Details and reasons for restructuring

The restructuring being undertaken through a Scheme of Arrangements which, inter alia, provides for:

(a) reduction by way of cancellation of all the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares of the Company and the issuance and allotment of the Ordinary Shares, as consideration for such reduction. The Ordinary Shares issued by the Company as the consideration pursuant to the Scheme is hereinafter referred to as ‘New Ordinary Shares’;

(b) creation of a Trust which will receive the New Ordinary Shares from the Company on behalf and for the benefit of each of the Relevant Shareholders as contemplated under the Scheme and the mechanism to discharge obligations and completion in terms of the Scheme;

(c) various other matters incidental to, consequential to and/ or otherwise connected with the above, under Section 230 – Section 232 and other applicable provisions of the Act and the SEBI Scheme Circulars.

Upon effectiveness of the Scheme, the Company shall issue 7 fully paid up New Ordinary shares of face value of INR 2 (Indian Rupees Two only) for every 10 ‘A’ Ordinary Shares of face value of INR 2 (Indian Rupees Two only) as a consideration for the reduction and cancellation of ‘A’ Ordinary Shares.

For the purposes of, inter alia, transfer of the consideration for the reduction of the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares by the Company to the relevant shareholders, the Company will, prior to the date of effectiveness of the Scheme, settle a trust. The trust will receive the New Ordinary Shares from the Company on behalf and for the benefit of each of the relevant shareholders as contemplated in the Scheme and will thereafter, post-sale of the requisite number of New Ordinary Shares required to discharge certain obligations, inter alia, in relation to taxes payable and completion of the other actions as specified in the Scheme, distribute the remaining New Ordinary Shares to the relevant shareholders in terms of the Scheme.

The issuance of consideration in the form of New Ordinary Shares rather than cash is expected to have various benefits, including:

(i) preserving liquidity for the Company’s growth;

(ii) allowing the holders of the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares to continue to participate in the Company’s performance through the Ordinary Shares; and

(iii) other benefits as set out in the Scheme.

The Company issued the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares in 2008 as part of a rights issue with the objective of, inter alia, funding certain overseas investments. The rights attached to the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares are similar to the rights attached to the Ordinary Shares in all respects except as to voting and dividend. Subsequent regulatory changes restricted the issuance of shares with differential voting rights, resulting in a narrow market for similar instruments. The discount in the price at which the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares trade vis-à-vis the Ordinary Shares has increased since the date of listing of the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares. This has the effect of significantly understating the Company’s market capitalization, contributes to a complex capital structure and increases administrative complexity vis-à-vis maintaining 2 (two) separate classes of shares and therefore, the Company seeks to reorganise its share capital in accordance with Section 230 232 of the Act by cancelling and extinguishing ‘A’ Ordinary Shares and paying consideration to the holders of the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares in the form of New Ordinary Shares.

The reorganization of share capital envisaged by the Scheme is expected to:

(a) simplify and consolidate the Company’s capital structure and preserve liquidity for the Company’s growth; and

(b) be value accretive and beneficial for all shareholders of the Company, and allow the holders of the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares and Ordinary Shares to continue to participate in the Company’s performance.

 

Quantitative and/ or qualitative effect of restructuring

The reduction of the ‘A’ Ordinary Shares contemplated by the Scheme will not affect the ability of the Company to meet its financial obligations/ commitments. The Scheme will not have any adverse impact on the creditors and will be in the best interest of the concerned stakeholders of the Company, including the holders of Ordinary Shares and the holders of ‘A’ Ordinary Shares.

 

Details of benefit, if any, to the promoter/promoter group/group companies from such proposed restructuring

There are no unique benefits that will accrue to the promoter/promoter group due to the Scheme which will not accrue to other shareholders. As on date, both the promoter/ promoter group as well as the public hold ‘A’ Ordinary Shares and upon effectiveness of the Scheme, the effective voting rights of the promoter/promoter group will reduce by 3.16%.

Annexure B

 

Simplification and consolidation of capital structure

The Board of Tata MotorsLtd has approved a Schemeof Arrangement for a capitalreduction of the ‘A’ Ordinary shares and issueOrdinary shares as a consideration for the reduction.
The Capital Reduction Consideration translates to a 23% premium1 to the ‘A’ Ordinary Share price.
This will resultin a 4.2% reductionin the number of outstanding equityshares, making it value accretive for all shareholders.
The termination of the ADS program alongwith the proposedscheme of capitalreduction of ‘A’ Ordinary shares will simplify and consolidate all traded equitysecurities of Tata Motors into Ordinary Shares listed only on NSE and BSE.
The above transaction is subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals.

Mumbai, July 25, 2023:

Post completion of delisting of the AmericanDepository Shares from the New York Stock Exchange as of 23rd January 2023, Tata Motors Ltd (“TML”)) has currently two types of listed equity securities, namely Ordinary Shares and ‘A’ Ordinary Shares. The‘A’ Ordinary Shares carry 1/10th of voting rights of Ordinary Shares and are

 

 


 

entitled to five percentage points higher dividend. To further simplify the capital structure, the Board of Directors of TML, have today approved a Scheme of Arrangement (“Scheme”) for cancellation of ‘A’ OrdinaryShares, and issue of 7 Ordinary Sharesfor every 10 ‘A’ Ordinary Shares as consideration (“Capital Reduction Consideration”).

The ‘A’ Ordinaryshares were first issued by TML in 2008 and subsequently in a furtherQIP in 2010 and rightsissue in 2015. Regulatory changes have since restricted the issuance of such instruments with differential votingrights and TML remains the only large listed corporate with such an instrument. The ‘A’ Ordinary Shares currently trade at ~ 43%1 discount to Ordinary Shares. The Capital Reduction Consideration implies a 23% premium1 on the previous day’s closing share price of ‘A’ Ordinary shares, translating to 30% discount1 over Ordinary Share price and significantly below its historical averages. The Scheme will lead to a reduction in the outstanding equity shares by 4.2%, making it value accretive for all shareholders.

The Scheme also envisages creation of a Trust with an independent third party acting as a Trustee, to operationalize the various actions required to give effect to the Scheme in accordance with applicable laws. The Trust shall receive the Ordinary shares issued by TML to the ‘A’ Ordinary holders and will then issue the Ordinary Shares as per the Capital Reduction Consideration on a ‘net’ basis to the ‘A’ Ordinary shareholders, post settlement of applicable taxes.

The Scheme is subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals. PWC is the independent registered valuer for the transaction, with Citigroup and Axis Capital acting as fairness opinion providers for the ‘A’ Ordinary and Ordinary shareholders respectively. Cyril Amarchand Mangaldas are the legal advisor to TML for the transaction.
