Mubadala will invest AED 3.1 billion in Reliance Retail Ventures Limited


October 4, 2020 | By RetailME Bureau

Abu Dhabi-based sovereign investor Mubadala will invest AED 3.1 billion in Reliance Retail Ventures Limited, a subsidiary of India’s business conglomerate Reliance Industries Limited (Reliance Industries).

The investment values Reliance Retail at a pre-money equity value of ₹ 4.285 lakh crore. Mubadala’s investment will translate into a 1.40% equity stake in RRVL on a fully diluted basis. The transaction is, however, subject to regulatory and other customary approvals.

This marks the second significant investment by Mubadala in a Reliance Industries subsidiary after the $1.2 billion investment in Jio Platforms announced earlier this year. Reliance Retail’s vision is to galvanise the Indian retail sector through an inclusive strategy that empowers millions of farmers and micro, small and medium enterprises. Working closely with global and domestic companies as a preferred partner, it aims to deliver immense benefits to Indian society, while protecting and generating employment for millions of Indians.

Reliance Retail, through its new commerce strategy, has started a transformational digitalisation of small and unorganised merchants and is committed to expanding the network numbering over 20 million businesses, giving them access to technology tools and efficient supply chain infrastructure that deliver superior value to their customers.

“I am happy to welcome Mubadala as a valued investor in Reliance Retail Ventures. We value the partnership with a knowledge-rich organisation like Mubadala and acknowledge their confidence in our mission to strengthen the core of India’s retail sector – the millions of small retailers, merchants and shopkeepers – through the power of technology. Mubadala’s investment and guidance will be invaluable support in this journey,” said Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries.

As Mubadala will invest AED 3.1 billion in Reliance Retail Ventures Limited, Khaldoon Al Mubarak, managing director and group CEO, Mubadala Investment Company, added, “We are pleased to deepen our relationship with Reliance Industries through this investment in Reliance Retail Ventures. Their vision is the inclusive transformation of India’s consumer economy through the power of digitization, creating opportunities and market access for millions of small businesses across the country, and we are committed to supporting the company’s continuing development.”
