The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is an unprecedented global situation, declared as a ‘pandemic’ by the World Health Organisation. Based on the Group’s current assessment, the impact of COVID-19 on its operations and the resultant financial performance except for its education and E-learning business is not likely to be significant.
If we give a 25% growth in the bottom line for FY20-21, NSE can easily fetch an EPS of 48 this year. Currently, it is trading at 1150 in the unlisted market. Accordingly, the P/E based on FY21 earning would come around 24. In the listed segment, BSE currently trading at P/E of 15.
