Government Goes After Willful Defaulters

Market This Week

The government has cracked the whip on the promoters by putting restrictions on not only willful defaulters and those involved in fraudulent transactions but also on entities that have defaulted on loan payments for more than a year and those connected to them, under Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. This amendment left markets in a dilemma as it may have given promoters a back-door entry to control firm at a steep discount while banks would seek to extract most amount out of defaulted loans.

Movers & Shakers

Action Construction Equipment (ACE) has posted strong Q2 numbers with two-fold growth in EBITDA. As per the company, there is lot more demand for equipment for the business in the industry. On tractor business, Q1 was negative because of GST impact but in coming quarters, the company is hopeful of 20-30% growth. Also, the company announced amalgamation of Frested Ltd and ACE Ltd on 22nd November 2017. The market reacted positively to this news as the stock of ACE rallied over ~17% in this week.
