The share price of condom manufacturer and supplier Cupid fell 2.63% to Rs 384.55 in early trade on September 11, after hitting a fresh 52-week high of Rs 418.40 earlier in the day.

The Universal-Halwasiya Group and Family have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 41.84% equity capital/voting right from the promoter/promoter group of Cupid Limited, namely Omprakash Garg and Veena Garg, and the management control, subject to regulatory compliance and approval.

As per the June 2023 shareholding pattern, Omprakash and Veena Garg were holding 44.84% stake in the company out of the 45.06% promoter holding.

Universal-Halwasiya Group and Family has made an open offer to acquire an additional 26% of the outstanding equity shares of the Cupid Limited from the public.

Universal-Halwasiya Group and Family has appointed Monarch Networth Capital Limited as the manager to the offer.

Omp Prakash Garg, the current promoter of Cupid, said that he is very optimistic about the company’s future under the new ownership.

“I had a wonderful journey during my time at Cupid. There is the satisfaction of handing on the business that I started and developed over many years of hard work and persistence to businesspeople who will now take it to the next stage of prosperity. Since Cupid Limited will be in the capable hands of the Universal-Halwasiya Group and Family, I am very optimistic about its future,” he said.

The acquisition is likely to be completed by the end of this year.
