The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the realty sector badly with liquidity pressure on businesses. Large Commercial builders that have seen a long run of growth are now witnessing a sudden drop in leasing. This has made them rethink their balance sheet and see how they can leverage amidst an uncertain economy and falling GDP.
 
Topics 
Discussion will touch on
  • Is a large debt portfolio a real concern for commercial builders in the country? How can these companies reduce their dependence on debt?
  • What are the options available for office space builders to reduce dependency on debt?
  • Most of the builders are talking of being debt-free by selling a portfolio of their build assets. What kind of opportunities does this open for large global funds?
  • Do we expect yield to soften in the coming quarters? What yield funds are comfortable?
  • Are we going to see Consolidation and acquisition in the office space gaining momentum due to pressure on business?
