    RCom debt resolution plan: Lenders to take 51% stake

     

    Under this plan, the company will pay off up to Rs. 17,000 crore of its debt, out of the proceeds of monetization of Spectrum, Towers, and Fiber and MCN (Media Convergence Nodes) assets. RCom will pay additional Rs. 10,000 Crore of its debt, out of the proceeds of sales and commercial development of DAKC and other prime real estate assets across 8-metros.

    The new RCom will have sustainable and profitable B2B - nonmobile business portfolio comprises.

    The new RCom will have the sustainable and conservative level of debt of only Rs 6,000 crore. Cost of debt will be lower due to an ability to raise debt funds overseas at low cost.
