Mahindra & Mahindra terminates deal with CLP India


In a major development, Mahindra & Mahindra said it has cancelled share purchase deal with CLP India.  The deal was to sell the entire stake held by its step down arm Mahindra Renewables in Neo Solren Pvt Ltd (NSPL) for Rs 104.67 crore.

In February this year, M&M had announced that its wholly-owned arm Mahindra Renewables would sell its entire stake in three subsidiaries to CLP India.

“Given that the closing has not occurred within the agreed timeframes, the share purchase agreement which was entered into for sale of 93,15,000 equity shares of Rs 10 each of NSPL held by MRPL to CLP India stands terminated on 10th September 2020,” M&M said.
