Max India sold its entire 51% stake in Max Bupa Health Insurance Co Ltd to private equity firm True North Fund for over Rs 510 crore. Earlier, it was in talks with HDFC Life to merger its life insurance business Max Life. But that failed as the insurance regulator objected to the proposed deal.
In fact, Max Bupa’s divestment follows Analjit Singh-owned company’s composite transaction involving demerger of Max India and the merger of Max Healthcare with Radiant-KKR. In the business community, savy Analjit Singh is known as a serial entrepreneur, who builds and sells his businesses. He has the ability to spot an opportunity in business like he did with telecom where he made Rs 561 crore in 1998 by selling his 41% stake in a joint venture with Hutchison Whampoa Ltd and insurance and healthcare early on, and more than that to quit when the business is on the top.
