At the closing bell, Sensex closed down by 555.15 points or 0.93% at 59,189.73, and the Nifty 50 slumped by 176.30 points or 0.99% at 17,646.

Domestic equity benchmarks snapped the two-day winning momentum on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, due to loss incurred in global markets as oil prices hit the highest level in seven years, and concerns about rising inflation.

At the closing bell, Sensex closed down 555.15 points or 0.93% at 59,189.73, and the Nifty 50 slumped by 176.30 points or 0.99% at 17,646. On the bourses today, around 1291 shares have advanced, 1754 shares declined, and 115 shares are unchanged.

Most of the sectoral indices ended in the red with capital goods, metal, IT, pharma, realty, auto and PSU Bank indices falling by 1-3%. BSE midcap and smallcap indices shredded 0.5-1.2% in Wednesday's trading session.

Top losers in Wednesday's trading session include Hindalco Industries, SBI Life Insurance, IndusInd Bank, JSW Steel and Tata Steel. Among the top gainers were, Tata Consumer Products, ONGC, UPL, Britannia Industries and HDFC Bank.

According to markets experts, weak global markets which resulted in profit booking in IT and metals stocks led domestic benchmark indices to trade in red, cutting their early gains. Also, the rise in crude prices is spooking the market, while inflation is affecting US bond yields.

On the major events of the day, the RBI commenced its three-day MPC meeting in which the central bank is expected to keep rates unchanged. But will it announce measures to gradually pump out liquidity from the economy, is the topic of discussion from an investment point of view.

Zee says open to rival offers as founder Chandra questions Invesco’s intent

by 5paisa Research Team 06/10/2021

Could the bitter battle between Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd and some of its minority shareholders get any worse? Well, if the latest news reports are any indication, it possibly could. 

A Bloomberg report says that Zee would be open to rival offers even though it thinks that the planned merger with the Indian unit of Sony Corp is the best deal on the table. 

“This is the best deal for shareholders at this point in time as we are interested in maximization of values for all our stakeholders including shareholders, the company and consuming public," Zee chairman R. Gopalan said in a Bloomberg Television interview, adding that the company is open to “consider if there is another deal on the table”. 

What have Zee’s minority investors done to thwart the merger with Sony?

US asset manager Invesco, through its funds Invesco Developing Markets Fund and OFI China Global LLC, has called for a meeting of the company’s shareholders. After Zee refused to hold the meeting, the two shareholders approached the Bombay High Court, where the entertainment company, in turn, filed a suit, asking that the notice for a meeting be declared illegal. 

So, do Gopalan’s latest comments indicate Zee is climbing down?

That may appear to be the case, at least prima facie. But in fact, Zee is unlikely to back away from the deal with Sony, as the debt-laden company is not likely to find any other suitor of a comparable size, at least in the foreseeable future. 

Moreover, Zee Group founder Subhash Chandra has questioned the minority shareholders on their stand. “No matter who runs Zee but the company, to which I’ve and many of my friends have given their blood and sweat for the past 30 years, should be in the hands of someone under whose leadership the organisation should prosper and shareholders should be benefitted since I don’t have any profit or loss associated with this,” Chandra has said.  

Chandra also raised doubts over Invesco’s intentions. “Invesco is a good investor but in this case they are not revealing that what they will do after taking Zee, and in whose hands management will go?”

“You want to remove Punit Goenka? Okay, fine but what next? Have you done any deal with someone? The six directors given by them - what's their background? Do they have any relation with any particular company that wants to take over? Hence, Invesco should come out transparently and openly, and let the shareholders decide - whether they want to take the deal of Invesco or want to go with Sony's deal,” he said. 

What really are the demands by the minority shareholders?

The Invesco funds want the ouster of Zee board members including chief executive officer Punit Goenka, who is leading the talks with Sony. About 53% of the merged entity would be owned by Sony and the rest by Zee’s holders, according to the non-binding agreement signed last month.

What are the contours of the deal?

As part of the deal, unanimously agreed to, in principle, by the Zee board, Sony Pictures Networks India will effectively hold a 52.93% stake in the merged entity, while the remaining 47.07% will remain with Zee shareholders. 

Why is Sony the majority owner here?

This is because SPN India, Sony’s India entertainment arm, is investing an additional $1.5 billion, or Rs 11,615 crore, to capitalise the merged entity. This money will allow the new entity to grow its business further. Had Sony not infused more cash, Zee shareholders would have held a 61.25% stake. 

The merged entity will effectively own the biggest suite of entertainment content services in India, bypassing Disney India and Star India. It will also be bigger than Viacom 18, the joint venture of billionaire Mukesh Ambani’s Network 18 Group and US-based ViacomCBS.

Interestingly, Sony and Viacom18 were engaged in merger discussions but scrapped the talks last year as the Ambani-led group reportedly wanted a majority stake in the combined entity.

Moody’s ups outlook for banks, companies but retains negative view on this PSU

by 5paisa Research Team 06/10/2021

In some welcome news for India Inc, global ratings firm Moody’s has upped the rating outlook for nine Indian banks and nearly two dozen companies from “negative” to “stable”.

The banks that have been given an upgrade are Axis Bank, Bank of Baroda, Canara Bank, HDFC Bank, ICICI Bank, Punjab National Bank, Export-Import Bank of India, State Bank of India (SBI) and Union Bank of India.

Apart from banks, Moody’s also changed its outlook to stable for several non-bank lenders. These include Housing and Urban Development Corp, Indian Railway Finance Corporation, Indian Renewable Energy Developement Agency Ltd, Power Finance Corporation, REC Ltd and Hero FinCorp Ltd.

Other companies whose outlook has been changed include Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys Ltd, Reliance Industries Ltd, ONGC Ltd, Petronet LNG Ltd, Ultratech Cement, Oil India Ltd, Indian Oil and Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd.

Apart from these, at least 10 infrastructure majors have also seen an upgrade in their outlook. These include NTPC Ltd, National Highways Authority of India, Power Grid Corp of India Ltd, Gail (India) Ltd, Azure Power and several Adani group companies including Adani Green Energy, Adani Transmission, Adani Ports and Special Economic Zones, Adani Electricity Mumbai and Adani International Container Terminal. 

What prompted Moody’s to take such a step?

The upgrade follows the agency upping the country’s sovereign credit rating outlook on Tuesday from “negative” to “stable”. 

“The decision to change the outlook to stable reflects Moody's view that the downside risks from negative feedback between the real economy and financial system are receding,” the ratings firm said. 

Simply put, Moody’s thinks that an economic recovery is on the cards, and that India could be coming out of the shackles of successive lockdowns that had seen the country register its worst macroeconomic numbers and a full-blown recession for the first time in four decades. 

Has Moody’s changed India's actual rating?

No, it hasn’t. It has kept India’s sovereign rating at Baa3. This is the lowest investment grade and is just one notch above junk.

While Moody’s hasn’t changed the rating itself, the fact that it revised the outlook to stable means the risk of India’s rating falling to junk has receded. The government, meanwhile, has been pushing rating firms to upgrade India’s sovereign rating.

Are there any companies whose outlook remains negative?

Yes, there is at least one. Moody’s says its outlook on state-run Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd remains negative. This decision reflects “the uncertainty around its ownership, capital structure, liquidity and management control given the ongoing process by the government to divest its entire stake in the company”.

The government has selected the state-run refiner for privatisation and aims to sell the company to a private-sector buyer in the current financial year. The sale, in fact, could lead to a downgrade in BPCL’s rating.

“Given the negative outlook, a rating upgrade is unlikely. A change in outlook to stable will require the conclusion of the sale of government stake in the company such that the support incorporated in BPCL's rating is maintained,” Moody’s said.

“On the other hand, the rating will be downgraded if the government sells its entire stake resulting in elimination of the support incorporated in the rating. A sale of government’s entire stake in BPCL to a buyer with weak credit quality or significant credit negative changes to BPCL's post-acquisition capital structure or financial profile could also put downward pressure on the rating,” Moody’s added.
