MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian construction company Ashoka Buildcon has raised 5 billion rupees ($80.3 million) from a share sale to institutional investors, two sources directly involved in the deal told Reuters.


Demand for the shares hit 6.5 billion rupees, with investors including Singapore-based fund GMO, ICICI Prudential and Morgan Stanley, the sources added.


The share sale was launched at an indicative price of 175.80 rupees per share, a discount of about 9 percent to Monday's closing price of 193.15 rupees a shares on the National Stock Exchange of India, a term sheet seen by Reuters shows.


Axis Bank, ICICI Securities, IDFC Securities and Macquarie Capital were the managers of the issue.


India's stock market has seen a number of share sales from small companies, looking to pay debt and expand as the economy recovers.
