While IHH Healthcare Berhad increased its offer to directly invest in Fortis Healthcare at Rs 175 per share, the Munjals and Burmans also said they would increase their investment to Rs 1,800 crore, without any due diligence, from a previously revised offer of Rs 1,500 crore.

Under their revised offer, the Munjals and Burmans proposed to invest Rs 800 crore through a preferential allotment of equity shares at Rs 167 per share.
Further, they offered to invest another Rs 1,000 crore via preferential issue of warrants priced at Rs 176 per share or as per Sebi ICDR guidelines, whichever is higher.
