Bombay Stock Exchange gets IPO approval from SEBI

Bombay Stock Exchange has secured approval from market regulator SEBI for its proposed IPO.  The exchange is set to raise close to Rs. 1500 crores through the offer

BSE IPO will see sale of 2,99,55,434 shares by the existing shareholders (Bajaj Holdings Investment, Caldwell India Holdings, Acacia Banyan Partners, Singapore Exchange, Mauritius-based arms of American investor George Soros' Quantum Fund and foreign fund Atticus.

An extraordinary and rather interesting aspect of this listing, whenever materialized, would be that BSE is itself an exchange and listing of BSE on itself would be an issue.
