Anil Ambani Has Reasons To Smile: RPower Turning Around Slowly

Today, the main problem with RPower is the name of Anil Ambani, in whom the markets unfortunately have lost confidence. According to one source, if one looks beyond the name, all signs of a turnaround can be seen. The company is reducing debt by up to Rs 3 lakh crore this year, which means reduction in interest burden by Rs 300 crore per annum. People have missed the fact that now RPower has an operating portfolio of 5,960 MW (about 6 GW). It has, since the last two precious quarters, been able to come into consecutive profits. The total liabilities of RPower come to about Rs 22 lakh crore. The total assets of RPower, going by replacement cost theory of power sector (1 MW of Rs 10 crore) works out to Rs 60,000 crore worth of assets. Meanwhile, RPower, which was having issues in servicing debt in the past, has now been able to do so in the last three quarters, albeit slowly. It was wilfully defaulting on debt, so that debt restructuring can be done. Now, the company is doing everything to cut debt.
