Latest SPAC News: Byju skips payment on dollar loan and HNR affirms intent to purchase equity interests of Pogo Resources


High-Flying Indian Startup Byju’s Skips Payment on Dollar Loan

One of India’s best-known startups has skipped payment on a dollar loan, escalating a conflict with lenders that underscores the company’s mounting distress.

Byju’s, an education-technology company that provides services to more than 150 million students around the world, didn’t pay $40 million in interest due Monday on a $1.2 billion loan. The firm, led by former teacher Byju Raveendran, said in a statement that it has elected not to make further payments on the so-called term loan B and that it filed a complaint concerning the facility to the New York Supreme Court.

Byju’s had reached a valuation of $22 billion and had considered merging with a special-purpose acquisition company to go public last year.
