Mr. Bharat Pareek, Head of Treasury, DHFL, said,
“Over the last few years, DHFL has been reporting high growth in an increasingly competitive landscape. These are exciting times for DHFL as it strengthens its commitment to actively expand financial inclusion across India and provide greater impetus to the Government’s mission of Housing for All by 2022. The launch of DHFL’s third public issue NCD at this critical phase of growth is set to provide a strong thrust to the company’s growth plans as we progress towards the next phase of high growth. It also allows us to diversify our borrowing portfolio..
In line with DHFL’s efforts to always bring value-addition to its stakeholders, the company has introduced a floater rate NCD which is benchmarked to Overnight MIBOR. Investors in MIBOR linked NCDs will receive interest based on Overnight MIBOR rate published by FBIL compounded daily and payable annually. We are also offering an attractive interest rate of upto 9.10% p.a., one-time additional incentive of upto 1.00% to initial subscribers on maturity and an additional interest of 0.10% p.a for senior citizens. Backed by strong stakeholder trust and our unwavering commitment towards enabling affordable housing dreams, I am confident that DHFL will once again report yet another successful NCD issuance to achieve its ambitious growth plans.”
The minimum application amount is Rs.10,000 collectively across all options on NCDs and in multiples of One (1) NCD after the minimum application. Allotment is on a first-come-first-serve basis (except on the date of oversubscription, if any, when all the investors applying on the said date will get allotment on a proportionate basis). Investors have an option to apply for NCDs in dematerialized as well as in physical form.
Floating Interest Rate NCD
In Series VII, the tenor is 3 years and the coupon rate is Benchmark MIBOR plus spread of 2.16%. Benchmark MIBOR is the Reference Overnight MIBOR published by FBIL computed on an annualised basis and is subject to reset annually based on Overnight MIBOR benchmark rates. Floating Interest rate payable at the end of 1st year will be Benchmark MIBOR for the relevant Calculation Period plus applicable fixed spread of 2.16%. As an example, Overnight MIBOR of 6.01% compounded on an annualised basis is 6.19%. This will be computed again for the relevant Calculation Period for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Interest Payment Dates.
Benefits to senior citizens
Category III and Category IV Investors in the proposed Tranche 1 Issue who are senior citizens on the Deemed Date of Allotment shall be eligible for an additional interest rate of 0.10% p.a. provided the NCDs issued under the proposed Tranche 1 Issue are continued to be held by such investors under Category III and Category IV on the relevant Record Date applicable for payment of respective coupons.
