The two companies have signed definitive binding agreements.

Reliance Communications said it worked closely with all Lenders and SBI Capital Markets, the advisors appointed by the Lenders, to run a competitive process for the monetisation of its valuable assets, comprising:

*122.4 MHz of 4G Spectrum in the 800/900/1800/2100 MHz bands

Reliance Jio emerged as the highest bidder in a transparent process conducted under the supervision of a high-powered Bid Evaluation Committee, comprising experts from banking, telecom, and law.

The company expects the transactions to close in a phased manner between January and March 2018, subject to lenders’ and other applicable approvals.

The deal consideration comprises primarily of cash payment and includes the transfer of deferred spectrum installments payable to the Department of Telecommunication (DoT).
