BCL will also provide unsecured loan of about Rs 45 crore to S P S Processors to make it debt free company by retiring its existing total debt and also for expansion of its manufacturing capacities.

S P S Processors has manufacturing plant located at Kosi, Uttar Pradesh, with operational capacity to produce 250 tons per month (TPM) of H-Acid, a key dye intermediate. The plant is a zero discharge unit and only about one and half year old.

S P S Processors also has all necessary permissions to manufacture Vinyl Sulphone (VS-another key dye intermediate) as well as dyestuff, at the same plant. The board approved a plan to build a 350-TPM VS plant at the cost of about Rs 10 crore.

This investment will help BCL to increase its manufacturing capacity of dyes intermediates by 25% and consolidate its position in the local & global markets of dye intermediates and dyestuff. This transaction will be entirely funded through internal accruals and is targeted to close before 31 March 2017 .

This acquisition is not a related party transaction and the promoters/promoter group/group companies do not have any interest in S P S Processors.
