IOC Plans Exit From HPL Stake Sale
Jan 16 14
Indian Oil Corporation Limited (BSE:530965) has asked the state government to refund the earnest money it paid during the bidding process of Haldia Petrochemicals Limited (HPL). Indian Oil emerged as the sole bidder in October 2013 for about 40% stake owned by the state government, including the shares that have also been claimed by co-promoter Purnendu Chatterjee's The Chatterjee Group (TCG). Indian Oil holds 8.9% in HPL and paid some INR 200 million as bid earnest money. The state government put on the block 675 million shares, making up 40% equity. TCG has staked claim to 155 million shares out of this block.The government's stake would come down to 31% without this block. A division bench of Calcutta High Court has ordered that the government would have to seek its permission before transferring this chunk. TCG has 41% in HPL and also has the right of first refusal. While the timeline for matching IOC's offer of nearly INR 22 billion has ended, recent developments on the legal front forced a rethink. The IOC board had given its nod for bidding on the condition that there should be no liability on it due to the legal wrangle between the state government and TCG. IOC emerged as the sole bidder since others in the race - Reliance Industries Limited (BSE:500325); Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Limited (BSE:500109); Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500312); GAIL (India) Limited (BSE:532155); Vedanta Resources plc (LSE:VED); Oil India Limited (BSE:533106) withdrew due to reservations over the state government's handling of the bidding process and pricing method. Executives of Reliance Industries were present on the bidding day but did not make any offer. West Bengal Industrial Development Corp has 272 million preference shares. HPL's management control would go to the company that acquires the 155 million shares on offer. TCG has the option of launching international arbitration that would be time consuming.
