Margin of 35% and 85% of the total revenue is from advertisements.

The Bennett Coleman Co Ltd Has also increase the ESOP price form Rs.446 to Rs. 546 in the Financial Year 2011-2012.

According to us the valuation of the operating company Bennett Coleman & Co Ltd can be arrived only by segregating the past performances and the future expected revenue growth.

For considering the value of past performances we can take the media report as the base to avoid any kind of debate on the valuation as it has been done by one of the leading merchant bankers of the world.

Based on the above facts and the holdings of the Companies and their Investment in multiple businesses we have calculated the value of the following Companies as given below.
Bharat Nidhi Ltd.                        Rs.58000 Per share
PNB Finance & Ind. Ltd.            Rs. 39800 Per Share
Camac Commercial Co. Ltd.     Rs. 105300 Per share

Basis of calculation of share Price:- 
Value of BCCL (70000 Crore) * Total % holding of the shareholder Company %
No of Shares of the Shareholder Company
The value of BCCL based on the statement of Sh. Vinit Jain, copy of which is already enclosed.
For Example in case of Bharat Nidhi Ltd.:   70000 crore *24.41%
The above price has been calculated without the cross holdings of the Companies and the calculation which we have given above only includes the direct holding. With the cross holdings of the Companies the value of the shares becomes too much higher. For Example:
Bharat Nidhi ltd holds:-

Company Name         No of shares          % Holding

Bennett Coleman        70041600               24.41 %
T.M investment          140000                   14 %
Arth Udyog                 90000                     18.36 %
Ashoka Marketing      2000                       13.33 %
Bennett Property        11673600  

Notes: T.M investment, Arth Udyog is direct holdings co. of Bennett Coleman similar to Bharat Nidhi. We calculated only 70041600 eq shares of Bennett in the valuation of Bharat Nidhi.

  1. Pl refer to SEBI circular and CSE notice

    It appears from the above that now Bharat Nidhi and Benett Coleman have three months w.e.f. 10th October 2016 to either submit action plan of their intention to comply with listing or provide exist route to investors. Thereupon, concerned stock exchange has to ensure completion of process within 6 months. It indicates that by 10th July 2017, there should be some realistic price appearing in the market for Benett Coleman and other group companies holding their BCCL shares.
