On 14th April, The Mint published a report, titled 'Piramal, Sunteck close to purchasing Mafatlal land'. Quoting unnamed sources, the newspaper said Piramal Realty and Sunteck Realty are close to signing a deal to buy a seven-acre plot from Mafatlal Industries for Rs750 crore.
Reacting to the news report, the stock price of Mafatlal Industries shot up by more than 8% to Rs217.65 on 15th April. But the Sunteck Reality stock price was down by 1% to Rs344.30 from Rs347.20 on 13th April.
The Mint quoted a Sunteck official as saying, "We're not the only one and we have a partner who is leading it," while a senior official of Piramal Realty said, "We look at a lot of deals and it will be 'speculative' to comment on it until it is closed."
However, in response to a query from the bourses, both Sunteck and Piramal have said that they are not buying land from Mafatlal. On the other hand, Mafatlal said it was at an advanced stage of negotiations with some prospective purchasers. However, 'no deal has been signed as yet.'
Despite both reported buyers denying any participation in the land deal, the bourse appears to be satisfied with the clarifications, rather than investigate and dig out the real reasons for the dissemination of speculative information.
