World growth is projected to rise from 3.1% in 2016 to 3.5% in 2017 driven largely byrecovery in manufacturing trade activity and capital flows. However major developedeconomies have been more inclined to follow populist policies to address the domesticconcerns of jobless growth and high income inequality. This has increased uncertaintyacross global markets. The general consensus emerging from multilateral forums is that theconsistency in policy making by advanced economies will be the critical aspect todetermine the growth trajectory growing forward

In India major reforms and initiatives were undertaken to drive growth to improvetransparency and to create employment. However economic activity has witnessed mixedoutcomes. Agriculture expanded robustly year-on-year after two consecutive years ofsub-one per cent growth. However the services sector witnessed sluggish growth. The majorsegment in the services sector is the IT/ITeS space which witnessed lower than expectedgrowth. The industrial sector continues to be a laggard on account of systemic issues ofexcess capacity stagnant exports and over leveraged balance sheets. Furthermore whileinterest rates have started to decline existing corporate debt overhang has dampenedprivate investment appetite

The Private Equity (PE) landscape in India reflected the mixed outcomes of the previousyear. Fund raising dipped 45% year on year in FY2017 to US$ 3.5 bn and the number of fundsraised fell by 28%. Global trends also broadly match the experience in India. EmergingMarket Private Equity funds raised US$ 44 bn in CY2016 vis-a-vis US$ 48.5 bn raised duringCY2015. The share of funds raised for the Emerging Markets as a percentage of global fundsraised (currently at 10% compared to 21% in 2011) continued to be at historic lows

On the investments front the PE transactions in India registered a fall 46% in valueterms and 33% in terms of number of transactions. On the other hand divestments witnessedan increasing trend during FY2017 with US$ 6.7 bn worth of divestments (across 258 exits)vis-a-vis US$ 6.2 bn FY2016. Successful divestments pave the way for fresh round of fundraising which in turn should provide a boost to investment activity during the comingyear

In addition FDI investments are back to robust levels attracted by the opportunitiesin the digital and telecommunication sectors. However FDI in Real Estate has reducedsignificantly over the last 3 years due to unattractive risk return opportunities. PE inReal Estate is now largely led by Institutions which prefer quasi-debt transactions.Offshore investors have focused on acquiring yield based operating properties (mainlyoffice buildings) for a possible REIT listing in the future. Another emerging trend is forfunding distressed assets across infrastructure private equity and real estate sectors.Investment Managers having in-house asset management expertise will be in a position totake advantage of this emerging investment avenue. IIML has been successful in creatingnew products to cater to the current investment landscape

During the year IIML completed acquisition of a ~US$ 220 mn infrastructure debt fund.This acquisition enables IIML to address the entire spectrum of infrastructure fundingspanning debt equity and mezzanine capital. The operations of this business have now beenintegrated and your Company will now initiate raising fresh funds under this verticalduring the course of FY2018

To capitalise on the opportunities opened up on account of InvIT regulations IIMLAsset Advisors Limited (IAAL) a wholly owned subsidiary of IIML was appointed as Managerfor a road sector infrastructure investment trust (InvIT) being raised by IL&FSTransportation Networks Limited (ITNL). The business model of InvIT management enables theManager to be rewarded on a yearly basis for enhancing distributions to the InvIT'sunitholders. The Manager is also incentivized for growing the InvIT portfolio by way ofacquisitions. Consequently revenues from InvIT's management are expected to demonstratean increasing trend over time

Another new initiative which has been operationalized during the course of the year hasbeen a US$ 550 mn facility to acquire distressed infrastructure assets. The thermal powerand the road sector have gone through significant stress both at the developer level andat the asset level. This presents a large investment opportunity to this facility.Investment assessment has already commenced and first of the transactions are expected tofructify during FY2018

To leverage the IL&FS Group's experience in large format public private partnershipprojects your Company has entered into a Joint Venture (JV) partnership with theGovernment of Andhra Pradesh to manage an urban infrastructure fund. The JV will also beengaged in fund syndication investment management and in undertaking techno-commercialappraisals for Municipal and Urban local bodies in the State of Andhra Pradesh

During the year the Company undertook 11 divestments and coupled with yield/ dividendincome generated provided reverse cash flows of Rs. 7 bn during FY2017. Key Funds such asIL&FS India Realty Fund Standard Chartered IL&FS Asia Infrastructure Growth Fundand Tara India Fund III are in active divestment phase and your Company is working withthe respective investee companies to lay the path towards liquidity

The Company also started making investments from its new Growth Private Equity Fundi.e. Tara India Fund IV

During the last two years on account of steady divestments the fee earning AssetsUnder Management (AUM) of the Company has been declining resulting in an adverse impact onthe financials of the Company. However the new initiatives undertaken during FY2017 areexpected to result in increase in IIML's AUM in FY2018 which in turn should bring inimprovement in the financial performance of the Company

On a consolidated basis the Total Income for the Financial Year 2016-2017 was Rs.1151.39 mn and the Total Expenses for the year were Rs. 1012.58 mn and the resultantProfit after Tax on a consolidated basis for the Financial Year 2016-2017 wasRs. 61.26 mn(after minority interest)

India's growth projected at 7.4% during FY2018 would be driven by improvement inconsumption demand and increase in public investments. In addition a host of structuralreforms and resolution of the NPA issue in the banking sector will be a catalyst inencouraging private investment. Forecast of normal monsoons second year in row willboost rural incomes and drive consumption demand. Further given the focus on ease ofdoing business the government has relaxed FDI norms. This has resulted in increased FDIinflows in the country.

A conducive investment environment would help in deploying more capital in productiveactivities leading to employment generation.

However the economy also faces certain risks which could hinder growth. The externalrisks include rising commodity prices (especially crude oil) due to supply rationalizationby producers or due to geopolitical tensions. Furthermore there could be short termdisruption due to the implementation of GST

In the context of these risks and opportunities the Company has put in place variousinitiatives which seek to de-risk as also grow its portfolio of services. InfrastructureInvestment Trusts (InvITs) are key to reigniting the infusion of private capital ininfrastructure development. InvITs are therefore over time expected to growsignificantly both in number and value terms. IIML's experience as an InvIT Manager cantherefore be leveraged to grow this business segment beyond the current level spanningacross various infrastructure assets classes The combination of the infrastructure debtfund a core infrastructure growth fund and a stressed infrastructure asset facility allof which are housed within IIML provides your Company an exceptional ability to addresswide ranging capital requirements of this key sector. The joint venture with Government ofAndhra Pradesh is also a unique partnership which is scalable and has the potential ofgrowing in size. It also has the potential of being replicable across other States.Likewise your Company is working on developing a partnership with an institutionalinvestor in the Middle East for addressing the infrastructure debt requirements in Africa.This is a path breaking initiative on which significant efforts have already beenexpended. These efforts are expected to bear fruit during FY2018 All these new initiativesprovide visibility for AUM growth and their success would accord strength to yourCompany's financials over a long term. The Indian economy is well poised to be amongst thefastest growing economies in the world for a third year in a row. Further newopportunities in several sectors driven by widening of financial access policy reformsand emerging technologies is expected to attract private investment (both domestic andforeign) and drive the growth further. Your Company too is embarking upon new areasthrough its various initiatives on the back of sectoral expertise and proven track recordand is confident on building upon these opportunities going forward
