Vedanta Resources Plc has bought 11% stake for $1.5 Bn in Cairn India Ltd from Malaysia's national oil corporation Petronas.Vedanta bought the stake at Rs.331 a share, a 1.6% discount to Cairn India's closing price of Rs.336 on Monday.Petronas also sold its remaining 3.9% stake to some foreign portfolio investors.Transaction Reference: BloombergVedanta's $9.6 Bn deal to buy a majority stake from Cairn Energy Plc in Cairn India Ltd is yet to receive the Indian government's approval, eight months after its announcement, due to a dispute in royalty payments by Cairn India’s partner, ONGC.Last August, Vedanta had announced to buy 51-60% of Cairn India for as much as $9.6 Mn. Cairn Energy, Cairn India’s majority shareholder, will sell 40-51 % of its holding to Vedanta, depending on the result of the open offer, which is scheduled to close on April 30, 2011. Vedanta is buying the stake from Cairn Energy at Rs.405 per share (includes Rs.50 as a non-compete fee).The acquisition was part of Anil Agarwal's plan to get exposure in India's oil reserves. Vedanta will join BHP Billiton as the only miner with large oil interests. The 11% stake acquisition will help Vedanta gain a majority stake in the company even if an open offer to buy additional shares in Cairn India from minority shareholders, which opened on April 11 and closes on April 30, does not see a big response.Petronas had acquired a 10% stake in Cairn India at Rs.176.48 a share before Cairn India's December 2006 IPO. Petronas bought an additional stake at Rs.224.30 each in a preferential allotment in March 2008 and paid about $240 Mn for an additional 2.3% stake in Cairn India in October 2009, taking its total to 14.9%.Also Read: Vedanta To buy 51-60% In Cairn India for $8.5-9.6 Bn
