 Equity Infusion and Promoters' Role:

Vodafone Idea plans to infuse Rs 14,000 crore into its business. Reports suggest that existing promoters, Aditya Birla Group (ABG), and UK's Vodafone Group Plc, will contribute half of the total amount. The Economic Times reported that ABG and Vodafone Group are expected to invest Rs 2,000 crore as fresh equity, following a plan submitted to the government. In September 2021, the promoters had already invested Rs 5,000 crore as fresh equity under the government's telecom revival package.

 Fundraising and Financial Performance:

In addition to the promoters' contribution, Vodafone Idea aims to raise another Rs 7,000 crore through direct equity or convertible structures from external investors. This move is part of the company's revival plan. Notably, Vodafone Idea managed to reduce its losses to Rs 6,419 crore in the fourth quarter of FY23, compared to Rs 6,563 crore in the previous year. On a positive note, the revenue for the quarter reached Rs 10,530 crore, reflecting a 2.9% increase compared to the same period last year. The revenue growth can be attributed to an improved subscriber mix and the addition of 4G subscribers.
