11 June 2010 - Indian credit rating agency CRISIL cut yesterday to B- from B the rating while keeping the "negative" outlook on the long-term bank facilities of Mahameru Fashion Apparel Ltd.
The downgrade reflects CRISILA[cent sign]a'[not sign]a"[cent sign]s belief that Mahameru will face pressure in repayment of its term loan instalment commencing from June 2010.
The ratings reflect Mahameru's low revenue visibility, below average financial risk profile, marked by high gearing and poor debt-protection indicators, and exposure to risks relating to intense competition and fragmented industry.
CRISIL expects Mahameru's liquidity to be stretched over the medium-term because of its inadequate operational cash flows vis-a-vis its upcoming term-debt-related repayments.
