ICICI Lombard General Insurance Company has filed draft prospectus with Sebi to dilute around 19 per cent stake through an initial public offering, promoter ICICI Bank said as per the PTI report. ICICI Lombard, a joint venture between ICICI Bank and Canada-based Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd, will be the first private general insurer to go public with an IPO.
ICICI Lombard filed a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with capital market regulator Sebi, ICICI Bank said in a filing to the BSE. The IPO involves dilution of up to 86,247,187 equity shares of face value of Rs 10 each of ICICI Lombard General Insurance, representing around 19 per cent of its equity share capital, the filing said. ICICI Bank will sell up to 31,761,478 equity shares and Fairfax Holdings up to 54,485,709 equity shares.
"The offer includes a proposed reservation of up to 4,312,359 shares or 5 per cent of the offer, for individual and Hindu Undivided Family (HUF) shareholders of the bank," ICICI Bank said. The entire proceeds from the offer for sale will be paid to the selling shareholders (which includes our promoter, ICICI Bank) and we will not receive any such proceeds," says the DRHP document filed by ICICI Lombard.
