10 Definitions – Structured Finance / Hybrid Instruments l Mezzanine funding: Typically unsecured, high yield, subordinated debt or preferred stock which is senior only to companys shareholders. l Asset Backed Securities: These securities are backed by a pool of financial assets ranging from mortgages to accounts receivables. l Mortgage Backed Securities: Its an ABS where the asset is a pool of Mortgages eg: RMBS, CMBS, CMO l Credit Tenant Lease: Landlord sells property to an SPV and the SPV borrows money against a pledge of the rentals. The right to rentals is further divided into classes of securities each being subordinate with higher promised returns. The landlord typically buys back the first loss piece. l Second Mortgage: A mortgage on real estate which has already been pledged as collateral for an earlier mortgage. The second mortgage carries rights which are subordinate to those of the first. l Collateralized Debt Obligation: typically securitizes a diversified pool of debt assets. These assets, corporate loans for instance, are split into different classes of bonds (known as tranches) that pay investors from the cash flows they generate. l Covered Bonds: similar to ABS but the assets remain on the issuers balance sheet l Convertible Bonds: A convertible bond is type of bond that can be converted into shares of stock in the issuing company, usually at some pre-announced ratio eg: FCCB. l Option linked instruments: Instruments with embedded options like call, put, floor, ceiling, floor, collars, convertibility etc.

18 Regulatory Trends Two sets of Norms for NBFCs investing in Real Estate proposed for those who avail public deposits and those who dont. Under the new norms, finance companies which accept public deposits can not invest more than 10% of their net worth in land or property, except for its own use. At the same time, investment in unquoted shares of a company that is not a subsidiary has to be limited to 10% of net worth. Loan and investment companies are, however, allowed to invest up to 20% of their net worth in unquoted shares. Current guidelines require asset finance companies to ensure that 60% of their loans go to lease and hire- purchase of machinery, the remaining 40% is used by finance companies to fund the real estate sector. If a finance company acquires land or property or unquoted shares in exchange of its bad loans, these assets have to be disposed off by the NBFC within three years. Norms for NBFCs
