Financial Reform in India

...Indian Financial Sector Reforms: A Corporate Perspective Jayanth R. Varma Reproduced with the permission of Vikalpa, the journal of the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, in which the paper was first published (January-March 1998, 23(1), 27-38). Ó Vikalpa ( All rights reserved Until the early nineties, corporate financial management in India was a relatively drab and placid activity. There were not many important financial decisions to be made for the simple reason that firms were given very little freedom in the choice of key financial policies. The government regulated the price at which firms could issue equity, the rate of interest which they could offer on their bonds, and the debt equity ratio that was permissible in different industries. Moreover, most of the debt and a significant part of the equity was provided by public sector institutions. Working capital management was even more constrained with detailed regulations on how much inventory the firms could carry or how much credit they could give to their customers. Working capital was financed almost entirely by banks at interest rates laid down by the central bank. The idea that the interest rate should be related to the creditworthiness of the borrower was still heretical. Even the quantum of working capital finance was related more to the credit need of the borrower than to creditworthiness on the principle that bank credit should be used only for......

Organized Retail Industry – India

...Organised Retail Industry – India Indian organised retail market is only about 8% of the total domestic retail market. It is expected that this sector will grow to about 20% in the next 8 to 10 years. This is a huge opportunity area for any company with a good financial capacity and market knowledge. [pic] Major portion of the existing market share is with Indian companies with a few Joint Ventures of global giants. FDI policies of India have not been very conducive to the entry of global retailers like TESCO & Wal-Mart. While the current government has increased FDI investment to 51%, it has also put in conditions of minimum $100 million investment and split of investment in front & backend operations. Main political opposition parties have made their intentions clear on reversing trends in FDI, if they gain power in upcoming elections. On a very broad level, PESTEL & five forces analysis will indicate that the global giants will need strong local partner to enter the Indian organised retail market to offset policy restrictions and political uncertainties. Strength of these global giants have evolved best practises in major work processes and logistics design for managing a wide spread retail business. In conclusion: Best strategy is to leverage the strengths of global giants and build a business that has inherent competitive advantage. Such collaborative ventures will be successful in future even if there is change in policies of FDI in organized retail......

Stating leases as operating rather than financial improves its leverage ratios as well as overstate profits and ROA in the initial years. Financial Statement Analysis: Cash Flow Statement: 1. The cash flow statement shows an increase of 95% in Net change in cash. Though the cash flow from operating activities decreased by 1% as compared to the last year, this was compensated by an even greater reduction in the cash out-flow from investing activities, which decreased by 9%. The biggest adjustment towards finding cash flow from operations was due to Increase in Trade Payables, which was 50% of CFO and increased by a significant 53%. This could be a cause for concern, as Bata seems to be increasing the amount it buys on credit, hence increasing its cash in the short term. In the major out-flows in CFO, increase in Inventories was as much as 66% of Cash from operating activities, an extremely high 70% increase from last year. This could be due to decrease in efficiency as the company seems to have bought much more inventory than it could......
