The bank's board on January 13, 2018 had approved a composite scheme of amalgamation of Capital First, Capital First Home Finance and Capital First Securities (collectively referred as amalgamating companies) with IDFC Bank (amalgamated company).
IDFC Bank has already received approvals from the National Housing Bank, CCI, BSE, NSE, RBI, shareholders and creditors of the amalgamating companies as well as the amalgamated company.
Capital First and IDFC Bank would create a Rs 880-bn combined entity with the merger in an all-stock deal.
The share swap ratio for the merger is fixed at 139:10, meaning IDFC Bank will issue 139 shares for every 10 shares of Capital First.
IDFC had applied for a banking licence in 2013 and got in-principle approval for the same from the RBI in the following year.
Stock of IDFC Bank was trading flat at Rs 38.35 on BSE. Capital First traded at Rs 525, up 0.22 per cent.
