Ambuja and ACC shareholders - this is what the Adani acquisition means for you

Adani now will directly controls Ambuja Cements and indirectly controls ACC

Gautam Adani jetted to Geneva to close a deal that has taken rivals by surprise but the new boss for Ambuja and ACC will face many questions from shareholders as discussions of open offer to a possible merger to even a delisting come to the table. Editorji explores the options:

The Deal Dynamics

  • First the basics, Adani has bought over Holcim's India assets which is basically 63.19 percent in Ambuja Cement and 4.48 percent in ACC.
  • Ambuja Cement, in turn, owns 50.05 percent in ACC. So total holding for Adani in ACC is over 54%
  • So now Adani directly controls Ambuja Cements and indirectly controls ACC.

  • The open offer price for shareholders will be set at the offer made to Holcim - Rs 385 for Ambuja Cement and Rs 2,300 for ACC

Delisting on the cards?

  • If there is a successful open offer, Adani's stake would stand at 89% in Ambuja and 81% in ACC
  • As per SEBI norms promoter can only hold 75%, so Adani would have either pare stake or or de-lists the companies.

What about a merger?

  • In early May 2017, both ACC and Ambuja independently announced that they will consider a possible merger
  • This was not pursued due to high cost of transfer of limestone mines and fees for the same
  • Limestone is one of the key raw materials that is required for manufacturing cement.
  • The rules of fees for transfer of mining leases were changed in 2021 making the merger feasible once again
