Renewable energy company ACME Solar Holdings Ltd has hired two investment banks as the company looks to start work on its proposed infrastructure investment trust (InvIT) amid a prolonged delay in a planned initial public offering (IPO), said two people aware of the development. InvITs are trusts that manage income-generating infrastructure assets, typically offering investors regular yield and a liquid method of investing in infrastructure projects.
