“With the recent and rapid development of the COVID-19 outbreak, many countries have implemented travel restrictions. The Group has majority of its subsidiaries, JVs and associates operating in Airport sector, Energy Sector, Highway sectors and Urban Infra sector and with respect to COVID-19 impact on the business of these entities, the management believes while the COVID – 19 may impact the businesses in the short term, it does not anticipate medium to long term risk to the business prospects,” GMR said.

The Group has incurred losses, primarily on account of losses in the energy and highway sector with a consequent erosion of its net worth, delay in debt and interest servicing and lower credit ratings for some of its borrowings, the infra major said.

The management is taking various initiatives, including monetization of assets, sale of stake in certain assets, raising finances from financial institutions and strategic investors, refinancing of existing debt and other strategic initiatives to address the repayment of borrowings and debt, it added.
