The total amount to be raised through this issuance is around Rs.70.28 crores. Each warrant is convertible into one fully paid-up equity share, with the conversion option exercisable within 18 months from the date of allotment.

Key Appointments and EGM

The board appointed Mr. Haresh Sanghvi as the scrutinizer for the remote e-voting process at the upcoming Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), scheduled for August 7, 2024. Additionally, Care Rating Limited has been appointed as the monitoring agency for the conduct of the preferential issue.
