ZEEL shares slightly off lows on reports of promoters meeting SEBI##ZEEL shares slightly off lows on reports of promoters meeting SEBI

Shares of Zee Entertainment Enterprises were slightly off lows as reports of the company's promoter meeting the regulator triggered hope that there could be some development related to the stake sale. Zee Entertainment's promoter Subhash Chandra likely met the regulator on Tuesday to share the status of the stake sale deal ahead of its deadline today, a CNBC-TV18 report said. The promoters of Zee Entertainment are expected to pare stake in the company by today and use proceeds to meet debt obligations. This, in turn, is expected to ease the redemption pressure on the company's shares, which were offered as collateral by the promoters against some non-convertible debentures issued by promoter entities. Shares of the company were 4.8 percent lower at Rs 362.70.
