In the first stage of the transaction, Tube Investments will acquire a 26.5% stake in Cholamandalam DBS for INR1.6bn (increasing its stake to 57.4% from the current 30.9%), while New Ambadi will acquire the FCCPs of INR1.5bn, and an 11% stake for INR660m, from DBS.
The downgrade is driven by the proposed leveraged acquisition of the 26.5% stake in Cholamandalam DBS as well as the FCCPs. The incremental borrowings will result in Tube Investments' gearing deteriorating to between 0.9 and 1 times over the near- to medium-term, compared with the previously estimated levels of 0.5 to 0.6 times, and a commensurate moderation in the company's currently healthy debt protection metrics.
The Falls Church City Public Schools (FCCPS
), will at a future date, develop an RFP(s) under the Virginia Public-Private Educational Facilities and Infrastructure Act for the construction of a new high school, the expansion of an existing middle school and the commercialization of up to 30 percent of the 34.6 acre campus.
