No deal yet with MT Educare: Zee Learn

MUMBAI: After reports of Zee Learn’s acquisition of MT Educare, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) sought a clarification from Zee regarding the purchase. The company replied stating that as part of its continuing business strategy, it constantly sought potential opportunities in various capacities to expand its business. "The company currently has not finalised any deal with MT Educare Limited," said its response to the BSE.

According to media reports, Zee Learn is looking to buy a controlling stake in MT Educare that runs Mahesh Tutorials, a popular coaching-class network in Mumbai. The company initially plans to buy the entire promoter share of 42.78 per cent and later make an open offer for another 20 per cent stake. Institutions and public shareholders own the remaining 57.22 per cent.

MT Educare, which went public in 2012, is a leading education services company that prepares students for competitive examinations. It had a market capitalisation of Rs 324 crore by end of trade on Friday.

Ninety three per cent of MT’s revenue comes from its coaching classes and the rest from Robomate+ app, which provides recorded video lectures.

Zee Learn has a pre-school network of 1700 Kidzees in Asia as well as 115 Mount Litera Zee Schools at the end of financial year 2016-17. It also runs film and TV and animation courses.
