Reliance Communications Mulls Sale Of Stakes in Reliance Infratel

Reliance Communications Ltd. (NSEI:RCOM) is seeking to sell stakes in Reliance Infratel Limited. Reliance Communications Ltd. has shortlisted American Tower Corporation (NYSE:AMT) apart from private equity firms The Carlyle Group LP (NASDAQ: CG), The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE:BX), Farallon Capital Management, L.L.C. and Tilman Financial for buying up to 100% of its stake in unit Reliance Infratel Limited. "The formal process for sale of a controlling 51% stake in Reliance Infratel was launched a few weeks back, and has got a very positive response, the company has shortlisted a smaller number of very credible interested parties to progress to the next round of the process," Reliance Communications told the stock exchanges in a statement after an earnings call on August 17, 2015. While RCom didn't name any of the shortlisted bidders, it said that it had received indicative non-binding bids from a number of interested buyers. In fact, some of the shortlisted bidders want to buy out RCom's stake in Reliance Infratel completely. "The due diligence process has now commenced. Further announcements will be made, as and when appropriate," Reliance Communications said, adding that the sale proceeds from the proposed deal would substantially reduce RCOM's overall gross debt during the current financial year through March 31, 2016. Standard Chartered and SBI Capital are running the sale process. ATC, Blackstone and Farallon Capital didn't respond to requests for comment while Tillman executives couldn't be reached. Carlyle said it didn't have any comment.
