HDFC to raise money through ADR’s , preferential allotment

HDFC is expected to raise $1 bn through ADR’s and preferential allotment. It plans to raise about one-fourth of the money through equity alloted on a preferential basis which will most likely be to its promoter HDFC Group as a public offer could see the promoters stake diminish. The promoter group has a current holding of 21.56% and the issue will increase its stake to 23%.

It currently needs a strategic investment of Rs 1390 crore to retain its stake and then it would go for a public offer of equity shares in domestic markets
as well as international markets like the US in the form of American Depository Shares(ADR)rasing the residual 2800 crore.
