Infotel was the winner with all 22 circles outbidding all other companies. Bharti & Qualcomm won 4
circles while Aircel & Tikonia won 8 & 5 circles respectively. Augere (Mauritius) won a sole circle.

HFCL Infotel which won bids on all 22 circles will have to pay a total of Rs. 12803 crores

       -   The bid amount will put additional strain on a company which already has debt worth Rs
           1479 crores, as on 31st March 2009, on its books.

       -   Mahendra Nahata’s HFCL holds 53.36% in the company. The entire promoter shareholding
           is pledged.

       -   Other important aspect is high shareholding of financial institutions like IDBI (19.73%), OBC
           (3.75%) and LIC (1.76%)
       -   Expect to rope in a strategic partner. Rumors are RIL may be one of the suitors.
       -   We may see institutions selling their stake (total shareholding around 26%)
       -   The stock of the company was trading at Rs 10.14, hitting an upper cicuit

Bharti AIrtel won bids on 4 circles and will pay an amount close to Rs 3300 crores for 4 circles.

       -   The company had already paid Rs 12000 crore for the 3G license and completed Zain
           acquisition this week only. So the new amount will be another strain on a company which
           was debt free last year before acquisition of Zain Telecom.

       -   The stock of the company was trading at Rs 274.25 down by 3.76%                                                          Karan Sharma (
