Government Is Reportedly Set Up To Privatize Some State-Owned Companies

The government is set to try a new approach to stake sales in state-owned companies from early 2015-2016. Business Standard has learnt the finance ministry’s department of disinvestment (DoD) has in its new rolling list included almost all PSUs, among them those in which the government’s stakes need to be brought down to 75% in the next two and a half years. While yearly targets for disinvestment will likely be set in the Budget as usual, the DoD will choose from a basket of companies to meet them based on market conditions and ease of regulatory approvals. “We are first looking to divest companies in which the public shareholding can be taken up to 25% in one tranche. After that we will look at companies that require multiple tranches to bring down the Centre’s stake to 75%,” said a senior government official who did not wish to be named. Some of the companies in which government holds more than 75% stakes include Coal India Limited (BSE:533278), National Aluminium Co. Ltd. (BSE:532234), NHPC Ltd. (BSE:533098), NMDC Limited (BSE:526371), Indian Tourism Development Corporation, MMTC Ltd. (BSE:513377) and National Fertilizers Ltd. (BSE:523630). Although Coal India and NHPC are part of the roadmap for 2014-15 and may be divested by January 2015, the Centre will have to go in for another 5% stake sale in the former after a 10% divestment brings down its shareholding to 80%. Some PSUs like HMT Ltd. (BSE:500191) and Scooters India Ltd. (BSE:505141) are making losses and thus are candidates for complete divestment or winding up. However, officials did not speak on this issue and said it was a separate matter being examined by the department of public enterprises, reported Business Standard. The DoD will take blanket Cabinet approvals, even for companies whose stake sales may be more than a year down the line. Sources said the whole process, starting with selecting merchant bankers and ending with a stake sale, might be compressed into just a month. “If the government and the company in question provide enough manpower, the roadshows can be completed in a week. That is what the DoD is planning,” a second official said. He added the DoD would not announce the companies' names beforehand and each proposed stake sale would become public only when the department put up RFPs on its website. The aim, according to officials, is to give stock market bears as little time to react as possible.
