Indiabulls Extend The Closing Date Of The Issue By A Day

Laxmi Mittal-backed Indiabulls Real Estate managed to raise $259 million on the Singapore Stock Exchange, a day after the scheduled closing of its REIT’s issue, Indiabulls Properties Investment Trust.

India’s fourth largest real estate developer sold 353 million shares at $1 per unit, out of which Lakshmi Mittal had committed 91 million shares.

The sale was to realize $278 million. The issue, which was to close on June 5, 2008, was delayed by a day on account of it being under subscribed.

If market experts are to be believed, weak sentiment across the global real estate market led to under subscription of the retail portion. A minimum of 1,000 investors need to subscribe to successfully close an issue.

The issue was subscribed by only 700 investors on June 5. Following this, the company decided to extend the closing date of the issue. However, when contacted, Gagan Banga, the group spokesperson for Indiabulls, said a delay in getting regulatory approval forced Indiabulls to extend subscription process for retail investors by a day.

    The turmoil in the global financial markets has cast its shadow on India’s largest real estate deal. India’s real estate developers, especially the mid-sized ones, have been facing a liquidity crunch since last year. Developers can no longer tap the external commercial borrowing route, while domestic borrowing costs have gone up on account of tight-fisted monetary policy, which is likely to harden further in days to come. In addition, the stock market has taken a beating with real estate stocks falling off their recent highs. Other sources of funding for instance, the London Stock Exchange’s Alternate Investment Market or listing real estate investment trusts abroad are also not feasible in current market conditions.
