Chinese lenders, including China Development Bank, Industrial and Commercial Bank of China and Exim Bank of China, have demanded at least $2.1 billion from embattled Indian tycoon Anil Ambani’s Reliance Communications Ltd., that slid into bankruptcy earlier this year.
Exim Bank of China sought payment of 33.6 billion rupees, while Industrial and Commercial Bank of China claimed 15.54 billion rupees, according to the filing.
Anil Ambani’s older sibling and Asia’s richest man Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd. had earlier offered to purchase RCom’s assets in a 173 billion rupee deal, which would have helped partly pay off lenders. The deal fell through after encountering regulatory hurdles.
Mukesh Ambani had in March helped his younger brother avert the risk of being jailed by making an $80 million payment on his behalf to the local unit of Ericsson AB for past maintenance services.
Following is a list of Reliance Communication’s top seven lenders as of June 13. Chinese banks account for about one-fourth of the total claims.
Reliance Communications on Monday released list of financial creditors that are claiming 573.82 billion rupees under Indian bankruptcy proceedings.
Investment bank VTB Capital of Russia has also featured in the list with a claim of 5.11 billion rupees while Standard Chartered Bank (London), Deutsche Bank (Hong Kong), DBS Bank and Emirates NBD Bank are among other foreign institutions in the financial creditors chart.
