Diversified natural resource company Vedanta’s Anil Agarwal is open to selling stake in Cairn India to make it valuable for investors. Agarwal said that the company is interested in buying stake in BPCL.
Agarwal said: “If any foreign company bids for BPCL, I welcome it. We will also do our due diligence and we will see if it is at right price for our shareholders, we will definitely be interested.”
However, the price of BPCL has jumped by 45 percent which is very high, he added. For a company which can make maximum $1 billion, having a market cap of $15 billion, looks very high, according to him.
