Board approves increasing FII investment limit to 40% from 30% of the paid up capital

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

today said its board of directors has approved raising of $150 million (Rs 800 crore) through placement of shares to qualified institutional buyers (QIBs).

In a filing to the BSE, the company said the board also approved increasing the investment limit of foreign institutional investors to 40% from 30% of the paid up capital.

"The board has decided to seek approval of members through postal ballot (for the fund raising programme and increasing FII limit)," the filing said.

When contacted, the company declined to comment on where the fund would be utilised.

It is, however, understood that may use the fund to support its growth strategy and expansion in India and abroad.

Moreover, the company is also in the process of identifying greenfield projects in Eastern Europe to expand further in the continent.
