BNP expects challenging 2017 for India M&A deals as stocks rally
June, 06th 2017

Sensex and Nifty 50 are valued at about 23 times reported profits, versus a multiple of 15.5 for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, making the M&A deals expensive

India’s booming stock market has a downside—it is making mergers and acquisitions (M&As) expensive as valuations stay elevated, according to BNP Paribas SA.

The S&P BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty 50 gauges have posted records this year, making local shares more expensive than a benchmark of developing markets.

The indexes are valued at about 23 times reported profits, versus a multiple of 15.5 for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index.

“The positive market scenario in India makes it challenging for private equity and M&A transactions as valuation expectations have gone up,” said Ganeshan Murugaiyan, head of BNP Paribas’s investment banking in the country.

Indian companies completed deals worth $32.5 billion since 1 January, compared with $83.5 billion in 2016, which was the highest in at least 12 years, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

A buoyant market for initial and secondary offerings will help counter what is likely to be a slow year for M&A transactions, said Murugaiyan.

Share sales from “consumer-led stories such as financial services, consumer goods and retailing will see good demand as they are a proxy for the expanding economy,” Murugaiyan said. Companies saddled with debt in the power and infrastructure sectors will “face a challenge as investors are not comfortable” with the businesses, he said.

Companies raised Rs27,600 crore ($4.3 billion) via initial public offerings on the BSE Ltd. in the year ended March, the highest since 2010, data from the exchange show.

The bourse is betting that the start of a unified sales tax from 1 July may prompt smaller companies to sell shares to the public as they become more tax-compliant and transparent.

Domestic and foreign funds have this year poured a combined $12 billion into India’s stock market amid optimism Prime Minister Narendra Modi will deliver on his agenda to make it easier to do business in Asia’s third-largest economy.

The Sensex is up 18% this year, the region’s best performer after South Korea’s Kospi index. “Fund flows have been good and it is more of a momentum buying than value buying in Indian equities,” Murugaiyan said. Bloomberg
