Dear Mr. Ashwani Kumar Aggarwal,

Thank you very much for your valuable advice.

What should be the fair value of UTV Software Communications Ltd. equity share after the proposed merger of Walt Disney & Company with 21st Century Fox ?

I would really appreciate if you can through some focus on it.
Warm regards,

Very difficult to put a " fair price " on it.No trading in the Delisted market So many years the Exit price was Rs. 1100/- .After that , in rationalisation process losses were shown. Now, these exciting new developments. Let us wait and watch. Regards

Thanks for your reply Mr. Ashwani Aggarwal,

This is an EXTREMELY RARE share !

The promoter, The Walt Disney Company (Southeast Asia) Pte. Ltd. now holds 99.9821 % share in UTV Software communications ltd. Rest all shares are held by general public which is just 0.0179 % !!! There are only 1,57,000 equity share floating in the market, which is held by perhaps just few hundred shareholders.

In the days to come, it would be truely a jackpot for these lucky shareholders who hold it patiently with tremendeous faith in company's bright future & its long term growth potential.

Wish you all the best guys who are holding this rare diamond in their portfolio.
