Members of the Company accorded their approval on February 04, 2018 vide postal ballot for issue and allotment of 4,22,53,521 fully convertible warrants to BG Advisory Services LLP at a price of Rs. 74.60/- per Warrant (including a premium of Rs. 64.60/ per Warrant) aggregating upto Rs. 315.21 Crore.

BG Advisory Services LLP was given a right to apply for and get allotted equity shares of the Company within a period of 18 months from the date of allotment of warrants. Therefore, the balance amount of Rs. 112.50 Crores, being 75% of warrant price for 2,01,07,260 warrants, has to be paid at any time before August 31,2019 i.e. before the allotment of equity shares pursuant to conversion of warrants.
Considering that the current share price of the Company is quoting substantially below the conversion price, the Company has received an intimation from BG Advisory Services LLP that they have decided not to exercise their right of conversion of the aforesaid warrants into equivalent number of equity shares.
As a consequence thereof, the Company took note of forfeiture of upfront warrant subscription amount of Rs.37.50 Crore paid by BG Advisory Services LLP in terms of SEBI (ICDR) Regulations.
