Moneylife Digital Team 29 April 2024
On Monday, 2015 stocks advanced, 1894 declined and 179 remained unchanged, with an advance decline ratio of 1.06 on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), indicating positive closing of stocks in broader markets. 
The trend of the major indices on Monday’s trading is given in the table below. 
On NSE, 171 securities advanced and closed at a new 52-week high whereas 13 securities sank to close at their new 52-week lows.  In sectoral indices, Nifty PSU Bank, Nifty Energy and Nifty Infrastructure were among the biggest gainers. Nifty IT and Nifty Auto were among the biggest losers.
Shares of Apollo Hospitals Enterprises Ltd (AHEL) declined more than 8% during Monday's trading session  as it gears up for a Rs3,000 crore investment deal with Advent. This decline marks the largest single-day drop since March 2020, amidst the pandemic-induced sell-off. The deal, involving Apollo Health Company Limited (AHCL) (Apollo 24/7) and Keimed, India's prominent wholesale pharmaceutical distributor, will see Advent International invest Rs2,475 crore ($339 million) in equity capital. This investment, divided between Apollo HealthCo (59.2%), Keimed (25.7%), and Advent (12.1%), values the combined entity at an enterprise value of Rs22,481 Crores ($3 billion). Of the total Rs2,475 crore consideration, Rs860 crore will be used for the expansion of AHCL and Rs890 crore will be paid to the parent company AHEL. Advent will invest in compulsory convertible instruments over two tranches in the next 12 months. The capital infusion will facilitate Apollo 24/7's expansion and reduce cash burn, supporting future growth and integrating pharmacy distribution across over 70,000 stores. While the market responded with a drop in AHEL shares, the deal's strategic potential to unlock synergies and drive revenue growth remains significant, despite some concerns about valuation and perceived aggressive expansion.
BSE (-13.25%) witnessed a sharp 18% decline in morning trading on April 29th, following Sebi's directive to calculate regulatory fees based on the notional value of its options contracts rather than the premium value. This adjustment is anticipated to significantly impact BSE's financials, resulting in a substantial increase in its regulatory fee payment to Sebi due to the higher notional value compared to the premium value. Investors responded to this news by selling off shares, marking the largest single-day drop for the stock since its listing. While the correction was driven by this regulatory development, once BSE implements the change, normal operations are expected to resume. However, market sentiment remains cautious as BSE must settle the fees within a month, including interest at 15% per annum on any outstanding amounts.
