What does the lack of institutional ownership of Banco (India) products tell us?

We don’t tend to see institutional investors owning stocks of very risky, lightly traded or very small companies. Although we sometimes see large companies without institutions listed on the register, this is not particularly common.

There are many reasons why a company may not have institutions listed in the share register. It can be difficult for institutions to buy large amounts of shares if liquidity (the amount of shares traded each day) is low. If the company did not need to raise capital, institutions might not have the opportunity to build a position. On the other hand, it’s always possible for professional investors to avoid a company because they think it’s not the best place for their money. Banco Products (India) may not have the type of past performance that institutions seek, or perhaps they just haven’t researched the business closely.

Hedge funds don’t have a lot of shares in Banco Products (India). Our data shows that Mehul Patel is the largest shareholder with 54% of shares outstanding. With such a stake in ownership, we infer that they have significant control over the future of the business. Meanwhile, the second and third largest shareholders hold 7.0% and 2.1% of the outstanding shares respectively.

While it makes sense to study data on a company’s institutional ownership, it also makes sense to study analyst sentiment to find out which way the wind is blowing. As far as we can tell, there’s no analyst coverage of the company, so it’s probably flying under the radar.

Insider Ownership of Banco Products (India)

The definition of an insider may differ slightly from country to country, but board members still matter. The management of the company answers to the board of directors and the latter must represent the interests of the shareholders. In particular, sometimes the senior executives themselves sit on the board of directors.

Most view insider ownership as a positive because it can indicate that the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, there are times when too much power is concentrated within this group.

Our information suggests that insiders own more than half of Banco Products (India) Limited. This gives them effective control of the business. So they have a ₹9.9 billion stake in this ₹14 billion venture. Most would say this is a positive, showing strong alignment with shareholders.
