Adani Tradeline and Universal Trade offered 7,57,13,197 shares and 1,17,86,803 shares, respectively for sale.
The offer for sale is generally done to increase public holding in the company. All companies are mandated to maintain 25 per cent public shareholding. The two promoters had 86.50 per cent stake in the company as on March 31, 2019.
