After record fundraising and debt prepayments, Reliance Industries now has a strong balance sheet with high liquidity that will support growth plans for its three hyper-growth engines – telecom arm Jio, retail and oil-to-chemicals business, firm’s Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani said.
In the company’s latest annual report released on Wednesday, he said the company sold minority stakes in Jio Platforms – the unit that houses its telecom and digital business – and retail arm for almost ₹ 2 lakh crore, 49 % in fuel retailing venture for ₹ 7,629 crore and raised another ₹ 53,124 crore through the rights issue.
"We now have a strong balance sheet with high liquidity that will support growth plans for our three hyper-growth engines Jio, Retail, and O2C," he said.
During 2020-21, Reliance completed India’s largest-ever rights issue of ₹ 53,124 crore (oversubscribed by 1.59 times), which was also the largest in the world by a non-financial institution in the last 10 years.
