According to a Labour Department data released on Friday, US companies added 275,000 jobs last month, easily exceeding the 200,000 experts had predicted.

Co-founder of IndiGo Rakesh Gangwal hopes to raise roughly $450 million through a block transaction.

According to various people familiar with the issue who spoke on condition of anonymity, IndiGo co-founder Rakesh Gangwal intends to raise around $450 million by selling a 3.3 percent interest in Interglobe Aviation. “The offer floor price for the proposed block deal is Rs 2,925 per share with a 5.8 percent discount to the last close price,” according to one of the individuals.

The investment banks advising Gangwal on the deal are Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, and Goldman Sachs, the second person said.

Rates are held by the ECB while inflation remains high.

The European Central Bank delayed beginning to lower borrowing costs on Thursday due to worries that sticky inflation is not abating as quickly as anticipated. As a result, interest rates were frozen once more.

As was to be expected, the governing council of the Frankfurt-based institution kept the benchmark deposit rate at a record four percent for the fourth consecutive meeting.

“Although most measures of underlying inflation have eased further, domestic price pressures remain high, in part owing to strong growth in wages,” the European Central Bank said in a statement.
