In a recent development, Ridi Power Company Limited (RIDI) has obtained the final approval from the Electricity Regulatory Commission to issue right shares to its shareholders.The company has received the green light to issue these right shares at a ratio of 1:0.5, equivalent to 50% of the current shares.
The decision to issue 50% right shares was reached during a board of directors meeting held on 4th Magh, 2079. The company proposed to distribute these right shares on the basis of the paid-up capital, which will be adjusted after considering 40% bonus shares for the fiscal year 2078/79, totaling Rs. 1,54,89,01,200. Once the proposed 77,44,506 units of right shares are incorporated, the total paid-up capital of Ridi Power Company will witness an increase, reaching Rs. 2.32 Arba.
The motivation behind issuing these right shares stems from the company’s plan to invest in the Tallo Balephi hydropower project initiated by Sajha Power Development Company. The decision aligns with the company’s growth strategy and commitment to expanding its operations in the energy sector.
