Adani Enterprises To Raise Funds Through Global Bonds
by Charmi Gutka
Adani Enterprises is planning to raise funds by issuing $1.5 Bn global bond to fund its Australian coal, rail and port projects.
In August 2010, Adani Group had signalled its grand plan for Australia with the $3 bn purchase of Linc Energy’s coal tenements in the Galilee Basin, Australia’s single largest tenement, with a resource of 10.4 bn tonnes of coal.
The company plans to invest a further $7 bn in Australia over the next few years in the coal mine, the Abbot Point port project, and a 450 km track system that will connect the two.
Sunnyvale, California-based Druva Inc., a cloud-first data protection solution provider, announced receiving $51 million in funding. This round of funding was led by existing investor Sequoia India, along with participation of new investors such as Blue Cloud Ventures, Hercules Capital, and Singapore-based EDBI. Existing investors like Japan’s NTT Finance (financial arm of Japanese telecommunications company Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation), Nexus Venture Partners and Tenaya Capital also contributed to this round.
