Adani Group Launches First Bond Sale

Adani Group began marketing a US$ 409 million (m) bond in what would be its first dollar note after a report last year by short-seller Hindenburg Research, adding to signs of a rebound in investor confidence.

The conglomerate's solar energy unit Adani Green Energy Ltd. and associated firms are offering the 18-year bond at initial price guidance in the 7.1% area, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Issuing the security would give Adani its latest boost and further allay fears it might have to pay dearly to raise overseas capital after the US short seller's claims - which it has denied - triggered a rout in the stock and bond prices of group firms.

Adani won fresh equity backing from investors, including GQG Partners LLC last year and successfully refinanced US$ 3.5 billion (bn) worth of debt for the acquisition of cement companies, helping its securities to recover.

Proceeds from the bond sale will be used to redeem US$ 500 million of notes maturing in December. The longer maturity and structure of the new notes removes refinancing risk, Fitch Ratings wrote on 27 February.

The issuer group operates assets generating solar power in India.

Under Regulation 176(1) of the SEBI ICDR Regulations and by the approval of the members of the Company accorded through a special resolution passed through postal ballot on 29 February 2024.

Flipkart's BlackBuck Eyes IPO

BlackBuck, a logistics startup backed by Flipkart, is looking to go public in the next fiscal year aiming to raise as much as US$ 300 million (m).

Started in 2015, BlackBuck, run by Zinka Logistic Solutions Pvt Ltd, is a B2B online trucking platform that connects companies looking to ship goods with truckers and vice versa.

It also has a services business that sells GPS tracking devices, FASTags and fuel cards.

Its customers include companies such as Hindustan Unilever, Reliance Petrochemicals, Hindustan Zinc and Marico, among others.

The IPO will be a mix of a fresh issue of shares to raise money for the business as well as a secondary sale of shares by existing investors of the company.

The eventual size of the offering will depend on the quantum of the secondary share sale, which is yet to be finalised.

The company will use the IPO proceeds to scale up its services business, which it has been focusing on ramping up in recent years, as well as to grow its core freight business.

BlackBuck became a unicorn - a startup with a valuation of at least US$ 1 billion (bn) - in 2021 when it raised US$ 67 million (m) as a part of its Series E funding round at a valuation of US$ 1 bn.

The fundraiser was led by US-based Tribe Capital, IFC Emerging Asia Fund and VEF. Existing investors including Wellington Management, Sands Capital and International Finance Corporation also participated in that round.
