This investment values Reliance Retail at a pre-money equity value of Rs 4.285 lakh crore. TPG’s investment will translate into a 0.41 percent equity stake in RRVL on a fully diluted basis. This marks the second investment by TPG in a subsidiary of Reliance Industries, following a Rs 4,546 crore investment in Jio Platforms announced earlier this year. This is the second investment announced in half an hour by Reliance Retail Ventures around midnight, the earlier one being by GIC of Singapore.
