ADAG stocks rallied in today’s trade on news that RCOM and Ericsson AB are in talks to settle the outstanding debt directly than through the insolvency process.
Yesterday, the NCLT had initiated insolvency proceedings against RCOM after accepting a petition from Ericsson AB regarding unpaid dues amounting to Rs1,160cr. The settlement of dues by RCOM would make sense considering that the insolvency process would result in change in ownership of the company.
This news provides some hope that RCOM would be able to avoid insolvency proceedings. Further, insolvency proceedings would also put a hold on any asset sales. This would have stopped RCOM’s asset sale to Reliance Jio. However, it remains to be seen whether the NCLT would accept this new arrangement and would roll back the insolvency proceedings. We still recommend that investors use this opportunity to exit the stock, as there is still a lot of uncertainty surrounding the future of RCOM.
