Offer for Sale vs the Auction Route vs Promoters

Currencies strengthen against the rupee intra day despite expected range with RBI actions not making reform grade impact to rupee baiters

Offer for Sale is a possible route for promoters esp targeting those with more than 75% holding but also competes now with direct auctions Thoise choosing the OFS / IPP route can now however commit such sales every 2 weeks within the colling period of 12 weeks

Any disclosure of a minimum price or floor price for the offer for sale would have to be made on the day before the offer, after close of business hours.(DNA – now under the Zee banner 🙂
