Indian Rayon: Now, Aditya Birla Nuvo!

Sep 12, 2005

The Aditya Birla Group, a Rs 330-bn conglomerate, involved in businesses ranging from metals, fertilisers, textiles, IT-ITES, finance and life insurance, is merging two of its group companies, Birla Global Finance (BGF) and Indo Gulf Fertilisers (IGF) with Indian Rayon. The consolidated entity will be rechristened Aditya Birla Nuvo and will have Rs 60 bn in consolidated revenues. The swap ratio for the deal is at 1:3 under two separate restructuring schemes. This implies that shareholders in BGF and IGF will receive one share of Indian Rayon for every three shares they hold in either of the two companies.

What is the rationale?
As per the management, this merger will enable the consolidated entity to have greater borrowing power. This assumes significance in light of the fact that the entity will be a highly diversified company, involved in businesses ranging from viscose staple fibre (VSF), textiles, carbon black, insulators, IT-ITES, telecom and life insurance. The cash flows from 'value businesses' like VSF and textiles will be used to fund the 'high-growth businesses' like IT-ITES and life insurance. The group also plans to explore opportunities in financial services, asset management and banking in future, provided regulations permit. Clearly, the Aditya Birla Group has ambitious expansion plans and this step signifies this.

We shall soon update our readers with a detailed review of this restructuring exercise of the Aditya Birla Group.
