You are required to:

Answer:-

Bhaiya ab warrant wale provisions kya bolte hai ICDR ke, the price at which shares will be applied shall be fixed at the

time of issue of warrants and in case price is not fixed than some formula shall be given on basis of which the share

issue price will be determined for example the issuer can state that shares will be issued at 25% higher price than the

prevailing market price or the issuer may also give a price band like shares can be applied for the price of ₹ 30-35.

At least 25% of the consideration amount based on the exercise price shall also be received in advance i.e at the time of

issue of warrants.

However, in case the exercise price of warrants is based on a formula, 25% consideration amount based on the cap

price of the price band determined for the linked equity shares or convertible securities shall be received in advance.

Hence, the promoters are liable to pay at least 25% of the share warrant i.e ₹ 70 per share warrant. This amount

should be paid on the date of the allotment of share warrant by the promoters.

Amount to be payable by the promoters at the time of allotment of the warrants = 20,00,000 shares x ₹ 70 = ₹ 14 crore.
