According to reports, Tata Sons was classified as an upper-layer NBFC last year, mandating its listing on exchanges within 1.5 years. The potential listing of Tata Sons could significantly benefit Tata Chemicals and three other companies: Tata Motors, Tata Power, and Indian Hotels.

This rally comes in the wake of a 12% correction in Soda Ash prices over the last month and a 40% decline from its peak in October 2021.

Other Tata Group stocks like Tata Motors, Tata Power, and Indian Hotels could also witness significant value appreciation following the listing of Tata Sons, as they also hold stakes ranging from 1% to 3% in the company. The holding value of these companies in Tata sons is in the range of 16% to 20% of their current market capitalization.
