The guarantee is with respect to non-convertible debentures issued by SVL Ltd.

Late Wednesday, the firm issued a statement saying the NCDs fall due for maturity after a year from now in June'2019. SVL Limited, its Promoters / Promoter Group, and its associates, have enough resources to honour the payment of this loan whenever due and payable has reassured the same.

Shriram Transport Finance said it had given corporate guarantee in connection with issue of non-convertible redeemable debentures (NCD) issued by SVL Limited in June' 2015. Apart from this corporate guarantee, STFC has not extended any fresh guarantee for SVL Limited. The corporate guarantee is secured by pledge of shares of SVL Limited, Shri Ram Transport Finance said.
