印媒:安尼尔·安巴尼卷入6.8亿美元未偿还贷款的起诉案

Anil Ambani dragged to court for $680 million unpaid loan

安尼尔·安巴尼卷入6.8亿美元未偿还贷款的起诉案

Three Chinese banks are suing the brother of Asia’s richest man in a London court for failing to pay back $680 million in defaulted loans.

The Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd., China Development Bank and the Export-Import Bank of China agreed to loan $925.2 million to Anil Ambani’s firm Reliance Communications Ltd. in 2012 on condition that he provide a personal guarantee, ICBC’s lawyer Bankim Thanki told the court. Some repayments were made by the wireless carrier but in February 2017, it defaulted on its payment obligations.

The embattled Indian tycoon says that while he agreed to give a non-binding “personal comfort letter,” he never gave a guarantee tied to his personal assets. He’s the brother of Mukesh Ambani, who’s worth $56 billion and is the wealthiest man in Asia and 14th richest in the world. Anil, on the other hand, has seen his personal fortune dwindle over recent years, losing his billionaire status.

三家中国银行因亚洲首富的弟弟未能偿还6.8亿美元的违约贷款,在伦敦一家法院将其起诉。

工商银行的律师Bankim Thanki在法庭上表示,2012年,中国工商银行、中国国家开发银行和中国进出口银行同意向安尼尔的企业信实电信发放9.252亿美金的贷款,由其提供个人担保。这家无线运营商偿付了部分贷款,但2017年2月,其未能继续履行偿付义务。

这位四面楚歌的印度大亨说,虽然他同意写一封不具约束力的“个人保证书”,但他没有用自己的个人资产提供担保。他是穆克什安尼尔的兄弟,穆克什安尼尔身价560亿美元,是亚洲最富有的人,全球排名第14。另一方面,安尼尔近年来个人财富缩水,丢掉了亿万富翁的地位。

Anil Ambani was chairman of Reliance Communications, which fell into administration earlier this year. His wider telecommunications-to-infrastructure empire Reliance Group has continued to struggle under a mountain of debt. As of July, four of its biggest units, excluding the phone company, had about 939 billion rupees ($13.2 billion) of debt, Bloomberg reported in September.

Anil Ambani was caught up in a similar case earlier this year, when India’s Supreme Court threatened him with prison after Reliance Communications failed to pay to pay 5.5 billion rupees to Ericsson AB’s Indian unit. The judges gave him a month to find the funds, and his brother, Mukesh, stepped in to make the payment.

The brothers’ relationship has been fraught since their father’s death left behind a vast empire that was split between them. While Mukesh’s oil & petrochemicals businesses have flourished, Anil’s assets dwindled.

According to a court filing, Anil went to Beijing in the winter of 2011 to negotiate the loan with ICBC’s former Chairman Jiang Jianqing directly. The lenders sought a share pledge before granting the loans, but the legal dispute centers on whether Ambani or one of his associates went on to provide a personal guarantee as security.

安尼尔•安巴尼是信实电信董事长,该公司今年早些时候进入破产管理程序。他旗下业务范围更广的电信到基础设施帝国信实集团仍在巨额债务的重压下挣扎。据彭博社9月份的报道,截至7月份,该公司最大的四个部门(不包括电话公司)负债约9,390亿卢比(约合132亿美元)。

今年早些时候,安尼尔•安巴尼曾因另一起类似案件被起诉,当时印度最高法院以监禁相威胁,因为信实电信未能向爱立信印度子公司支付55亿卢比。法官们给了他一个月的时间来筹集这笔资金,他的兄弟穆克什替其支付这笔款项。

自从父亲去世后,这对兄弟的关系就一直很紧张。在穆克什的石油和石化业务蓬勃发展的同时,安尼尔的资产却在缩水。

一份法庭文件显示,安尼尔在2011年冬天前往北京,与工行前董事长姜建清直接谈判贷款事宜。两家银行在发放贷款前曾希望获得股份质押,但法律纠纷的焦点在于,安巴尼或他的一名助手是否继续提供个人抵押品作为担保。

Hasit Shukla, Reliance’s commercial & treasury head, signed a personal guarantee on Ambani’s behalf by power of attorney when the loan was set up seven years ago, Thanki said. But Ambani didn’t give Shukla the authority to sign for him, making the guarantee non-binding, his lawyer Robert Howe said in written submissions.

Industrial & Commercial Bank is the sole claimant in the London case, and is representing itself and the other two lenders.

In Thursday’s court hearing, ICBC’s lawyers asked Judge David Waksman for an early ruling or a conditional order requiring Ambani to pay into court the unpaid sum and interest under the facility agreement. Ambani has declined to give any evidence of his wealth, they said.

Thanki称,七年前申请贷款时,信实商业及财务主管Hasit Shukla代表安巴尼签署了一份个人保证书。但安巴尼的律师罗伯特·豪在书面文件中说,安巴尼没有授权舒克拉为他签字,因此这份担保没有约束力。

工商银行是伦敦起诉案件的唯一索赔人,代表着自己和其他两家银行。

在周四的庭审中,工行律师要求法官大卫•瓦克斯曼尽早做出裁决,或发布一项有条件的命令,要求安巴尼向法庭支付贷款协议规定的未付贷款本金和利息。他们说,安巴尼拒绝提供任何有关他财产的证明文件。

This time the Family bonding is valued at 680 billion . Will Mukesh again extend the same brotherly affection based on Family Values and rise to the occasion to bail out Anil, if the verdict is adverse. Need to Wait and Watch

这一次贷款金额达6800亿美元。如果判决结果是不利的,穆克什会再次基于家庭价值观,给予同样的兄弟之爱,并在必要时帮助安尼尔摆脱困境吗?还需要等待和观察。

Mr. Anil Amvbani''s focus from the very beginning has been to ''beat Mukesh'' in making money and not managing his money or businesses for effective growth. May be luck has not been in his favour, but it is not luck alone that works. Hard and intellegent work does.....

安尼尔•安巴尼先生从一开始的重点就是在赚钱上“打败穆凯什”,而不是有效地管理他的资金和业务。也许他运气不太好,但也不是只凭运气。而是勤奋而明智的工作……

Mukesh Ambani helped Anil Ambani by buying his assets when probably there were no buyers. It was not a gift or loan

穆凯什•安巴尼帮助安尼尔•安巴尼赎回了他的资产,当时可能根本就没有买家。这不是礼物也不是贷款。
