Abstract:Consumer packaged goods giant Unilever PLC launched an open offer to buy back shares of its Indian subsidiary HUL and increase its stake in the subsidiary to 75% from 52.48%. The move signaled the increasing focus of global companies on emerging markets. Though Unilever PLC ruled out the possibility of delisting HUL, market analysts pointed out that MNCs raising their stakes in their subsidiaries could be the first step in delisting the companies in emerging markets.
