GVK Completes Sale Of Its 10% Residual Stake In Bangalore Airport To Fairfax India

GVK Power and Infrastructure Ltd has announced the successful completion of the sale of its residual stake of 10% in Bangalore International Airport Limited (“BIAL”), held through its subsidiary, Bangalore Airport Infrastructure Developers Private Limited, (“BAIDPL”) to Fairfax India Holdings Corporation (“Fairfax India”) for a consideration of Rs 1,290 Crore (approximately USD 200 million).

In March 2017, GVK closed an agreement which was signed during March 2016 with Fairfax India to sell a 33% stake in BIAL. It had retained a 10% stake and the management of BIAL. Subsequently, in June 2017, GVK announced its decision to conclude the sale of this 10% residual stake to Fairfax India, subject to necessary consents and approvals.  

Dr. G V K Reddy, Founder Chairman & Managing Director of GVK while speaking on the development said, “Since deleveraging is currently our top priority, we decided to part ways with BIAL. However, we would like to reiterate that the Airports sector will continue to be a core focus area for GVK.”
