Reliance Infra Plans $350 Mn FCCB to Repay Debt and Expand

Reliance Infrastructure, part of Anil Ambani's business conglomerate, is planning to raise $350 million through Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds (FCCBs) to repay rupee-denominated debt and fund expansion initiatives. This move is aimed at restructuring its financial obligations and supporting growth across its infrastructure projects.

The funds raised from the FCCB issue will primarily be utilised to retire existing rupee debt, thereby reducing interest costs and optimising its debt profile. Additionally, Reliance Infra intends to allocate a portion of the proceeds towards expanding its presence in various infrastructure sectors, including power distribution and road projects.

The decision to opt for FCCBs reflects Reliance Infra's strategy to diversify its sources of funding and leverage international capital markets. FCCBs are attractive instruments for companies looking to raise funds as they offer the dual benefit of debt and equity, providing flexibility in financial management.

Reliance Infrastructure, with interests in power, infrastructure, and defence, aims to strengthen its balance sheet and enhance operational efficiencies through strategic financial restructuring. The company remains focused on executing its growth plans amidst evolving market dynamics and regulatory environments.

Anil Ambani's group has been actively pursuing initiatives to streamline operations and improve financial health across its diversified portfolio. The FCCB issuance underscores Reliance Infra's commitment to prudent financial management and sustainable growth, positioning it to capitalise on emerging opportunities in India's infrastructure sector.
