Ujjivan Financial Services Shares Locked in 20% Upper Circuit. Here's Why

Jul 12, 2021

Shares of Ujjivan Financial Services rallied up to 20% on the BSE in the intra-day trade today.

This after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) allowed small finance banks (SFBs) and respective holding companies to apply for the amalgamation scheme.

According to SFB licensing guidelines, a promoter of small finance bank can exit or cease to be a promoter after the mandatory initial lock-in period of five years. This depends on the RBI's regulatory and supervisory comfort and regulations at that time.

Ujjivan is set to complete five years of business operations.

Though the SFBs are required to dilute promoter shareholding to less than 40% within five years, this scheme of amalgamation will give an exit route to the promoters and collapse the holding company structure.

Ujjivan Finance currently owns 83% stake in underlying SFB. Thus, Ujjivan is required to dilute its stake in underlying bank by 31 January 2022.

Ujjivan small finance bank will merge with holding company

Ujjivan Small Finance Bank said it would initiate steps for the amalgamation of the holding company Ujjivan Financial Services with the bank.

The decision to merge the holding company with itself comes after the RBI's approval.

In a statement, the bank said,

  • We are pleased to inform you that RBI vide its letter dated 9 July 2021 has informed the said association (of small finance banks of India) that it has decided to permit small finance banks and respective holding companies to apply for the amalgamation of holding company with small finance bank, in terms of provisions of master direction on amalgamation of private sector banks, directions, 2016 dated 21 April 2016, three months prior to completing five years from the date of commencement of business of small finance bank.

Equitas also set to merge holding company with small finance bank

Equitas Holding, the promoter of Equitas Small Finance Bank, on Saturday said the RBI has allowed it to file for a scheme of amalgamation of the promoter entity with the bank.

Currently, both Equitas Holding and Equitas Small Finance Bank are listed on the stock exchanges. Equitas Holdings holds an 82% stake in the bank.

In case of Equitas Small Finance Bank, subsidiary for which the company is the promoter, the said initial promoter lock-in for the company expires on 4 September 2021.

Hence, the bank had requested RBI if a scheme of amalgamation of the company with the bank, resulting in exit of the promoter, can be submitted to RBI for approval, prior to the expiry of the said five years, to take effect after the initial promoter lock-in expires.

What merger with holding companies mean for investors

The investors of holding company will get the shares of listed SFB through a share swap ratio and the holding companies will thus cease to exist. In this process, the approval of RBI, market regulator and national company law tribunal (NCLT) is required.

Currently, holding companies of Equitas and Ujjivan Bank are trading at 35%/43% discount to their fair value.

For Equitas Holdings, the trading discount since listing has been the range of 24%-54% while for Ujjivan Financial Services, the holding discount has been in the range of 33%-57%.

Thus, the amalgamation scheme would help unlock significant value for the shareholders of the respective holding companies as the holding company discount narrows.

However, the fair value for the investors would depend on the swap ratio which would be key to monitor.
