RIL’s Ambitions For Jio Are Broader And Deeper Than What Meets The Eye [Updated on May 22, 2020]

Updated on May 22, 2020 to include analysis on investments from KKR & Co.

The last 4 weeks have been a rather busy one for Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). In a span of 30 days, the company has announced five big investment deals – from Facebook, Silver Lake Partners, Vista Equity Partners, General Atlantic and KKR & Co.. All of these deals are iconic in their own right and further RIL’s ambitions for leadership in the Indian Digital Ecosystem. While a lot has already been written on this topic, we at Greyhound Research believe RIL’s ambitions for Jio are broader and deeper than what meets the eye.

This report by Greyhound Research details the investments by Facebook, Silver Lake Partners, Vista Equity Partners, General Atlantic, KKR & Co. in Jio Platforms, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). The report also highlights Jio’s engagement with Microsoft Corp., impact on Bharti Airtel and 10 points about Jio Platforms worthy of a callout.
