GVK Power and Infrastructure has announced the successful completion of the sale of its residual stake of 10% in Bangalore International Airport (BIAL), held through its subsidiary, Bangalore Airport Infrastructure Developers Private (BAIDPL) to Fairfax India Holdings Corporation (Fairfax India) for a consideration of Rs 12.90 billion (approximately USD 200 million).
 
In March 2017, GVK closed an agreement which was signed during March 2016 with Fairfax India to sell a 33% stake in BIAL. It had retained a 10% stake and the management of BIAL. Subsequently, in June 2017, GVK announced its decision to conclude the sale of this 10% residual stake to Fairfax India, subject to necessary consents and approvals.
 
G V K Reddy, Founder Chairman & Managing Director of GVK while speaking on the development said, ''Since deleveraging is currently our top priority, we decided to part ways with BIAL. However, we would like to reiterate that the Airports sector will continue to be a core focus area for GVK.''
 
''We will now focus on Mumbai as well as the Navi Mumbai airport for which we have won the bid  and also on selectively evaluating privatisation opportunities. Capacity optimisation and real estate development will now be the priority areas for the existing Mumbai airport,'' added Reddy.

Shares of the company declined Rs 0.33, or 4.33%, to settle at Rs 7.29. The total volume of shares traded was 1,567,231 at the BSE (Thursday).
