As far as the Future group is concerned, the only big challenge is immediate liquidity. If the final order is in favour of Amazon, then ideally they would have to make a counter offer to make this battle worth the while. For Future group, the impact may be limited. If SIAC rules in their favour, the deal with RIL goes through. If there is an adverse order, the onus is on Amazon to make a good bid after having forced the deal with RIL to be put on hold.

Actually, there are bigger stakes for RIL and Amazon. Amazon has been trying to delay Reliance’s retail plans so it can get a heads-up in online retail. Amazon also has to make a good counter offer, if it stalls the deal. Reliance was counting on the 1,700 stores of Future group to spruce up its retail presence through brick and mortar. If that does not happen, its efforts over the last 1 year may go waste. Both Amazon and RIL need a Plan-B in place.
