Shares of Route Mobile witnessed an 8.5% decline as its promoters announced their decision to sell their entire 57.56% stake to the Proximus Group.

The acquisition, made through Proximus Opal, involved an initial cash consideration of Rs 5,922.4 crore (EUR 643 million) at a price of Rs 1,626.40 per share.

Additionally, Proximus Opal will make an open offer to acquire 26% of the increased voting share capital from public shareholders for Rs 2,675 crore at Rs 1,626.4 per share.

“The agreement consists of the acquisition by Proximus Opal of a controlling stake in Route Mobile from the founding shareholders of the company, followed by a reinvestment by some of the founding Route Mobile shareholders into Proximus Opal,” the stock exchange filing added.
