The Local and Composite market measures recorded decreases when compared to their December 31, 2013 figures. The index values were impacted by declining share prices while the market capitalisation values were impacted both by falling prices and the delisting of one (1) security during the first quarter of 20141. The Cross-Listed Market measures were the best performers recording increases of 3.55% for both the index and market capitalisation measures respectively. There were eleven (11) extraordinary trades2 occurring in the first quarter of 2013, however, no extraordinary transactions were recorded for the corresponding period in 2014. Removing these transactions would have resulted in an increase of in total trading volume of 35% and an increase in total trading value of 21%. Table 1 – Year to date Statistics

Regular Market Regular Market volume and value decreased for the first quarter of 2014 when compared to the same period in 2013. Trading volume decreased by 47.85% from 2,304,524 in 2013 to 1,201,843 in 2014; whereas trading value decreased by 54.36%. However, during the period under review, there was a 10.38% increase in the number of trades occurring in the market. A snapshot of the advance/decline ratio at the end of the first quarter of 2014 showed declines, with only four securities advancing and six declining versus six securities advancing in price and seven declining at the first quarter close of 2013. At the close of the first quarter of 2013, there were ten trades related to the offer made by Republic Bank Limited for all the issued and outstanding shares of Republic Bank Barbados Limited (RBBL) and one trade related to AMCL Holdings Limited’s offer for ANSA McAL (Barbados) Limited, which resulted in a total of 1,281,206 shares being traded with a total value of $6,418,517.50. There were no extraordinary transactions recorded during the first quarter of 2014 and thus removing the significant transactions which occurred during the corresponding period of 2013 would have resulted in an increase in trading volume on the Regular Market of 17% and a corresponding increase in trading value of 44%.

Performance of the Cross-Listed Securities showed improvement as One Caribbean Media Limited experienced share price appreciation; Neal and Massy Holdings Limited traded firm, while Trinidad Cement Limited and Jamaica Money Market Brokers Limited did not trade. The Local Index registered the largest decline of 16.72% when compared to its position at the corresponding period in 2013 as six securities registered declines in share price over the 12 month period.

At first glance, the activity occurring on the board of the BSE for the first quarter of 2014 is less than positive, especially when compared to the first quarter of 2013 figures. However, as previously stated, a comparison of regular trading activity, less any takeover transactions, would have resulted in increases in both volumes and values traded at the close of the period over the corresponding period in the previous year. An examination of closing indices for exchanges across the region reveal that they too are experiencing a downturn in market performance when compared to their closing values as at December 31, 2013. While the BSE’s Composite Index recorded the highest decline, market measures for both the Jamaica Stock Exchange (JSE) and the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange (TTSE) also experienced declines. The JSE Market Index experienced a 6.70% decrease and the TTSE Composite Index recorded a decrease of 1.16%. Despite the challenges being faced by the market and the wider economy, the BSE continues to strive to ensure that the marketplace, the Listed Companies and its trading participants operate in a manner which is both transparent and efficient with well established policies and procedures to guarantee the highest level of confidence is maintained at all times. To this end, on January 1, 2014 the BSE’s Corporate Governance Recommendations for Listed Companies and its Insider Trading Guidelines for Listed Companies became enforceable. Twelve days later, having received requisite approval from the Financial Services Commission (FSC), on January 13, 2014, the new domestic Rules of the Barbados Stock Exchange Inc. became effective. We believe that the new Recommendations, Guidelines and Rules will further strengthen the marketplace in preparation for any opportunities to be had once the wider economy starts to see relief from the negative impacts of the global economic recession.
