Here are the stocks to watch in trade today:
Dish TV India: The company’s board has agreed that the EGM cannot be called as sought by Yes Bank. The board has also instructed the management to send a detailed response to the bank. “Yes Bank being a banking company and it's shareholding in the company being a consequence of invocation of pledges, there are certain embargos under the provisions of the Banking Regulation Act, 1949 read with SEBI Regulations, 2011, because of which the said resolutions cannot be placed before the shareholders.”
Reliance Industries: Invesco had assisted the company in arranging discussions with Zee Entertainment Enterprises MD Punit Goenka between February and March this year. The company made ‘broad proposal’ for merger of media operations with Zee at fair valuations. Proposal included continuation of Goenka as MD and issue of ESOPs to management. Goenka and Invesco had differences on requirement of founding family increasing stake. Consequently, the company decided not to proceed further, it said.
Zee Entertainment Enterprises: Board filed response to Invesco's open letter to shareholders and clarified deal with Sony. Invesco should stop publishing "half truths" about proposed Sony deal. Non compete fee to Zee promoters in Sony deal is a secondary transfer and will not be dilutive to public shareholders. Quantum of promoter shareholding in Sony deal is less than in Reliance deal proposed by Invesco. Invesco has cast unsubstantiated aspersions on company and board. Invesco's actions are motivated by concerns entirely extraneous to any corporate governance issue.
Westlife Development: The company will add 150-200 stores and invest Rs 800-1,000 crore across the business over the next 3-4 years. All these initiatives are expected to create 6,000-8,000 direct and indirect jobs in the industry.
UltraTech Cement: The company commissioned 1.2 mtpa cement capacity in October 2021, which will help the company to service the fast-growing cement demand in the Eastern markets. The additional capacity will cost company Rs 400 crore.
KEC International: The company has completed the acquisition of Spur Infrastructure and hence it is now a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.
PTC India: The company’s Chairman and Managing Director, Deepak Amitabh, has resigned from the post w.e.f. November 5, 2021.
