Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC IPO Listing
by 5paisa Research Team 11/10/2021

Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC had a rather tepid listing on 11th October as it listed at a premium of Rs.3, but soon slipped into a discount and closed the day at a discount to the issue price. The stock closed the day, below the listing price as well as the IPO price. With overall subscription of 5.25X and GMP ranging from 4-5%, the listing was expected to be tepid. Here is the Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC listing story on 11th October.

The IPO price was fixed at the upper end of the band at Rs.712 after the 5.25X subscription. The price band for the IPO was Rs.695 to Rs.712. On 11th Oct, the stock of Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC listed on the NSE at a price of Rs.715, just Rs.3 above the issue price of Rs.712. On the BSE, the stock listed exactly at the issue price of Rs.712.

Rally in Tata Group Stocks: Tata Motors and Tata Power

Tata Motors and Tata Power
by 5paisa Research Team 11/10/2021

The Tata group overall has been one of the biggest wealth creators in the last one year. You pick any stock be it TCS, Tata Steel, Tata Motors, Titan or Tata Power; they have all given exceptional returns in the last one year. But two stocks have stood out in the last one month for their breath-taking rally. They are Tata Motors and Tata Power.


CMP (Rs.)

1-Month Returns

Returns from yearly low

Tata Motors Ltd




Tata Power Ltd





A quick look at the table is enough to underline the kind of rally that these stocks have been through. Till about a couple of years ago, these stocks virtually did nothing. Today, both Tata Motors and Tata Power are at multi-year highs. Interestingly, the broad underlying theme is also the same. In the case of Tata Motors, the reason for the enthusiasm is the foray into green EVs while in the case of Tata Power it is the focus on Green Energy.

Let us look at Tata Motors first. Clearly, the markets are extremely enthused about the aggression shown by the company on the electrical vehicles foray. At a time when the Maruti Chairman has refused to even seriously look at EVs, the Tatas are heavily investing their bandwidth into the electrical vehicles business. Now there is talk of stake sale.

According to latest reports, Tata Motors may look at selling a stake in the EV business to TPG, Temasek and others to monetize about $1 billion. The deal is expected to value the EV business alone at around $8-9 billion. If you add the domestic PV, CV and the global JLR business, it surely makes a case for re-rating Tata Motors. That is evident in prices.

On the green energy front, Tata Power is making aggressive forays. Along with its subsidiaries, Tata Power has installed / managed capacity of over 13 GW of solar power capacity. The sharp bias in favour of green energy got a sudden fillip in the last one month when the coal shortage created a crisis of sorts for the thermal power sector.

Currently, its solar order book is worth Rs.9,264 crore and that is helping valuations in a big way. The price action in Tata Motors and Tata Powers clearly highlights their green shift.

NSE Launches Weekly Currency Futures on USDINR

NSE Launches Weekly Currency Futures on USDINR
by 5paisa Research Team 12/10/2021

Monthly currency futures contracts on USDINR are one of the oldest and most popular currency futures contracts traded on the NSE. To make the markets for USDINR futures deeper and more liquid, NSE has now launched weekly currency futures on the USDINR. Normally, USDINR futures are bought when the trader is positive on the dollar and the USDINR futures are sold when the trader is negative on the dollar.

The mock trading for the weekly USDINR futures was conducted on 09-Oct and the trading was officially launched on the NSE on 11-Oct. The trading has commenced with 3 weekly contracts comprising of the near-week, mid-week and the far-week. In addition, NSE has also permitted trading in two spread contracts across different maturities.

The table below captures the weekly USDINR contracts to begin with.



Expiry Date














In addition, there will be 2 spread contracts made available as under.











In the equity futures market, weekly options on the Nifty and the Bank Nifty are extremely popular and also very liquid. It is hoped that the introduction of weekly futures in the currency markets will be instrumental in bringing more participation and depth to the currency futures trading in India. Weekly futures tend to be lower on the risk scale.

On the first day of trading on 11-Oct, the volumes were fairly robust and there appeared to be a lot of trading interest in this relatively lower risk product. According to data put out by the NSE, a total of 122 members participated in the trading of weekly USDINR futures and a total of 1.43 lakh contracts got transacted on the day. The total value of the trading in weekly USDINR futures on the day of launch stood at Rs.1,080 crore.

While the USDINR remains the most popular rupee pair in terms of volumes and OI, the exchange also offers pairs of GBPINR, EURINR and JPYINR. In addition to these four rupee pairs, the exchange also offers 3 cross-currency pairs viz. EURUSD, GBPUSD and USDJPY.

Invesco Objects to the Merger of Zee and Sony Pictures

Invesco Objects to the Merger of Zee and Sony Pictures
by 5paisa Research Team 12/10/2021

The stand-off between Zee Entertainment board and its largest investor, Invesco Fund, has played out in the public domain for the last 1 month. A lot has transpired in this period. It all started with Invesco calling for the removal of Punit Goenka from the post of MD & CEO. This was followed by Zee announcing a quickly stitched merger with Sony Pictures. Repeated requests by Invesco to call an EGM were denied by the Zee board.

Check - Invesco wants EGM to Replace Punit Goenka from the Post of MD & CEO

In the midst of all the legal and procedural wrangling, there is a latest development in which Invesco has objected to the merger of Zee and Sony Pictures. Invesco’s contention is two-fold. Firstly, Invesco is unhappy that despite being the largest shareholder of Zee with 17.88% stake, it was not consulted on the deal. Secondly, Invesco has expressed concerns that the deal would favour the Subhash Chandra family at the cost of other shareholders.

It is actually about the non-compete fee

The bone of contention is the non-compete fee that Sony is paying to the Subhash Chandra family. The fee will not be a cash payment but it will be a stock payment. As per the term-sheet, Sony will have 53% in the merged entity while Zee will have 47%. 

However, Sony will transfer 2% out of its shareholding to the Subhash Chandra family as non-compete fee. Invesco’s contention is that non-compete fee questions should not arise when Punit Goenka has been appointed the MD and CEO of the merged entity for next 5 years.

The real catch in this story is the ownership shift that Invesco is wary of. Currently Invesco holds 17.88% in Zee while the Subhash Chandra family holds 3.44%. Post the deal, Invesco will only hold 8.4% while Subhash Chandra family will hold 4% (including the non-compete fee). That is what is riling Invesco as it feels that the narrowing of ownership gap between Invesco and Subhash Chandra family was not justified.

The next steps would depend on the verdict of the NCLT on the holding of EGM and how the voting happens at the EGM. For now, the battle lines are drawn and neither side is willing to relent on their stand.

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala's Akasa Air Gets Approval to Launch Operations

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala Akasa Air Gets Approval
by 5paisa Research Team 12/10/2021

Rakesh Jhunjhunwala is not called the Warren Buffett of India without reason. He is known to bet big on stories that he finds convincing. Titan is, perhaps, the finest example of his acumen in picking stocks early and holding them through its journey. Interestingly, his next big bet is on airways and like his mentor, Radhakishan Damani, this time Rakesh will also drive the business.

Akasa Air has announced that it has received approval from the Ministry of Civil Aviation to commence its air operations by the middle of 2022. The next step will be to get the approval of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Subsequently, the flight manuals, logs and processes have to be documented and approved before starting.

Jhunjhunwala has already roped Vinay Dube as the CEO of his airline venture. Vinay Dube was formerly the CEO of Jet Airways before it was grounded. While Rakesh has invested Rs.248 crore in Akasa Air, the promoter of New Horizon Funds is also putting his funds on the project.

Check - Rakesh Jhunjhunwala Bets Big on Indian Aviation with Akasa Air

Apart from Dube, the other airline veteran who has teamed up with Jhunjhunwala for Akasa Air is Aditya Ghosh, the former CEO of Indigo Airlines. Ghosh is credited with the ruthlessly efficient model adopted by Indigo which created the momentum for Indigo to eventually capture 55% market share of the domestic Indian market.

The airline industry, being a highly contact intensive sector, has borne the brunt of the pandemic. However, the recovery is likely to be equally rapid. There is a huge gap in the aviation sector and the recent instance of Tatas winning the bid for Air India is just one more example of power pockets getting created in the aviation industry. The game is open and the market will gravitate to the most efficient and the most economical airline.

While the aircraft acquisition and leasing plans of Akasa Air are still under wraps, it is already being reported that in the coming year Akasa may be the biggest buyer of Boeing 737 aircraft outside of the United States. It surely looks like another aggressive innings for Rakesh Jhunjhunwala.

Zostel asks SEBI to Reject OYO’s $1.2 billion IPO

Why Zostel has a problem with OYO IPO
by 5paisa Research Team 12/10/2021

As Oravel Stays, the company that owns and operates the OYO brand, gets set for its Rs.8,430 crore IPO, it is likely to face a roadblock from a 6 year old deal that had failed. This pertains to the proposed acquisition of Zostel and Zo Rooms by OYO in 2015. The deal finally fell through and subsequent to that Zostel had to shut down its business. Now Zostel has written to SEBI about the breach of terms by OYO.

Check - Oravel Stays (OYO) Files for Rs.8,430 Crore IPO

According to the letter written by Zostel to SEBI, OYO was required to transfer 7% of the equity to Zostel shareholders as part of the agreement. The agreement had also included a clause that till that agreement was executed, OYO would not be permitted to alter its capital structure. Zostel has alleged that this IPO, which was a combination of fresh issue and an offer for sale, was a clear alteration of capital.

In its letter to SEBI, Zostel has underlined that the IPO of Oravel Stays was in contravention of the ICDR regulations as OYO had not met the conditions for alteration of capital. Zostel also alleged that the investment bankers to the issue had done inadequate due diligence in putting up the IPO proposal to SEBI for approval.

Zostel and OYO have been fighting a pitched legal battle since the last 6 years. In Mar-21, a Supreme Court appointed arbitrator had ruled that OYO was in breach of the agreement for the acquisition of Zostel. It also added that Zostel was entitled to go ahead and execute the definitive agreement giving it legal sanction.

This arbitration order was challenged by OYO in the Delhi High Court and in response Zostel had filed an execution petition and a petition to restrain OYO from going ahead with the IPO. Zostel has already sent a notice to OYO to enforce the award which includes the transfer of 7% of shares of the current capital to the shareholders of Zostel. The case is coming up for hearing in the Delhi High Court on 21-Oct.

While OYO has dismissed these claims of Zostel as being fictitious, SEBI is likely to be wary of approving the DRHP if there are pending legal orders pertaining to the essence of the IPO. It looks like challenging times for OYO in the days ahead.
