IndiGrid, India’s first listed power sector Infrastructure Investment Trust (InvIT), has raised INR 1,140 crore ($138.84 million) by issuing listed, non-convertible debentures (NCDs) to International Finance Corp. (IFC).
“With a total tenure of 18 years, the NCDs were priced at a competitive rate that is fixed for a long tenure,” stated IndiGrid.
IndiGrid plans to utilize this debt for funding its upcoming refinancing opportunities in FY 2024.
Harsh Shah, chief executive officer of IndiGrid, said this long-term financing from IFC is in alignment with IndiGrid’s strategy aimed at ensuring a robust balance sheet.
Isabel Chatterton, IFC’s regional industry director for infrastructure in Asia and the Pacific, said IFC’s investment in IndiGrid underlines their joint commitment to modernize and build a robust and reliable transmission system in India. “Our support will help expand and diversify capital sources for critical power infrastructure, demonstrating the viability of innovative market financing to meet sustainable development goals. We aim to improve access to reliable power for millions of people across the country, ensuring sustained energy access for years to come,” he added.
