    Don’t jump in bse.

    1-1 share wali startegy pe Chalo.

    Market condition is very poor.

      can you please elaborate about what you meant by “1-1 share wali startegy” .Please do so urgently.

    what will be expected acceptance ratio in bse buy back, please share. At current price can we buy bse shares?

    what is the record date of buyback?
    please share some news market wizard sir.

        i am new for buyback.
        kindly want expert advice.
        if i purchase 1 share of any company before record date so i am eligible for buyback
        now i gave that 1 share in tender offer in buyback and suppose AR is 20% only.
        so company will accept my that 1 share? or they will reject it.
        if Acceptance ratio is so less so in that case company have to accept 1 share from all eligible accounts or not?

    It is informed that 29.07.2019 is record date for eligibility of buyback of BSE shares but doesn’t find such news in media, please confirm.

    Will this buyback be affected by the new tax introduced on buybacks in the budget? IS there a chance that the board will cancel buyback and instead opt for dividend to avoid high tax outgo?

      We just need to wait for management decision.

    The buyback price is lower than the IPO price. Why should it pay buyback tax?

    As record date is not announced, 100% possibility of BSE cancelling the buyback. Wait for good dividend announcement in the next board meet.

    I was lucky to sell 200 shares at 615 few days back and not waiting for buyback record date.

    Experts any advise on BSE ? 13.61% size is a big number. Also they have announced a dividend of 30/- per share.

    Do you think below 600 is a good price to enter in this script ?

    How many shares in retail quata under Rs.200000 as per Last share holding data?

    Is it good idea to buy at current rate of 596 to participate in the buy back – pls advise

    Can we now buy BSE or wait for further fall due to fall in broader markets? I want to buy and participate in Buyback and Dividend so that any further fall in price after buyback can be cushioned a bit.

      There is no hurry dividend ex date is 28 June and buyback would be considered in AGM on 15 July 2019. The record date would be then in last week of July. If panic sets in on results day or post results we can have better prices much lower than 600.

    I think entitlement ln retail is always equal or more than general. It is never less than general.

    Kindly advise if in buyback participating in Retail category or Genery category will be beneficial..

    See the case of Balrampur Chini, the buyback size was 3.69%

    Entitlement based on Record date

    Reserved Category for Small Shareholders = 5 Equity Shares out of every 62 Equity Shares

    General Category for all other Eligible Shareholders = 3 Equity Shares out of every 89 Equity Shares

    There is an upside of 7.86% from Current Market Price. If we add the dividend of Rs. 25, then it becomes 11.7% .

    Total Shares reserved for Retail Shareholders are ~10 Lakh.

    As per Annual Report of 2017-18 no. of Individuals holding nominal share capital up to 1 Lakh are ~1.27 Cr.

    So Entitlement based on that would be 8%.

      How can entitlement be ever less than 13.61%. Can you enlighten us?

        13.61% is the total entitlement. Out of this 15% is reserved for retail.

        Case 1:

        Let us suppose 100 Cr shares are outstanding as on 31.03.2019 in the company.
        (i) Promoters & Others = 90 Cr Shares
        (ii) Individuals( Retail and HNIs) holding nominal share capital up to 1 Lakh is = 10 Cr Shares

        Company is doing a buyback of 15% i.e 15 Cr Shares. Out of this 15 Cr, only 2.25 Cr are reserved for Retail.

        Entitlement for Retail would be = 2.25/10= 22.5%. However, as 10 Cr shares held up with both Retail and HNIs so the final figure would be more than 22.5% for sure.

        Entitlement for General Category would be = 12.75/90= 14.1%.

        Case 2:

        Let us suppose 100 Cr shares are outstanding as on 31.03.2019 in the company.
        (i) Promoters & Others = 40 Cr Shares
        (ii) Individuals( Retail and HNIs) holding nominal share capital up to 1 Lakh is = 60 Cr Shares

        Company is doing a buyback of 15%(Buyback Size) i.e 15 Cr Shares. Out of this 15 Cr, only 2.25 Cr are reserved for Retail.

        Entitlement for Retail would be = 2.25/60= 3.75%. However, as 60 Cr shares held up with both Retail and HNIs so the final figure would be more than 3.75% for sure.

        Entitlement for General Category would be = 12.75/40= 31.875%

        So you can see how entitlement may be higher and lower in Retail and General Category depending upon the difference in percentage between the two.

        I do calculation only for retail. Please see if my calculation is correct.

          What if promoter will not take part? I think in this they willnot take part for only such minor return
          Mark my words ar will definitely more than 50 pc because of this dividend gem.

            There is no Promoter of BSE. Promoter holding in BSE is a big zero 0.
            Obviously promoter cannot take part in this buyback. BSE is a professionally run company.

          entitlement can’t be lower than 13.61% for retail in any circumstances.

            Will check my facts Pankaj Jii and revert. Thanks for pointing out the error.

          Min. 15% of buyback size is reserved for retail. Retail Quota is determined on a two part criteria. Retail quota can be higher than 15% but for that to happen their holding on record date should be greater than 15%.

          Which implies Retail Entitlement cannot be less than buyback size in any scenario which is 13.6%.

          See the extract from Today’s Balrampur Chini Page 35. There are two Criteria involved:

          In furtherance to Regulation 6 of the SEBI Buyback Regulations, the reservation for the Small Shareholders (Reserved Category), will be higher of:

          (i) 15% of the number of Equity Shares which the Company proposes to Buyback, which works out to 12,65,749 (Twelve Lakhs Sixty Five Thousand Seven Hundred Forty Nine Only) Equity Shares; or

          (ii) number of Equity Shares as per their entitlement as on the Record Date (i.e., 1,56,87,777 / 22,84,38,327 × 84,38,327), which works out to 5,79,494 Equity Shares. All the outstanding Equity Shares have been used for computing the Buyback Entitlement of Small Shareholders since the promoters and members of the promoter group also intend to participate in the Buyback.

            Will check my facts Gaurav Jii and revert. Thanks for pointing out the error.

    BB price is only 7%up, results is bad, dividend 30rs. Stock price should be goes low in short term..

      Yes, results are not as per expectation. Accumulate below 620 for buyback
