The company's shares were trading at Rs 60 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, up 10.79%. The Aditya Birla Group had announced that it had acquired 27.5 per cent stake in the company, thus making an entry into the media business.

Living Media is a holding company and owns 57.46% in TV Today Network, the listed company that controls the group’s broadcasting assets such as Aaj Tak and Headlines Today, besides publishing a number of publications that include the flagship India Today.
