Cyrus Mistry's tragic death in a car accident on Sunday has put the spotlight again on SP Group's substantial 18.4% holding in Tata Sons, the holding company of the Tata group as the SP Group had talked about separation in the past after a troubled relationship with Ratan Tata.

There were media reports in March this year that SP Group was taking a Rs 150 bn loan against its holding in Tata Sons.

SP Group had talked about separation two years back in September 2020 before the Supreme Court.

The largest shareholder in the Tata Group, SP Group, had said before the Supreme Court Tuesday that a separation from the Tatas is necessary.

The SP Group stated before the Supreme Court that a separation from the Tata Group is necessary due to the potential impact this continuing litigation could have on livelihoods and the economy.

They stated that it was crucial that an early resolution is reached to arrive at a fair and equitable solution reflecting the value of the underlying tangible and intangible assets.

The current situation has forced the Mistry family to sit back and reflect on the past, present and possible future for all stakeholders, SP Group had said.

Moving on to news from the telecom sector, debt laden Vodafone-Idea (VI) to pre pay its debt.

Loss-making VI has prepaid a short-term loan of about Rs 27 bn to SBI in a bid to shore up lenders' confidence.

This comes as the company urgently seeks fresh bank funds to tie up equipment supply deals for 5G networks and also clear some of its near Rs 150 bn trade payables, comprising dues to tower companies, network gear vendors and other suppliers.

With the government showing no signs of urgency in converting Vi's accrued interest on deferred AGR-related dues into equity, external equity funding appears to be further delayed. This leaves the telco with no option but to arrange more debt to firm up its 5G plans.

Meanwhile, VI's trade payables jumped almost 13.6% sequentially to Rs 149.6 bn in the June quarter. These payables - part of Vi's current liabilities - include dues to tower firms and network vendors/other suppliers, which were estimated at around Rs 95 bn and Rs 55 bn, respectively, at the end of June quarter.
