SEBI may ease rules of acquisition of distressed assets

To make it more attractive for investors

by Natasha Nadkar

The SEBI board may ease rules of acquisition to make it more attractive for investors to buy distressed companies from banks in its upcoming board meeting on 21 June 2017, as per a report in Economic Times. SEBI has been granting exemptions to banks acquiring shares of distressed companies. This includes relaxing the pricing formula for making an open offer to public shareholders and lock-in requirements. The market regulator has received feedback to extend these exemptions to other prospective buyers as well. Hence, the RBI has been in consultation with SEBI to extend the exemptions to prospective investors in order to make it more practical to deal with the NPA issue.
