    Dear Sir,

    Promoter’s holding on this has gone down in 2008 from 28% to 10%. Looks like knowing the company’s health they have sold out their stake. Is it not negative about the stock?



  2. Thanks Nsri for bringing this to my notice. However what BSEINDIA site shows is 25 % share holding by promoters and 32% by FI/FII’s. Latest is that Morgan Stanley has converted FCCB’s @ Rs. 150 per share.
    XL Telecom – Outcome of Committee Meeting
    Announcement: XL Telecom & Energy Ltd has informed BSE that a Committee of the Board of Directors at its meeting held on September 15, 2009, inter alia, have allotted 11,19,093 (Eleven lacs Nineteen Thousand Ninety Three only) Equity Shares of Rs 10/- each of the Company at a premium of Rs 150/- per share to “Morgan Stanley Mauritius Company Ltd” upon conversion of Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds to the extent of US$ 4.50 million.

    Consequently, the paid up Equity Share Capital of the Company has been increased from 19655857 Equity Shares of Rs 10/- each to 20774950 Equity Shares of Rs 10/- each.

    Thanks and as promised I shall check it up with the Co. Secretary..

    Thank you Sir for your reply !! Company’s share price is sinking on lower circuits these days.. Don’t know If it would be good to be braveheart and buy.. because Rs28 per share for XL Tele is a mouthwatering price against its all time highs of 500+. What do you suggest ?


  4. elegant_boy says:



    why Morgan has started selling its share which it just bought month back ?

    something fishy ?


  5. I find it as one of the cheapest stocks in Solar Energy segment.However you can wait and see if it forms a new low from its previous low of Rs. 26.That could be a support price..However if it starts to jump from present level of Rs. 28, then you may consider to re-enter at Rs. 34 or so.

    Best of luck..
