Kirloskar Industries Will Sell Its 17.41 Percent Stake In Swaraj Engines To Mahindra & Mahindra

M&M Ltd Announced That It Will Acquire An Additional 17.41% Stake in Swaraj Engines

M&M Ltd announced on Tuesday that it will acquire an additional 17.41% stake in Swaraj Engines Ltd from Kirloskar Industries Ltd (KIL) for Rs 296 crore.

According to a regulatory filing, the acquisition will increase the company's stake in Swaraj Engines (SEL) to 52.13 percent from 34.72 percent.

The company plans to buy 21, 14,349 equity shares from KIL for Rs 1,400 per share, representing 17.41 percent of SEL's paid-up equity share capital.

As a result, SEL, which is currently an associate of the company, would become a subsidiary of M&M, according to the filing.

SEL is a manufacturer of diesel engines and their components based in Mohali, Punjab. It was launched in 1985 by the then-Punjab Tractors, which later merged with M & M and the then-Kirloskar Oil Engines (now KIL).

The company reported total revenue from operations of Rs.1, 138.15 crores for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2022.

The company recently announced that it has open bookings for more than 240,000 units of five SUV models, including more than 100,000 units of the new Scorpio. It claims to be the market leader in the SUV revenue segment, with a 17% share in Q1FY23.

On the electric vehicle front, the company hopes to reclaim the lead, aided by the recently unveiled InGlo platform, which will deliver five new electric SUVs under the 'Mahindra Born electric vision,' with critical components supplied by Volkswagen.
