    FAQs on de-merger

      On June 12, 2015, the Mastek share price was adjusted for De-merger.

      On April 30, 2015, the Hon. High Court of Gujarat and Hon. High Court of Bombay approved the Scheme of Arrangement, which was earlier approved by the Stock Exchanges on December 09, 2014. The Scheme envisaged creation of independent listed Insurance business company by demerger of Insurance business of Mastek to MCPL (renamed as Majesco Limited – “Majesco”). Post demerger Majesco achieved automatically listing with stock exchanges and all the shareholders of Mastek as on June 15, 2015 were allotted shares in Majesco in the same proportion (share entitlement being 1:1, pursuant to Part II of the Scheme of Arrangement in terms of clause 11.1.1).

      Insurance Products & Services business is an IP driven business model and is largely US centric. This business needs investments to capitalize on the large opportunity in US market. At the same time, Vertical Solutions business which is focused in the UK market, needs to address newer opportunities and expand the client footprint. Restructuring will enable both the businesses to function independently and focus on their growth plans.

      • Businesses are different in terms of business model, growth opportunities, investment required and staff profile.
      1. While the Insurance Products & Services business offers us tremendous growth potential, it has high investment requirements in terms of R&D, Brand Building and sales.
      2. The Vertical Solutions business offers steady growth which is more profitable with less investment.
      • Combining these businesses under one umbrella made it difficult for each of these businesses to perform to full potential.
      • The differing risk-reward profiles of these two businesses led to sub-optimal overall performance of the company.
      • In order to mitigate these challenges, management decided to restructure the business.
      • Insurance Products & Services business with higher R&D investment and specialized skillsets will be able to gain market leadership. This will lead to higher license revenue and higher profitability.
      • Solution enjoys good reputation for delivering complex, green-field programs within UK and Indian government. This restructuring presents an opportunity to focus on building new capabilities and addressing new markets within the vertical solutions business.
      • Restructuring will provide an opportunity to the shareholders to participate in the business of their choice based on their risk reward profile.
      • Demerger would facilitate independent value discovery of both the businesses leading to maximization of value for shareholders.

      Every shareholder of Mastek will get 1 share in Majesco for every share held in Mastek and the shareholder will continue to hold the original Mastek share.

      Post High Court approval, the scheme of arrangement was filed with the Registrar of Companies on June 01, 2015, which was the effective date of the transaction.

      Appointed date for the demerger was kept as April 01, 2014 for convenience from an accounting perspective.

      Majesco Limited got listed on August 19, 2015.

      The share capital of Majesco Limited was the same as Mastek, on the date, the De-merger became effective.
