25 June 2020 In a Special Resolution by postal ballot, 93.3% of all shareholders and 84.3% of public shareholders have approved to delist the shares of Vedanta (VEDL). As ensuing steps, VEDL would announce a reverse book building process for shareholders to tender the shares, resulting in the discovery of the final exit offer price. Earlier, on 12 May, the promoter group (led by Vedanta Resources Plc) had shared an Indicative Offer Price (IOP) of INR87.5/share. Price discovery is thus likely to happen at a higher level.

Among the public shareholders, 84.3% of votes were in favor of the resolution, against the statutory requirement of 66.
