(Adds open offer details)
    April 22 (Reuters) - U.S.-based Blackstone Group  BX.N 
agreed to buy a 51 percent stake in Essel Propack Ltd  ESSL.NS ,
India's largest rigid plastic packaging provider said https://www.nseindia.com/corporate/SURJE_SINGH_22042019172429_SE_Letter_378.pdf
 on Monday.
    Blackstone will buy the stake from the Ashok Goel Trust at
134 rupees per share, representing a premium of 1.1 percent over
the company's Monday closing price.
    Under India's takeover rules, the transaction triggered a
mandatory open offer in which Blackstone, along with Epsilon
BidCo Pte Ltd, offered https://www.nseindia.com/corporate/listcontract1_22042019170103_OPEN_359.pdf
 to buy an additional 26 percent stake in Essel for 11.42
billion rupees ($163.92 million).
    The total deal value will range from $310 million to $462
million, based on the open offer. The Trust will retain a 6
percent stake in the company, Essel Propack said.
    In December, Blackstone Chairman Stephen Schwarzman told the
Economic Times that a reform-oriented government, weak rupee,
bumper exits and new opportunities in bankruptcy and structured
capital services will likely make India favourable for
aggressive purchases.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL3N1YJ2EY
