Dalmia Bharat wins bid for Binani

Dalmia Bharat wins bid for Binani
28 February 2018

Dalmia Bharat Cement Ltd won the bid for Binani Cement on Tuesday, despite UltraTech Cement submitting an almost identical offer. The panel supervising the insolvency proceedings of Binani approved Dalmia’s resolution plan, which was backed by the Bain Piramal Resurgence Fund.  

Dalmia is expected to invest INR67bn (US$1.03bn) in Binani over a period of time. It has been alleged that UltraTech missed the opportunity due to concerns raised about penalties issued by the Competition Commission of India, according to the Mint.

Binani Cement is expected to remain a separate entity until the plans are completed, and merged with Dalmia once the resolution has taken place.
