Link to Ind-Ra’s report: Dollarisation of Top 500 Listed Corporate Borrowers
Ind-Ra-Mumbai-16 July 2015: The vulnerability of the top 500 listed corporate borrowers (ex-banking and financial services) to rupee depreciation remained high during FY14 despite a marginal improvement in sensitivity over previous years, says India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra). 234 of the 500 largest, listed corporate borrowers have a negative sensitivity to rupee (INR) depreciation. If rupee depreciates by 1% (against the US dollar (USD)), it would shave off their absolute EBITDA by 0.19% (median). However, this is lower than the 0.28% (median) observed across 237 negatively sensitive corporates in FY13.
