The completion of the transaction will make up to US$100 million available to SpiceJet. This is higher than the US$80 million proposed earlier and has been made possible partly through the participation of Istithmar World Capital and SpiceJet Director, Mr. Ajay Singh.

Completion of the funding of the first tranche is subject to certain conditions precedent, which are expected to be fulfilled in the next two weeks. The remainder of the funding will be received after shareholder approval which the Company will seek shortly.
