Computation of Networth of Trading Members

Written By Admin on Saturday, 21 April 2012 | Saturday, April 21, 2012

All trading members of the Exchange are required to submit their networth statements on a half yearly basis as on 31st March and 30th September every year. Trading members have the flexibility of calculating their networth as per any of the methods given below:

Once a trading member chooses one of the below given methods, he will have to continue to compute his networth using the same method unless a change of method is specifically approved by the Exchange. 

Method 1:
As per circular No. 44 dated January 22, 1997, which prescribes the treatment of each and every component of the balance sheet as per the book value or the books of accounts of the trading member.


Method 2:
By valuation of their assets on the following basis:

A.     Listed (Quoted) investments in the name of the applicant (at marketalue)   
         (Detailed list to be enclosed)

B.     Margin of 30% on market value of listed (quoted) Investments

C.     Net value of listed Investments (A) – (B)

D.     Investments in unlisted (unquoted) companies (as per Note No. 3)

E.      Margin of 50% on (D)

F.      Net value of unlisted Investments (D) – (E)

G.     Other Investments (at cost) like PPF, NSC at current value, Statutory deposits                      with the Exchange, Deposits with registered NBFCs, Bank FDs

H.     Total Net Investments (C) + (F) + (G)

I.       Market Value of Land & Building component of the Fixed Assets (Full details                     of such assets like survey number, location, address, extent of land & building to                     be furnished)

J.       Margin on I at 50%

K.     Net value of such fixed assets (I – J).

L.      Debtors not exceeding 3 months + Cash & Bank balance

M.     Current Liabilities

N.     Long term liabilities

O.     Networth  (H + K + L) – (M + N)

Notes: -

1.      For   computation    of loans and advances as a component of current assets, all advances / loans other than those arising out of securities dealing have to be excluded.  Only such loans and advances arising due to the securities dealings are to be included as current assets for the purpose of networth computation.

2.      Valuation of    fixed assets for the consideration of networth would have to be certified by government approved valuers and the value would hold good for 3 years unless a fresh valuation is submitted. Only those items of land & building that are in the name of the trading member as well as in the possession of the trading member shall be included under the head (I) - Land & Building component of the Fixed Assets. Those properties that are leased out by the trading member or taken on lease shall not be included for computation of networth. Fixed Assets other than Land & Building shall not be included for the purpose of computation of networth.

3.      Valuation of unlisted investments would be at “fair value” of the said investment, i.e. the average of the “earning value” and the “break up value”.  For this purpose: -

a)     The “break up value” means the equity capital and reserves as reduced by intangible assets and revaluation reserves, divided by the number of equity shares of the investee company.

b)      The “earning value” means the value of an equity share computed by taking the average of profits after tax as reduced by the preference dividend and adjusted for extra-ordinary and non-recurring items, for the immediately preceding three years and further divided by the number of equity shares of the investee company and capitalised at the following rate: -
         · In case of predominantly manufacturing company, eight percent;
         · In case of predominantly trading company, ten percent; and
         · In case of any other company, including an NBFC, twelve percent;
         · If, an investee company is a loss making company, the earning value will be taken at zero.
(For e.g. EV for an NBFC with capitalisation rate of 12%, is earning per share multiplied by 100/12)
4.      Details of items comprising investments, current assets, current liabilities and long term liabilities should be given separately.

5.      Current assets should exclude loans to related entities, bad and doubtful debts and debts outstanding for more than 3 months, advance against capital assets, pledged securities / assets, prepaid expenses, bad deliveries and also intangible assets.

6.      Debtors should be distinguished as debtors arising from securities operations and others.

7.      Value of membership card / Deposits with any other Stock Exchange is to be excluded for the purpose of computation of networth.

8.         Advance / Investment with or debts due from persons notified under Special Court (Trial of Offences Relating to Transactions in securities) Act, 1992 are to be excluded for the purpose of computation of networth.
