Interglobe Enterprises Private Ltd, led by Rahul Bhatia, is set to sell stake worth $394 million in Interglobe Aviation, the parent company of Indigo Airlines, through a block deal, Moneycontrol reported citing multiple sources, putting the focus on its share price.

The Interglobe Aviation share price was trading in red, down 3.31 per cent at 4411.50 on June 11, at 9:45 am, on BSE. The company enjoys a market capitalisation of 1,76,105.16 crore as BSE.

The sale's floor price is set at 4,266 per share, a 6.5 per cent discount from Interglobe Aviation's closing price of 4,562.55 on June 10. Citi is acting as the investment banker for this deal, which includes a 365-day lock-up period for the seller, the report added.

This is the first time in many years that Bhatia is looking to unlock value and realize returns by offloading approximately 2 per cent of his stake. As of now, Interglobe Enterprises holds a 37.75 per cent stake in Interglobe Aviation, as per the report.

"The deal has been launched, and Bhatia is looking to offload around 2 per cent stake. This is the first time in many years that he is looking to unlock value and pocket some returns," said one of the sources, as quoted by Moneycontrol.

Furthermore, Rahul Bhatia's business portfolio extends beyond Interglobe Aviation, encompassing investments in the hotel and artificial intelligence sectors, which might require further funding.
