India banks ready to fund Fortis Parkway bid
Indian banks have assured Fortis Healthcare they would give USD 2 billion the hospital chain may need for a takeover battle for Singapore's Parkway Holdings, the Economic Times reported on Monday.

Singapore's securities regulator has given Fortis until July 30 to say whether it intends to make a full offer for hospital operator Parkway, the subject of a partial takeover bid by Malaysian sovereign fund Khazanah.

Fortis, which already holds roughly 25% of Parkway, will have to offer over USD 2.3 billion to buy the rest of it.

Lenders such as State Bank of India, Axis Bank, Punjab National Bank and Yes Bank have given their "in-principle" commitment for the loan, the Economic Times said, citing a person close to the matter.

Citing an unnamed Yes Bank executive, the newspaper said, the private lender had committed Rs 500 crore (USD108 million) to Fortis if the Indian firm decides to place a counter bid for Parkway Holdings.

Officials at Fortis and the banks could not immediately be reached by Reuters for comment.

Fortis had wanted to build a controlling stake in the Singapore company before Khazanah made a surprise USD 835 million offer last month to lift its stake from 23.5% to 51.5%.

 

Fortis Health stock price

On May 27, 2016, Fortis Healthcare closed at Rs 164.05, down Rs 9.65, or 5.56 percent. The 52-week high of the share was Rs 199.20 and the 52-week low was Rs 141.10.


The latest book value of the company is Rs 79.45 per share. At current value, the price-to-book value of the company was 2.06.
