The government has fixed a floor price of R510 for diluting a 10% stake in Oil India (OIL) through the offer for sale (OFS) route. The sale is expected to fetch around R3,066 crore. The floor price, which was disclosed to the stock exchanges after market hours, is at a discount of 5.38% when compared to Thursday's closing price. On BSE, the shares gained 2.29% or R12.05 to close at R539.20. Since the beginning of December, the scrip has risen over 17%. The Sensex has gained nearly 4% in the same period. The stake sale has been scheduled on February 1 when the government will auction 6.01 crore shares (10%) in the oil & gas exploration, development and production (EPD) company. With the scheduled sale, the government's stake would come down to 68.43% from the current 78.43%. The sale will help the government move closer to its divestment target of R30,000 crore for the current financial year (FY13).
