Securities and Exchange Commission Bangladesh

CHAIRMAN’S STATEMENT

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was established on June 8, 1993 under the Securities and Exchange Commission Act 1993 (Act 15 of 1993) as a capital market regulator with a view to ensuring proper issuance of securities, protection of the interest of investors in securities, development of the capital and securities markets, and regulation of the capital and securities markets in Bangladesh.

The Commission consists of a chairman and four full time members who are employed by the government for a period of three years renewable for another similar term. The services of the chairman and members of the Commission are also determined by the government. The Chairman is the chief executive officer of the Commission.

The country’s capital market witnessed a remarkable turn-around during the fiscal year 2008-2009. There were unmistakable signs of the resurgence of investor’s confidence which suffered a major jolt in the wake of the catastrophic crash of the stock market in 1996. Dhaka Stock Exchange’s (DSE) general index which was introduced on 27th November 2001 with a base of 818 points hardly moved in the following two years with the index increasing by merely five points to reach 823 on 30th June 2003. A significantly higher level was attained during the following year with the index rising to 1319 as of 30 June 2004. Parallely, Chittagong Stock Exchange’s index rose from 1841 as of 30th June 2003 to 2329 as of 30th June 2004. The momentum of growth persisted through the subsequent months. Market capitalization at DSE increased from Taka 69 billion on of 30th June 2003 to Taka 142 billion as of 30th June 2004.

The above developments in the capital market were fostered by several macroeconomic measures. The budget for 2008-2009 provided that a rebate of 10 percent of the income tax would be allowed if a listed company declared 20 per cent dividend; no questions were to be asked by the tax authority as to source of income if investment was made in the shares of listed companies; and there was a corporate tax differential amounting to 7.5 percent between listed companies declaring at least 10 percent dividend and others. Dividend income was made tax-free in the hands of the recipient. The Government and the Bangladesh Bank took steps to reduce interest rates on the saving instruments and bank deposits.

The macroeconomic measures were complemented by a number of initiatives implemented by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). These were primarily aimed at ensuring smooth and orderly functioning of the capital market. A brief outlines of these initiatives is presented below:

SEC intensified dialogue with various market actors – issuers, members of the stock exchange, merchant bankers, auditors etc. A consultative Committee was set up consisting of SEC officials and the Chief Executive Officers of DSE and CSE to discuss market-related developments and propose appropriate corrective actions.

Monitoring role of SEC was strengthened to ensure that the market actors fulfill their duties and obligations. A system of regular inspection of brokerage houses was put in place. The submission of half-yearly and annual accounts and holding of annual general meetings were closely monitored. Surveillance over the prices and trading volumes of individual scrip was strengthened. These led to a number of enforcement actions, including suspension of trading in shares of 16 companies.

Central Depository Bangladesh Limited (CDBL) has started commercial operation upon receipt of business commencement certificate from the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 23, 2003. Now on, the issuance of primary shares through public offering has to be made through CDBL in dematerialized form that would enhance the transparency and bring dynamism in the capital market. The dematerialization of securities listed on the stock exchanges began on December 24, 2004, and 15 companies were brought within the fold of central depository system by 30th June 2004. These companies account for 22.02 % of market capitalization. The remaining securities listed on the exchanges would be dematerialized in phases. Apart from the above, CSE has introduced internet trading system with effect from 30th May 2004.

The Commission accorded registration to Credit Rating Agency of Bangladesh Ltd (CRAB) on February 24, 2004 that increased the number of registered credit rating company into two. With the operation of new credit rating agency, it is expected that competition would result in improvement of quality as regards credit rating. In Bangladesh, rating is mandatory for issuance of debt instruments through public offering, issuance of rights shares and issuance of shares at premium.

The Securities and Exchange Commission introduced a new system for IPO distribution to attract small investors towards capital market. In this respect, all the applicants shall be treated as applied for a single lot of securities. If there is over subscription, then lottery shall be held amongst the applicants allocating one identification number for each application, irrespective of the application money. On the other hand, if there is under subscription, then all the applicants shall first be distributed with a single lot and thereafter, for the balance amount, lottery shall be held for the applicants who have applied for multiple lots on the basis of dividing the application money by the amount of a market lot separately.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has withdrawn the weighted average index from Dhaka and Chittagong Stock Exchanges for its failure to reflect the fluctuation of price of securities traded on the stock exchanges.

To ensure total enforcement of the Anti Money Laundering Law in the country, the Securities and Exchange Commission has issued a notification restricting cash transaction over Tk. five laces for purchase or sale of listed company’s shares. In this regard, an investor will have to transact through the banking channel by account payee checks, bank payment order or draft or any other mode of transaction available with the banking system. Beside this, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is in the process of finalizing guidelines for election/ appointment of directors and their qualifications with a view to improving corporate governance.

The revival of investors’ confidence amply demonstrated by the sustained upward trend in the stock market indices, market capitalization and the volume as well as value and volume of daily turnover needs to be nurtured. In this context, one can not overemphasize the importance of augmenting the supply of quality scrip’s. Here the response was at best lukewarm. During the fiscal year under review, SEC could approve only five issues of initial public offering. The total value of issues amounted to Tk. 151.69 crore.

The country’s capital market is predominantly equity- centric. Of the total 267 securities traded on the stock exchanges, 248 are equities, 11 mutual funds and eight are debentures. In order to widen the choices available to investors with respect to returns, liquidity and risks, it is crucially important to diversify the instruments available for investment. With this end in view efforts were initiated to introduce asset-backed securities and make long-term government bonds tradable on the stock exchanges. These efforts are expected to be successful within the next few months.

To conclude, the capital market of Bangladesh is now poised to play its due role as a conduit for financing investment and thereby making a notable contribution to economic growth, employment creation and poverty alleviation. The progress achieved so far would not have been possible without the active cooperation and support of many parties- the Government, Bangladesh Bank, issuers and market intermediaries. I wish to express my gratitude to all of them. I also acknowledge with thanks the high level of commitment and dedication shown by all my colleagues in the Commission in our joint bid to revitalize the capital market.

Dr. A B Mirza Azizul Islam

Chairman

Bangladesh Capital Market

The Commission:

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) was established on June 8, 1993 under the Securities and Exchange Commission Act 1993 (Act 15 of 1993) as a capital market regulator with a view to ensuring proper issuance of securities, protection of the interest of investors in securities, development of the capital and securities markets, and regulation of the capital and securities markets in Bangladesh.

The Commission consists of a chairman and four full time members who are employed by the government for a period of three years renewable for another similar term. The service of the Chairman and members of the Commission are also determined by the government. The Chairman is the chief executive officer of the Commission.

The Dhaka  Stock Exchange (DSE):

As on 30th June, 2004 there were 267 securities listed with DSE against which total issued capital was Tk.48, 940 million and total market capitalization was Tk.1,42,370 million.

The Dhaka Stock Exchange is a self-regulated non-profit organization. It has a 24 members Council of which 12 are elected from the exchange members and 12 are nominated from the non-exchange members by the elected exchange member-councilors, subject to the approval of SEC.

The executive power of DSE is vested in the chief executive officer (CEO) and under the leadership of CEO the executive body conducts the daily affairs of DSE. The board of directors of DSE appoints the CEO with the approval of SEC.

The Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE):

As on 30th June, 2004 there were 195 securities listed with CSE against which total issued capital was 44,360 million and total market capitalization was Tk.1,25,910 million.

The Chittagong Stock Exchange is also a self-regulated non-profit organization and formation of the board of directors, size and the rules of election of directors are also similar to DSE. The executive power of CSE is also vested in the CEO, and the executive body conducts the daily affairs of the exchange. The CEO is appointed by the Board with the approval of  the Commission.

 Bond Market:

The country’s capital market is predominantly equity-centric. Of the total 267 scrips traded on the Dhaka Stock Exchange only eight are debentures issued by the corporate houses. The total outstanding amount against the aforesaid debentures was Tk.230.00 million only as on June 30, 2004. Under Financial Institution Development Project an expatriate firm has also been engaged to suggest a draft of comprehensive rules for issuance, trading, payment and settlement of government, municipal and corporate fixed income securities in Bangladesh.  Apart from the above, a few financial institutions, with the regulatory support of Bangladesh Bank and SEC, have taken initiatives for their asset securitization. It is hoped that aforesaid instruments would provide the investors alternative investment options in near future.

Raising of capital through Initial Public Offering (IPO):

During 2008-2009 fiscal year 10 companies raised Tk.2400 million capital through initial public offering to the general public. Out of the aforesaid 10 companies, five obtained consent from the Commission to raise capital in the fag end of FY. 2002-2003 but subscribed by the general public during 2008-2009. The five companies that received consent from the Commission and subscribed by the general public within FY. 2008-2009 raised Tk. 1520 million by way of Tk.730 million from the general public, Tk.60 million from foreign placement and Tk.730 million from local placement.

Listed Companies:

To increase awareness of the investors in the capital market, the listed companies have been categorized as A, B, Z and G based on profit-loss, status of annual general meeting (AGM) and commercial operational status of the companies. ‘A’ category companies are those which pay 10% or more dividend, ‘B’ category companies are those which pay less than 10% dividend and ‘Z’ category companies are which that fail to pay any dividend, hold AGM,  and whose accumulated loss exceeded the issued capital or companies which are not in operation for more than six months.

As at 30th June 2004 there were 123 ‘A’ category companies (47.49% of total listed companies), 39 ‘B’ category companies (15.06% of total listed companies), 96 ‘Z’ category companies (37.06 % of total listed companies) and only one ‘G’ category company.

Depository System Started Functioning in the Capital Market:

Central Depository Bangladesh Limited (CDBL) has started its commercial operation upon receipt of business commencement certificate from the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 23, 2003. Now on the issuance of primary shares through public offering has to be made through CDBL in dematerialized form that would enhance the transparency and would bring dynamism in the capital market. The dematerialization of securities listed on the stock exchanges began on December 24, 2004, and 15 companies were brought within the fold of central depository system by 30th June 2004. These companies account for 22.02 % of market capitalization. The remaining securities listed on the exchanges would be dematerialized in phases.

Merchant Bank:

As on 30 June 2004, there were 29 companies that obtained registration certificate from the Commission to work as merchant banker and portfolio manager. Most of them are full-fledged merchant bankers (Issue manager, Underwriter and Portfolio manager). The break-up of the aforesaid 29 companies are given below:

(a)        Full fledged merchant banker                         –           22

(b)        Issue manager                                                 –             6

(c)        Portfolio manager                                           –             1

The performance of most of the aforesaid companies is not satisfactory. One of the merchant bankers named Saudi- Bangladesh Industrial and Agricultural Investment Company Ltd with the consent of the Commission has stopped operation of its merchant banking wing for the time being.

Mutual Fund and Asset Management:

As per the Securities and Exchange Commission (Mutual Fund) Rules, 2001 the Commission accords registration to mutual funds. As on June 30, 2004, only ten mutual funds including one managed by AIMS of Bangladesh Ltd, a private sector asset management company, were listed on the stock exchanges. Govt. owned Investment Corporation of Bangladesh issued eight and Bangladesh Shilpa Rin Shangstha (BSRS) issued the remaining one mutual fund. ICB Asset Management Company is going to issue another two mutual funds named “ICAB AMCL Islami Mutual Fund” and “Pension Holders Unit Fund” in the market. In the meantime, the Commission has accorded registration to “ICB AMCL Islami Mutual Fund” and also approved the draft of trust deed of “ICB AMCL Pension Holders Unit Fund” during this financial year. As institutional investor more mutual funds would play a significant role in the capital market.

 

Credit Rating Agency of Bangladesh Limited:

The Commission accorded registration to Credit Rating Agency of Bangladesh Ltd (CRAB) on February 24, 2004 that increased the number of registered credit rating company into two. With the operation of new credit rating agency, it is expected that competition would result in improvement of quality as regards credit rating. In Bangladesh, rating is mandatory for issuance of debt instruments through public offering, issuance of rights shares and issuance of shares at premium.

New system introduced for IPO distribution:

The Securities and Exchange Commission introduced a new system for IPO distribution to attract small investors towards capital market. In this respect, all the applicants shall be treated as applied for one minimum lot. If there is over subscription, then lottery shall be held amongst the applicants allocating one identification number for each application, irrespective of the application money. On the other hand, if there is under subscription, then all the applicants shall first be distributed with a single lot and thereafter, for the balance amount, lottery shall be held for the applicants who have applied for multiple lots on the basis of dividing the application money by the amount of a market lot separately.

SEC-ADB Workshop on Corporate Governance:

 A two-day long national workshop on ‘Corporate Governance in Bangladesh’, jointly arranged by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Asian Development Bank was held at the Sonargaon Hotel, Dhaka on July 9 to 10, 2003. Another workshop was also jointly organized by the Securities and Exchange Commission and Asian Development Bank at CIRDAP auditorium, Dhaka on 24 May 2004. SEC Chairman Dr. A B Mirza Azizul Islam inaugurated the workshop. Local and expatriate consultants and Commission officials highlighted the various aspects of corporate governance. They also dwelt on aspects that were needed to be implemented to improve the governance scenario in Bangladesh.

SEC Formed a Consultative Committee:

The Securities and Exchange Commission has formed a three member consultative committee consisting of the senior most executive director of the Commission and CEOs of stock exchanges to discuss the market related issues and recommend appropriate measure for the Commission’s consideration.

Weighted Average Index withdrawn:

The Securities and Exchange Commission has withdrawn the weighted average index from Dhaka and Chittagong stock exchanges for its failure to reflect fluctuation of price of securities traded on the stock exchanges.

SEC suspended trading of 16 companies:

The Securities and Exchange Commission suspended trading of 16 companies for their abnormal price hike despite the fact that their fundaments were very poor and many of them were not in commercial operation. In the meantime, some of these companies were de-listed from the stock exchanges. However, to facilitate the trading of the de-listed securities direction has been given by the Commission to CSE to allow transactions of these securities on O-T-C market.

SEC Consent Mandatory for Pre-IPO Placement:

The Securities and Exchange Commission has taken measures to ensure compliance of the securities laws for raising capital through pre-IPO placement by issuer companies.

SEC Imposed Limitation on Cash Transaction in the Stock Market Deals:

To ensure compliance with the Anti Money Laundering Law in the country, the Securities and Exchange Commission has issued a notification restricting cash transaction over Tk. five lacs for purchase or sale of listed companies’ shares. Transaction of securities exceeding the aforesaid cash limit has to be made through the banking channel by account payee checks, bank payment order or draft or any other mode of transaction available with the banking system.

Guidelines for Election/ Appointment of Directors:

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is in the process of finalizing guidelines for election/ appointment of directors and their qualifications with a view to improving corporate governance.

SURVEILLANCE

Inspection:

During the period, eleven brokerage houses were inspected by SEC based on some specific observations of surveillance people responsible for monitoring daily securities trading. In this period the Commission requested CSE to investigate into the books and records of three brokerage houses of CSE in respect of transactions of Bank Asia shares and asked DSE to inspect books and records of three brokerage houses of DSE regarding trading of Bata Shoe Company shares, Beach Hatchery Ltd shares and Rahman Chemical shares. In the referred period the Commission decided that the SEC’s Surveillance Team should conduct regular inspection of books and records of at least one stock broker/dealer of the stock exchanges in each month. Accordingly, the SEC Surveillance team carried out inspection in compliance with the aforesaid decision.

The SEC’s Surveillance team also detected unusual/abnormal trading of Tripti Industries Ltd, at DSE. Based on the recommendation of the Surveillance Team the Commission suspended trading of securities of Tripti Industries Ltd. and constituted an enquiry committee in this respect. During this period the SEC requested DSE to investigate into the securities transactions of Lafarge Surma Cement Ltd. and NCCBL and requested CSE to investigate into securities transactions of Lafarge Surma Cement Ltd. and BCIL. In the referred period, as a part of regular inspection, SEC’s Surveillance Team visited two brokerage houses of DSE and two brokerage houses of CSE to examine books and records for ensuring proper compliance with the securities laws. Besides, the Commission constituted five enquiry committees to enquire into the transactions of Mercantile Bank Ltd., Mutual Trust Bank Ltd., One Bank Ltd, Uttara Bank Ltd. and Bank Asia Ltd.

   Surveillance:

  The Surveillance Department of the Commission monitors on real time basis the trading of securities on Dhaka Stock Exchange Ltd. and Chittagong Stock Exchange Ltd. through non-trading version of work stations. Through this system the SEC Surveillance Officers watch the daily trading pattern and time to time inform the top management of the Commission about the market condition.

At the end of the trading period, a report containing abnormal activities, if found during the trading period, is prepared and submitted to the Chairman, Members and other senior officials.

 Analysis of Trading Data:

   Surveillance Department of SEC analyzes the post trading data on regular basis. Relevant data and trading information are regularly collected from the exchanges based on which analysis and calculation are done. In this connection historical data analysis of the company is carried out and emphasis is given on the price and volume trend of the securities. If the analysis reveals any abnormal trend or volatility in terms of turnover and price movement, then primary inspection is conducted in order to ascertain the reason(s) behind such movement and if anything suspected wrong, then the matter is placed to higher authority for further action.

Special Watch on the Trading of Z Category Shares:

     The Surveillance Staff of SEC closely monitor the trading of ‘Z’ category shares, particularly, in respect of price movement of these shares. If any unusual price change in the trading of ‘Z’ category share is noticed, then the matter is taken up with the higher authority and, if necessary, the concerned brokerage houses are asked to furnish the relevant papers for examination.
