SpiceJet completes 1st tranche of capital infusion of Rs 744 crore – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Low cost carrier SpiceJet Friday said it has allotted shares and warrants totalling Rs 744 crore on a preferential basis in the first tranche. On Jan 25, 2024, the company’s board had approved the allotment of 5.55 crore equity shares on a preferential basis to 54 subscribers. Additionally, the board has approved the allotment of 9.33 crore warrants, offering the option to apply for and be allotted an equivalent number of equity shares, on a preferential basis to Elara India Opportunities Fund Limited and Silver Stallion Limited, SpiceJet said in a statement.
“SpiceJet is due to complete another tranche of equity/warrants raise from remaining subscribers and has requested additional time from the competent authority to complete the process under the ongoing preferential issue, as approved by the shareholders of the Company on January 10, 2024,” the statement added.
“The extension is necessitated on account of limited banking days arising from long weekends during the intervening period.”
SpiceJet CMD Ajay Singh said: “We are pleased with the completion of the first tranche of our preferential allotment, which demonstrates the confidence of investors in SpiceJet’s growth prospects and we remain committed to completing the further allotment process progressively. The fund infusion will open new avenues for SpiceJet, resulting in a more cash-efficient operation, expanded fleet and network.”
