Adani's IPO size reduced, now plans to raise so much money from the market

Edible oil company Adani Wilmar Limited (AWL) has reduced the size of its initial public offering (IPO) from Rs 4,500 crore to Rs 3,600 crore. According to a statement, the IPO of Adani Wilmar, a company that sells edible oils under the Fortune brand, is expected to come this month.

AWL is a joint venture company of Ahmedabad-based Adani Group and Singapore-based Wilmar Group. Both have a 50:50 stake in it. The IPO will now involve a fresh issue of equity shares worth Rs 3,600 crore and there will be no sale offer. Earlier, according to the red herring prospectus, Rs 4,500 crore was to be raised under the IPO.

Of the proceeds from the IPO, Rs 1,900 crore will be used for capital expenditure. Rs 1,100 crore will be used to repay debt and Rs 500 crore to finance strategic acquisitions and investments. When contacted for confirmation, a company spokesperson declined to comment.

On the other hand, the port development arm of Sajjan Jindal-led JSW Group on Friday announced raising $400 million through bonds from international investors. The money raised from the issue by JSW Infrastructure will be used to pay off the existing debt of the company and its subsidiaries. This is the company's first issue in the bond markets, according to an official statement.

It added that the seven-year bond was issued with an initial estimate of 5.25 per cent interest, but the company managed to get the final value at 4.95 per cent. The company's executive director and chief financial officer Lalit Singhvi said the bonds will further diversify and strengthen the sources of financing. (with Pti input)
