The current acquisition represents 15.63 per cent of the post-preferential issue paid-up equity share capital of Just Dial, according to a regulatory filing by Reliance Industries to the stock exchanges today.

Pursuant to the preferential issue, Just Dial allotted 2.12 crore equity shares of Rs 10 each at a price of Rs 1,022.25 per equity share (including a premium of Rs 1,012.25 per equity share) – representing 25.35 per cent of the post-preferential issue paid-up share capital to Reliance Retail. 

It was reported earlier that with the acquisition, Mr VSS Mani will continue to lead Just Dial as its managing director and chief executive officer (CEO). The capital infused by Reliance will leverage Just Dial’s existing database of about 30.4 million listings and its existing consumer traffic of around 129.1 million quarterly unique users.

On Thursday, September 2, shares of Reliance Industries settled 1.05 per cent higher at Rs 2,293.65 apiece on the BSE.
