Nazara Technologies' board on Monday approved to issue shares worth Rs 100 crore to Zerodha’s founders Nikhil and Nithin Kamath.

With this development, the stocks of the company jumped 10.53% to hit a 52-week high of Rs 839.15.

Nazara's regulatory fillings stated, "The company is proposing to issue 14,00,560 equity shares of face value of Rs 4/- each at a price of Rs 714/- per equity share aggregating to Rs 999,999,840/- (“Issue”) proportionately to M/s Kamath Associates & M/s NKSquared.
