India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) has revised the Outlook on PNB Housing Finance Limited's (PNBHF) nonconvertible debentures (NCDs) to Negative from Stable, while affirming the rating on 'IND AA'.
The Outlook revision reflects an added uncertainty around the timing and quantum of PNBHF's capital raising, which the agency believes could be critical in view of the stress in the loan portfolio, especially on the wholesale lending. This, if sustained, the agency believes, may require stronger stress absorbing buffers. The additional capital is also important to provide support for PNBHF's loan growth, without significantly raising leverage.
