Reliance Foray





What First comes to ur mind when u hear the word 'Reliance' ?(now plzzz dont ask for options !)
YES, I am speaking about Brand Reliance. For me, the first thing that strikes is INDIA. Reliance being the largest and the only private sector company from India to strike into Global Fortune 500, has almost become a synonym for India ! for the simple reason that there are hardly any such sectors left where Reliance hasn't step yet. From Food to Footwear, Technology to Telecom, Clothes to Jewelery, Petroleum to Natural Resources, Financial Services to Credit Cards.... their foray is practically into everything. They have conquered at least some part of each space. When it comes to few Verticals like Telecom, Petroleum etc., chunk of the portion is occupied by this Indian Giant.

What prompted me to write this article is the fact that Reliance has recently opened its first Jewelery shop in HYDERABAD !! I thought of listing down all the companies owned by Ambani Bros across all the sectors. I managed to list one & a half dozen of them. I am sure, I must have missed at least a dozen more.

Listed Companies:
  1. INDUSTRIES
  2. ENERGY
  3. POWER
  4. INFRASTRUCTURE
  5. CAPITAL
  6. COMMUNICATIONS
  7. NATURAL RESOURCES
  8. PETROLEUM
  9. ADLABS
Subsidaries/Unlisted Companies:
  • VIMAL
  • TRENDS
  • BIG FM
  • WEBWORLD
  • ZAPAK.COM
  • FOOTWEAR
  • WELLNESS
  • FRESH
  • JEWELERY
Add to these the recently purchased Mumbai IPL cricket team by Sr. Ambani(Mukhesh) !! Papa Dhirubhai Ambani ne har ek ke paas 'Roti,Kapada,Makhaan aur Mobile' hone ka sapna dekha and his dream turned into a reality.....aur Beta Anil Ambani ne har ek ke paas 'Roti,Kapada,Makhaan,Mobile aur Power' hone ka sapna dekh raha hai !! & only time will tell whether he will be able to succeed in this mission.


What's Buzzing ?

Reliance Retail has recently launched its first iSTORE in HYDERABAD !! By this time u must have guessed what this could be. Yeah.... APPLE-RELIANCE tie up, to sell Apple products exclusively in Indian markets. Also heard on the street that Reliance is planning to tie up with major European fashion brands like Vercase ! I am excited !!



What NEXT ?

Come on Ambani Bros, be more ambitious. Here are few more sectors which needs the attention of u guys!!
  • Automobiles
  • Agriculture
  • Capital Goods
  • Electronics
  • Fertilizers
  • Aerospace
  • Media
  • Travel & Logistics
I am sure u'll give a good run for the money of ur rivals....If u dont want to start from the scratch then u guys can always adopt the inorganic way of expanding the business(as u did in the case of ADLABS!!). Start-up or Buy/Acquire/Merge with an existing ones.... do something or the other.

U can always avail my help in doing so !!
:-) Cheers :-)
