Four days after Godrej Properties aborted plans to invest in DB Realty, RARE Investments, promoted by billionaire investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala and his wife Rekha Jhunjhunwala will step in to invest in the company through issue of warrants convertible into equity shares.

Mumbai-based property developer DB Realty will issue 5 crore convertible warrants to six non-promoter investors. Of this, 2 crore warrants will be allotted to Rekha Jhunjhunwala and RARE Investments in equal share.

Abhay Chandak and Aditya Chandak, promoters of Mumbai-based real estate entity, Chandak Group will subscribe to 2 crore warrants. The balance 1 crore warrants will be split equally between Barclays Wealth Trustees and Khandwala Finstock.

Each warrant is convertible into one equity share and the conversion can be exercised at any time within a period of 18 months from the date of allotment, in one or more tranches. The company did not specify the warrant price.

Last week Godrej Properties decided not to go ahead with its planned investment in DB Realty after stakeholders and minority investors raised concerns on the deal.
