  • IND Renewable Energy Trades 5% in Green on Rights Issue Plans: IND Renewable Energy witnessed a surge of 5% in its stock price as investors showed enthusiasm for the company’s upcoming rights issue plan. The Board of Directors is scheduled to meet on June 12, Wednesday to discuss the fundraising through a rights issue.

A rights issue, also referred to as a rights offering, is a strategy employed by companies to secure additional capital by extending an exclusive opportunity to existing shareholders to acquire additional shares based on their current holdings. This method ensures that shareholders maintain their proportional ownership in the company while providing them with the chance to invest further.

  • Wipro’s Record Date for Rs 12,000 Crore Buyback: IT major Wipro has fixed June 16 as the record date for its Rs 12,000 Crore shares buyback program. The buyback, which will be conducted on a proportionate basis through a tender offer, offers a buyback price of Rs 445 per share. Retail investors holding shares worth below Rs 2 lakh will have reserved shares in the buyback.

This means that shareholders will have the opportunity to tender, or offer, a portion of their shares back to the company at a specified price. The buyback process allows the company to acquire shares directly from its shareholders, reducing the total number of shares outstanding in the market. 

  • IKIO Lighting’s Listing Expected with Premium: On June 16, IKIO Lighting is expected to make its debut on the exchanges. Considering the positive response in the unlisted market, the company’s stock is anticipated to list at a healthy premium.

  • NaBFID to Offer Takeout Loans for Infrastructure Projects: The National Bank for Financing Infrastructure and Development (NaBFID) plans to introduce takeout financing products to aid in project financing and facilitate timely exits for commercial lenders. Takeout financing enables loan repayment extensions as new lenders take over or refinance project loans. NaBFID aims to sanction loans worth ₹4 trillion by March 2026.
  • SBI to Raise ₹50,000 Crore in FY24: State Bank of India (SBI), the country’s largest lender, announced its decision to raise up to ₹50,000 crore through debt instruments in the current fiscal year.
