British Gas to sell 10% stake in Mahanagar Gas via block deal today

Updated : August 20, 2019 08:44 AM IST

British Gas plans to sell its 10 percent stake in Mahanagar Gas Ltd (MGL) on Tuesday, sources told CNBC-TV18.

British Gas holds 32 percent stake in MGL and the company has been reducing its stake in MGL over a period of time.

This is the last tranche of the sale and the floor price is set at Rs 733 per share, a near 7 percent discount to Monday’s closing price.

Whenever a block deal happens at a discount,  a bit of a short-covering is seen which may be the case in MGL too.

Investors should keep a close watch at the downside on the back of the discount.
