Views of Mr. Abhishek Lodhiya (Sr. Equity Research Analyst - Infrastructure, Capital goods and Real Estate, Angel Broking):
"Indiabulls Real Estate has announced plans to hive off its commercial real estate business into a separate venture, Indiabulls Commercial Assets Ltd (ICAL). The residential business will continue to operate under Indiabulls Real Estate. The eventual plan is to create a separate entity for the commercial and leasing business and target listing the stock at a later date. Indiabulls will also be looking at getting a foreign investor / PE Fund to participate in the equity of ICAL.
In the recent past, there have been some marquee deals in this space. Government Investment Corporation (GIC) of Singapore recently took a stake in the commercial real estate business of DLF while Blackstone had bought into K Raheja Corp. Most large global investors have preferred to participate in the commercial / leasing market in India as the retail space has been going through a very sluggish phase with tepid demand. Markets are expecting value discovery for Indiabulls Real Estate through this move as was evident from the stock rallying by over 30% during the day."
