The agency has reaffirmed the company's long-term rating at “IVR A/ Stable” and the short-term rating at “IVR A1”.

Infomerics Ratings said that the rating reaffirmed to the bank facilities of HFCL continues to derive comfort from established track record of group & experienced promoters, satisfactory order book position with reputed clientele, comfortable financial risk profile with healthy debt coverage indicators and strong demand potential for telecom products, optic fiber cables industry.

However, these rating strengths remain constrained by working capital intensive operations, customer concentration risk and exposure to intense competition.

It further added that factors like significant and sustainable improvement in operating performance and profitability margin and improvement in operating cycle with improvement in the average collection period on a sustained basis could lead to a rating upgrade.

However, factors like further deterioration in operating cycle either by further increase in inventory holding period or collection period and substantial decline in profitability impacting debt protection matrix and liquidity could negatively impact the company's rating.
