Vodafone Idea to raise upto Rs 20k cr

New Delhi, Feb 27 (UNI) Debt ridden telecom major Vodafone Idea on Tuesday said it will raise upto Rs 20,000 crore via a combination of various instruments.
"The Board of Directors of the Company at its meeting held today, approved fund raise of up to Rs. 20,000 Crores via a combination of equity and / or equity-linked instruments. The Board has also authorised the management to appoint various intermediaries, including bankers and counsels to execute the fund raise," the company said in a disclosure to stock exchanges.
The Company will call for a meeting of its shareholders on April 2, 2024 and post-shareholder approval it expects to complete the equity fund raise in the coming quarter.
The promoters will also participate in the proposed equity raise, as committed earlier. In addition, the company remains actively engaged with its lenders for tying-up the debt funding, which will follow the equity fund raise.
Through a combination of equity and debt, the Company plans to raise around Rs. 45,000 Crores. The Company’s bank debt currently stands at less than Rs. 4,500 Crores. The equity and debt fund raising will enable the Company to make investments towards significant expansion of 4G coverage, 5G network rollout and capacity expansion, the company said in the filing.
These investments will enable the Company to improve its competitive positioning and offer an even better customer experience. The proposed fund raise follows a marked improvement in operating metrics. The Company has managed to grow its 4G subscriber base and ARPUs consecutively for the last 10 quarters.
Further, the company remains focused on providing competitive data and voice experience at all locations where it is present.
