Indiabulls Real Estate to Raise Rs 3,911 Crore

In a significant move aimed at bolstering its financial position and fostering growth opportunities, Indiabulls Real Estate announced on Friday that its board has given the green light to raise Rs 3,911 crore through the issuance of shares and warrants to investors, including the renowned Blackstone Group and the Bengaluru-based Embassy Group.

Under the approved plan, global investment firm Blackstone is set to inject Rs 1,235 crore into Indiabulls Real Estate, while the Embassy Group will infuse Rs 1,160 crore. After the conversion of warrants, the Embassy Group is slated to hold 18.7% stake, with Blackstone holding 12.4%.

In a regulatory filing, Indiabulls Real Estate (IBREL) outlined that the fundraising initiative involves a preferential issue of equity shares and convertible warrants on a private placement basis, with an aggregate value of approximately Rs 3,910.93 crore. This strategic move is geared towards recapitalizing the company's balance sheet and positioning it for both organic and inorganic growth endeavors.

The funds raised are earmarked for various purposes, including capital expenditure for ongoing projects, funding new launches, proposed acquisitions, meeting working capital requirements, and addressing general corporate needs. Notably, the board has given the nod for the issuance of 9,13,55,606 fully-paid equity shares at Rs 111.51 each, along with 25,93,69,201 warrants, convertible into equity shares at the same exercise price.

The recipients of these securities encompass entities of the Embassy Group, Baillie Gifford, affiliates of Blackstone Inc. (Blackstone Real Estate Fund), funds managed by Quant Money Managers, Poonawalla Finance, and other financial investors. However, the board's approval is contingent upon the endorsement of the shareholders and obtaining other requisite approvals.

In addition to the fundraising initiative, IBREL divulged that the board has greenlit asset acquisitions worth Rs 1,853 crore, aimed at revitalizing the business and propelling growth. Expressing enthusiasm about the developments, Sachin Shah, Executive Director of IBREL, emphasized the significance of the recapitalization effort, which includes four strategic asset acquisitions designed to augment the project pipeline.

Shah expressed gratitude for the unwavering support of the company's largest shareholders and welcomed new blue-chip investors who have validated IBREL's growth prospects. He underscored that the funds will enable the completion of existing projects and the pursuit of new opportunities, marking the culmination of a turnaround strategy implemented over the past 13 months.
