Aiming to tap the upbeat investor sentiment, two companies - CDSL on Monday launched its Initial Public Offer (IPOs) to raise over Rs 1,000 crore. Just like BSE was the first stock exchange to list in India, CDSL will be the first depository to be quoted on an Indian stock exchange.

Up to 7,00,000 shares are reserved for employees.

According to Motilal Oswal Securities Ltd, at Rs 149 a share, the offer is valued at 18.2 times FY17 earnings per share (EPS), which is attractive due to its strong parentage, stable earnings growth, strong margins and decent return on equity of 17% in FY17.

CDSL raised Rs 154.06 crore ($24 million) from the anchor investors by selling 10.34 million shares at Rs 149 apiece, the upper end of the Rs 145-149 price band.
