RCom gets stock exchange, Sebi approval for merger with Aircel

Thursday, March 16, 2017

Reliance Communications has got the approval of capital markets regulator Sebi and stock exchanges, BSE and NSE, for the proposed demerger of its wireless operations into Aircel Ltd.

The company has now filed an application with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Mumbai Bench, for approval of the scheme, RCom said in a statement. RCom and the present shareholders of Aircel Ltd (Maxis Communications Berhad) will hold 50 per cent each in the merged entity, with equal representation on the board and committees.

The company has received approval of "the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi), BSE Ltd (BSE) and National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSE) for the proposed Scheme of Arrangement for demerger of the wireless division of the company into Aircel Ltd and Dishnet Wireless Ltd", RCom said.

The proposed transaction is subject to necessary approvals, it added. RCom, on September 14 last year, announced it will merge its wireless telecom business with smaller rival Aircel to create the country's 4th-biggest mobile phone operator, with asset base of more than Rs 65,000 crore and net worth of Rs 35,000 crore.

Both the companies will transfer Rs 14,000 crore of debt each to the joint venture, taking the total debt of the new company to Rs 28,000 crore. The transaction will reduce RCom's debt by Rs 20,000 crore, while Aircel's debt would go down by Rs 4,000 crore on closing in 2017.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You feel a bit bored with your circumstances. You will be jolted out of your complacence with news that you may have to do something which is not convenient right now. You should not take changes around you personally. Do not jump to any conclusions but wait for an explanation. Money matters are cause for differences with your mate which disturb harmony at home. Interfering relatives will add to your woes.
