The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), in its meeting on 14 January, proposed revisions to the regulatory framework governing the merger of an unlisted company with a listed company.

The existing regime comprises

(a) the SEBI circular dated 30 November 2015 setting out the guidelines for schemes of arrangement/merger of listed entities, and relaxation from the requirements under the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Rules, 1957; and (b) the SEBI (Listing Obligations and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2015.

Many companies view a merger with a smaller listed entity as a convenient and shorter route to listing as compared to an initial public offering (IPO). SEBI’s proposed revisions aim at ensuring a fair merger of a large unlisted company with a smaller listed company, where such merger is not detrimental to the interests of public shareholders of the listed company.
