The Board of Minda Corporation at its meeting held on 02 June 2023 has considered and approved the proposal of raising funds by way of further issuance of securities through public and/or private offerings including preferential issue, qualified institutions placement, further public offer or any of the permissible modes (in one or more tranches), for an aggregate amount not exceeding Rs 600 cr. . In February this year (2023), Minda Corporation acquired Pricol shares via the open market, at an average price of Rs 209 per share aggregating to Rs 400 cr, sparking speculation of a hostile takeover. According to the statement provided by the company, the acquisition was merely a financial investment. Minda Corporation has sought to increase its stake in Pricol to 24.5 percent after purchasing a 15.7 percent stake in February. Pricol Ltd filed a preliminary objection against Minda Corporation's application to the Competition Commission of India (CCI) in May to increase its stake in Pricol.
