"All assets and liabilities of these companies shall be transferred to Minda Corp at book value as on the designated appointed date of 1 April, 2018," the company said.

The revenue of the merged entity will increase to around Rs 1,972 crore compared to standalone revenue of Rs 9,70.2 crore, based on FY18 results.

The proposed merger will not result in the expansion of equity capital or change in the shareholding pattern of Minda Corporation, it added.

"Spark Minda family is excited about the proposed merger of 100 percent Indian subsidiaries which would result
in simplification of corporate structure and a larger standalone entity.

"This initiative would lead to cost optimisation and better value proposition to the stakeholders," chairman and group chief executive Ashok Minda said.
