Net debt of listed developers declines 37% amid Covid

The net debt levels of listed real estate developers have declined 37 per cent since the first wave of Covid-19.

An ICICI Securities report noted that the decline in debt levels has been achieved through a combination of reduction in cost of debt by 80-160 basis points (bps), reduction in corporate overheads by 20-40 per cent from pre-Covid levels, operating cash surpluses, asset sales and equity capital raise either through the QIP route or through dilution at the SPV level.
