Indian capital markets are at something of a crossroads. Equity and debt issuances are proving difficult to get away, but many deals are still being structured in anticipation of improved market conditions. In addition to this, many listed companies still need to meet the June 2013 deadline for 25% public ownership.
As a result, the decision between an Offer For Sale and an Institutional Placement Programme are at the forefront of many minds. There have also been a number of regulatory updates from Sebi, RBI and FIPB and the debate continues on the future of disclosure requirements, corporate governance and e-IPOs. The restructuring of Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds is also a pressing issue.
IFLR’s India Capital Markets Forum 2012/13 brings together key regulators with leading practitioners from banks, corporates and top international and local law firms to discuss the vital issues for raising capital in 2012 in a panel session format.
The forum will discuss the best ways to raise capital in India, the ideal preparations for floating a company, how to access debt markets with high yield instruments and will provide a comparison of the best methods of raising debt internationally.
