The Tata Group restructures shareholding pattern in North Indian Plantation Operations

The shareholding pattern of Amalgamated Plantations Private Limited (APPL), the new company formed by Tata Tea after restructuring its North Indian Plantation Operations (NIPO), is close to finalization. The Tata Group will hold 33-35% in APPL through Tata Investment Corporation (15%) and Tata Tea (18-20%). IL&FS and the World Bank private equity firm IFC will hold 20% stakes each in APPL, while consultancy firm Globally Managed Services will hold 12%. The balance 13-15% will be held by employees and workers of the company.

The company has received SEBI approval for the formation of APPL. Once we get shareholders’ approval, the company will come into existence with effect from April 1, 2007. The transaction process, however, remains to be completed.
