Through this IPO, its existing promoter Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) is selling 3.52 crore shares to public due to which its stake in CDSL will reduce to 24 per cent from 50.1 per cent currently. The objective of the IPO is also to get the benefits of listing.

Anchor Investors: CDSL raised 154.07 crore by issuing 1.03 crore equity shares to 15 anchor investors – SBI Magnum Tax Gain Scheme, ICICI Prudential, HSBC Indian Equity Mother Fund, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority–Behave, FIL Investments (Mauritius), Goldman Sachs India etc.



  • CDSL does not has the flexibility to increase its fees as and when its costs go up as these are regulated by market regulator Sebi, which is a key risk in the business of CDSL.
  • Appointment of CERSAI as central KYC registration agency may have a significant adverse impact on the business prospects and result of operations of its subsidiary, CDSL Ventures.
  • A large proportion of company’s business is transaction-based and dependent on trading volumes.
