Jaiprakash defers share sale in Jaypee Infra after prices fall

BY  Reuters
Jaiprakash Infratech, which builds roads and homes, had planned to sell 98.5 million shares on Thursday to raise up to $94 million.

Engineering and construction company Jaiprakash Associates Ltd has deferred a planned sale of shares in its unit Jaypee Infratech  after share prices of the subsidiary fell 8.5 per cent on Wednesday, the parent company said.

"In view of today's unusual fall in the share price of Jaypee Infratech ... Jaiprakash Associates Ltd has decided to defer the said offer for sale," the company said in a statement late on Wednesday.

Jaiprakash Infratech, which builds roads and homes primarily in the north Indian state of Uttar Pradesh, had planned to sell 98.5 million shares on Thursday to raise up to $94 million to meet the market regulator's guidelines on minimum public shareholding.

On Tuesday, Jaiprakash Associates, which owns about 83 per cent of Jaypee Infratech, had said it would sell 27.9 million shares to institutional investors with an option to increase it by another 70.6 million.
