    if i am sel today 31-10-18 cochi ship yard share then i am eligible for buy back…bu


      Yes. Company needs to close Buyback after 6 Months of the Record Date. Last Year Wipro had the Window open almost 4 months after the Record Date.

    BHEL approves buyback of up to 189.3 mln shares at 86 rupees/shr.
    5% of capital ; 20% premium to CMP

    No need to pay any special attention to this company just because they have come up with a Buyback.

    The Cochin Shipyard is fundamentally a good company. However, we have a history of so many stocks not performing beacuse of PSU tag and this one is no exception. The share Is trading below its IPO price which speaks about the confidence of the market in this stock.

    One Quick Solution that will work in Every Buyback.

    The biggest problem in Buybacks is to find out Acceptance Ratio.

    However, as a general check, we can always find the Rough Acceptance Ratio in any buyback.

    Let us suppose the No. of Shares Reserved for Retail Investors are 10K and they can buy maximum 2000 Shares to be eligible under Retail for buyback.

    Now to find out the Rough Acceptance Ratio we have to go to Shareholding Pattern of the latest quarter and have to figure out no. of shares up to 2 lakh Share Capital.

    2 Lakh Share Capital means = No. of Shares*Face Value
    No. of Shares= 2 Lakh/10= 20000[ Considering FV=10]

    So what does that 20000 means????

    It means there are “n” numbers of Investors who have for ex. 12, 49, 6660, 5555, 10000, 15000 etc shares in their account and whatever the number comes after adding all is suppose 100K.

    So what we understood till now??

    No. of Shares Reserved for Retail in buyback = 10K
    No. of Shares Retail investor can buy to be elgibile= 2000
    No. of Investors who are having shares up to 20000= 100K

    Now, this 20k figure will cover almost all the retail investors who are eligible for buyback.

    Acceptance Ratio would be =10K/100K= 10%.

      Technically you are incorrect. In shareholding pattern the holders holding Rs 2lacs capital is nominal capital however for the purpose of buyback the retail share holder having Rs 2lacs capital means 2 Lacs value at market rate on record date.

        It is a very good approximation. More so because most of the retailers are allottes of IPO .

    Not much upside plus the size of the buyback is very small.


    No. Of Shares= 43,95,610

    Price= Rs. 455

    Total Amount =200 Cr

    A Retail investor can buy 440 Shares( 2lakh/455) to participate in the buyback.

    As per Mar 18, the number of investors having shares between 1-500 are close to ~73 Lakh.

    The No. of Shares reserved for Retail Investor in Cochin Buyback is close ~6.60 Lakh.

    As per the above figure, the Acceptance Ratio would be less than 9%
