NUANCES IN THE TRANSACTION ADVISORY

Nuances In The Transaction Advisory

The initial plan was to raise funds in the CFS business for inorganic opportunities and also enable the group’s foray into power business. However, we advised the company to focus on the CFS business and let the power business be taken up by other group entities – as it would be the appropriate strategy for value creation. We split the fund-raise into primary component (which will fuel the growth prospects of the CFS business) and secondary component (which the shareholders of the CFS business can use to fund the power business).
