Grasim to acquire the Chlor-Alkali Business of K.P.R. Industries India Limited for Rs. 253 crore

Posted On: 2019-02-21 08:42:17

Grasim Industries Limited ("Grasim") has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Chlor-Alkali Business ("CAB") of K.P.R. Industries (India) Limited ("KPR") by way of a slump sale, for a cash consideration of Rs.253 crore. The transaction will be funded through internal accruals. KPR would in turn utilize Rs.253 crore towards a full and final settlement of the lenders' dues under a One-Time Settlement. The transaction is subject to regulatory approvals.

The Business consists of an under-construction 200 TPD Chlor-Alkali project at Balabhadrapuram, Andhra Pradesh. Grasim would take over the assets and identified liabilities associated with the Chlor-Alkali Business.

Says Dr. Santrupt B Misra, CEO, Birla Carbon Business; Director, Chemicals & Director, Group H.R., "This acquisition is a strategic fit, and further strengthens our Group's leadership in the chlor-alkali sector. Caustic Soda is a critical input in the aluminium sector. Given the expansion plans for the aluminium businesses, it will serve as an excellent sourcing point for leading aluminium players. We look forward to an early completion of this project."

The acquisition is in line with Grasim's strategy to strengthen operations on the East Coast of India. Further, the purchase of a partially-completed project vis--vis a greenfield project will translate into a shorter time-to-market. The acquired Business also has the potential for future expansions. Once operationalised, the project, along with other ongoing expansion projects, will enhance Grasim's caustic soda capacity to 1.22 MMTPA.

Caustic soda is one of the essential inputs for the manufacture of alumina. It is also used widely in various other industries viz., Viscose Staple Fibre, water treatment, pharma, chemicals etc. The Business is strategically located in proximity of various aluminium manufacturing facilities, which offer significant growth opportunities.

The chlor-alkali division of Grasim already operates seven state of the art chlor-alkali plants pan India. The completion of this chlor-alkali project in Andhra Pradesh enables Grasim to serve the fastest growing market of caustic soda in India and also will catalyse growth of the chlorine downstream sector in Andhra Pradesh.

Shares of GRASIM INDUSTRIES LTD. was last trading in BSE at Rs.730.75 as compared to the previous close of Rs. 716.2. The total number of shares traded during the day was 55538 in over 1122 trades.

The stock hit an intraday high of Rs. 734 and intraday low of 721. The net turnover during the day was Rs. 40463421.
