CRNL undertakes a rating exercise based on information provided by the company, in-house databases and data from other sources that CRNL considers reliable. The primary focus of the rating exercise is to assess future cash generation capability of the company and its adequacy to meet debt obligations, even in adverse conditions. The analysis attempts to determine the long-term fundamentals and the probabilities of change in these fundamentals. The analytical framework of CRNL’s rating methodology is divided into two interdependent segments. The first deals with the operational characteristics and the second with the financial characteristics. Besides quantitative factors, qualitative aspects like assessment of management capabilities play a very important role in arriving at the rating for an instrument. The relative importance of qualitative and quantitative components of the analysis varies with the type of issuer. Rating determination is a matter of experienced and holistic judgment, based on the relevant quantitative and qualitative factors affecting the credit quality of the issuer.
