Through this merger, RIL consolidates a world-class, complex refinery with minimal residual project risk, while complementing RIL's product range. There will be further gains from reduced operating costs arising from synergies of a combined operation.

The merger is expected to reduce the earnings volatility for RPL shareholders and allows them to participate in the full energy value chain of RIL.

The merger will result in RIL:
• Operating two of the world's largest, most complex refineries
• Owning 1.24 million barrels per day (MBPD) of crude processing capacity, the largest refining capacity at any single location in the world
• Emerging as the world's 5th largest producer of Polypropylene

Merger Details:
• Under the terms of the proposed merger, RPL shareholders will receive 1 (one) share of RIL for every 16 (sixteen) RPL shares held by them.
• The appointed date of merger of RPL with RIL is 1st April 2008.
• RIL will cancel its holding in RPL.

Based on the recommended merger ratio, RIL will issue 6.92 crore new equity shares to the existing shareholders of RPL. This will result in a 4.4% increase in equity base from Rs 1,574 crore shares to Rs 1,643 crore. Consequently, the promoter holding in RIL will reduce from 49.0% to 47.0%.
