Private Equity Major KKR has become the fifth organization to put resources into Reliance Industries’ Digital auxiliary Jio Platforms. KKR is paying ₹11,400 crores for a 2.32% stake in the endeavor, which likewise houses RIL’s telecom unit. Reliance is following a three-pronged methodology – stake deals in Jio, a rights issue, and new sponsor for the inheritance oil refining business – to become a zero-debt company by December. Jio Platforms has now raised ₹78,700 crores from five financial specialists.
Here’s a list of its recent Jio Platforms Investment announcements in chronological order:
April 22, 2020: Facebook puts $5.7 billion (₹43,600 crore) for a 9.99% stake.

May 22, 2020: Private Equity giant KKR dials Jio Platforms with ₹11,400 crores for a 2.32% stake.
The telecom business of the Mukesh Ambani-promoted Reliance Industries group has announced four deals in less than a month to sell nearly 15% stake to foreign investors. The biggest of its four deals, with Mark Zuckerberg-led Facebook, involves the sale of a 9.99% stake for Rs 43,574 crore.
The other three are with Silver Lake Partners (Rs 5,656 crore for a 1% stake), Vista Equity Partners (Rs 11,367 crore for a 2.3% stake), and General Atlantic (Rs 6,598 crore for a 1.34% stake). Since the announcement of the first deal on April 22, the stock of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) has risen by Rs 183.23, or 15%, on a net basis. It rose from Rs 1,224.93 on April 21 to a closing peak of Rs 1,562.56 on May 11, before shedding some value to close at Rs 1,408.15 on May 19. RIL’s market capitalization has risen by Rs 1.19 trillion, or over 15%, during this period
5th Investment in 4 weeks. Only RIL (Reliance Industries Limited) can pull this off.
Today KKR and Co. Inc. have reported a venture of INR 11,367 Crore in Jio Platforms Limited for 2.32% proportion of shares. With this round, Reliance Industries Limited has raised INR 78,562 Crore (USD 10.5 Bn) for 17.12%.
So the inquiry is, by what means will this venture by KKR be of incentive for Jio Platforms? We really accept this venture will help Jio with KKR’s Platform (speculations) and Performance (skill).
Yet, this additionally brings up a basic issue – for what reason are speculators rushing to JioPlatforms? We had recently analyzed and came to the conclusion that global investors have trust in Jio Platforms’ abilities and capabilities and also assumes that it is a Data, Technology, And Ecosystem Opportunity.
Is this the last arrangement for Jio or would we be able to hope for something else? Premise RIL’s direction, another 2.88% can be stripped and it can bring up in the scope of INR 12,000 – 15,000 Crore.
Miracle how airtel and Vodafone plan to counter this rebellion. It is significant that the two ascents to the occasion and help keep up a level field. Jio is maybe doing what each scale stage startup does with profound pockets – purchases clients till the pockets run dry and individuals begin taking a gander at gainfulness. In any case, imagine a scenario where the business has just 3-4 players and with AGR sort of administrative inconvenience, half of them have crushed spirits.
Amazing – in the eye of the COVID storm – Jio brings $10.3bn up in less than a month from Facebook, KKR, Silver Lake, Vista Equity and General Atlantic – setting: this is currently drawing near to Flipkart’s full procurement cost comprising India’s biggest tech exit until the day.
In any case, I do accept that the reliance on IPO for the not so distant future really may diminish. According to the reports, KKR is relied upon to contribute between $750 million to $1 Billion. On the off chance that all arrangements do experience including the ones expected, for example, KKR and PIF, Jio Platform’s stake in the organization are relied upon to decrease down to 75% (with 15% previously sold in past 4 arrangements). These arrangements combined with RIL’s rights issues may stop the Initial Public Offering for in any event next 5 years as I would see it except if as you referenced that the exchange reports remember IPO commitment for the not so distant future.
