“The deal is being structured in such a way that the combined healthcare business will be listed on the Indian bourses with KKR as the dominant investor with about 50 percent stake… Analjit Singh, the founding promoters of the Max Group, will have about 15-16 percent stake and Abhay Soi, who owns a 51 percent stake in Radiant Life Care, will have a 14-15 percent stake in the ultimate listed company," a source was quoted as saying in the report.
According to the ET sources, under the deal, Max India will first be split to create a pure play listed holding company. Following this, the combined entity that consists of Radiant and Max Healthcare will be into the holding company, the report said.
The remaining stakes, which will be around 20 percent, will be with the public shareholders of Max India, the report added.
The development comes after Max India entered into a definitive agreement to buy a 49.7 percent stake in Max Healthcare for $293 million from South Africa-headquartered Life Healthcare Group Holdings last September, the report said.
