In respect of:

In the matter of Dealings in Illiquid Stock Options at the BSE

FACTS OF THE CASE
1. Securities and Exchange Board of India (hereinafter be referred to as, the “SEBI”) conducted investigation into the trading activity in illiquid stock options on BSE Limited (hereinafter be referred to as, the “BSE”) for the period April 01, 2014 to September 30, 2015 (hereinafter be referred to as, the “Investigation Period”) after observing large scale reversal of trades in the Stock Options segment of the BSE.

2. The investigation revealed that during the Investigation Period, a total of 2,91,643 trades comprising 81.38% of all the trades executed in the BSE Stock Options Segment were trades which involved reversal of buy and sell positions by the clients and counterparties in a contract. It was observed that Morisson Traders and Developments Pvt., Ltd., (hereinafter be referred to as, the “Noticee”) was one such client whose reversal trades involved squaring off open positions with a significant difference without any basis for such change in the contract price. The aforesaid reversal trades allegedly resulted into generation of artificial volumes, leading to allegations that the Noticee had violated the provisions of Regulation 3(a), (b), (c), (d) and Regulation 4(1), 4(2) (a) of the SEBI (Prohibition of Fraudulent and Unfair Trading Practices related to Securities Markets) Regulations, 2003 (hereinafter be referred to as, the “SEBI PFUTP Regulations”).
