Educomp Solutions has soared 11% to Rs 152 after the company said that has arranged $155 million to pay off foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCB) of $78.5 million on due date.

“The board of directors approved a comprehensive financing package of $155 million. Of this amount, approximately $111 million is proposed to be utilised for existing redemption including redemption premium, the balance would be utilised towards capex, and strengthening the balance sheet of the company,” the company said in a filing to the stock exchanges.

Components of the financing package are expected to close simultaneously before the FCCB redemption date, it added.
