Tata Motors raises $300 million via debt securities

Tata Motors has raised $300 million (about Rs 1,800 crore) through an issue of debt securities carrying a fixed interest rate.

TML Holdings Pte Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the company, issued and allotted $300 million in principal amount of 5.75 per cent senior fixed rate notes due 2021, Tata Motors said today in a filing to the BSE.

"The net proceeds from the notes will be used to repurchase certain equity shares issued to Tata Motors and for general corporate purposes," it added.
