According to a notice filed with CCI, the proposed combination relates to the allotment of 3.96 crore equity warrants of Future Retail to FCL, priced at Rs 505 apiece aggregating to over Rs 2,000 crore.
Each warrant will be convertible into or exchangeable within a period of 18 months from the date of allotment of the equity warrants, for one equity share of a face value of Rs 2 each.
On conversion of the equity warrants, FCL will hold 7.30 per cent in Future Retail.
