Canadian Investor : Fairfax has got a preliminary conditional nod from regulator Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India (Irdai) for a new non-life venture with another partner. It is reportedly looking to part-sell its stake to another buyer. As per regulatory requirements, Fairfax will have to bring down its holding to 10 per cent in ICICI Lombard.
Any such stake sale could have an indirect bearing on the valuations of ICICI Lombard. ICICI Lombard was valued at Rs 17,000-19,000 crores as per recent brokerage reports and a dilution of 25 per cent would fetch the insurer around Rs 4,500 crores.
