Hotel Leela Venture on Tuesday said its board has approved the proposed change in name of the company to 'HLV Ltd' or some other suitable name, if it is not available. As part of the Brookfield transaction, the word "Leela" would not be a part of the company's name, Hotel Leela Venture said in a filing to the BSE.

"The total consideration of Rs 3,950 crore was received from Brookfield on October 16, 2019 and the entire consideration, net of transaction-related costs of Rs 70 crore, were used to repay the banks and financial institutions who were lenders to the company, in full and final settlement, as one-time settlement," it added.

Hotel Leela Venture said that after the full and final settlement with its lenders, they have issued release letters to the company.
