The Board announced a split in the face value of the share. The Board has recommended to the shareholders a share split from the present Rs. 10/- per share to Rs. 2/- per share and thereby reducing the face value of the share. This will go a long way in enhancing the liquidity of the shares.

While making the announcements in Mumbai, Ashok Goel, Vice Chairman & Managing Director said, “The low liquidity of our shares was always a concern, which we believe will be resolved with this step.“ Regarding special dividend, he added, “Giving value to our shareholders is of paramount importance to us”.
