New Delhi: Capital markets regulator Sebi on Monday imposed Rs 5 lakh fine on Karvy Financial Services Ltd for making requisite disclosures after a delay of nearly seven years. Sebi found that three promoters of Regalia Realty in order to obtain a project loan for the company created encumbrance on the shares held by them by way of a pledge in favour of Karvy Financial Services to secure repayment of the loan.
Karvy Financial Services was required to disclose the creation of a pledge to the company as well as the BSE in accordance with the market norms. Thereafter, the pledge created over the shares of the promoters of the company was invoked by Karvy Financial Services and subsequently, shares of the firm amounting to 55.56 per cent of its total share capital were transferred in its favour.
"By virtue of the pledge being invoked, Noticee shareholding in Regalia Realty increased from 0 per cent to 55.56 per cent and the said disclosure under Regulation 29(1) of SAST Regulation and Regulation 13(1) of PIT Regulation was made on December 26, 2018 to company and stock exchange i.e. after a delay of 6 years and 11 months," Sebi said.
The regulator thus imposed the monetary penalty on Karvy Financial Services for violating Substantial Acquisition of Shares and Takeovers (SAST) norms and Prohibition of Insider Trading (PIT) regulations.
