Sugar manufacturer Shree Renuka Sugars is looking to raise around $250-350 million (Rs 1,350-1,925 crore) through a bond sale through its Brazilian subsidiary, Renuka Do Brasil S/A.

Last year, the company failed to raise money from Brazilian sugar manufacturer ETH Bioenergia, owned by three partners, namely, PE fund Ashmore, Brazilian Brandes Bank and Brazilian conglomerate Odebrecht, by selling stake in the Brazilian company. However, the talks fell through due to valuation mismatches. Credit Suisse's Brazil arm is said to be advising the company on the bond sale. (The Economic Times)
