Two funds managed by mutual fund house Franklin Templeton acquired 8.49 per cent stake in fashion retailer Pantaloons Fashion & Retail Ltd, at Rs 165 a piece totaling to over Rs 143 crore.

Of the 7,879,902 equity shares, 4,784,239 shares were acquired by Franklin India High Growth Companies Fund and the rest 3,095,663 by Franklin India Prima Fund.

The fashion retailer also was able to reduce net loss to Rs 63.78 crore in the same quarter as against net loss of Rs 70.75 crore in the fourth quarter of its prior fiscal. (AR)
