As of December 31, 2014, GlaxoSmithKline Plc, the London-listed parent of GSK Pharma holds 75% stake in the Indian company. In March last year, the promoter had increased their stake in the company to 75% from 50.67% through open offer.

Capital market watchdog Sebi on Thursday cleared relaxed regulations for delisting offers.

To make the delisting process more easier, Sebi said the requirement of mandatorily buying minimum 25% shares of public shareholders would be relaxed. The relaxation would be done only if the acquirer and the concerned merchant banker are able to “demonstrate that they have contacted all the public shareholders, about the offer,” the PTI report suggests.
