Shares of Welspun Corpwill remain in action on Thursday, as the company is demerging its other businesses into Welspun Enterprises. The record date has been fixed on February 20 to determine the eligible shareholders.

The demerger creates a mirror shareholding across both entities resulting in no equity dilution for any shareholder.

Reliance Broadcast Network delisting

Reliance Broadcast Network will be in focus as the delisting offer was over on Tuesday. The details of the offer will trickle in next week. The company had set the floor price at ₹46.47, lower than the market price. Most of the offer was tendered at ₹59. It remains to be seen whether the company would accept the higher price or back off from delisting due to higher price. It received bids for 19.49 lakh shares against the offer for 20 crore shares. This will make the delisting difficult (according to the data).
