Four law firms – three Indian and one international – shared the honours as advisers on the recent IPO of BSE (the Bombay Stock Exchange), which was oversubscribed 51 times and netted US$184 million. The IPO of what is Asia’s oldest stock exchange was the first IPO of a stock exchange in India.

BSE’s shares will be listed on the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE), as self-listing for a stock exchange is not allowed under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).

AZB & Partners was legal counsel to BSE and Crawford Bayley & Co was legal counsel to the selling shareholders. Nishith Desai Associates and Clifford Chance were legal counsel to the underwriters.

AZB partner Varoon Chandra, who along with partner Lionel D’Almeida and senior associate Richa Choudhary advised on the IPO, said that “the endeavour was to ensure that the scheme of participation reached out to all of BSE’s shareholders so as to ensure maximum participation by them and to keep logistical issues to a minimum, while ensuring no compromise from a legal perspective”.
