Realty major DLF's third quarter profit is seen rising 7.3 percent year-on-year to Rs 176 crore but revenue may fall 30 percent to Rs 1,988 crore due to demonetisation.

Close

Most important factor to watch out for is the status of DLF Cyber City stake sale and financial restructuring. Deal value is expected to be Rs 11,000-12,000 crore.


Promoters are looking to sell 40 percent stake in DLF Cyber City. Media reports indicated that promoters are not happy with bids from GIC and Blackstone and hence there is a delay in deal closure.
