Visa Steel on Tuesday received shareholder approval for transfer of the company’s special steels business to its wholly owned subsidiary Visa Special Steel Ltd. However, the arrangement is subject to approval of the Odisha High Court, the company said.

The company now proposes to change the current GDR ratio of 1:2 to 1:20 (i.e., each DR would be equivalent to 20 underlying equity shares). Consequently, the number of DRs will stand reduced from 29.75 lakh to 2.975 lakh for 59.50 lakh shares. The change in ratio will be effective from Thursday.

A letter from the Editor

Dear Readers,

The coronavirus crisis has changed the world completely in the last few months. All of us have been locked into our homes, economic activity has come to a near standstill. Everyone has been impacted.

Including your favourite business and financial newspaper. Our printing and distribution chains have been severely disrupted across the country, leaving readers without access to newspapers. Newspaper delivery agents have also been unable to service their customers because of multiple restrictions.
