Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], June 12 (ANI): Following an overwhelming response for the mega rights issue of Mukesh Ambani-owned Reliance Industries, the partly paid-up rights shares are set to debut on stock exchanges on June 15.
The biggest ever Rs 53,124 crore rights issue was subscribed 1.59 times and received bids worth Rs 84,000 crore on June 3.
Reliance said the rights issue saw a huge investor interest, including from lakhs of small investors and thousands of institutional investors, both Indian and foreign.
In 2019, Ambani said in the Reliance’s annual general meeting that the company will be net zero debt by March 2021. The company is on course to achieve its target ahead of the deadline.
“In spite of the COVID-19 crisis and the lockdowns, the due-diligence by Saudi Aramco for the planned investment in the O2C business is on track as both the parties are committed and actively engaged,” he said recently.
“With a strong visibility to these equity infusions, Reliance is set to achieve net zero debt status ahead of its own aggressive timeline. We believe rights issue was a part of the company’s strategy of deleveraging its balance sheet,” said Ambani. (ANI)
