Promoter Pledge Holding Update – June 2020

You are currently viewing Promoter Pledge Holding Update – June 2020

By Monergise

The promoter pledged shareholding has become one of the most crucial indicators to track while making an investment decision. It has taken centre stage in the recent past owing to carnage witnessed in some of the front line stocks having high promoter pledged holding. The ongoing COVID-19 can only add to the worries of these stocks if the businesses/promoters are not able to raise capital or revive business to reduce their pledge holding.


Therefore, it is important to keep a track on which of your invested companies have their promoter holding pledged. The below table depicts the companies in which the promoters have increased, decreased or maintained their pledged holding vis-a-vis last quarter. Our universe of stocks is companies in BSE500 index.

Before going through our table, let us understand why do promoters opt for it?

Promoter pledging their holding is never a good idea, but certain promoters do opt for it to gain faster access to capital (keeping its holdings as collateral).

The money is either used by the promoter himself (to fund its other businesses or personal requirement) or it would be used to fund business operations or expansions. In any case, it is not a good sign for any investor if the pledged holding exceeds 30% of the promoter holding in the business. At the time of pledging, the lender and the promoter agree on a minimum contract value for the shares, but if there is an adverse event in the market and the stock price falls sharply, the value of collateral also shrinks. The consequence of this is to either put more shares as collateral or repay the debt. However, if the promoter is not able to do this, the lender can sell the shares in the open market leading to a sharp fall in stock prices.

So let’s begin with the ones wherein promoters have increased their pledged holding during the quarter vis-à-vis last quarter. Luckily they aren’t many this quarter.
