Mumbai: Public-sector insurer Life Insurance Corp (LIC), which holds 4.34% in the troubled IT firm, Satyam Computer Services, today said it is assessing the situation and will take a decision on its holding accordingly.
“We have 4.34% stake in Satyam Computer Services. We are concerned and will consider a decision according to how the situation develops,” LIC MD Thomas Mathew said.
“We are a long-term investor and we do not believe in any short-term investments. All our investments are on the basis of strong reasearch and we look at the fundamentals of the company we invest in. Satyam is a niche player,” Mathew, who is incharge of the investment, said.
