NSE is unlikely to join the IPO bandwagon this year. Here’s why ?
A buzz around the likely initial public offering of National Stock Exchange (NSE) lifted the prices of peers such as Indian Energy Exchange, MCX and BSE.
There are ample roadblocks in NSE’s IPO path and the company has not yet taken clearance or moved to file its (draft red herring prospectus) DRHP.
NSE’s IPO could be pushed back to fast-track the initial offer of LIC, which is the primary focus of the government. LIC’s IPO has to happen in the current financial year and one should not be surprised if it knocks the door after the budget. This may postpone the IPO of NSE, maybe to the next financial year.
