Cross-subsidization by NSE has limited monetization opportunities for BSE in the Star MF, INX, and Commodity Derivatives segments in the near term. This was primarily due to a decrease in turnover by 26% YoY in the Equity Cash segment (special rate group) in 1QFY21 and one- While total expenditure of INR1.0b was lower than estimated, overall decline in revenues resulted in largely in-line EBITDA (v/s estimates). NSEs competitive pricing has impacted BSEs ability to charge in the Star MF, INX, and Commodity Derivatives segments.

BSE cash market share has slipped to 6.4% vs ~13/9% in FY18/19 and currency derivative segment is also facing tough competition. Investments in INX and newer initiatives (commodity & Insurance distribution) have impacted EBITDA margins (1.1% in 9MFY20, down ~7% YoY). We expect revenue growth of 12.0/10.4% in FY21/22E led by rebound in transaction revenue (better market condition, StAR MF and INX contribution). We expect operating leverage to play out with growth (EBITDA margin of 8.8/14.2% for FY21/22E). BSE has net cash of Rs ~20bn (~77% of MCap) and a dividend yield of ~5%, which limits downside. Risks include rise in competition, loss of market share and increase in investments. We maintain NEU on BSE based on revenue and margin miss in 3QFY20. The core revenue stream is under pressure, margin is in the negative territory due to ongoing investments in new initiatives (INX). BSE cash market share has declined to 6.4% but StAR MF platform is witnessing continued traction. We arrive at a SoTP based TP of Rs 590 by assigning 15x multiple to core Dec-21E PAT (Rs 46/sh), Rs 105/sh for the CDSL stake and adding net cash (Rs 439/sh).

BSE is witnessing continuous decline in core business metrics. Cash market share has slipped to 6.7% vs ~13/9% in FY18/19 and currency derivative is also under pressure. Continued investments in INX and newer initiatives (commodity & Insurance distribution) have impacted EBITDA margins (2.1% in 1HFY20, down ~10% YoY). We expect revenue growth of 12.8/0.3% in FY21/22E led by rebound in transaction revenue (better market condition, StAR MF and INX contribution). We expect some operating leverage to play out with growth (EBITDA margin of 12.0/16.5% for FY21/22E). BSE has net cash of Rs ~20bn (~82% of MCap) and a dividend yield of ~6%, which limits downside. Risks include a rise in competition, loss of market share and an increase in investments. We maintain NEU on BSE based on unexciting 2QFY20. The core revenue stream remains under pressure while new age platform like StAR MF is doing well. Margin expansion will come with growth. We arrive at a SoTP based TP of Rs 585 by assigning 25x to core Sep-21E PAT (Rs 122/sh), Rs 111/sh for the CDSL stake and adding net cash after 20% discount (Rs 351/sh).

BSE has been investing in future growth drivers like INX, Insurance distribution, SME and StAR MF. Out of these only StAR MF has started generating revenue while the rest would need more time. Incremental revenue from StAR MF, volume revival and higher listing fee should lead to revenue growth of 11.1/11.8% in FY20/21E. We expect some operating leverage to play out with growth (EBITDA margin of 11.4/15.8% for FY20/21E). The stock is down 23% in the last 3M due to stress in the tradition revenue stream, continued investments despite slowdown and buyback tax. Value is emerging with net cash of Rs 20bn (~80% of MCap) and a dividend yield of ~7%. Risks include a rise in competition, loss of market share and an increase in investments. We maintain BUY on BSE based on in-line revenue and better margins. Increasing revenue contribution from StAR MF platform and rise in listing fee (exclusively listed) are positives. Buyback of Rs 4.6bn will be completed and tax applicable is only Rs 0.12bn (~3%). We arrive at a SoTP of Rs 655 at 25x core FY21E PAT plus Rs 134/share for stake in CDSL plus net-cash (ex-buyback and with 20% discount).

2 November 2018 consolidated operating revenues grew 1.2% YoY to INR1.12b, below our estimate of INR1.2b. The miss was on account of lower other revenues which includes Rent, Training, Recovery charges, etc. Operating revenues exclude Treasury Income from Clearing Corporation. EBITDA at INR93m was below our estimate of INR167m, but included one-time charges totaling INR74m from  provision for investment in IL&FS;, and  provision for bad debts. Adjusted for the same, EBITDA would have been in line. PAT was INR459m (-31% YoY), 12% miss, which again would have been in line adjusted for the one-offs. revenue grew 1% YoY, revenues from equity cash transactions fell 33% YoY to INR218m, owing to prevailing market conditions.

BSE has started charging 32 of the 37 asset management companies (AMCs) for services through its mutual fund (MF) platform. This could be an INR150m-200mrevenue opportunity in the next fiscal; however,being the first year, we are currently modeling INR100m revenues from the segment. With ~50% of equity transaction revenues from exclusive segments, dependence one quity transactions where BSE is a distant second to NSE, is <15%. BSE cited that volumes in the exclusively-listed segment are inelastic to transaction charges, and hence, it does not feel the need to reduce the current fee. We note that BSE should be paying out 85%+ of its non-exceptional profits as dividends. And any buybacks like the one currently underway will be over and above the dividends. The combination will keep yields attractive (currently ~5%)
