JSW to revise bid for Monnet
JSW Cement managing director Parth Jindal said “We are very keen on Monnet Ispat and Bhushan Steel.”
“At a right price Essar Steel will be very attractive for JSW Steel,” Jindal said.
JSW Steel’s earlier offer for Monnet was rejected by the lead creditor SBI.
Speaking about US operations, Jindal said in the Trump administration, the operations at Texas is now making money at EBITA level after a decade of losses and the company has now decided to infuse USD 350 million further.
JSW’s US plate mill and pipe unit was bought a cost of USD one billion. The company had earlier made two attempts to sell it off, but was not successful owing to valuations.
While a new plate mill is being put up at a cost of USD 150 million along with an electric arc furnace, the group is awaiting an environmental impact study of the new project.
Jindal remained focused in sports and said the company is promoting both Olympic games and franchise sports including buying an IPL team.
