Shares of Info Edge went up today after the company, which owns online job portal Naukri, said last week that it will acquire Highorbit Careers - that operates job portals iimjobs.com and hirist.com - for cash consideration of Rs 80.82 crore.

The stock gained nearly 3% to Rs 2,515 on the NSE. Volumes traded in the  counter were to the tune of 1.10 lakh shares as at 1 pm.

“We have agreed to acquire 100 per cent share capital on a fully diluted basis. Post the completion of the acquisition, iimjobs will become wholly-owned subsidiary of the company,” Info Edge said in a BSE filing last week
