SBICAP sells Kingfisher shares worth over Rs 4.52 cr

Tags: News
SBICAP Trustee Company has sold 1.69 crore shares worth over Rs 4.52 crore of crisis-ridden Kingfisher Airlines.

Post sale, SBICAP's stake in the grounded carrier has come down to 10.10 per cent from 12.19 per cent, Kingfisher said in a regulatory filing.

Promoters held 30.14 per cent stake in Kingfisher, as per the company's December quarter shareholding pattern.

For the October-December quarter, Kingfisher reported a net loss of Rs 822.42 crore. The airline, which has not flown for more than a year, had reported a loss of Rs 755.17 crore in the year-ago period.

Burdened by losses and huge debts, the airline -- part of the group led by liquor baron Vijay Mallya's -- stopped flying in October 2012. Its flying licence also lapsed about two months later.

Shares of the company ended at Rs 2.44 apiece, up 0.83 per cent on the BSE today.
