Completely Debt Free After Paying 2,925 Crore Loans: Ruchi Soya

Ruchi Soya repays entire loans of Rs 2,925 crore

New Delhi:

Edible oil major Ruchi Soya on Friday said it has repaid Rs 2,925 crore loans to banks and has become a debt-free company.

Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali Ayurved-led Ruchi Soya has recently raised Rs 4,300 crore through its follow-on public offer, and part of the proceeds has been utilised to repay the debt.

Acharya Balkrishna, MD of Patanjali Ayurved Ltd, tweeted that Ruchi Soya has become debt-free.

In its draft red herring prospectus, the company had mentioned that it would repay the loan of around Rs 1,950 crore to the lenders, a company spokesperson said.

However, the company has decided to repay the entire debt amount of Rs 2,925 crore to its lenders.

The money was paid to a consortium of banks led by the State Bank of India. The other banks in the consortium are Punjab National Bank, Union Bank of India, Syndicate Bank and Allahabad Bank.

In 2019, Patanjali acquired Ruchi Soya for Rs 4,350 crore through insolvency.
