Pakistan Credit Rating Agency and Nespak Maintain ‘PG3+’ project grading of Centre point Karachi

Lahore: The grading indicates good overall project execution capacity. The grading reflects the engagement of reputed project consultants supplemented by a rental yield based model, more suitable to current operating environment. The grading incorporates slow project progress, mainly due to stressed availability of requisite funds, which has led to delays in timely completion. However, the management’s recent funding plan is expected to alleviate liquidity constraints and spur construction activities.

The grading is dependent on the management’s effectiveness in timely finalizing the proposed loan facility to meet funding requirements. Adherence to revised project timelines is critical as any variation in construction activities, leading to further delays in completion, would have a negative grading impact.
