The global economic recovery remained muted in CY2015 and growth in emerging marketsand developing economies declined for the fifth consecutive year. Even as the US economyshowed resilience plunging oil and commodity prices along with volatile equity andcurrency markets led to the International Monetary Fund estimating a lower global growthrate at 3.4% in CY2016. Even so factors like tightening of economy in the US and aslowdown in China are expected to weigh on this growth rate along with a potential exit ofBritain from the European Union

The Indian economy showed signs of improvement with baseline GDP growth rate target of7.6% for FY2016 being achieved inflation under control and RBI announcing four rate cutssince January 2015 aggregating 150 basis points. With the expectation of an improvedbusiness environment boosted by a projection of better monsoon leading to higherconsumption demand the economy is projected to grow at 7.6% in FY2017. The Government haslaid considerable thrust on infrastructure and rural sector in the Union Budget for2016-17 and is expected to increase investment. However risk aversion in the bankingsector and weaker global growth and trade outlook could temper the growth outlook

The global Private Equity industry continued to reflect the uncertain economicenvironment with funds raised for Emerging Markets in 2015 declining 17% from 2014 to US$44 bn as also the deployment which reduced from US$ 38 bn to US$ 29 bn. Overall due tocurrency volatility and capital outflows the emerging markets share of global fundraising declined from 14% in 2014 to 12% in 2015

With projections of a steady 7%+ growth rates in the country India continued toattract investor interest. The fund raising environment in India picked up with anaggregate fund raising for FY2016 at US$ 5.8 bn up 24% compared to FY2015. However bulkof the funds have gone towards the Venture Capital sectors resulting in 45% of totalinvestments coming into IT&ITES sector. Even so concerns regarding a potentialslowdown continued to build as the number of VC deals fell by 14% on a quarterly basis inQ4 CY2015. Investments in the Real

Estate sector declined 20% year on year while limited primary deals were concluded inthe Infrastructure sector. However with developers looking to reduce their debt burdenand recycle capital the latter sector is showing considerable promise to Private Equityplayers and acceleration is expected in this sector going forward

With a clear understanding of the market drivers and the types of fund products whichwould meet the investor's requirements the Company has structured the IL&FS IndiaInfrastructure Fund targeting investors seeking a regular yield together with emergingmarket returns. Fund raising efforts are focused on investors in the geographies of JapanKorea and Australia. Despite keen interest investor conversion is slow due to currencyvolatility and also due to their prior experience in India

The Tara India Fund IV which had a first close of US$ 40 mn in January 2015 receivedadditional approvals from financial and multilateral institutions and also saw an increasein commitment from the existing investors. A final close is expected shortly. The Fund'sfocus areas of healthcare and life sciences education and skill development cleanenergy financial inclusion food and agriculture water urban infrastructure andconnectivity services are in sync with where the focus of the current government policylies as also the areas with maximum growth potential in the near and long term

In Real Estate IL&FS India Realty Fund II with a corpus of US$ 895 mn approachedthe end of its life in December 2015. The investors reposed their faith in the Fund'sendeavours to generate exits and extended the fund life recognising that optimal exitsoften involve protracted negotiations. In this sector as well recognising the shift inthe investors demand towards more structured products the Company has started marketing alisted product to them. While similar concerns around currency and returns are beingfaced your Company with its track record and expertise in the sector is addressing thesame through a measured process of investor education. However this has resulted inincreased timelines for fund raise

The Company also has a significant opportunity to showcase its expertise through itsdivestment track record and in implementation of Environment Social and GovernanceStandards (ESG) given that all the current Funds being managed by the Company haveimplemented ESG and are presently in the monitoring and harvesting stage

During the year the Company undertook 19 divestments and coupled with yield/dividendincome generated provided reverse cash flows of Rs. 14.7 bn during FY2016 compared tothe Rs.11.7 bn cash flows generated during FY2015. Key Funds such as IL&FS IndiaRealty Fund Standard Chartered IL&FS Asia Infrastructure Growth Fund and Tara IndiaFund III are in active divestment phase and your Company is working with the respectiveinvestee companies to lay the path towards liquidity over the next 2-3 years

With a steady divestment pattern the fee earning Assets Under Management (AUM) of theCompany has been declining. Lower profitability from this count has been offset by a focuson generating other fee based income as also by way of cost rationalisation

The Government has alsoannounced measures with Rural sector and Infrastructure in focus to fuel growth.Continuing reform momentum forecast of a better than normal monsoon the likely boost toconsumption demand from the implementation of the 7th Pay Commission recommendations andcontinuing monetary policy accommodation are expected to help maintain the growthtrajectory. However any weakening in global economic activity and volatility in theforeign exchange market along with uncertainty in oil prices could generate spill overs inthe Indian market as well

Infrastructure in the country is in a challenging phase and with the regulator allowingIndian firms to launch Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs) and Infrastructure InvestmentTrusts (InvITs) and the Government recently removing Dividend Distribution Tax on InvITs /REITs more foreign funds are now expected to flow in India's financial markets.
