Hotel Leela/ITC: The two organisations will remain in focus today because the diversified conglomerate and owner of marquee hotel properties and minority shareholder ITC, on Monday moved the Mumbai Bench of the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) against luxury hospitality group Hotel Leelaventure Ltd’s plan to sell high profile hotel assets to Canadian fund Brookfield. ITC has challenged the sale to Canadian fund Brookfield to NCLT alleging “oppression and mismanagement” as a minority shareholder in Leela. ITC holds about 7.92 per cent stake in Hotel Leelaventure.
Indiabulls Housing Finance/Lakshmi Vilas Bank: The two organisations will remain in focus for several reasons including Indiabulls group’s plan to offload its stake in Indiabulls Real Estate (IBREL). Reports are there that it has had a discussion on the issue with joint venture partner Blackstone and other leading players such as Godrej Properties. The process will ease out its merger process with the Lakshmi Vilas Bank (LVB) that earlier this month announced its merger with Indiabulls Housing Finance Ltd (IBHL) in a share-swap deal with an intent to create a combined entity with larger capital base and wider geographical reach.
