PDS & Associates has acted for steel maker Mukand Limited in its Rs 160 crore rights issue, which was filed with the Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) last week. Board approval was granted in June.
PDS Mumbai partner Sajid Mohamed advised Mukand, assisted by principal Abhishek Misra who had joined the firm two months ago from SA Partners – a start-up he set up in 2010. PDS & Associates is the corporate advisory arm of PDS Legal, which specialises in tax advisory. Both firms work closely with Ernst & Young (E&Y).
