What does this clause mean?

Chartered Accountant

From ICDR Regulations 2009... Regulation 4 General Conditions for issues.. What does this clause means


(2) No issuer shall make a public issue or rights issue of specified securities:

     (g) unless firm arrangements of finance through verifiable means towards 75% of the stated means of finance, excluding the amount to be raised through the the proposed public issue or rights issue or through the existing identifiable internal accruals have been made.



If a company wants to raise Rs 100 Crore finance for a project , it can go for public issue to the extent of Rs 25 Crores. Balance Rs 75 Crores should be tied up either through means of term loan , promoters contribution , underwriting , private placements , ECB , FDI etc.

Confirmed (firm) arrangements should have been made which can be verified by SEBI. The arrangement should be for 75% of the stated financing requirements. It should not include the amount to be raised through the public/rights issue or any internal accruals.

Thank you very much Sir


Firm arrangements of finance "through verifiable means" towards 75% of stated menas of finance, excluding the amount to be raised through proposed IPO or indentificable internal accurals


Total Cost of Project          :  Rs. 2300 crores

Less: Proposed IPO          :   Rs. 2000 crores

Funds required excluding the net proceeds of the IPO: Rs.300 crores

Required firm arrangements for over 75% of the funds required excluding the IPO :  Rs. 225 crores (i.e. 75% of Rs. 300 crores)


Rs. 225 crores should be finance through verrifiable means of finance for exp. bank or company should have internal accruals to the extent of this amount. Generally for internal accurals companies provided a CA certficate that they have the sufficent cash and bank balance in hand.
