Review and Recommendation of Ajanta Pharma Buyback 2021 by IZ team is: 4/10 [ER = 3%]


    Ajanta Pharma Rs 1888… Hope everyone comes out in some profit… Not good profit expected for the investors who bought only for Buyback…

    Can anyone please share the final bidding particulars of the shares submitted for the buyback of Ajanta? Thank you.

    1. can anyone tell how to tender the eligible shares in buyback. I mean, will it be possible thru online.
    2. Can I tender eligible shares as well as balance shares in this buyback offer.

      Depend upon broker to broker. Some brokers like Zerodha allows online. Angel Broking sends an email to apply. So, better to ask the broker.

    I am new to buyback and got 1 share of Ajanta pharma last month to participate in buyback for the first time. I got email today from company as below. can anyone pls confirm if I am eligible for buyback since entitlement for buy back shows 0.

    Number of Equity Shares held by you on the Record Date being Friday, January 14, 2022 = 1

    Entitlement for Buy-back Offer in terms of number of Equity Shares = 0

    1) ER for Retail Shareholders (20%)

    30 Equity Shares out of every 151 fully paid-up Equity

    2. General category for all other Eligible Shareholders (1.09%)

    1 Equity Share out of every 91 fully paid-up Equity Shares

      I have not yet received a mail…I had 20 shares with me which I sold on 13th January. Will I be eligible?

    Tomorrow (12/01/2022) is last day to buy for been eligible for Buyback.
    Hope fully price would reach 2323 before that, my target price to completely quit.

      Sumit ji,
      Your target price of Rs.2323/- is already reached today. I presume that you have not placed sell order in the opening of the trading hours. Thank you n all the best.

    Ajanta Pharma 2294.. Time to sell. some 3.5% profit… Better than getting into all Buyback things?

    Please suggest

      Sumit ji,
      Today I have sold the excess 14 shares @ Rs. 2293/-. However, the share price is likely to touch at least Rs. 2325 if not Rs. 2350/- during the next week. Thank you.

        Thanks SRK ji. I would now sell 50% at ~2300 and 50% at ~2323 instead of putting in buyback, as same would also yield 3-5% only with higher risk..

    Ajanta at 2205? Good time to buy?

    SRK Sir and other dear learned members, Kindly suggest.

        If you can get at that price, you will definitely be benefitted reasonably more than many investors who have already purchased at a higher rate. All the best.

      Today I have purchased some shares @Rs.2200/-.

      Sumit ji,
      Today I have purchased some shares @Rs.2200/-. I think it is a fair price. Thank you.

        Thanks. I also purchase some 30 shares today.. Would wait for 2180 or lower for buying more and would sell at 2300, if it comes before buyback…

          Sumit ji,
          I am also planning to purchase around 50 shares if available @ not more than Rs.2170/- before 07/01. I am quite confident that the price will reach around Rs.2300/- by 11/01. Thank you.

            Already touched the price of Rs.2315/- on 10/01 itself.

      Around 35% AR can be expected. In 2020, the AR was 39%. Thank you n all the best.

    I pray God to bless you all with a very very happy, healthy, wealthy, successful n prosperous new year. All the best n best of luck.

    Ajanta Pharma

    Buyback price. Rs.2550/-
    Mode of the Buyback. Through Tender Offer
    Record Date. 14/01/2022
    Buyback Size. 11,20,000 shares

    In the last year’s Buyback the AR was 39% in Retail Category. I am positive @ Rs.2200/- to Rs.2250/-. All the best to all of you. Thank you.

      Should buy at the current rate or wait for market correction till 14/01??
      Current rate is only 12-13% lower than the buyback rate, which can be wiped / added in 1-2 days…
      Please suggest.

        Only 22 shares are executed at the average price of Rs.2208/-regarding my buying order today. Around Rs.2200/-, we may purchase 40 shares and we may wait for the price of Rs.2150/- for another 40 shares. That’s my strategy. I solicit your valuable views in this regard. Thank you.

      Reasonably good AR. The unaccepted shares have also not given any bad impact regarding the price. Thank you.

        If AR is more than 40% in retail category, it will definitely be treated as reasonably good. But I doubt whether it reaches 40%.

    Great to see Ajanta Pharma so quick.
    Heard of Mahindra Home and GE shipping also?
    Experts kindly comment on profit possibility in each…
    Should enter now?

      GE was through market and Mahindra Home is private..

      So not really discussable..

      Though I am not an expert, I would like to share my views. Ajanta is likely to be more beneficial as the chances of reduction in the price of the unaccepted shares are expected to be low. Regarding GE, it was through open offer in 2019. Further, the share price is so fluctuating and hence a bit risky.

      However, on knowing the details of the Buybacks only we can take a decision. Thank you.

    Kindly share your views on knowing the details of the buyback.
