No more Honda, Just Hero !!!

Hero Honda gets nod to change name 

NEW DELHI: The shareholders of Hero Honda have approved the changing of the name of the company to Hero MotoCorp Ltd, post the exit of Japan's Honda from the Munjals-promoted firm.

The proposal was approved by shareholders at an extraordinary general meeting of the company.

Last December, the Hero Group and Honda had agreed to end their 26-yearold relationship, with the Indian partner agreeing to buy out Honda's 26% stake in Hero Honda for Rs 3,841.8 crore.

The two partners had, however, signed a new licensing agreement under which Hero Honda will pay Honda around Rs 2,450 crore till 2014.

As a result of the separation the word 'Honda' needs to be dropped from the name of the company — Hero Honda Motors Ltd. AGENCIES
