Some of the scrips that will likely see some action

M&M Financial mega rights issue opens

Shares of both Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services and its promoter Mahindra & Mahindra will remain in focus as the former's Rs 3,088.82-crore issue opens for subscription on Tuesday. The rights issue will close on August 11.

The company will issue 61.776 crore equity shares of the face value of Rs 2 each for cash at a price of Rs 50 a share on a rights basis to eligible shareholders in the ratio of one equity share for every share held on the record date, July 23.

The funds raised through the issue will be used to repay/ prepay some of the outstanding borrowings of the company, augment long-term capital and resources for meeting funding requirements for the company’s business activities and for general corporate purposes.

Mahindra & Mahindra had earlier informed the exchanges that the loans and investment committee of the company had approved a proposal to subscribe to the equity shares of MMFSL to the full extent of the company’s rights entitlement. Besides, the board had also approved a proposal to subscribe to additional shares as well as to any unsubscribed portion of the rights issue, up to the total issue size.

Given the current market price (around Rs 130), there is likely to be heavy demand for the rights issue.
