HDFC Life, Max carve out new structure for merger

MUMBAI: HDFC Life Insurance Co Ltd and Max Life Insurance Co Ltd have carved out a new structure for their proposed merger after the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India rejected the original threestep union, said two people with knowledge of the discussions.

The two companies have decided to extend the deadline for completing the merger, they said, declining to be identified citing the sensitivity of the discussions. Meanwhile, HDFC Life has also informally asked its bankers to start preparing for an initial public offering.

The deadline for the original merger plan expires on June 30. HDFC Life and Max spokespersons did not respond to emails seeking comment.
