Serba Dinamik was downgraded by both S&P and Fitch to CC and C, from CCC and CCC- respectively. The downgrade from both rating agencies come after confirmation from Serba Dinamik that it missed the $7mn coupon payment on its 6.3% Sukuk due May 2022 post which it has entered a 30-day grace period. Serba Dinamik’s liquidity is expected to remain weak even if it manages to make its outstanding coupon payment as it has a sizable MYR 99mn ($23.8mn) syndicated loan amortization payment due in December 2021. The company also has sizable maturities in May 2022, including MYR 100mn ($24.1mn) of commercial paper and $222mn in sukuk. In comparison, the company’s last unaudited report saw cash balances of MYR 497mn ($119.7mn). Besides, a prolonged delay in finalizing its statutory accounts for fiscal 2020, uncertain status of the special independent reviews and legal action against the Bursa Malaysia and EY, only complicates matters.
