Kishore Biyani group firm Future Enterprises Ltd has defaulted on payment of interest on non-convertible debentures (NCDs).

“The company is unable to service its obligations in respect of the interest on NCDs due on April 12, 2021,” Future Enterprises said in a regulatory filing late on Tuesday night. 

The company had issued debentures worth Rs 300 crore and the interest payable on April 12 was Rs 15.2 crore.

Future Enterprises develops, owns and leases retail infrastructure for Future Group. It handles the back-end operations of the group’s retail business.

The development comes at a time Amazon and Future Group are locked in a legal tussle over the sale of the latter’s retail and wholesale business to Reliance Retail. 

On August 29, 2020, Future Group had announced that its retail and wholesale businesses would be sold to Reliance Retail in a Rs 24,713-crore deal. There have also been reports of Future Retail’s lenders being close to approving a debt recast plan. The plan includes a two-year moratorium on repayments though there will not be any change in the interest rate. The company owes over Rs 6,000 crore to banks.

Religare Finvest 

Religare Enterprises on Wednesday said its arm Religare Finvest will default on Rs 100 crore NCD payment obligation later this month to subscriber Axis Bank because of financial distress caused by misappropriation of funds by former promoters and officials. 

Religare Finvest Limited had borrowed Rs 100 crore from Axis Bank by placing non-convertible debentures (NCDs) on a private placement basis in September 2015.
