Debt-ridden Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services (IL&FS) today said it has received more than 30 expressions of interest (EOI) for acquiring its stakes in its 22 assets across its domestic road vertical as a part of its asset-monetisation plan.

“IL&FS has received a strong response to the asset-monetisation process for the domestic roads vertical housed under its subsidiary, IL&FS Transportation Networks. More than 30 expressions of interest were received for acquiring IL&FS’ interests in its 22 assets across its domestic road vertical,” IL&FS Transportation Networkssaid.

IL&FS group on December 18, 2018 had initiated the process for asset monetisation. Last date for receipt of EOIs was January 8, 2019.

“Eligibility of the received EOIs is being scrutinised. Interest has been received from a mix of strategic and financial players. Qualifying interested bidders will then be invited to review information on the business that would be shared with them, so as to enable them to submit commercial bids,” the company added.

IL&FS said any binding transaction for the sale of assets, as well as the resulting resolution plan(s), will be subject to requisite approvals (including that of NCLT) before the transactions are concluded.
