    NEW DELHI: Reliance Industries’ Rs 53,124 crore rights issue, which closed on Wednesday, received a robust response from shareholders as the issue got subscribed 1.59 times.

    The allotment of equity shares will happen on June 10. The rights shares are expected to be listed on the exchanges on June 12 under separate ISIN. The public portion of the rights got subscribed 1.22 times.

    Commenting on the success of the rights issue, Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director, Reliance Industries, said, “The success of RIL’s rights Issue, seen in the context of the prolonged nationwide lockdown necessitated by the Covid-19 pandemic, is also a vote of confidence, by both domestic investors, foreign investors and small retail shareholders, in the intrinsic strength of the Indian economy.”

    “I have no doubt that the Indian economy will bounce back to follow a high-growth trajectory in the time to come, and make India a leading digital nation in the world,” he added.

    The issue, which opened for subscription on May 20, is the biggest in the world by a non-financial issuer in the last 10 years, according to Dealogic.

    Billionaire Mukesh Ambani's firm had on April 30 announced fundraising of Rs 53,125 crore by way of a 1:15 rights issue -- India's biggest and the first such issue by the firm in nearly three decades.

    One share will be offered for every 15 shares held at Rs 1,257, a 14 per cent discount to the closing price for April 30.

    Earlier in the day, shares of the company closed 0.41 per cent higher at Rs 1,542. On the other hand, the benchmark BSE Sensex closed 0.84 per cent up at 34.109.

    Post allotment there will be correction in share price as profit booking will start by those who have bought RIL RE. Also it will be very difficult for RIL to maintain a 1250 share prince in log run, its dividend yield will come down for next 2 years and it will be difficult to maintain a High PEx and PBVx considering the dilution by rights issue and new verticals kicking in full profit will take 2 years atleast. I see the price correcting to 800 to 1000 for short time.

    Promoters increasing stake along shareholders at this rate is a benchmark for the stock and if finally they clear all debts in all their projects than that’s a very big thing and I feel Jio can be listed at USA market where tech can get good valuations.Real big business is retail and next action to list it must be taken up .
