The company law board has approved the sale of Satyam Computer to Tech Mahindra, which emerged as the highest bidder for the scam-hit company.
Earlier, Satyam had sought the approval of CLB to issue 31 per cent of fresh equity to Tech Mahindra. Satyam had also sought the CLBs nod to seek its nod to induct four directors from Tech Mahindra and sought more time for declaring financial results.
Kiran Karnik, the chairman of the government appointed board of Satyam, said that it is up to Tech Mahindra to decide the way forward for Satyam and it has not received any formal communication from Tech Mahindra on retaining the existing board. He also expressed satisfaction over the fast pace of Satyam sale process.
On the restatement of results, CLB said it can be done by December 31, including all the pending results. CLB also said that Tech Mahindra cannot appoint more than four board members on Satyams board and Tech Mahindra has to deposit Rs 1,756 cr into Satyams account by April 21.
