Sebi board approves phasing out shares buyback through stock exchanges
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) board on Tuesday approved phasing out of buybacks through stock exchanges, along with chalking out of governance mechanisms for addressing lapses at market infrastructure institutions (MIIs) like stock exchanges, depositories, and clearing houses. “We feel the tender route is a more equitable one for buybacks. The other route is vulnerable to favouritism. Except a few, no one knows when the company buyback is going to happen,” Sebi Chairperson Madhabi Puri Buch said after the board meeting. The regulator has given its go-ahead to increase the minimum utilisation of the amount earmarked for buyback through the stock exchange way, from the existing 50 per cent to 75 per cent, until the route is completely phased out by March 2025. Buybacks will be undertaken through a separate window on stock exchanges until then. Sebi will also permit the upward revision of the buyback price until one working day before the record date.
Power demand to fall in H2, gencos’ receivables to go up: Fitch Ratings
Growth in the country’s power demand is likely to slow down in the second half of the financial year ending March 2023 (H2FY23), after a robust 11.3 per cent year-on-year (YoY) growth in the first half of the year (H1FY23), Fitch Ratings said in a report released on Tuesday. Estimates by Fitch and power analysts Business Standard spoke to suggest that the second half of the year could see power demand grow in the region of 7-8 per cent versus the corresponding period last year. For the full year of FY23, Fitch analysts Geetika Gupta and Girish Madan say that power demand will grow in the region of 8 per cent versus 8.2 per cent seen in FY22. While a slowdown in demand hardly bodes well for power companies, the good part is that the receivables of power generating companies (gencos) will improve this year as power distribution companies (discoms) begin clearing their dues, Gupta and Madan said. “Discoms’ total outstanding dues to gencos have been above Rs 1 trillion since September 2020. The government expects discoms to clear all dues by 2026 under the Late Payment Surcharge (LPS) Rules,” they said.
India GDP grew by 9.7% in H1FY23, says Finance Ministry
India’s gross domestic product growth in the first half of the current fiscal year averaged at 9.7 per cent, the finance ministry said in its mid-year expe¬nditure and revenue state¬ment on Tuesday. The ministry said it could not present the medium-term expenditure framework (MTEF)¬, as mandated by the Fiscal Respon¬sibility and Budget Manage¬ment Act, because the global macro-economic situation disrupted the government’s projections. “India’s economic growth, measured by growth in GDP at constant prices, has been estimated at 9.7 per cent for the first half (April-September) of FY23, as compared to 13.7 per cent in H1FY22 and 4.7 per cent in H2 of FY22,” the ministry said. On the MTEF, it said the FRBM Act states that if any deviation is made in meeting the fiscal obligations cast on the central government under this Act, the minister-in-charge of the finance ministry shall make a statement in both Houses of Parliament explaining any deviation in meeting the obligations.
