IFR-India's ILFS plans up to US$406m Singapore trust IPO

Wed Sep 26, 2012 5:36pm IST

SINGAPORE, Sept 26 (IFR) - India's Infrastructure Leasing and Financial Services plans to list its wind power business through an roughly S$400m-$500m (US$325m-$406m) business trust IPO in Singapore.

The IPO is likely in early 2013 and the company has mandated Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan and Nomura as the bankers, a source said. "The issue size is unclear because the company is yet to decide which projects will be part of the trust."

The company's website shows it owns wind power projects totalling around 50MW. ILFS is an infrastructure development and finance company.

State-owned Life Insurance Corporation of India owns a 25.94% stake in ILFS, Japan's Orix Corp 23.59%, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority 11.35% and Housing Development Finance Corp 10.74%. The rest of the stake is owned by other banks and mutual funds.

At present, Ascendas India Trust and Indiabulls Properties are listed as business trusts in Singapore. India's Religare Health Trust is currently pre-marketing its US$400m Singapore business trust IPO at an indicative 8.5%-9% yield.

Earlier this year, Reliance Communications was unable to sell its US$1bn trust IPO in Singapore despite offering a 9.5%-11.50% yield. (Reporting by S. Anuradha)
