Inox Wind's Bonus Issue

The board of Inox Wind Ltd. will meet on Thursday, 25 April, to consider the issue of bonus shares, it said in an exchange filing. This is the first such corporate action on record that the company will be undertaking.

The record date for the proposed bonus issue of shares is yet to be determined.

Companies issue bonus shares to capitalize on their free reserves, increase their Earnings Per Share (EPS) and paid-up capital, along with reducing the reserves. Shareholders are issued these shares at no additional cost and hence are also known as free shares.

Last year, Inox Wind's board approved the scheme of amalgamation of Inox Wind Energy into Inox Wind. Shareholders of Inox Wind Energy received 158 equity shares of Inox Wind for every 10 shares held. In addition, 10 share warrants of Inox Wind Energy were also issued for 847 apiece.

Inox Wind recently received an order for the supply of 210 MW of wind turbine generators (WTGs) from Hero Future Energies (HFE). This was a repeat order for its 3 MW Wind Turbine series.
