IndiGrid and SPTL signed the binding share purchase agreement for the acquisition on January 21, 2023, dependent upon and pursuant to receipt of unitholders’ consent, regulatory and other relevant approvals as well as completion of contractual obligations. IndiGrid received its unitholders’ approval on February 23, 2023. Acquired at an enterprise value of around Rs 15 billion, the addition of KTL to the portfolio will take IndiGrid’s assets under management (AUM) to about Rs 227 billion and the company’s overall asset base to 8,416 ckt km of transmission lines and around 17,550 MVA of transformation capacity. The acquisition was funded through a combination of equity, internal accruals, and debt. KTL is an interstate transmission system project and has been operating commercially since December 2021.
