India Eyes IPOs For Five Insurers

Government of India could launch IPOs for up to five state owned insurers this year. In its budget published last week the Indian government said it would sell up to 25% stakes in state-owned General Insurance Corporation of India; The Oriental Insurance Company Limited; The New India Assurance Co. Ltd.; United India Insurance Co. Ltd. and National Insurance Company Limited; in the financial year starting in April. Bankers expect the sales, which could raise as much as $1.6 billion (£1.3 billion), to happen by the end of this year. India's cabinet approved the sales in January, and the government plans to cut their stakes in the insurers to around 75% from 100%. The Indian government is expected to appoint banking advisors within the next couple of months.
