The Role of the Nairobi Stock Exchange (NSE)

Mr. Chris Mwebesa

Chief Executive

March 29 2007

some definitions of a stock exchange
SOME DEFINITIONS OF A STOCK EXCHANGE:-
  • A "stock exchange" is a market place, a physical location where stocks and bonds are bought and sold, such as the Nairobi Stock Exchange, the JSE Ltd., New York Stock Exchange.
  • A stock market can be an actual place, but with the growth of electronic transactions a large fraction of stock market transactions are no longer centrally located in a particular location.
role of the nse
ROLE OF THE NSE:-
  • The Role of the NSE in the Kenyan Economy is best discerned by examining the mandate of the Exchange to all its Key Stakeholders.
  • We have numerous Stakeholders but the key ones are the Issuers (listed companies), Investors, financial services regulators and the Government.
  • NSE has a huge public profile and visibility which comes with a lot of negative publicity. We really are the first line regulator and where there are issues bigger than the NSE then the CMA must take up its mandate.

TRANSACTIONS IN THE PIPELINE

Privatisation transactions in the pipeline include the sale to the public and subsequent listing of Government stakes in the following:-

  • 40% of Kenya Re-insurance Corporation;
  • 25% of Safaricom Ltd.;
  • 34 % of Telkom Kenya offloaded through the NSE after 26 % has been sold to a strategic investor;

We also expect from the private sector:-

automation of the nse trading system

Automation of the NSE Trading System

Mr. Chris Mwebesa

Chief Executive

automation
AUTOMATION
  • The implementation of the Automated Trading System happened on Monday 11 September 2006;
  • The ATS is sourced from Millennium Information Technologies (MIT) of Colombo, Sri Lanka, who are also the suppliers of the Central Depository System (CDS). MIT have also supplied similar solutions to the Colombo Stock Exchange and the Stock Exchange of Mauritius;
  • The NSE trading hours have increased from 2 to 3 hours (10:00 am – 1:00 pm). Besides trading equities, the ATS is also fully capable of trading immobilised corporate bonds and treasury bonds.
slide23
Opportunity to enhance revenue streams through information vending to our stakeholders.
  • The implementation of the ATS and achievement of T+3, will bring us a step closer to meeting the Group of 30's (G30) standards on trading and settlement as adopted in 1989.
participation in the capital markets the case for financing through the capital markets

Participation in the Capital Markets- The Case for financing through the Capital Markets

Mr. Chris Mwebesa

Chief Executive

March 29 2007

institutions list securities primarily to
INSTITUTIONS LIST SECURITIES PRIMARILY TO:-
  • To raise funds for expansion and growth (without the interest burden of funds borrowed from lending institutions.);
  • To improve the liquidity of their securities;
  • To optimise their capital structure and lower their cost of capital;
  • To lengthen components of the capital structure(especially debt);
  • To increase public awareness about the institution and its products;
  • To unlock value. Founding shareholders, Sponsors, Promoters and Venture Capitalists use the capital markets to exit their investments with the aim of making a return on the initial investment, or to realise the true valuation of their enterprise.
financial benefits of capital markets financing
A company may issue:

Shares;

Debt (Bonds);

Both may be issued:

Through a public floatation through an offer to the public such as the KenGen issue.

Private placement to a few select investors such as the Shelter Afrique bond placement.

FINANCIAL BENEFITS OF CAPITAL MARKETS FINANCING
slide27
Optimization of Capital Structure

Far too many firms are too heavily geared courtesy of bank debt.

Bank debt increasingly the cause of bankruptcies or other insolvency interventions

No consideration for marginal cost of funds when borrowing

Diversify sources of funding from short term commercial bank financing

slide28
Optimal Capital Structure is defined as the mix of debt and equity which minimizes the weighted average cost of capital.

Factors affecting cost of capital that the firm CANNOT CONTROL!!

Interest rate regime;

Level of taxes;

Factors affecting cost of capital that the firm can CONTROL!!

Capital structure;

Dividend policy;

Investment policy;

By optimizing what is in the firm’s control the firm can significantly lower its cost of capital.

slide29
Lowering the Cost of Capital

Equity

Cost of equity capital is the dividend return adjusted for growth;

Dividend policy is in the control of the firm

slide30
Lowering of Cost of Capital

Debt

Cost of debt capital is interest payments adjusted for tax (tax deductible);

Coupon interest payments lower than commercial bank lending rates because of the relatively higher interest rate regimes pertaining in the region and subsequently higher commercial lending rates;
