Suzlon Energy has surged almost 11% to Rs 17.15 on back of over three-fold jump in trading volumes on reports that the wind turbine makers has been admitted to corporate debt restructuring (CDR) process.
“Suzlon Energy, which last month defaulted on $200 million convertible bond redemption, has been admitted to India's corporate debt restructuring process,” the Reuters report suggests.
Loss-making Suzlon Group last month said it has started discussions with lenders for restructuring debt, including a two-year moratorium on repayment of term loans.
“The company has initiated discussions with its senior secured lenders and plans to restructure its debt with a maturity period of ten years under the CDR mechanism, including a two-year moratorium on principal and interest payments on term-debt,” Suzlon Energy said in a statement.
The stock opened at Rs 15.50 on the BSE and has seen over three-fold surge in trading volumes. As many as a combined 28.04 million shares have already changed hands on the counter so far against an average sub 9 million shares that were traded daily in past two weeks on the BSE and NSE.
