At the time of the March filing, Tata put Welspun’s Enterprise Value at the above figure for 100% of shares. Welspun Energy’s turnover for 2016 was 7.68 billion rupees (US$110 million), operating “close to 300MW” of its own projects with a further 840MW of renewable power projects across India owned and operated through further subsidiaries.

“The acquisition will enable the company to expand its renewables energy portfolio,” Tata said.

According to Tata Group, acquiring the renewables arm of the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company will bring Tata Power Renewable Energy Ltd – which it describes as Tata’s “primary investment vehicle for clean and renewable energy based power generation” – up to 2,300MW of assets in its renewables portfolio.
