India: UltraTech Cement has raised its direct offer to buy Binani Cement to US$1.21bn. Previously it made a direct offer of US$1.11bn to Binani Cement in the form of a so-called ‘comfort letter’ that Binani Industries used to stop the insolvency process. UltraTech Cement made this latest offer to the resolution professional handling the insolvency process of Binani Cement, according to the Economic Times newspaper. The move follows a decision by the Supreme Court on 13 April 2018 to block UltraTech Cement’s first offer. However, the court will consider a plea by a group of operational creditors that is backing the higher offer in late-April 2018.
