More on the Bajaj Auto saga. From a news story in DNA on the same subject -
"Rajeev Varma and Aashish Agarwal of Merrill Lynch, in a February 2, 2007 report, had valued the life insurance business at Rs 12,384.30 crore, based on certain assumptions and performance of 2007-08."Nothing gets more appalling than this. Analysts value business worth more than Rs 12,000 Crores (or $ 3 billion) based on assumptions. Is it that hard to get the information about JV from the company that one has to fall back on fanciful imagination?
