VIS Credit Rating Company Assigns Initial Entity Ratings to Rizwan Enterprises

Karachi, January 13, 2020: VIS Credit Rating Company Limited has assigned initial entity ratings of ‘A-/A-2’ (A Minus/A-Two) to Rizwan Enterprises (RE). Long Term Rating of ‘A-’ reflects good credit quality with adequate protection factors. Risk factors may vary with possible changes in the economy. Short Term Rating of ‘A-2’ signifies good certainty of timely payment, sound liquidity factors and company fundamentals, and good access to capital markets. Risk factors are small. Outlook on the assigned ratings is ‘Stable’.

Rizwan Enterprises (RE) is a moderate size partnership concern engaged in manufacture and sale of textile products. Majority of company’s sales are exported and comprise fabric while made-ups represent a small proportion of revenues.

The assigned ratings derive strength from RE’s long experience in its business segment, strong growth momentum in sales and profitability and adequate business risk profile. Ratings also draw comfort from the firm’s sound financial profile as reflected by strong cash flows in relation to outstanding debt, healthy debt servicing ability and robust coverage of short term borrowings. Although leverage indicators are projected to increase due to debt draw down for funding ongoing expansion, gearing levels and debt servicing capacity are projected to remain manageable over the rating horizon. Ratings take note of the relatively moderate scale of operations and partnership structure of the organization.

Ratings take into account the company’s ability to achieve revenue growth through expansion, while ensuring growth in margins and profitability, along with committed policy to maintain strong capitalization indicators. Ratings remain dependent upon maintaining growth profile with sound financial indicators particularly leverage ratios.
