After this investment, the Jio platform has so far raised Rs. 87, 655.35 crore from six companies, such as Facebook, Silver Lake, General Atlantic, Vista Equity Partner, KKR, and Mubadala. The company has raised this much amount only in six weeks.

"The Abu Dhabi-based sovereign investor will invest Rs. 9,093.60 crore in Jio Platforms at an equity value of Rs. 4.91 lakh crore and an enterprise value of Rs. 5.16 lakh crore. Mubadala's investment will translate into a 1.85 percent equity stake in Jio Platforms on a fully diluted basis," Reliance Jio said while announcing the deal.

But, the proposed transaction needs to go through approvals. For the unaware, Reliance Jio is a subsidiary of Reliance Industries. The company is currently providing its services to more than 388 million customers in India. Besides, Jio has become a favourite platform for all global companies as they are investing and buying a stake.
