Brickwork has downgraded the rating for debentures of Peninsula Land, real estate unit of the Ashok Piramal Group, from “A” to “BBB-“. It also revised the outlook from “stable” to “negative”. This rating downgrade and change in outlook factor in high refinancing risk and sluggish demand in the realty sector.

Further, the sales velocity and collections are expected to remain low. This may put pressure on the cash flows, necessitating refinancing or mobilisation of additional funds to repay the debt
