Patel Engineering has sold a 4-acre plot in Mumbai’s central business district, Bandra Kurla Complex, for about Rs 300 crore as part of plans to sell assets to reduce debt.
Patel Realty, a subsidiary of Patel Engineering, last week signed a deal to sell the land to unlisted realty company Kanakia Spaces Ltd, industry sources said.
Patel Engineering’s Managing Director Rupen Patel did not reply to calls made for seeking comments.
Sources said the company is also in advanced talks with at least two investors for getting a co-developer for its 16-acre residential complex which it is building in Yogeshwari in Mumbai.
The deal to get a joint developer for the Yogeshwari residential complex is likely to get the company Rs 700 crore, they said.
In September, Patel Engineering had sought shareholder’s approval to dispose off its non-core assets to cut debt.
In a filing to stock exchanges in late September, it had said that it is planning to sell assets to reduce debt to the extent of Rs 1,000 crore.
As of March 31, the company’s total consolidated debt was Rs 4,478 crore.
