Domestic steel major Ispat Industries has entered into a pact with Stemcor, the world’s largest independent steel trader to sell 10% stake through preferential allotment. Stemcor will also provide $75 million working capital to the company under an export securitisation programme, Ispat said in a statement.

The steel trading major will also invest towards expanding the facilities to 3 million tonnes a year pellet plant in a planned manner. Ispat Energy is also setting up a 110 MW and a planned 1
