Kathmandu: The merger process between Ajod Insurance and United Insurance has kicked off with the memorandum of understanding (MoU) between these two companies on Tuesday. Ajod Insurance opted for merger with United Insurance following the termination of merger agreement with Prabhu Insurance.

Rabindra Raj Pant, director of United Insurance, and Chiranjeevi Dawa, director of Ajod Insurance, signed the preliminary agreement on Tuesday. They signed in the presence of United president Ravi Bhakta Shrestha and Ajod Insurance’s president Ajad Shrestha. According to the MoU, a swap ratio of 100 equal to 90 has been agreed upon between United Insurance and Ajod Insurance. Now, after the completion of the merger process, the 100 shares of Ajod Insurance’s shareholders will be converted to 90 shares of the new company that comes into existence after the merger.
