The demerger's draft Scheme is contingent upon statutory, customary, and regulatory clearances counting permissions of the s stakeholders and creditors, NCLT, as well as other regulators as required.

The planned rationale for the TAN Business (Mining Chemicals) demerger from STL to DMSPL is concentrated on leadership, the real potential that can be anticipated to be released as a consequence of the demerger, and merger of MFTPL with STL. The deliberate rationale for MFTPL and STL's amalgamation is the breakdown of corporate setup and economies of ranking.

Chairman & Managing Director, Sailesh C. Mehta, commented on the development, stating that throughout the years, the DFPCL group has remarkably enhanced its operational performance, created cash flows, and fortified the balance sheet while concentrating on the growing investments in greenfield developments. The offered corporate restructuring is anticipated to significantly help in creating a well-built independent business platform inside the bigger DFPCL brand umbrella, resulting in the enhancement of stakeholders' value over time.

Before, the strategy of DFPCL Group was majorly concentrated on production, capacity utilisation, cost optimisation, and efficiency improvement. After ample consideration for delivering an outward client focus, a defined 'Transformation Strategy' along with the subsequent drivers have been accomplished, such as Move from a Volume focus to Value/Premium End-User Focus, Focus on Customised Specialty in place of Commodity, and Shift from Competition Pricing to Value Pricing.

This revolutionary transformation in strategy was necessitated in order to enhance client experience significantly, improve market share, and for building a sustainable brand. On the basis of value creation and growth trajectory, both TAN and Crop Nutrition enterprises have gained a strategic size and relevancy to earn stand-alone corporate identities and focused administration. The transaction might deliver the strategic flexibility required to drive stable growth and create value for the end users, workers and other shareholders.

STL and Deepak Mining Services will fully become DFPCL-owned subsidiaries. STL would now be solely focusing on the crop and nutrition business (CNB). NPK and speciality fertilisers are manufactured by STL in India. Mahadhan Farm Technologies, which is a fully owned STL subsidiary that makes fertilisers that are soluble in water, would get merged with STL.

According to the company's statement, TAN and CNB had no branding, product, markets, seasonality, or value proposition overlapping between them, and the demerger might release the real potential and allow sector-specific financial and strategic investments in respective companies.
