Review and Recommendation of Ajanta Pharma Buyback 2019 by IZ team is: 2/10 Fair: 1-5 Good:5-7 Excellent: 7-10 [ Buyback size of 100 Cr is very small. Acceptance Ratio would be around 10%. The Quarterly results are very poor.]

      The size of the buyback is small. The price has already fallen a lot. So please avoid buyback.

    ER Calculation

    No. of Shares reserved for Retail Category- 1,15,384 Shares

    Shares up to 2 lacs as per Dec 2018 Pattern- 64,03,433 Shares

    ER-based on this 2%

    Q3 FY 2019 performance highlights (compared to Q3 FY 2018)

     Income from operations at Rs. 485 cr. against Rs. 587 cr., down 17%.
     EBITDA at Rs. 107 cr. against Rs. 198 cr., down 46%; EBITDA at 22% of revenue.
     Profit after tax at Rs. 67 cr., against Rs. 147 cr., down 55%; PAT at 14% of revenue.

    Quarterly results are very poor in every parameter. The company may have done buyback to arrest in price.

    Share will definitely open with gap down for sure.

    Buyback Size is less than 1% of total equity.
    Small Shareholders potion approx 1 lakh shares only

      Thanks for the number, though BSE/NSE website is not showing any update on BB.

      Is it tender route or open market. Also what is the size of the BB coz the results are bad??

        BSE now has the announcement. It is for 100 Crores in tender route. Not cheerful enough on size considering the market cap of the company is 9000 Crores
