Tamil Nadu-based Sakthi Sugars Ltd is issuing equity shares to a fund managed by Apollo Alternative Assets, an affiliate of global private equity major Apollo Management. 

Sakthi Sugars, a South India-based sugar maker, is issuing shares in the company upon conversion of  foreign currency convertible bonds (FCCBs) issued on May 15, 2006. Apollo Asia Opportunity Alpha (Mauritius) Ltd, which is registered as a foreign institutional investor (FII), will get less than a 1% stake for FCCBs worth $1 million.

Sakthi is engaged in the manufacturing of sugar, industrial alcohol, generation of power and processing of soya beans. It was founded in 1961 and is based in Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu. The shares of Sakthi were down by more than 3.5% today at 2:45 PM, trading at Rs 94 per share. Others like JP Morgan Mauritius Holdings, Third Avenue Global Value  (Master) Fund, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank have also converted FCCBs in Sakthi.
