Indian infrastructure financing company IL&FS Group said it has completed the sale of its 52.26% stake in Terracis Technologies (TTL) to Falcon SG.

The move has helped the group resolve about INR12.75bn ($171.11m) of debt and will see IL&FS completely exit technology business, the company said in a press release.

IL&FS Group is not a listed entity, though its key subsidiaries are publicly traded on NSE and BSE – including IL&FS Transportation Networks (ITNL), IL&FS Engineering and Construction and IL&FS Investment Managers.

“This is an equity-positive transaction wherein the entire debt has been taken over by the new promoter. Apart from some foreign banks and institutions, State Bank of India, Axis Bank and Indian Bank were key Indian lenders to the company,” IL&FS Group said in the statement issued today.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
