      The Company has also announced a Buyback at Rs. 550 ( an upside of 34%) for the maximum amount of 84 Cr subject to the approval of Shareholders. The maximum shares buyback would be 15 Lakh and out of which 2.25 lakh would be reserved for Retail Investors.

      Acceptance Ratio Calculations:

      1. Buy 363(200000/550) Shares at CMP of 410. The total investment would be 1,48,830.

      2. Total Number of Shareholder holding from 0 to 2500 Shares are close to 40 Lakhs. On that basis, the Acceptance ratio would be 5.625%. However, that is not correct, for exact calculation, we need no. of shareholders having shares between 0 to 363, which is not available anywhere. So Calculation of acceptance ratio is always on assumption basis.

      3. However, as we know the number of Retail shareholders who would be eligible for Buyback would be less than 40 lakh, so we can assume the buyback acceptance ratio to be roughly somewhere around 10-15% as of now.

    What will be buyback price any predictions?

    Which broker charges minimum and offers good services?
    If any one is having detailed information please share for the benefit of our friends.

      Do not expect better service as cheaper rate.

      I have switched over from HDFC to Religare to Sharekhan. I find Sharekhan most stable and most convenient and good platform out of all these. I get personalized RM whom you just call and he can take your orders, not a concern of calling 1800 number and remembering so many codes to dial (though these facilities are also available). U can put off-hours orders and their platform supports a lot of things for you to do online. After all, their brokerages is competitive for investors. If you are trader and having good volume, you can negotiate for better brokerages too. I am satisfied and not interested in switching to cheaper brokers..

    Please comment on tax calculations on the profit earned by tendering shares through buyback.

      Actually, there is two case in it.

      1. When the Company is buy backing the shares directly from shareholders.

      2. When the company is buy backing the shares from Stock Exchanges.

      We all mostly tendered shares under 2 category. So let us discuss it.

      1. Short-term capital gain (If the holding period is less than 12 months) – Capital gain is taxable at a flat rate of 15% under Section 111A as this transaction is chargeable to securities transaction tax (STT).

      2. Long-term capital gain (if the holding period is more than 12 months) – Capital gain exceeding Rs 1,00,000 shall be chargeable to tax at a flat rate of 10% under Section 112A as this transaction is chargeable to securities transaction tax (STT).

      Hope you got the point.

        Hi Market Wizard ,
        Is the exemption of 1 lac on long term capital tax per year is on each scrip or all combined gain .

          All combined bro. Whatever you gained in a year from equity markets.

          It’s 1 Lac long term aggregate profit per PAN number in a year. Does not matter how many scrips you have sold to earn that profit.

    Completely agree with you that hardly we see retails investors having such high-value share in their account. However, it is difficult to predict how many such investors are there who holds less than 10. The Annual Report also doesn’t mention less than 500 shares data.

    Last time also the buyback size was same close to 2000 Cr and very few retailers participated as during the announcement in August 2016 the price of a share in the market was above 23000( buyback price). Hence maybe few people got interested in it. However, this time the difference between CMP and Buyback Price is close to 8%, so more people may be interested to participate.

    Market Wizard Ji,
    I would beg to differ…
    Shares no. wise it may appear small buyback, but cost of 1 share is 21000/- , approx 100 times than the normal share..
    Size wise its 3.78% of total shares is a very good no. considering, high networth of company.
    Request to kindly deep dive for acceptance ratio… Any individual having LESS THAN 10 (TEN) shares would only qualify as retail, while currently 2 Lac category means people having even 1000 shares..
    The issue is that only 5-6% has been left on table by the company..
    But feel acceptance would be 100%…
    Normally retail investor doesn’t get into “SUCH COSTLY SHARE” with current cost nearly 20000

    *Acceptance Ratio will be low*
    New buyers should stay only 1, 54, 000 shares for retailers against current holding of 21 lakh+ at September quarter end.

    At current holding it is only7.32%

        Sorry to jump in.
        2.1 million shares but holders of shares are 68K. Maximum for each share holder would be 9 shares which makes around 612000 shares only resulting in a entitlement of around 25%.

        However, if we take a more realistic approach, a lot of these 68000 shareholders will have more than 9 share in their accounts.
        Assuming only 50% shareholders will have share equal to or less than 9, retail category comes down to 306000 and entitlement improves to around 54%.

        But again, if you consider margin, it is very small as compared to other buybacks plus its a big size share so I don’t expect a huge response from public (even the announcement did not created much impact on the prices, volumes are less.). Therefore, expecting 80% of the people to get into the buyback which improves my acceptance further to around 70%.

        A lot of assumptions have been used, but I still feel those are realistic assumption.


      Reason is probably , that actual retail is one having less than 10 shares…
      people don’t like to hold such HIGH COST Share..

    Outlook for FY 2019 remains optimistic.

    The management is glad by the jump in India’s ease of doing business.

    In the past quarter, Bosch has outperformed the industry in business beyond mobility sectors as well.

    As a recognized industry leader in many sectors, the company will continue to present innovations across its business including IoT services and integrated mobility offerings.

    Growth in CV was aided by government focus on infrastructure and higher demand from Nepal and Bangladesh. It also grew on the back of new product launches.

    Bosch in India employs over 31000 associates.

    The Bosch Group operates in India through thirteen companies.

    Last year the company got hit by GST.

    Bosch is the largest after market player in India. After market grew 21%. There is no reason why it won’t grow well in the future.

    It is a very small Buyback. So no point of participation for this specific purpose. However, as a long-term investor, this is a very good company for investment.
