This translates to Rs 10 per share, Max India said in a statement. The record date for the dividend has been set at November 23, 2012, it added.
A sustained increase in profitability, inflow from maiden dividend declared by Max Life coupled with Rs 802 crore received by Max India from the recent transaction involving acquisition of 26 per cent stake in its life insurance subsidiary Max Life by Mitsui Sumitomo, has significantly boosted the treasury corpus, it said.
Max Life is 70 per cent owned by Max India.
