DFCC & NDB about to begin preliminary talks on merger

Heavy trading in banking stock including both NDB and DFCC where a merger is contemplated, each of which gained Rs.8 on their share prices, helped sustain the upward momentum of the bourse yesterday, brokers and analysts said.

The All Share Price Index was up 13.80 points (0.23%) while S&P SL20 gained 22.12 points (0.66%) on a turnover of Rs.1.38 billion, down from the previous day’s Rs.1.57 billion, with 148 gainers comfortably outpacing 59 losers while 114 counters closed flat.

"The market was very active yesterday with banking stock and block trades accounting for nearly Rs.700 million of the day’s turnover," a broker said. ``Not surprising with all this talk of mergers and the acquisition of a stake in Union Bank by a foreign party.’’

There was a Stock Exchange announcement jointly made by the DFCC Bank and the NDB announcing that they are about to commence preliminary discussions with a view to achieving the consolidation encouraged by the government.

However, both stressed that there had been no definite decisions on any aspect of such consolidation and that final decisions would be dependent, amongst others, on arrangements being agreed keeping paramount interest of customers, employees, (including employees of DFCC Vardhana Bank) and other stakeholders.

``Moreover, consolidation of the two entities will be dependent on the regulatory approvals and by the passage of legislation, the filing said..

Yesterday’s block trades were in Chevron, Laugfs Gas, Richard Pieris, DFCC and JKH with the highest contributions to turnover coming from Chevron and JKH.

Chevron saw 1.8 million shares done in three parcels at Rs.273.80 contributing Rs.492.8 million to turnover while JKH saw two parcels totaling over 0.4 million shares crossed at Rs.232 contributing Rs.101.3 million to turnover.

Parcels of Richard Pieris (nearly 7.6 million shares) at Rs.6.50 contributing Rs.49.2 million to turnover, over 0.9 million Laugfs at Rs.30.60 contributing Rs.28.9 million and nearly 0.2 million DFCC at Rs.150 contributing Rs.27.7 million to turnover were also concluded.

NDB led the floor trades closing Rs.8 up at Rs.181 on over 0.3 million shares traded between Rs.173 and Rs.182 contributing Rs.59 million to turnover while The Finance (non-voting) followed with nearly 8.3 million shares done between Rs.5.90 and Rs.7.10 closing 80 cents up at Rs.6.80 and contributing Rs.54.5 million to turnover.

The Finance (voting) closed 30 cents up at Rs.12.60 on over 2.5 million shares done between Rs.11.90 and Rs.13.10 contributing Rs.31.6 million to turnover.

Other banking stock active yesterday included Commercial Bank (voting) up Rs.1.50 to close at Rs.126.50 on nearly 0.3 million shares, Union Bank up 70 cents to Rs.18.50 on 1.6 million shares, NTB up Rs.1.90 to Rs.66 on over 0.4 million shares and DFCC up Rs.8 to Rs.150 on nearly 0.2 million shares.

JKH warrants W0022 closed Rs.1.10 down at Rs.84 on nearly 0.3 million and W0023 closed Rs.2.50 down at Rs.89.60 on over 0.2 million.

JKH itself closed 50 cents down at Rs. 232 on 88,967 shares while Tokyo (voting) gained 60 cents to close at Rs.31.10 on nearly 0.5 million shares.

Senkadagala Finance announced a second interim dividend of 59 cents per share for 2013/14, XD from Jan. 22 and with payment on Jan. 31.

Not only banking all others they bought at lower rates during past. When market moves they will slowly release. If the upward continue they also will buy to support and release later.

Well I see many foreign buyers as investors and not short term traders. So their unloading may not happen until their target price is reached. When it does, it may be a crossing and not selling large numbers of shares in open market.

I think, their margins increased substancially, owing to; (a) declining prices of raw materials over- seas, (b) fairly stronger SLR recently, (c) advantage of local price control for cements, and (b) booming construction industry.
