Mortgage lender HDFC Ltd will raise up to Rs 85 billion by issuing bonds on a private placement basis to shore up long-term capital needs.
The secured redeemable non-convertible debentures (NCDs) with an issue size of Rs 5 billion and option to retain oversubscription up to Rs 85 billion are to be allotted Thursday on a private placement basis, HDFC said in a regulatory filing.
"The object of the issue is to augment the long-term resources of the Corporation. The proceeds of the present issue would be utilised for financing/refinancing the housing finance business requirements of the Corporation," HDFC said in a regulatory filing.
HDFC said only those persons who are specifically addressed through a communication are eligible to apply for the debentures.
"No other persons can apply," it added.
The securities, with a tenor of 10 years, bear coupon rate of 9 per cent per annum.
