This money will be used to refinance loans the company has taken,” said a another person involved in the deal.

Adani Green is into solar projects across India.

Such dollar-denominated bonds yielded 4.625 per cent with 20-year maturity. The company obtained an order book more than $2 billion with global investors like PIMCO, Fidelity, Eastspring betting on the same. Individual investors could not be reached immediately. Global rating company S&P rated the paper with BBB-, lowest in the investment grade.

“Pool of diversified solar assets spread across different sites in India and presence of stronger counterparty, SECI, relative to state distribution utilities should limit volatility,” S&P said in a note.
