Adani Energy Solutions Ltd., earlier known as Adani Transmission, is planning to raise $360 million (around Rs 3,000 crore) through issuing bonds on a private placement basis.
“…we are looking for a private placement of $360 million of transmission assets which were commissioned in the last three to four years,” Rohit Soni, Chief Financial Officer of Adani Energy Solutions, said during an investors call.
He further informed that the company is still working if it can get $360 million via bonds early next year and the work is still in progress.
He also informed that paperwork (for the bond issue) are underway.
Soni also told analysts about the company’s plan to raise another $1 billion, saying, “we are looking at a billion dollar of raise, so I think we are still working on it, so the time what we have given by year end that still holds good from our perspective.”
In May this year, the board has approved raising of funds by way of issuance of equities worth up to Rs 8,500 crore by way of qualified institutional placement or other permissible mode.
AESL, part of the Adani portfolio, is a multi-dimensional organisation with presence in various facets of the energy domain, namely power transmission, distribution, smart metering, and cooling solutions.
AESL is the country’s largest private transmission company having presence across 16 states of India and a cumulative transmission network of 19,800 circuit kilometers and 53,000 MVA transformation capacity.
AESL serves more than 12 million consumers in Mumbai and the industrial hub of Mundra SEZ.
