Reliance Communications announced an update on the recent development relating to Assets Monetisation programme of the company by the lenders:

1. Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJIO) has received an approval of the Competition Commission of India (CCI) for the sale of Tower, Optic Fibre, Spectrum and MCN assets of the Company and its subsidiaries to RJIO.

2. On March 12, 2018, the National Company Law Tribunal, Mumbai Bench has stayed the tower and Optic Fibre Assets sale to RJIO based on the petition filed by 4.26% minority investors of Reliance Infratel, a subsidiary of the Company. The Company will appeal for vacation of such stay before National Company Law Appellate Tribunal shortly after receipt of the detailed order. There is no stay for sale of Spectrum, MCN and real estate of the Company.

3. The appeal filed by the Company before Hon'ble Bombay High Court against Interim Order for stay of assets monetization passed by Arbitration Tribunal in the matter of Ericsson Master Service Agreement has been dismissed by the High Court. The Company has just received written order of the Hon'ble High Court and will take necessary actions in the best interest of all the stakeholders of the Company.

The Company expects the Secured Lenders of the Company will also take appropriate steps for the expeditious completion of processes transparently run by the lenders for monetization of their securities and realization of their dues.

As legally advised, the claims of minority investors of Reliance Infratel, subsidiary of the Company and / or unsecured vendors cannot under any circumstances rank in higher priority than the undisputed claims of secured domestic and international lenders and any stay granted in this regard is not defensible in law and is liable to be vacated.

Shares of the company declined Rs 0.15, or 0.64%, to trade at  Rs 23.25.  The total volume of shares traded  was  1,624,255 at the BSE (10.08 a.m., Wednesday).
