Kolkata: UTI Asset Management Company will float an initial public offer by March-end next year to help its sponsors, SBI, LIC, PNB and BoB, offload up to 50%.
UTI Asset Management Company Ltd chairman and managing director U K Sinha told PTI that the board of the company had recently approved the proposal to offload up to 50% stake held by the four sponsors.
State Bank of India (SBI), Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC), Punjab National Bank (PNB) and Bank of Baroda (BoB), individually hold 25% stake each in the asset management firm.
Sinha said UTI AMC would probably be the first domestic mutual fund in the country to go for an IPO, through which the four sponsors would make a partial exit.
He said the details on the valuation of the company were being worked out.
The valuation of the firm was last done in November 2005, when the four sponsors bought stake in it.
