Economical Insurance and its new parent company, Definity Financial Corporation, have reportedly revealed that Definity is looking to go public.

Definity is said to have submitted the PREP prospectus with the Canadian authorities in all provinces and territories. The price of its common shares that will be offered, however, is yet to be determined.

Economical Insurance’s initial public offering (IPO) plans came into limelight after it opted for demutualization. The newly created entity, Definity, was created under the Insurance Companies Act of Canada in order to act as the Waterloo-based company’s parent organization after the demutualization is complete.

Apart from Economical Insurance, Definity will also act as the parent company of Petline Insurance Company, Family Insurance Solutions, and Sonnet Insurance Company.
