Torrent Power Limited (the "Company") today emerged as the highest Bidder for the sale of 51% stake in the Power Distribution Company in the UT of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu. The acquisition of 51% stake in the power distribution company by Torrent is subject to further formalities as prescribed under the Tender documents. The Bidding for the Distribution Business of the UT has been undertaken as part of the Government of India's initiative to privatize distribution utilities of Union Territories to usher in efficiency, which will provide a model for emulation by other utilities across the country.

Key statistics for DISCOM of DNH & DD

Revenue - Approx ₹ 4,500 Crs p.a.
Annual Sales & number of consumers - 9,000 Million Units p.a. and ~1.5 lakh consumers
Geographical Area - 603 Sq. kms

Torrent Power currently distributes nearly 16.66 billion units to over 3.65 million customers in the cities of Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar, Surat, Dahej SEZ and Dholera SIR in Gujarat; Bhiwandi, Shil, Mumbra and Kalwa in Maharashtra and Agra in Uttar Pradesh. With the addition of Dadra & Nagar Haveli (including Silvasa) and Daman & Diu, Torrent will distribute nearly 25 billion units to over 3.8 million customers and cater a peak demand of over 5000 MW.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Samir Mehta, Chairman of Torrent Group stated that "With this acquisition, Torrent will be entrusted with the responsibility to distribute over 25 billion units of power, which is equivalent to around 2% of India's total power consumption. This acquisition will significantly strengthen Torrent's position as the leading Power Distribution company in the country with a presence in 12 cities spread across 3 States and 1 Union Territory. We are excited to have the opportunity to serve the citizens of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu and provide them the high standards of reliability and service that Torrent stands for."

The Company enjoys a strong balance sheet position with some of the best financial ratios amongst private players in the power sector with Debt : Equity ratio of 0.79 as at December 31, 2020 and Net Debt to EBITDA ratio of 2.18 for FY 2019-20. It is well poised to participate in the new opportunities coming up in the sector in renewable generation, transmission and privatisation of state-owned distribution circles.

Torrent Power is widely considered to be the leading power distribution company in India and in its licensed areas in Gujarat has the distinction of having the lowest AT&C losses of 4.53% and best reliability indices in the country.
