Wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy has signed definitive agreements with Dilip Shanghvi Family and Associates (DSA) for equity investments of Rs 1,800 crore.

“Post allotment, DSA shareholding in Suzlon Energy will be 23 per cent shares (based on current shareholding), while the Tanti Family will hold 24 per cent shares,” Suzlon Energy said in a statement.

Management control will remain with the Tanti family by virtue of pooling arrangement for voting.

“This financial investment is in sync with the Prime Minister’s long-term vision and immense potential of the renewable energy market.

“While we believe Suzlon has the potential to emerge as a global leader in the renewable energy space from India, it will take substantial and sustained effort on part of the management team to achieve a significant operating performance improvement,” Dilip Shanghvi said.

“These bold steps will strengthen our capital structure permanently, enabling significant deleveraging and liquidity to ramp up volumes rapidly.
