Cochin Shipyard Ltd. Key Developments

Cochin Shipyard Enters Talks To Buy ABG, Shapoorji Backs Out

COCHIN Shipyard Ltd. has started preliminary discussions to buy a controlling stake in ABG Shipyard Limited (BSE:532682), two people close to the development said. Shapoorji Pallonji & Company Limited, another contender, has decided to back out of the discussions, according to one of the two people. Both persons declined to be identified. Emails sent to Dhananjay L. Datar, Executive Director at ABG Shipyard, and Madhu S. Nair, Chairman and Managing Director at Cochin Shipyard, were unanswered at the time of going to press.

Three PSUs To File Prospectus

Three public sector undertakings (PSUs) are filling prospectus with SEBI. Cochin Shipyard Ltd., Housing and Urban Development Corporation and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited are likely to file draft red herring prospectus within a week with SEBI for their initial public offering (IPOs). Through the IPOs the government aims to raise about INR 38 billion, an official said. The Centre could raise about INR 3.5 billion via 10% stake sale in Cochin Shipyard in the March quarter of financial year 2017. The Centre plans to sell 10% in Housing and Urban Development to raise approximately INR15 billion. The planned 10% government stake sale via IPO of Hindustan Aeronautics to raise nearly INR 20 billion might spill over to early financial year 2018.

COCHIN Shipyard Reportedly Mulls IPO

COCHIN Shipyard Ltd. is looking to file documents for its initial public offering (IPO) with the markets regulator by the end of this month, according to two people aware of the development. COCHIN Shipyard plans to raise about INR 6 billion from the share sale as part of its effort to expand and construct larger vessels and also undertake ship repair and fabrication. In addition, the government will sell 10% of its stake through the IPO. Cochin Shipyard has hired a consortium of investment banks including SBI Capital Markets, JM Financial Institutional Securities Ltd and Edelweiss Financial Services Ltd. Proceeds from the sale of new shares will be used to partially finance the setting up of an international ship-repair facility at the nearby Cochin Port Trust, as well as a new dry dock to facilitate the construction of larger ships and underwater repairs of rigs and semi-submersibles.
