  12. 12. Why Restructuring was/is required • High Cost Debt (15%-16%) & Foreign Currency Loans accumulated in the Company for acquisitions amounting to Rs. 10,500 Crs for RE Power, Germany and Rs. 2,500 Crs in Hansen, Belgium. • The Company launched its heavier turbines without conducting crucial test for exploiting demand-supply gap and the blades cracked – same resulted in $ 10 Crs as expenses for repairing of the turbine blades. • US based customer Edison Mission refused to make payment of Rs. 1,081 Crs due to technical default in turbines. • The Company took term loans for 3-5 years whereas the Business Model for Wind Farm Revenues/Returns was for longer period 13-15 years. • Inability to repatriate cash from German Subsidiary (RE Power) due to Ring Fencing rule in Germany & Objection by the Bankers of the Subsidiary Company. • The foreign bond holders refused extension of loan resulting in default in loan repayment by the Company in Oct 2012 (Rs. 1,300 Crs). • Working Capital Shortage in the Company as the banks were not lending further the Company was unable to execute the order book with the Company ($ 7.1 Bn).
  13. 13. Why Restructuring was/is required • Global slow down in Wind Energy Industry due to Global Crisis in 2008. • Penalties were being levied on the Company for the delay in execution of Projects. • • Synergies envisaged from RE Power’s acquisitions did not yield immediate results. Company is incurring losses in the last 3 financial years & has huge debts – both domestic & international. The same has resulted in weak financial position. There were losses due to FX Fluctuation on the Foreign Currency Loans. Operating Revenues reduced from Rs. 7K Crs to Rs. 1.7K Crs). Operational Cost – RM cost was 75% of Revenues in 2012-13 as against 65% in 201112. Total Operational Cost was 99% of Revenues in 2012-13 as against from 80% in 2011-12. In the Standalone Suzlon – there are Operational Inefficiencies with RM cost being 97% of Revenues in 2012-13 as against 65% in 2011-12. Total Operational Cost was 173% of Revenues in 2012-13 as against 87% in 2011-12. Significant cash flows from operations have been utilized for payment of bank dues and therefore the Suzlon and its domestic subsidiaries have insufficient money (shortage of working capital) to continue operations. Roll-back of rules related to Generation Based Incentives (GBI) & Accelerated Depreciation in India. • • • • • •
  14. 14. Highlights of Restructuring Scheme (CDR) • • • • • • • • • The CDR Proposal was recommended by SBI, the lead lender (Rs. 3,500 Crs) and the same was approved by the CDR Lenders (Total of 19 banks). Suzlon was looking at recasting Rs. 11,000 crore of its Rs. 14,568 crore domestic loans (as of the September quarter) – the final restructuring was for Rs. 9,600 Crs. The Banks have provided 2 years moratorium for the principal repayment and termdebt interest payments. The interest rate on the term loan has been reduced by 3% i.e. from 14% to 11%. The banks have also provided 6 months moratorium on the working capital. The interest during the 2 year moratorium period (Rs. 1,500 Crs) would be converted into equity. Additional working capital facility of Rs. 1,800 Crs provided for Operations. Equity infusion by the Promoter group of Rs. 250 Crs and conversion of unsecured loan by Promoter Group of Rs. 145 Crs into Equity. IDBI infused Rs. 550 Crs in the Company by allotment of Preference Equity Shares against the sacrifice of interest on term loan.
  15. 15. Highlights of Restructuring Scheme (CDR) • • • • • • • Waiver of existing events of defaults, penal interest and charges etc. To issue equity shares in lieu of sacrifice of the CDR Lenders for the first three years from COD, if demanded by CDR Lenders. Extension of maturity date of convertible bond (Rs. 2,013 Crs) by 45 days. Suzlon would sell the non core assets/divest key subsidiaries as under and use the proceeds to prepay debt servicing obligations. Brand value of “Suzlon” would be explored as additional security for lenders. Trimming its work force by 20% by the end of the fiscal year through March 2013. Besides all this there would not be any additional Term Loan taken by the Company.
  16. 16. Benefits of Restructuring • • • • • • • • • Reduction in the Interest Rate of 3% (from 14% to 11%). Moratorium Period of 2 Years on Principal and Interest Payments. Conversion of various irregular/outstanding/devolved financial facilities into working capital term loan. Additional need based Working Capital provided. Infusion of Equity to provide stronger financial stability. Increase in Net Worth & EBITDA. Waiver of existing events of defaults penal interest & charges. The Company has sold stakes in the Belgium Subsidiary – Hansen. The Company has sold stake in the Chinese Subsidiary for Rs. 170 Crs and retained 25% stake in the JV for having presence in Chinese Market. The cash is yet to come.
  17. 17. Recent Positive Developments in Wind Energy • • • • • • • • • • There have been tariff increased for wind power by few states – Rajasthan, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu and AP. The Generation Based Incentive (GBI) Scheme has been revived in India. CERC has given guidelines requiring renewable energy target of 15% by 2020. EU also has targets for achieving 20% energy through renewable resources and announced stimulus packages for the same. Copenhagen Summit has put renewable energy in the spotlight with committed long-term funding of $ 100 bn per year by 2020 – the same would create opportunities for global players such as Suzlon in Renewal Energy. Estimated potential of ~ 50 GW, largely untapped. Currently 2 GW annual market, likely to grow to 4 GW size. Repower has launched “3.0MW 122 meter rotor, 60 hertz” specially designed for the low wind site for the developed countries. This segment offers the big opportunity as high and medium wind sites are used up in these markets. Dedicated Ministry and Established Regulatory Framework. Aggressive targets & commitment under Government’s National Action Plan (NAPCC)

  19. 19. Currency Risk Management What went wrong ? Total Unhedged Exposure as on 31.03.2013 Rs. 14, 718 crs Impact on P& L Fx loss of Rs. 307 crs booked Recommendations 1. To have a Risk Management Policy (RMP) 2. To Hedge the exchange risk by taking forwards 3. To take Interest rate swap (IRS) to hedge the interest rate risk
  20. 20. Other Internal Restructuring Measures 1. Rationalising the head counts (Rightsizing the man power. Total man power in Suzlon & RE Power is 12,366. Employee cost for 2012-13 was Rs. 2,133 Crs (Previous year Rs. 2,009 Crs) 2. Reduction of Operating Expenses required further. [3% increase Operating Expenses in 2012-13 – Rs. 18,077 Crs (PY Rs. 17,529 Crs)]. [13% decrease in Revenue in 2012-13 – Rs. 18,914 (PY Rs. 21,359 crs)] 3. Sale of Non critical assets (Estimated revenue $ 400 million) A Sale of Pondicherry Plants B Sale of Mangalore SEZ C Sale of Stake in SE Forge D Sale of US based Blade Plant E Sale of Chinese Suzlon Energy 4. FCCB Restructuring of $ 265 Million (Active dialogue with bondholders & their advisors)
  21. 21. Restucturing of RE Power Proposal 1 Merger of Suzlon with RE Power. Hindrance : RE Power’s local banks are believed to be blocking the merger. Way forward : Replace the local banks with Indian lenders . With Indian bank as lender company can go ahead with merger. The merged entity can bring back the huge cash balance of Rs. 1,700 Crs. Proposal 2 Sale of stake in Repower Hindrance : Suzlon considers this as critical asset. Does not want to sale it. Way forward : The most workable option for the company to become debt free. Start the process by listing the Company in London Stock Exchange by Issue of shares/stake offloading by Suzlon.
