We are actively working on various sources of funding; including from the sale of noncritical assets, fresh debt, equity-linked and/or equity fund raising through the domestic and international capital markets, and additional secured leverage at an international subsidiaries-level by optimally re-balancing our debt across various assets.

"We have sought this extension in order to have adequate time to complete this exercise, and meet the redemption obligations in complete alignment with all our stakeholders. We believe these initiatives will enable us to optimally allocate resources between our business requirements and debt obligations in a manner that will allow us to obtain relevant approvals from our senior secured lenders. With these measures we remain fully confident of meeting our obligations and preserving value for all our stakeholders."
