2020 order issued by the Kolkata bench of the NCLT which said that any non-payment of dues by SREI Infrastructure Finance and SREI Equipment Finance will not be recognised as an event of default, till a scheme of arrangement is signed by all creditors, which included its lenders as well as bond holders.
While many banks have already downgraded loans to SREI Equipment Finance and SREI Infrastructure Finance as stressed loans in the last quarter, accelerated provisioning will be made in the current quarter.

Public sector banks Indian Bank and Canara Bank have exposures of Rs 20 bn and Rs 12 bn, respectively, to Kolkata-based SREI group, while private sector banks ICICI Bank and Axis Bank have Rs 8 bn each.
Since 2019, the company has been pursuing a merger of its two group companies, SREI Infrastructure and SREI Equipment Finance.
In December 2020, the NCLT granted relief to SREI by directing banks and financial institutions to not take any coercive action against the company after it had approached the NCLT bench requesting moratorium on coupon payments and postponement of redemption dates until the merger is complete.
However, UCO bank along with the Reserve Bank of India appealed against the order in NCLAT.
SREI Infrastructure Finance share price ended the day down by 4.2% on the BSE.
Speaking of the current stock market scenario, note that the BSE smallcap index has surged around 180% since the crash in March 2020.
Despite the index being up more than 1.8 times, Richa Agarwal, lead Smallcap Analyst at Equitymaster, believes smallcap stocks are set for a massive up move in 2021 and beyond.
The Smallcap to Sensex ratio, a metric referred to get a sense of relative valuations, currently stands at 0.48 times. To be sure, this is higher than a median of 0.43 times.
And yet, it’s the lowest of all the peaks in the smallcaps so far. In the last cycle which peaked in January 2018, when the ratio touched 0.49, the peak was still 9 months away.
Here’s what Richa wrote in a recent edition of Profit Hunter…
- When it comes to buying smallcap stocks, especially at this point in the rebound rally, you will need a bottom up approach, and a long term horizon.
In fact, if you don’t have the stomach to withstand a 20%-30% kind of corrections and volatility, this space may not be for you at all. And you should stop reading right here.
