Cairn Energy To Vote Against Vedanta’s $2.3 Billion Offer

July 23, 2015: The British organisation, Cairn Energy Plc is all set to let go of Vedanta Ltd’s $2.3 billion offer for the sake of Cairn India’s underprivileged stakeholders.

The reports are doing rounds in newspapers worldwide and are said to be quite known to people.

The main concern over the backing up of the organisation was that over some basic disagreements over the valuations and it preferred investing in an energy company rather than a resource group.

Cairn India chief Mr. Mayank Ashar had promised that the collaboration is in process, but this news just came in after that. No other spokesperson from the eminent organisation could be contacted, and both Vedanta and Cairn India were out of all reach.

A few from Cairn Energy were contacted and they said that the company is doing its best and cannot comment on anything right now.

Cairn India provides the one and the largest minority shareholder to Cairn Energy for which Vedanta does already have a stake of 59.88 percent shares.

The second largest minority shareholder comes from the life Insurance Group named LIC, which eventually holds a 19 percent stake in the shares.

LIC had earlier retaliated over the number’s deal and has reserved a part of the reservations for themselves.

Basically, the deal is looked upon as a new process over the country’s new reservation policies and shareholder protection law. This law is majorly approved by half of the minority stakeholders before the complete process can take its shape for the same.
