Greaves Electric Mobility was recently in the news when Abdul Latif Jameel, an independent, family-owned, diversified global investor and operator, announced its commitment to invest $220 million (Rs 1700 crores) in the company. Jameel will initially invest $150 million (Rs 1,160 crores) for a 35.8 percent fully diluted stake making it the second-largest shareholder in Greaves Electric Mobility.
