Anil Ambani Group flagship Reliance Infrastructure has filed fresh papers with markets regulator Sebi for its proposed InvIT Fund IPO, reducing the issue size to Rs 2,500 crore from Rs 3,000 crore earlier. The initial public offer comprises “units aggregating to Rs 2,500 crore with an option to retain over subscription of up to 25 per cent of the issue size in accordance with the InvIT Regulations”, as per the revised draft paper.
Last December, RInfra had filed draft papers with Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) to garner Rs 3,000 crore through infrastructure investment trust (InvIT).
InvIT are debt instruments which can be traded in the market and can act as investment vehicles for the sponsors. Listing of instruments enables promoters to monetise completed assets and raise funds for other long-term projects. RInfra will be the sponsor of InvIT Fund and Reliance Nippon Life AMC will be its investment manager.
