Q If the subsidiary gets listed, is it sure the parent firm will be re-rated, or will it suffer like holding companies?
Parimal Ade:

• For instance, HDFC Limited subsidiary is HDFC Bank and if HDFC Bank gets listed then it is estimated in the way that value unlock has happened for HDFC Limited. So based on the evaluation it will impact the valuation of HDFC Limited.
• We should see to it that the company is not going to become a pure holding company. We need to see the company which is having its own business. eg HDFC Ltd which is having an HDFC Housing Finance Business. Plus they are having subsidiaries also.
• In the above case, the discounting will not be more. If there is a pure holding company then there could be a good amount of discount.
• Normally the market expects 20% discounting but some companies are giving 40%,50%, and 60% discount.
• It is suggested that you need to invest in main companies. Ultimately that is going to evaluate the company.

• This is the sector that is having organic growth.
• There could be shifting of Unorganised sector to the organized sector so there could be a benefit for these 2 companies.

• We need to see when reliance retail is going to be listed.

Q Future of HDFC AMC?

AMC Business is going to have a good penetration business. But there is a concern about the growth in the margins.
