Benzinga - Shares of L&T Finance were climbing on Thursday amid reports that a major private equity player was looking to sell its entire stake in the non-banking financial company.

What Happened: Bain Capital is preparing to completely exit its investment in L&T Finance by selling its remaining stake through a block deal, Moneycontrol reported, citing sources.

The sources added that several entities associated with Bain Capital, holding around 3.54% stake in L&T Finance, are poised to dilute their holdings through this transaction. As of June 1, based on L&T Finance’s market capitalisation, this stake is valued at around ₹1,500 crore.
