Sebi, on Wednesday, barred Kishore Biyani and certain other promoters of FRL from the securities market for one year for indulging in insider trading in the shares of the company.
Apart from Kishore Biyani, who was the CMD and promoter of Future Retail Ltd (FRL), others facing ban are Future Corporate Resources Pvt Ltd, Anil Biyani and FCRL Employee Welfare Trust.
FRL said that Sebi’s one-year ban on its chairperson Kishore Biyani and some other promoters from the securities market will have “no impact” on the Rs 24,713 crore-deal with Reliance.
“… order will have no impact on the ongoing Scheme of Arrangement of the company. We understand that the relevant parties propose to challenge this order in exercise of their statutory right to appeal,” FRL said on Wednesday.
