New Delhi: Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) on Monday became the first Indian firm to hit a market valuation of $150 billion during the day.
In the morning trade, the company's market valuation jumped Rs 28,248.97 crore to Rs 11,43,667 crore ($150 billion) on the BSE. However, it failed to continue the momentum and at the close of the trade, the company's market valuation remained at Rs 11,07,620.56 crore ($145.68 billion).
The heavyweight stock surged 2.53 per cent to a record high of Rs 1,804.10 during the day on the BSE. However, fag-end selling emerged at the counter and it declined 0.70 per cent to close at Rs 1,747.20. On the National Stock Exchange (NSE) also, it erased all early gains and closed at Rs 1,752.50, 0.39 per cent lower after rising 2.54 per cent to an all-time high of Rs 1,804.20 during the day.
RIL, the country's most-valued firm, on Friday became the first Indian company to cross the Rs 11-lakh crore market valuation mark. Its market valuation crossed Rs 11 lakh crore in the previous session as its share price rallied over 6 per cent after its Chairman Mukesh Ambani announced that the oil-to-telecom conglomerate has become net debt-free.
Ambani announced that RIL has become net debt-free after raising a record Rs 1.69 lakh crore from global investors and a rights issue in under two months.
