Financial Technologies of India Ltd (FTIL) has begun the process of selling its 23 per cent stake in MCX-SX Clearing Corporation in order to comply with market regulator Sebi’s order.
Sebi had directed FTIL to divest its shareholding in several entities including MCX-SX Clearing Corporation Ltd.
FTIL has floated an expression of interest (EoI) from entities interested in acquiring its 23 per cent stake in MCX-SX CCL.
In a public notice issued today, FTIL has invited expression of interest to acquire part or full of its 23 per cent stake (amounting to 57.5 lakh shares) in MCX-SX CCL.
The interested candidates are required to forward their bids along with a minimum price per share of not less than Rs 10 apiece by September 22 this year.
After the Rs 5,500 crore settlement crisis at the National Spot Exchange Ltd (NSEL) came to light in July 2013, Securities and Exchange Board of India, in an order passed in March 2014, declared FTIL unfit to hold stake in any exchange or clearing corporation.
NSEL, in which FTIL had majority stake, suspended operations in August 2013.
