Hero MotoCorp has announced it has increased its stake in electric two-wheeler maker Ather Energy to nearly 40 per cent. The company has infused an additional 140 crore into Ather Energy and said that it’s buying shares of the company from another investor, taking its equity stake from 36.7 per cent to 39.7 per cent. The acquisition will be complete by January 31, 2024, it said in a regulatory filing.

Hero did not reveal the identity of the existing investors from whom the company bought the shares. That said, Ather Energy counts Tiger Global, GIC, Innoven Capital, Sachin Bansal and others among its investors. This decision follows a prior investment in September 2023, when Ather Energy secured 900 crore from Hero MotoCorp and GIC through a rights issue. At the time, Ather said that it would be utilising the investment towards new product development and expansion of its charging and retail network.
