Vatsan Sudersan, Bloomberg APAC Head of Global Data:

“About one third of companies declared that they will use part of the funds raised to repay debt or loans. This is a marked increase from less than 5% of companies using their proceeds for refinancing in the same period last year and 19% in 2019.

We continue to see companies tapping the debt markets to raise capital in this region. We have seen less bond defaults as government measures have helped businesses weather a liquidity crunch. Investors should monitor current restructured loans to see how much will be converted into banks’ Non-performing Loans (NPL) or be written off, post government support. Investors should continue to watch the debt-to-equity ratio of companies to gauge their ability to pay off or take on more debt. In the medium term, investors should review the investment in companies’ capital expenditures and the impact of that in revenue growth to determine their sustainability.”
