During the previous week, Reliance Retail Ventures or RRVL, announced that it would pay over Rs.5,400 crore to buy 67% stake in Just Dial. This deal will make Reliance the largest shareholder and reduce VSS Mani’s holding in Just Dial to 10.35%.Firstly, Just Dial will make a preferential offer to RRVL followed by VSS Mani and family selling a part of their stake to RRVL. Finally, Reliance Retail will make an open offer to 26% minority shareholders.

That brings me to your second question, what should investors do; exit or hold on? The immediate reaction was cautious, but that is too short a time. Remember, RRVL brings a much better fulfilment ability to Just Dial and that is worth a lot. Just Dial investors can wait for synergies of deal to kick in, which could be value accretive in medium term. In a way, this is the right deal, in the right place and at the right time and Just Dial investors should gain.
