In an endeavour to maximize shareholder value, Vakrangee Limited today announced the demerger of both the businesses (Vakrangee Kendra Business as well as E-Governance & IT/ITES Business), each of which require greater attention and possess growth potential, due to which the Company has decided for the segregation of the business.

As on June 19, 2021 the Board of Directors of Vakrangee Limited had approved Demerger of its digital Division. However, The Board of Directors have now after due deliberations and detailed discussions, taking into consideration the best interest of all its stakeholders, have finally decided to demerge its E-Governance and IT/ITES division.

The E-Governance & IT/ITES Business division requires different skill sets and focused approach towards time bound project execution capabilities as well as dedicated efforts on collection of Debtors, Vendor management and trading of IT equipment's.

We have been relentless in building the organization that is future ready and our efforts have been unwavering during this transformational journey.
The Demerger will enable both the Companies to enhance business operations by streamlining operations, more efficient management control and outlining independent growth strategies. Enable dedicated management focus, resources and skill set allocation to each business, which will in turn accelerate growth and unlock value for the shareholders.
The Core business of Vakrangee Limited (Physical outlets as well as Digital Mobile super app platform) will get a proper representation as it is an Asset Light franchisee based model with High return on capital and Positive Free cash flows. This would lead to significant improvement in financials and return ratios for the core business."
