Posted on 1st April 2020
Investor sentiment towards state-owned oil marketing companies (OMCs) such as Hindustan Petroleum (HPCL), Bharat Petroleum (BPCL) and Indian Oil (IOC) has improved sharply with crude oil prices falling to 18 year low.

OPINION: BPCL disinvestment: Will the buck stop with Indian Oil?
Posted on 15th October 2019
The Modi government’s plan to privatise BPCL hasn’t received an enthusiastic response from prospective buyers. News reports suggest that Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries is unlikely to bid for India’s second largest fuel retailer. Apart from the UK-based BP that gave a measured response to the sale offer, no international oil company has expressed interest in buying BPCL after a group of secretaries approved the sale of the government’s 53.29 per cent stake last month.

BPCL ratings: Reiterate ‘Sell’ amid adverse risk-reward balance
Posted on 9th October 2019
The recent outperformance of BPCL against other OMCs is pricing in upside from a potential open offer in lieu of control premium that maybe paid by a strategic buyer in a scenario of privatisation.

BPCL privatisation to prompt downgrade, says Moody’s

Whether BPCL is to be privatised or sold to another PSU, the proposed stake sale of 53.29% government stake in the company will prompt bond redemption and attendant refinancing risks, the rating agency added.
