Mphasis stock falls after block deal

Global investment management firm Blackstone has likely offloaded a 15% stake in IT services and consulting company Mphasis on Monday. The transaction, valued at over Rs 7,000 crore, led to a decline in Mphasis’s share price, bringing it down to a low of Rs 2,352.60 on the National Stock Exchange (NSE). This significant movement in the market marks the second-largest block deal of the year. The largest was British American Tobacco’s divestment of a 3.5% stake in ITC, which raised nearly Rs 17,000 crore. BlackStone’s substantial sale underscores the volatility and dynamic shifts within the investment landscape.
