Further, it will have a secondary purchase for approximately Rs 11.5 crore of 7,423 equity shares of Rs 10 each at a premium of Rs 15,481.65 per equity share, the filing added.

On the reasons for the acquisition, M&M said, “Carnot is expected to support the company’s strategy by developing information technology solutions for its products, customers and businesses.”

The transaction is expected to be completed by around March 31, 2022 and Carnot will become a subsidiary of M&M, the filing said.
