Shares of India’s Zee Entertainment fell 31% on Tuesday after a division of Japanese tech giant Sony scrapped plans for a merger.

Sony first proposed to combine its India entertainment business with Zee in December 2021. Those negotiations collapsed after more than two years.

On Monday, Sony said that it terminated the merger because “among other things, the closing conditions to the Merger were not satisfied” by the agreed closing date.
