Tata Steel had 39.74% stake before the start of the offer, the steel maker said in a filing to the BSE today.

On July 15, Tata Steel had said that total funds required for implementation of the offer (assuming full acceptance) would be Rs 65.02 crore.

Tata Steel had earlier said that it has no plans to merge Tata Sponge Iron with itself, at the moment. Tata Sponge Iron has manufacturing facility at Bilaipada in Odisha.

Tata Sponge Iron was initially set up as a joint venture company between Tata Steel and the Industrial Promotion and Investment Corporation of Orissa Ltd (IPICOL). However, in 1991, Tata Steel bought out IPICOL's stake and made it an associate company.

Tata Sponge Iron's total production capacity currently stands at 3.9 lakh tonnes per annum. It has 26 MW power generation capacity, which is sufficient to meet its energy need.
