“The company had got itself listed with the aspiration that listing will enhance its brand name and visibility, and would help attract retail clients for nine trading and depository accounts and allied services. It had also been hoped that the increased branding will aid in attracting top talent and listing would allow a good platform for grant of options,” the offer document said,

“However, though the treasury operations and proprietary trading division have done reasonably, it has been observed that listing has not brought any benefits in terms of increased branding and visibility and the company’s retail trading and depository activities have not performed up to optimum levels as compared to other players in the market,” the offer document added.
