MMTC Board Approves Stake Sale In ICEX

MMTC Ltd. (BSE:513377) informed the Bombay Stock Exchange that its board has approved the proposal for sale of 10% stake in Indian Commodity Exchange Limited (ICEX). Acting as an advisor for this transaction, Yes Bank Limited (BSE:532648) issued an express of interest (EoI) in August 2015 for sale of MMTC's full or part stake in ICEX. The minimum reserve price and the minimum number of shares to be acquired in the proposed bidding by bidders shall be INR 10 per share and 2 million shares (equivalent to 1% shareholding in ICEX) respectively. According to the announcement, only two bidders participated in the global EoI and both were selected. Ramesh Shetty, spokesperson of ICEX and Kanishka Garg of Yes Bank did not divulge details of the deal. While Shetty termed the deal being private between two parties, Garg said, "The deal is not yet approved and hence, it is premature to say anything."

We expect potential buyers to come to us soon." The FMC official said ICEX is also considering a rights issue as part of a plan to revive the exchange.
