On Thursday, the company released its shareholding pattern for the June quarter, revealing that foreign portfolio investors have doubled their stake in the renewable energy PSU.

As of June 30, foreign portfolio investors held a 2.7 per cent stake in IREDA, up from 1.36 per cent in the March quarter. However, no significant shareholders with a stake exceeding 1 per cent have emerged.

On the other hand, India's domestic mutual funds have reduced their stake in the company, opting to book profits as the stock reached new highs. Mutual funds now hold a 0.24% stake, down from 0.53% at the end of March.

On June 21, the company announced that it raised 1500 crore through issuance of bonds. The bond issuance, which consisted of base issue of 500 crore and Green shoe option of 1,000 crore, received an overwhelming response from investors and was oversubscribed 2.65 times.

“We are happy with the overwhelming response to our bond issuance.

This successful capital raising will enable us to further strengthen our efforts in financing green energy projects, contributing to India’s goal of achieving 500 GW non-fossil fuel installed capacity target by 2030," said Pradip Kumar Das, Chairman & Managing Director

IREDA's shares debuted on the stock market in November last year at 32 per share. Since then, the stock has increased more than 8 times its IPO price, approaching nearly 300.
