The BSE group 'A' stock of face value Rs. 1 has touched a 52 week high of Rs. 25.10 on 17-Feb-2012 and a 52 week low of Rs. 10.49 on 29-Aug-2012.

Lanco Infratech is in talks with strategic and financial investors to sell stake in three power projects separately to raise over Rs 2,500 crore after attempts to sell stake in its arm that owns all the units failed. The shift in strategy comes after almost a year of attempts by Lanco to raise up to Rs 4,150 crore by selling a minority stake in its power holding company to private equity funds or strategic investors.

Lanco Infratech has been struggling to stay afloat as it deals with a staggering debt of Rs 35,500 crore, its inability to recover almost Rs 3,000 crore of receivables from state discoms even as it is forced to run plants at low capacity due to paucity of fossil fuel.
