SEBI explores ways for direct listing of Indian firms abroad

Published on June 15, 2018
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has geared up to make direct listing of Indian companies in overseas markets possible.
  • The market regulator has formed a panel of experts to frame rules for making it possible for a company incorporated in India to list its equity share capital on foreign exchanges.
  • To this date, direct listing of a company incorporated in India is not possible on a foreign exchange and vice versa.
  • The panel will consist of nine members.
  • In the evolving and internationally connected capital markets of today, it seems to be a good idea to facilitate companies incorporated in India to directly list their equity share capital abroad and vice versa.
  • The only option for Indian firms to list on overseas exchanges, currently is the depository receipts route which has: American Depository Receipt (ADR) or Global Depository Receipt (GDR).
  • Similarly, for foreign companies wanting to list on Indian exchanges, the Indian Depository Receipt (IDR) is the only option currently.
  • However, the companies incorporated in India can list their debt securities (masala bonds) on international exchanges.
