On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, MTAR Technologies announced that rating agency CRISIL has upgraded the credit rating on the company’s long-term bank facilities to A-/Stable from BBB+/Positive, and short-term bank facilities to A2+ from A2.
Ratings continue to reflect the healthy business risk profile of MTAR marked by a strong order book, long-standing relationship with customers, strong export diversity and healthy operating profitability.
The ratings also benefit from robust financial profile bolstered by the recent IPO with healthy accruals and debt protection metrics. These strengths are partially offset by large working capital requirement, customer concentration risk and susceptibility to risks inherent in a tender-based business, CRISIL said.
MTAR Technologies is one of the leading precision engineering solutions companies engaged in the manufacture of mission-critical precision components with close tolerances (5- l0 microns), and in critical assemblies, to serve projects of high national importance, through their precision machining, assembly, testing, quality control, and specialized fabrication competencies, some of which have been indigenously developed and manufactured.
