Aviva Life Insurance Company India Ltd. Key Developments

Max Life Drops Bid For Aviva Life

Max Life Insurance Company Limited has pulled out of the bid to acquire Aviva Life Insurance Company India Pvt. Ltd. A source close to the development told Financial Chronicle that the two private life insurance players, HDFC Standard Life Insurance Co., Ltd. and Birla Sun Life Insurance Company Limited, have entered a non-binding agreement with Aviva plc (LSE:AV.) a few weeks back. “We did not see value in the deal,” said a source in Max Life Insurance. According to a person close to the development, Aviva Life is looking at a valuation of INR 50 billion, while its embedded value is estimated to be around INR 18 billion. “Aviva has a good back-book and a strong franchise in the south besides a robust distribution strength comprising agency, online and corporate relationship tie-ups. But they are asking for too much,” said an official with one of the bidders. A mail sent to Aviva Life director Mohit Burman, who represents Dabur, did not elicit any response. Top officials of Aviva Life, HDFC Life and Birla Sun Life refused to comment.

Aviva plc Looking To Sell Aviva Life Insurance

Aviva plc (LSE:AV.) has shortlisted Birla Sun Life Insurance Company Limited (Birla Sun Life), HDFC Standard Life Insurance Co., Ltd. (HDFC Life) and Max Life Insurance Company Limited to sell its 26% stake in Aviva Life Insurance Company India Pvt. Ltd. (Aviva India), a person with knowledge of the matter said. The Burmans, the majority shareholders of Aviva India, may also tag along and sell their stake because the family feels the investment has been underperforming, the person said. The three shortlisted companies, which are among six that had initially bid for the stake, are interested in buying the entire business, and not just the 26% that Aviva holds, the person added. Mohit Burman did not reply to messages. Aviva had appointed JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank to manage the share sale. Executives at HDFC Life and Birla Sun Life, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said their companies are among the shortlisted bidders.

Aviva Life Got Interests From Bidders

HDFC Standard Life Insurance Co., Ltd. and Birla Sun Life Insurance Company Limited are among the six insurance companies which have expressed interest in acquiring stake in Aviva Life Insurance Company India Pvt. Ltd. a joint venture between Aviva plc (LSE:AV.) and Dabur India Ltd. (BSE:500096). The Burmans of the Dabur family, too, will sell their holding. "We have received bids from six companies, both existing and new," said Mohit Burman, Chairman of Aviva Life. "If the valuation is right, we may look at exiting from the business, too." Two people familiar with the development said Samsung Life Insurance Co., Ltd. (KOSE:A032830) and Manulife Holdings Berhad (KLSE:MANULFE) are the other bidders for the business. Aviva has appointed JP Morgan and Deutsche Bank to sell its stake in Aviv Life which could be valued at around INR 50 billion, Burman said. However, Indian insurance companies are interested in buying the entire business, and not just Aviva's 26%. HDFC Life, responding to Economic Times telling that it doesn't comment on market rumours or media speculation, and it doesn't intend to comment on such matters unless some kind of disclosure is warranted.
