Case Study

M/s RCTC Ltd. has sought a long term loan of Rs 5 Crores from IDBI but is not very sure of getting the loan approved. The matter is under consideration and different type of information sought by IDBI has already been provided. Besides this the Finance Director Mr. Rahul has personally visited the office of IDBI and explained various points as desired by IDBI.

In fact M/s RCTC Ltd. is in urgent requirement of money because if adequate amount of funds are not provided the planned diversification project is likely to fail and the company might have to suffer huge losses due to delay in the project and consequential serious implication. Mr. Rahul has been negotiating with IDBI on a number of issues regarding sanction and release of long term loan of Rs. 5 Crores.

In addition to the alternative of raising finance through IDBI there exist some other choices. The next possible choice is to raise bridge loan from existing bankers and simultaneously come out with public issue. While evaluating the proposal to issue shares to public Mr. Rahul is personally convinced that present market situation is such that it is difficult to sell a public issue of Rs. Crores. However given the product range and reputation of the company their bankers are of the opinion that the public issue will be completely subscribed. The Finance Director is also open to the suggestion because the need for finance is on long term basis but he has some thing else in his mind. He is also evaluating other alternatives but is still undecided.

Based on the above situation answer the following:-

(a) Enumerate what additional choices may be available before the Finance Director, to raise the funds?
