Another milestone for IFMR Capital

Save Post


After executing its largest Multi-Originator transaction involving 7 microfinance institutions, IFMR Capital recently closed one of its largest Single Originator transactions this financial year, with one of the leading MFIs in the country, Ujjivan Financial Services.

It recently structured and arranged a Rs. 401 million securitisation transaction backed by 45,954 microloans originated by Ujjivan Financial Services. This is the sixth capital market transaction for Ujjivan and second securitisation transaction. Ujjivan has raised debt capital through issuance of listed, secured, redeemable, non-convertible debentures in the last and current financial year.

KRIOS PIONEER IFMR CAPITAL 2011, the Special Purpose Vehicle created for the transaction, has issued two tranches of securities rated by CRISIL, India’s foremost rating agency:  an 89.5% senior tranche rated CRISIL A1(So) that was subscribed to by a NBFC and a 10.5% subordinated junior tranche that was invested into by IFMR Capital. Both tranches have an expected maturity of 9 months.

The structure created by IFMR Capital ensures that the incentives of the originator, servicer and structure are aligned. While the originator and servicer, Ujjivan, provides cash collateral as first loss. The structurer, IFMR Capital, has invested in the subordinated junior tranche. The cash collateral and the subordination of payments to junior tranche in the waterfall mechanism ensures that the senior investor is protected against losses and any first loss is borne by the originator and the second loss by the structurer.
