Apart from IFCI Factors, the other three entities are Shiva Cement's promoters - Unicon Merchants, Akash Gupta and Preeti Gupta.
Following an examination, the regulator had observed that the four entities had violated SAST (Substantial Acquisition of Shares and Takeovers) Regulation for the transactions dated April 21, 2014, in the shares of Shiva Cement.
The promoters had pledged Shiva Cement's shares, which were released on April 21, 2014. IFCI Factors was the counter-party to the transactions and had acquired the shares.
The regulator added that upon release of the pledged shares, IFCI Factors was also required to make necessary disclosures.
However, the four entities by not making the necessary disclosures upon release of the pledge of shares of Shiva Cements have violated the provisions of SAST Regulation, Sebi noted.
