Update On Government Stake Sale In REC & PFC

The Government is reportedly set to sell 5% in Rural Electrification Corporation Limited (BSE:532955) on April 8, 2015 followed by the sale of 5% stake in Power Finance Corporation Limited (BSE:532810) next week. The Government plans to sell the stake through an offer for sale on the stock exchanges. The sale will help the Government raise INR 35 billion.

Government Of India Mulls Privatization Of State-Owned Companies

The government of Indian is seeking privatization of Public Utility Companies. The government could launch the disinvestment programme for 2015-2016 as early as the second week of April, provided market conditions remain favourable. It is likely to choose between a power sector and heavy industry firm for the first issue, a senior government official said. The disinvestment department is in a position to start early, having secured the Cabinet approval for stake sales in 10 companies, including Steel Authority of India Limited (BSE:500113), Coal India Limited (BSE:533278), Power Finance Corporation Limited (BSE:532810), Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd. (BSE:500103) (BHEL), Rural Electrification Corporation Limited (BSE:532955) and NHPC Ltd. (BSE:533098). "So far, our strategy has been to surprise the markets. We have issues such as National Aluminium Co. Ltd. (BSE:532234) (Nalco) and NMDC Limited (BSE:526371) (NMDC) in our kitty. In an interview to Economic Times after the budget, Disinvestment Secretary Aradhana Johri had said that she faced a big challenge in FY 2016. "We will have 12 issues ready for disinvestment in FY2015-2016 but we will need to see market conditions. There are some constraints," she said. Besides smaller issues, the disinvestment department also has approval for 10% stake sale in Indian Oil Corporation Limited (BSE:530965) (IOC) and 5% in Oil and Natural Gas Corp. Ltd. (BSE:500312) (ONGC), which may fetch it around INR 210 billion at current market prices. "But the time is not conducive for stake sale in oil firms such as ONGC or IOC because of the global situation and also because of subsidy issues," said the official. Earlier this month, Minister of State for Finance, Jayant Sinha had told the Lok Sabha that the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs has approved sale of equity in four state-owned companies, including ONGC and NMDC, which may fetch the exchequer INR 225.74 billion. In a written reply, Jayant Sinha had said that based on the current market valuations, a 5% stake sale in ONGC could yield INR 132.17 billion while a 10% sale each in NMDC and Nalco would fetch about INR 50.38 billion and INR 11.9 billion, respectively. Jayant Sinha added that a 5% stake sale in BHEL could yield as much as INR 31.29 billion.
