Much-awaited LIC IPO is likely to hit the street in May now as the government plans to defer the mega public issue owing to jittery market conditions. Earlier last week, the capital markets regulator SEBI approved LIC’s IPO where the government is looking to sell 5% of its stake. With the current set of approvals from SEBI, LIC can bring the IPO before May 12. The only additional requirement till then will be an addendum to the draft red herring prospectus on the insurer’s December quarter results. The government hopes to raise Rs 65,000-70,000 crore through the IPO.
