GNP Housing Finance-Carlyle agreement under SEBI scrutiny

“PNB would have 20 per cent stake and would be reduced to a smaller partner. Carlyle and PNB both have power to nominate 2 directors on the Board, however, the post of chairperson shall be nominated by Carlyle. Since, the chairperson shall have the casting vote (Article 109(b) of PNBHFL) in case of a tie, Carlyle is effectively controlling the board also,” SES said on Friday. Carlyle along with Persons Acting in Concert would hold more than 50 per cent stake in the company, which gives them controlling power, in terms of voting rights as per SEBI Takeover Code, SES said. SES has further said that PNB would be losing at least ₹2,000 crore in not insisting on a rights issue. PNB Housing board approved preferential allotment of shares worth ₹4000 crore to Carlyle.

PNB Housing said it was not giving control to Carlyle. But on Thursday, SES issued a clarification and rubbished PNB’s claim. SES says that the fact that PNB has not ceded control is technically and legally incorrect. SEBI has also asked stock exchanges to look into the deal and see if there are any other red flags, sources said. There is an internal feeling in SEBI that the deal should be studied by experts since serious questions have been raised, sources said.

“The Company wants investors to believe that even with book value per share of about ₹530, the proposed issue price is fair although book value indicates that the intrinsic value is quite higher than the issue price. If one observes P/E or P/BV ratio of private Housing Finance Companies (‘HFC’), this can easily be spotted,” SES said BV and intrinsic value
