    NSDL IPO Strengths:

    • As of March 31, 2023, NSDL was India’s first and foremost depository. It is also the country’s largest depository in terms of the market share in demat value of settlement volume, number of issuers, value of assets kept in custody and active instruments. As of March 31, 2023, it has an aggregate of 40,987 issuers registered on its system with an extensive network of 283 depository participants operating through 59,401 service centers across India.

    • NSDL has consistently invested in technology, enabling the development of a state-of-the-art depository system catering to diverse user groups such as depository participants, issuers, registrars, transfer agents, and clearing corporations. Its strong focus on technology-led product innovation has helped it expand its service capabilities, enhance user experience, and continue to remain relevant in the financial and securities market in India.

    • NSDL has implemented a comprehensive risk management system that seeks to develop appropriate risk management tools to address the material risks that the company may face. It has established a security operations center with round-the-clock operations to monitor, detect, analyse, eradicate and respond to any adverse cyber security events.

    • Its core depository services provides the company with a steady source of recurring revenues and stability to its business model. In addition to that, it generates recurring revenue from a range of other services. Its standalone and consolidated operational revenue per investor account as of March 31, 2023 was 130.05 and 324.82, respectively, significantly more than that of its rivals.

    • NSDL has a strong presence in the depository industry due to the wide range of asset types housed in its demat accounts. These accounts hold various asset classes, including equities (listed and unlisted), preference shares, warrants, funds (mutual funds, REITs, InvITs and AIFs), debt instruments, and electronic gold receipts. As of March 31, 2023, NSDL held approximately 84.03% and 88.39% of total securities in terms of numbers and values, respectively.

    NSDL IPO Risk Factors:

    • The company’s payments bank business involves high operating expenses leading to a high cost-to-income ratio. It needs to efficiently increase the volume of its transactions and improve its cost to income ratio leading to wider margins of income and the resultant profitability. If it is not able to manage its operations without significantly addressing its operating costs, it may not be commercially viable for the company to operate its payments bank business which may adversely affect its revenue from operations and cashflow.

    • SEBI regularly conducts inspection and investigations in relation to NSDL’s operations. It has in the past been subject to enforcement actions by way of issuance of show cause notices from SEBI in relation to certain alleged violations/ non-compliances of relevant SEBI laws by the company. There are certain outstanding regulatory proceedings against the company as well. Such proceedings could divert management time and attention, and consume financial resources in their defence or prosecution.

    • The company has had experienced negative cash flows from operations in the recent past, and suggests possibility of may having negative cash flows in the future. The results of operations and financial condition could suffer from any additional negative cash flows, and the firm cannot guarantee that its net cash flows will be positive in the future.

    • There are outstanding legal proceedings (tax proceedings, statutory or regulatory proceedings and material civil litigations) involving NSDL, its directors, its subsidiaries and its group companies. These proceedings are pending at different levels of adjudication before various judicial authorities, from which further liability may arise. Further, an unfavourable outcome in any of these proceedings, may adversely affect its reputation, prospects and financial condition.

    • As of March 31, 2023, NSDL had contingent liabilities amounting to 138.56 crores which have not been provided for. Further, there may be additional liabilities on account of interest and/or penalties on the demands from regulatory authorities. In the event that these contingent liabilities do materialize, it could have an adverse impact on the company’s financial health, cash flows, and results of operations.
