Cable and broadband service provider NXTDIGITAL has said that its rights issue aggregating to a total of 96,20,463 shares has been subscribed 1.94 times. The company has received Rs 560.13 crore or 194% more than the rights issue size of Rs. 288.61 crore. The rights issue, which had closed on 29th November, will help the company to pare its debt.

NXTDIGITAL MD and CEO Vynsley Fernandes said, “The Rights Issue was another positive step taken by the company towards our stated objective of reducing our overall debt. With this, the debt-to-equity ratio is expected to significantly come down to approximately 1.5  times vis-à-vis the pre-issue debt-to-equity ratio of over 4 times. This is without doubt, a robust position from which to continue on our path of digital transformation."

NXTDIGITAL Wholetime Director and CFO Amar Chintopanth added, “In line with the company’s objectives of paring debt, against the sale of land at Hyderabad, the Company has already received 25% of the total consideration of Rs 69.30 crores. Considering that  the conditions precedent for the sale have been completed within the agreed timelines the Company expects the transaction to close before the end of the financial year and the entire proceeds to be realized. Such proceeds would also be utilized towards reducing of the Company’s debt."
