        I am a new member and look forward to your views.

        You and other members who share a buy back ER and AR inputs are very valuable. Keep doing it Sirji’s.

      First time i have heard this day 1 and day 2 accepted. Buddy this isnt first come first serve. After everyone has bidded we get a data.

        Yes, there is nothing like first come, first serve business in buybacks and IPO allotment as per my knowledge,

    today is the fund payout day for bajaj auto buyback? anyone has recd funds in bank account?

      Total Bids Received 4,98,026 v/s Retail Shares Reserved 6,00,000

      Retail Acceptance Ratio Expected to be same as Entitlement Ratio

      2 Out of 5 Single Shares may to Get Accepted

    Looking at the discussion and number of shareholders at record rate seems like chances are there that 1 share strategy might work, but not confirmed like big buybacks i.e TCS .
    So, if someone has bought 1 share at lower price should they sell ? as after buyback tender date sahre price falls because everyone starts selling the unaccepted shares .

    Seniors please guide

      Hi ALL,

      Will it be beneficial if i quote all the shares for BB ? please respond .Any how stock fell more than 300/-.

        Please tender all the shares and buy again later if you have to keep your holdings for long term. Unlikely to reach BB price in the near future.

    As per some reliable sources this time 1 share accpetations is not confirm 2/3
    Retailrs are lucky for 1 share statergy
    Try buy 2 share & 1 share will go in buyback is good statergy …..

      A rough estimate gave me an ER of around 4%. This can vary because of the recent addition of shareholders.

        Mohsin ji, did you calculate the ER based on the nominal share capital calculation shared by AANKIT ji previously? Or any other methods. Thanks.

        Just calculated as per market rate and number of holders.

        It can be 8% or 16% cant say exactly

    Postal ballet voting end date 05/03/24, as per this what may be the record date

      The company will generally announce the record date within a week after the postal ballot voting.

        Daddu Ram ji you are correct. The E-voting for buyback got completed and the record date will be announced soon. (Source: BSE website)

    I have a doubt.

    If I have 300 shares of bajaj auto and I transfer 100 shares to my minor sons account. Then I will be having 200 shares. So then will I be considered as a retail investor for buyback eligibility.

    I am the Guardian of my minor sons account

      No you wont be under reserved if you hold 200 shares on Record date. You would have to transfer 275 shares to your son’s account.

      I understand that accounts under same PAN are clubbed to determine the limit, meant for retailer status.

      I don’t think so. I am guessing it might reach 8000 Rs. I will be happy if your words come True 🙂

      Many people are going for one share strategy. I have seen many of my friends opening Demat Accounts for them and for their family members. Guessing AR would be a challenge. Experts please comment.

      Thisay be the calculation….

    Acceptance Ratio Calculation on Bajaj Auto Buyback is getting viral 🙂 . Good/interesting buyback to watch out for and see whose calculation wins.

    I have 200 Shares Of Bajaj Auto,

    In Which Category I fall For BuyBack.. Can Anyone Help Me ???

    Thank You.

    I purchased 10 shares@ av. rate 7147 for buy back. Whether a special resolution is required by Co.? This is just to guess the time frame.

    What is 1 share strategy in buyback.

    It means iff I purchased 1 share and tender it , there is 100% chance that my share would be sold in buyback ?

    Please clarify it.

        Very high chance, but not guaranteed. I had one case where it was not accepted. Luckily, I could sell it at a price higher than the buyback price few months later.

      If are not sure about 1 sharr strategy then you have buy 2 share then 1 share can go in buyback 100% it’s expert advice & reliable source
      Now it’s your choice

    Many people are saying ki its on company wether they want to accept 1 share or not , is it true ?

      Its definitely not on company, but rather on the number of applicants. If number of applicants > 600,000, of course 1 share won’t be accepted (Assuming the overall holding by individual investors stay below 15%).

      Not at all. I suggest you read the offer doc. The way it works is: First, each applicant’s entitlement is accepted. Then, 1 share of all those who got 0 entitlement is accepted. Normally, those who hold 1 share falls in this category. Thereafter, the shares of those who applied over their entitlement are accepted in a proportional manner.

    Personally, think its overpriced, and I don’t like the promotors. But am tempted. I am giving it last priority after KSCL, Chambal & Dhampur.

    Or maybe just do 1 share via all family accounts. That looks like a good bet.

      Which begs a question – what happens if you tender one share each from multiple demat accounts belonging to you? I have never found the 1 share strategy attractive, but this one appears to be different.

      Why I ask this is – I had tcs shares in 2 different demat accounts (while not exceding the 2L limit) . I got different ER and AR for those.

      If no on knows for sure, I think I’ll just do it – may be an interesting experience.

        Multiple Demat accounts Linked to same PAN won’t work for applying one share strategy from different demat accounts

    i seek clarification on 1 share strategy. Does it mean, I buy one share today and surrender for buyback, It will be accepted? or I have buy more than 1 share and surrender only 1 share for buyback? experts please advise.

    Experts please suggest based on your experience with previous buybacks. Does this share cross 8000 before record date

    Only one share strategy will work. Rest mathematics will fails.

    Only 6 lacs shares are reserved.

    I think I lakhs shareholders will apply under 1 share strategy

      As per trendlyne by dec 23, retailer share holders <2lakh capital, 187920 shareholders having 15397811 ( 1 crore 53 lakh)shares. Only 6 lakh shares are reserved in buyback. I think only one share purchase is better.

      That no is calculated according to face value and not the nominal value

      So that is not the correct no to estimate er

    Expected Minimum Entitlement Ratio for Small Shareholders (below Rs 2 lakhs):

    Dhampur Sugar Jan 2024: 2.25 %
    Kaveri Seeds Jan 2024: 30.04 %
    Chambal Fertilisers Jan 2024: 11.22 %
    Bajaj Auto Jan 2024 : 15 %

      Hi Aankit Ji, Can you tell us how you have arrived Entitlement Ratio of Bajaj auto as 15% ?

        Check Annual Report for year ending March 2023.

        (1) 1 to 500 shares category Share holders :

        1.96% of total equity capital or 55,42,747 shares are held by 2,08,535 investors.

        Average shares held by each share holder in this category comes to around 27 (means many of investors won’t fall in category of small share holders (holding 20 to 25 shares)

        (2)We will have to find out how many of them are small share holders (20 to 25 shares).

        It is guess work.

        On conservative side, I have assumed it to be 1.40% of equity capital and remaining 0.56% to be HNI. Based on average share holding of 27, I know small share holder % will be lesser than 1.40%.

        (3) Offer size is 1.41%
        Reserved (15%) Small Shareholder Quota: 0.21 %
        Actual Small Shareholders: 1.4%

        EER: 0.21 x 100 / 1.4 = 15%

        I hope, this explanation solved your query.

          Thanks for the explanation. Please find below my calculation of ER of 5%.

          As per shareholding pattern Dec 2023 filed in BSE,

          Resident Individuals holding nominal share capital up to Rs. 2 lakhs : 1,53,97,811

          15% of Approved Buyback Shares: 6,00,000

          So, ER = 6,00,000 / 1,53,97,811 = 3.89% .

          And i agree this small holders base will decrease as buyback price is Rs.10,000. Lets hope for the best and luck 🙂

            @ VSK

            Nominal Share Capital means share value at Face Value of Rs 10 & figure of 1,53,97,811 shares include all Retail Share holders holding shares of Bajaj Auto right from 1 to 20,000 in their demat account.

            We need ONLY those share holders, who are holding shares less than 20 to 27 as on record date.
            We willl have to remove all share holders holding shares more than 27 from figure of 1,53,97,811 & then can get correct entitlement ratio for small share holders.

      If this calculation is correct, then Bajaj should have the best expected return if you adjust the buyback premium for expected entitlement / acceptance .

      What Ankit ji is saying about face value and nominal value is correct

      Haven’t analysed the annual report so can’t comment on ER no.s

      Also Ankitji, add people like us who would be entering this for the sole purpose of buy ack
      If acc to match 23 it’s 15%< it is sure to come down to 10% However keep one thing in mind Don't expect much difference here in er and ar Premium is good 30% so a lot of people will enter and almost all will tender

        @ AASHISH Ji,

        Thanks a lot for acknowledging my calculation.

        I was wondering to see so many analysts in social media claiming EER to be ONLY 3 or 4 % based on no of share holders with nominal capital) &eventually creating Negative vibes about Good BUY BACK ARBITRAGE opportunity.
