Lumax Group simplifies corporate structure with an eye on costs

Lumax Auto Technologies Limited (LATL), a leading manufacturer and supplier of automotive components, lighting solutions, moulded parts, and frame chassis, announced today the amalgamation of its wholly-owned subsidiary, Lumax Ancillary Limited (LAL), with the parent company. This move is set to simplify the corporate structure and streamline operations for the Lumax Group.

The amalgamation will result in the consolidation of both companies into a single entity, enabling the management to effectively oversee operations with a single focused team. By eliminating multiple entities within the group, the amalgamation is expected to contribute to the achievement of business objectives and accelerate growth, expansion, and development of the respective businesses through LATL.

Deepak Jain, Chairman and Managing Director of Lumax Auto Technologies Limited, stated, "This amalgamation is a strategic step towards simplifying our corporate structure and enhancing operational efficiency. By integrating LAL into LATL, we aim to streamline our management structure, implement policy changes seamlessly, and enhance overall control and efficiency."

The independent operations of LAL and LATL have led to significant costs and duplication of administrative and establishment expenses. The amalgamation is expected to enable economies of scale, achieve cost savings, and result in better financial management of resources. The elimination of a multi-layered structure and reduction in managerial overlaps will prevent cost duplication and lead to more efficient utilization of capital and the creation of a consolidated base for future growth.

The proposed arrangement is also anticipated to provide greater integration and flexibility to LATL, strengthening its position in the industry in terms of asset base, revenues, and service range. The amalgamation is expected to create synergy benefits for stakeholders of both companies and optimize the valuation of the consolidated entity.

As per the scheme of amalgamation, all equity shares of LAL held by LATL will stand cancelled without any further application, act, or deed. No new shares will be issued or payment made in cash by LATL in lieu of shares of LAL, as LAL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of LATL.

The shareholding pattern of LATL will remain unchanged post-amalgamation, with promoters holding 55.98% and the public holding 44.02% of the total shares. LAL will cease to exist as a separate entity post-amalgamation.

The amalgamation is expected to be completed within the next few months, subject to necessary approvals and regulatory compliance. This strategic move by the Lumax Group is set to unlock potential synergies across products, customers, technology, and manufacturing excellence, positioning the company for future growth and success in the automotive components industry.
