Outlook & Valuation
BSE India's largest and world's 11th largest exchange by market capitalization, with USD 1.52 trillion in total market capitalization of listed companies. India’s exchange sector is still at nascent stage as compared to developed and developing economies. Equity as % of financial savings in India is mere 5% compared to 14% in China, 15% in Brazil, 20% in Indonesia and 42% USA. This participation is only going to increase going ahead and that will boost the exchange business. We believe that there is significant growth potential for BSE given - a) Government’s efforts on increasing retail and EPFO participation in capital markets, b) New products and innovations such as REITs, commodity trading and infrastructure investment trusts and c) Information services segment which currently contributes ~4% of revenue vis-à-vis global revenue contribution of ~10-25%. At the upper end of the price band, the stock is available at P/E of 28x based on annualized FY17E earnings. It’s nearest comparable MCX is trading at P/E of 39x based on FY17E earnings. We recommend SUBSCRIBE to the issue with long term perspective.
