New Delhi: Patanjali Ayurveda has raised its bid to acquire Ruchi Soya and had made the revised offer to the Committee of Creditors (CoC) for the debt ridden company, sources said.

The latest bid is around 30 per cent higher than that of the Adani group, which is also in the race to acquire the company with its offer of around Rs 3,300 crore, the sources said.

The new offer was made after the representatives of Baba Ramdev-led Patanjali group met the CoC of Ruchi Soya, said a sources, adding that they had asked the group to sweeten the offer.

Patanjali has also assured the lenders that it would invest extra capital required to revive the company.

Haridwar-based Patanjali group had emerged as the front runner with a bid of over Rs 4,000 crore to acquire Ruchi Soya.

The CoC of the company is meeting on Monday and may finalise the bids.

When contacted, Patanjali spokesperson S K Tijarawala said: "Tomorrow CoC is meeting and we are waiting for the outcome."

Patanjali and Adani apart, Wilmar, Emami Agrotech and Godrej Agrovet have also put in bids to acquire Ruchi Soya.

Patanjali Ayurveda already has a tie-up with the Indore-based Ruchi Soya for edible oil refining and packaging.

Ruchi Soya, facing the insolvency proceedings, has a total debt of about Rs 12,000 crore. The company has many manufacturing plants and its leading brands include Nutrela, Mahakosh, Sunrich, Ruchi Star and Ruchi Gold.

Earlier, Patanjali spokesperson had said that the company has bid for Ruchi Soya as it aims to be a major player in edible oil segment, particularly soybean oil. It also wants to work for farmers benefit.

The appointment was made by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on the application of the creditors Standard Chartered Bank and DBS Bank Ltd, under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code.

Adani Wilmar sells edible oils under Fortune brand.
