Infrastructure India 0.775p £5.3m (LON:IIP)
The infrastructure fund investing directly into assets in India, provided an update on trading and the impact of COVID-19 on IIP's portfolio companies. On 8 June 2020, following more than two months of national lockdown, the Government of India commenced a phased reopening of economic activities and adopted a cluster containment strategy in order to prevent spread of the disease.
IIP's largest asset, Distribution Logistics Infrastructure Limited has terminals located in each of the National Capital Region. Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu, which remain the most affected regions in India, and the restrictions in place have hindered construction progress and regulatory approvals.
IIP's hydro assets are performing as expected with some disruption to administrative functions and localised delays, but overall the impact of COVID-19 has been limited with all sites accessible and fully staffed. The impact at Indian Energy Limited has been greater, with one wind farm project, Theni, which sells power under a Group Captive Scheme to manufacturing and retail customers, experiencing lower consumption of power particularly during lockdown. In response, IEL has begun diversifying its customer base.
Despite the extraordinary upheaval encountered by all businesses in India during the pandemic, infrastructure assets are long term and the IIP Board believes that the prospects of the logistics markets in India remain strong.
