With everyone clamoring to own a piece of Jio Platforms Ltd., owner of India’s largest mobile operator, Jio’s parent company may be eyeing an overseas listing.
In the next one-to-two years leading up to the IPO, Jio will significantly ramp up its retail business through investments in artificial intelligence, internet of things and technology acquisitions similar to the ones it has already carried out, Sanchit Vir Gogia, CEO and founder of Greyhound Research said.
With this strategy, coupled with the company’s growing telco business, Reliance’s Jio Platforms will be a “mature business,” as Alibaba’s was, by the time it lists overseas, Gogia said. He estimated Jio’s valuation to be in the range of US$150 billion to US$200 billion at the time of listing.
