In November last year, the board of Grasim Industries approved the divestment of the companys fertiliser business, Indo Gulf Fertilisers (IGF), by way of a slump sale to Indorama India (IIP), a subsidiary of Indorama Corporation, Singapore (Indorama Corporation).
The transfer of the business will be for a lump-sum cash consideration of Rs 2,649 crore, to be paid by IIP to Grasim. This consideration is commensurate to the strength and future potential of the business.
