National Securities Depository Limited Key Developments

NSE Plans Stake Sale In Arms

National Stock Exchange of India Ltd. (NSE) is in talks with institutional investors for unloading its stake. The transaction is required to meet a three-year deadline, ending 2015, to reduce stake. An NSE spokesperson confirmed that talks with potential investors in National Securities Depository Ltd (NSDL) were on but declined to provide details. "In the case of depositories, a minimum 51% will be held by sponsors and the existing list of sponsors will continue. No other entity will be allowed to hold more than five per cent of equity share capital. A single stock exchange will, however, not hold more than 24%" Sebi (Securities and Exchange Board of India) had said.

Companies Reportedly Eyeing Stakes In GST Tax Network Companies

ICICI Bank Ltd. and Housing Development Finance Corporation Limited have expressed interest in acquiring stakes in the companies that will set up the goods and services tax network, according to two finance ministry officials. HDFC Bank Ltd., LIC Housing Finance Ltd., National Stock Exchange of India Ltd. and IDFC Limited also intend to acquire those firms. A 51% stake is reserved for private firms in the company that will set up the technology backbone of the tax system. "While LIC Housing Finance and NSE have expressed willingness to hold 11% or more stake, the remaining four financial institutions have expressed willingness to hold up to a 10% stake," said a finance ministry official, who did not want to be identified. "A final decision on the shareholding pattern will be taken after the empowered committee of state finance ministers gives its nod." "We want National Securities Depository Ltd. to work for the network. If NSDL becomes a major shareholder, then there would be a conflict of interest," said a second finance ministry official, who, too, did not want to be identified. Mint added that Spokespersons for HDFC and LIC Housing confirmed their interest. The HDFC spokesperson termed the network as a development initiative. NSE declined comment and an email sent to ICICI Bank, HDFC and IDFC remained unanswered. Gagan Rai, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of NSDL, confirmed the company will not be a shareholder in the network. "Nothing is finalized as of now," he said.
