Yesterday, Janasewi Laghubitta had signed a MoU to merge with Kalika Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited (KMCDB). 

As per the company officials of Janasewi, the name of the merged institution will be Jana Kalika Microfinance and the swap ratio will be 1:1. The company is discussing to do IPO listing post merger under the name Jana Kalika. The current rule dictates that the listing be done within 30 days, but even if the shares get listed now it wont be tradable as it is undergoing merger with KMCDB. And post merger it will again have to change company name, therefore SEBON has asked to submit a letter specifying the same and considerations will be made.
