Vodafone Idea shares closed 6.27% higher at 16.28 per share on the BSE on Thursday. 

The capital raise could be by way of the issue of equity shares or by way of any instruments including “securities convertible into equity shares, Global Depository Receipts, American Depository Receipts or bonds including foreign currency convertible bonds".

Earlier in the day, Aditya Birla Group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla had said efforts are on to rope in external investors. However, he refrained from giving a fixed timeline for the addition of external investors. "We are making good progress but can't put in a timeline," Birla told PTI.

Vodafone Idea's net loss reduced to 6,986 crore for the December 2023 quarter. The improvement in the company's performance was aided by 755.5 crore one-time exceptional gain. The telecom service provider's average revenue per subscriber also increased in Q3 FY24. The company's net loss stood at 7,990 crore in the year-ago period.

While announcing the company's Q3FY24 results, Vodafone Idea CEO Akshaya Moondra said: "We remain engaged with various parties for fundraising to make required investments for network expansion, including 5G roll-out."

Despite improvement in managing losses, the company's revenue from operations remained nearly flat at 10,673.1 crore year-on-year. The entry of Reliance Jio and the strengthening of Bharti Airtel had made the survival of the telecom company difficult, according to industry observers.
