The bourse has been ranked fourth in the world in terms of the number of cash trades by the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) for Calendar 2020.

NSE, after its incorporation in 1992, was recognised as a stock exchange by SEBI in April 1993 and commenced operations in 1994 with the launch of the wholesale debt market, followed shortly by the launch of the cash market segment.

NSE unlisted shares market valuation

The National Stock Exchange (NSE) of India is the most valuable unlisted company in India.

NSE Ltd share price is approx Rs 3000 per equity share. Based on this price, Market Capitalisation (mcap) of NSE comes to Rs 147000 crore.

Sebi clears appointment of BSE’s Ashish Kumar Chauhan as NSE chief – 18 July 2022

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) has cleared Ashish Kumar Chauhan’s candidature for the post of managing director (MD) and chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Stock Exchange (NSE). He is currently the MD & CEO of the BSE. Vikram Limaye demitted the office of MD & CEO of the NSE on 16 July 2022.

The NSE has nearly a monopoly in the equity derivatives segment, while in the cash segment, it has more than 90 per cent market share. The BSE has lost market share in the equity cash segment to the NSE from 17 per cent in FY17 to below 8 per cent in FY22. Since the Covid pandemic, trading volumes, revenue growth, and profitability at the NSE have sky-rocketed due to the surge in the markets and a spurt in new investors.

A feather in Chauhan’s cap will be if the NSE is able to push through with its initial public offering (IPO), which has been stuck due to the exchange’s regulatory troubles.

IPO Coming Soon : 

Trading in the shares of the National Stock Exchange is gaining traction ahead of its initial public offer (IPO). Investors are extremely bullish on the country’s largest stock exchange. They swear by the sound fundamentals and growth prospects of NSE, which has been eyeing a listing for some time now.

Earnings per share is Rs 105. Rival BSE, with a much smaller market share, slower growth in revenues, and less than half the operating profit margin, is quoting at roughly 40 times trailing earnings.

Using the same yardstick, NSE unlisted share price should be or valued to be worth Rs 4000 apiece, not factoring its dominant market position and better return ratios.

The gap between the fair value and NSE grey market price can be explained by the uncertainty over when the bourse will eventually go public.

National Stock Exchange had in December 2016 filed a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) but Sebi put the application on hold following the co-locations case probe. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) may finally give in-principle approval to the Rs 10,000-crore initial public offering (IPO) of National Stock Exchange.


NSE shares trade at around Rs 3,000 per share. The Mumbai-based exchange has more than 95 percent market share in the derivatives segment and almost 90 percent in the cash segment. The stock exchange may get listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange.

The Bombay Stock Exchange and the Multi Commodity Exchange are already listed on the bourses. Recently, the National Commodity Derivative Exchange, a subsidiary of the NSE, got the Sebi go-ahead for an IPO. The bourse holds a 15 percent stake in NCDEX.

The number of new investor registrations in India witnessed a substantial growth in 2020, with 70 lakh new registrations, being the highest in a calendar year and 2.3 times the number of registrations that took place in 2019.

NSE’s capital market segment’s average daily turnover grew 57 per cent last year. Also, transaction volumes through mobile and internet-based platforms surged, accounting for 35 per cent of total cash market turnover.

The stock is hot favorite among HNIs, domestic and foreign institutions and retail investors due to near monopoly status and high entry barriers. With a near-monopoly status and lowest charges, NSE has the potential to gain substantially from here on. It can be the biggest story of Indian stock market in the next few decades. Addition of the newly opened demat accounts signals a significant surge in performance.

National Stock Exchange (NSE) is the undisputed leader and is the best way to take exposure to India’s capital market.

FY21/22 are two of the best years for Capital Markets in terms of growth in volumes, increased participation from investors and listing of new companies.

Most of NSE’s expenditure is towards technological advancement. So the company will receive the valuation of a Fintech rather than an exchange operator.

Moreover, the National Stock Exchange doesn’t have any business cyclicality, which shows its inherent benefits for long-term investors.

India has witnessed one of the highest growth rates in Demat account opening and NSE active clients in the last 2- years due to online account opening (onboarding) of clients. Now investors can open demat account in just less than 5 minutes with the help of digital technology.

Various popular brokers like Zerodha, Upstox, Groww have disrupted the market with their superb technology and contributed to boosting volumes on the stock exchanges. This will in turn benefit stock exchanges like NSE and BSE.

Product innovations and multiple regulations led to sharp increase in option contribution to the transaction income.

With final judgement on Colocation case around the corner, NSE is likely to get listed in the foreseeable future.

Given that Asian peers HKEX and SGX trade at 30-35x 1yr fwd. EPS and MCX is trading at 34x FY24 EPS, we believe NSE, for its market dominance, can be valued at 35x FY24 Core EPS implying a target price of Rs 3,950

Moreover, with favorable macros, there is a durable long-term growth opportunity in NSE. Further, NSE’s efforts to diversify revenue from equities (GIFT city, Data, Index License, IT & Education subsidiaries, and other securities like currency) should reduce the cyclicality. Fixed cost model and cash-rich balance sheet are other USPs of this business model which shall result in EBIDTA/PAT margin expansion.
