Colgate Palmolive (India) today said its board has approved the selling of a division to Colgate Global Business Services (CGBSPL) for Rs 59.89 crore.

The board has agreed to sell the company’s division — Global Shared Services Organisation — to CGBSPL, which is a 100 per cent subsidiary of holding company, Colgate Palmolive Company, USA (CP-USA), by way of a slump sale for Rs 59.89 crore effective June 1, 2013, Colgate Palmolive said in a filing to the BSE.

“The above consideration has been arrived at on the basis of independent valuation conducted by Ernst & Young Pvt Ltd, to be suitably adjusted at the time of actual transfer,” it added.

The sale will include transfer of all employees, assets, and liabilities, the company said.

In a separate filing to the BSE, the company said its board has approved a third interim dividend of Rs 9 per equity share of Re 1 for the financial year ending March 31, 2013.
