Bhushan Steel Ltd to sell and lease back oxygen plant


India’s largest manufacturer of auto-grade steel, Bhushan Steel Limited, has reportedly decided to sell and lease back its oxygen plant.

It is understood that the sale and lease was because the company has been constantly facing cash flow stress and this will ease the liquidity for the company.
