Public Investment Fund invests ₹ 9,555 crores ($1.3 billion) in Reliance Retail Ventures Limited

It seems no stopping to the investment spree for Reliance Retail Ventures Limited as the Ambani backed company gets another major investment of ₹ 9,555 crores ($1.3 billion). This marks the company’s fifth investment after getting backed by major investors like Silver Lake, KKR & Co. Inc, General Atlantic, and Mubadala.

This investment values RRVL at a pre-money equity value of ₹ 4.587 lakh crore (approximately $62.4 billion). This investment will further strengthen PIF’s presence in India’s dynamic economy and promising retail market segment. The investment in RRVL follows PIF’s earlier acquisition of a 2.32% stake in Jio Platforms, the digital services subsidiary of Reliance Industries.

  • The Public Investment Fund (“PIF”) has signed definitive documentation to acquire a 2.04% equity stake in Reliance Retail Ventures Limited (“RRVL”)
  • The investment is in line with PIF’s strategy and mandate to invest globally in innovative and transformative businesses that generate long-term commercial returns
  • RRVL, through its subsidiary, is market-leading in the Indian organized physical retail market and is revolutionizing India’s entire retail sector by further integrating the Indian retail markets through its ‘New Commerce’ strategy

The transaction is in line with PIF’s strategy as a leading global investor with a proven
track record of investing in innovative and transformative companies globally and develop strong partnerships with leading groups in their respective markets. India’s retail sector is one of the largest in the world and accounts for over 10% of its gross domestic product (GDP) which presents meaningful growth potential.

Mr. Mukesh Ambani, Chairman and Managing Director of Reliance Industries, said:
“We at Reliance have a long-standing relationship with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. PIF is at the forefront of the economic transformation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I welcome PIF as a valued partner in Reliance Retail and look forward to their sustained support and guidance as we continue our ambitious journey to transform India’s retail sector for enriching the lives of 1.3 billion Indians and millions of small merchants.”

His Excellency Yasir Al-Rumayyan, Governor of PIF, said: “We are pleased to be
furthering our trusted partnership with Reliance Industries, the leading player in some of India’s most exciting sectors. This transaction demonstrates PIF’s commitment to
investing and partnering for the long-term with innovative businesses around the world that lead and transform their sectors.”

“This investment further demonstrates PIF’s commitment to generating returns for the Saudi people and driving the economic diversification of Saudi Arabia.”

Reliance Retail Limited, a subsidiary of RRVL, operates India’s largest, fast-growing retail business serving close to 640 million footfalls at its ~12,000 stores across the country. Reliance Retail’s vision is to galvanize the Indian retail sector through its new commerce strategy, serving millions of customers by empowering millions of micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).
