Vedanta and its bookrunners gave the market a lesson in how to get a deal done in volatile times both through its opportunistic timing and the deal’s execution.

Announcing on May 16, Vedanta began a three-team global roadshow. The company chose a relatively quiet week without a public holiday or much in the way of data announcements in order to avoid damaging exposure to potential market volatility.
