The company warned that its financial situation was so grim that it may not survive. The company said it was undergoing substantial financial stress and its ability to raise funds was substantially impaired and the business has been brought to a standstill with there being minimal/virtually no disbursements. These developments may raise a significant doubt on the ability of the company to continue as a going concern, DHFL said in notes accompanying results for the fourth quarter ending 31 March, signed by chairman and managing director Kapil Wadhawan.
In a separate announcement, the company disclosed that it has defaulted on interest payment on its non-convertible debentures (NCDs) which were due on 6 July 2019 and 8 July 2019. The total default amount is Rs 48 crore.
