Reliance Infrastructure has got the approval of its board to raise $100 million through unsecured foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs), the company told the stock exchanges on Saturday. The company also appointed Sandeep Khosla as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO), after Pinkesh Shah vacated the post. 

“The Board of Directors of the Company has authorised the issue of up to $100 million unsecured foreign currency convertible bonds maturing in 2031 with a coupon rate of 4.5 per cent on private placement basis. The FCCBs shall be convertible into equity shares of 10 each of the company in accordance with the terms of the FCCBs, at a price of 111 (including a premium of 101) per equity share," Reliance Infrastructure said in its filing.

The Anil Ambani-led company said it will issue 100 FCCBs of $1 million each, each aggregating $100 million. In rupee terms, each FCCB will be equivalent to 7.37 crore at a conversion rate of $1 being equal to 73.70, putting the value of the entire issue at 737 crore. These FCCBs will be unlisted, it further added.

The FCCBs can be converted into approximately 6,63,96,396 equity shares of 10 each of the company at the conversion price of 111 per equity share, including a premium of 101. This conversion price is 19.70 per cent more than the floor price prescribed by law as on the relevant date.

The FCCBs will be allotted within 30 days from the issue closing date, and will have a tenure of 10 years and 1 day from the date of allotment. They will carry a coupon of 4.50 per cent per annum.
