So if Parkson is to sell the all the stake, it will make Rs 2.8 billion

A 100% gain for 2 years.

Looking at Odel AR, it has super high advertisement and marketing costs, and the latest quarter is loss-making, it has heavy debt liabilities too.

Wonder if Parkson Retail Asia will sell?

I hope they will.
