Moving on to news from the telecom sector, as per an article in The Economic Times, Aditya Birla group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla is considering infusing some of his own capital into Vodafone Idea.
Meanwhile, the Vodafone group may sell at least a part of its stake in tower firm Indus Towers and channel the proceeds into the loss-making telco.
This will be followed by external funding.
At present, UK’s Vodafone Group Plc and the Aditya Birla group own 44.39% and 27.66%, respectively, in Vodafone Idea as its co-promoters. The Vodafone group owns 28.12% in Indus Towers.
Here’s an excerpt from the article:
- Much of the funds will have to come in from external sources. KM Birla will put in some money, but not a significant sum while Vodafone is unlikely to pump in more money (from the UK group). Monetising the assets in Indus is really the plan.
The promoter infusion is likely to be much lesser than Rs 100 bn.
Note that Vodafone Idea has been in talks with investors for raising funds for about a year. But it hasn’t been able to close its planned Rs 250 bn fundraise.
But the government’s relief package which includes a four-year moratorium on AGR and spectrum payments, reduced bank guarantees and the option to convert statutory dues to government equity has reduced the burden.
Vodafone Idea share price has opened the day up by 1.6%.
