Indian subsidiary equity issuance

 

RHI Magnesita announces the launch of an equity raise via the placing of new shares in its 60% owned subsidiary, RHI Magnesita India Limited ("RHIM India").

RHIM India is listed on the National Stock Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange. RHIM India obtained authority from its shareholders on 13 March 2023 to raise funds from the issuance of new equity through a Qualified Institutional Placement ("QIP") and the equity raise will utilise a proportion of this authority.

The proceeds of the QIP are intended to be used for the repayment of loans used to finance the acquisitions of the refractory businesses of Dalmia Bharat Refractories Limited and Hi-Tech Chemicals Limited, and for general corporate purposes.

The size and pricing of any equity raise carried out under this authority is subject to market conditions. The Group intends to retain its majority shareholding in RHIM India.
