The firm will act as financial advisor to the board to provide its independent opinion on the offers received or to be received from bidders for a potential significant equity investment and/or acquisition or restructuring of its assets, and on the appropriateness of the process put into place for dealing with the said offers, the healthcare major said in a regulatory filing.

Fortis Healthcare board is scheduled to meet on May 10 to take a decision on the binding bids for the company as recommended by the expert advisory committee (EAC).

The fifth bidder, Fosun Health Holdings, an arm of Fosun International, which made a non-binding proposal to invest a total of USD 350 million (over Rs 2,295 crore) at a price up to Rs 156 per share, has so far not revised its offer.
