Reliance has called off an official deal to acquire Future Retail but I think they will keep acquiring stores for failure of lease payments

i think it is preplanned move by ril. 

now reliance will acquire future through ibc @  much lesser price and Amazon can’t able to object to this sale in ibc.

They mainly wanted the real estate. That is already 80% achieved.

If the deal is cancelled then they will have to vacate that

No. They made sidedeals with the landlords and tookover the property separately. Future Retail was just the tenant.

…reliance philosophy…

…select any sector to trade and destroy the biggest player….by hook or by crook…

…In this fiasco….Future group , amazon and Reliance….all lied and all tried to get the biggest profit..

…in the end….amazon got nothing but hatred from jingoistic nationalists.

..future group never had any future….they deserve it all…

..Mota bhai got thousands of future group spaces with rent agreements …arranged contracts with vendors….contractual labour etc….so in short clear winner….

…hope next company to sit in the lap of reliance plays his card well or else…..swaha….

Possible.

RIL first fought with AZ so AZ cant get a foothold in Indian retail space. 

Then RIL structured the deal in a way that smoked secured creditors. That’s why they have voted against it.

RIL has done it before. Their deal with RCOM fell through in 2017 because once again secured lenders were to be killed.

For now, bankruptcy is reasonably certain for Future.

Point is, AZ can still back an Indian co and proxy bid using them to acquire Future post-bankruptcy, we’ll see.

In ibc winning bid going to be less than 24000 crore for sure.
