“Raymond got ex-dated today for its demerger action in its lifestyle business. The demerged Lifestyle business of Raymond was separated and would be listed separately on stock exchanges by the end of August or early September 2024. As per the spin off (4:5 share swap ratio). We believe this move is aimed to unlock greater value for investors and focused business plans for each segment. As per the demerger assumption post demerger all businesses are expected to be net debt free. As a long term investor such spin off corporate restructuring is a part of unlocking shareholders value and we continue to remain positive on the corporate action,” said Prashanth Tapse, Research Analyst, Senior Vice President of Research at Mehta Equities.
