Indus Gas chief exec raises nearly £126m

Date: Monday 31 Jan 2011

LONDON (ShareCast) - The chief executive of one of the largest companies on AIM has raised nearly £126m from a share sale.

Not much more than 10% of the companies on AIM are valued at more than the amount raised by Indus Gas chief executive Ajay Kalsi. He sold 19.35m shares at 650p each. Indus joined AIM in June 2008 at 164p a share.

Kalsi raised a total of £125.8m from his sale of shares in the India-focused oil and gas explorer and producer. Kalsi and his wife still own 69.15% of the Indus, which is worth £850m.

Lloyds Banking increased its stake in Indus from less than 10% to 11.96%.

Indus generated its first revenue in the six months to September 2010. At $215,000 it is still modest. The first gas production is being sold to the Ramgarth Power Plant. A second well should be going into production soon.

Indus has gross proven plus probable reserves of 307 bcf.
