On Tuesday, May 21, the share prices of Apollo Tyres ended the day's trade with over 5 per cent increase in its share price value.

It notably also has investments in some other renowned Indian companies, including audio equipment manufacturer Boat and Indian tech and mobility company Ola.

Nevertheless, the prices of the shares continued to trade in green, as the share prices gained 2.52 per cent, taking the value of each individual share to Rs 494.75.
