    Hi market wizard,
    I bought shares of Dhanuka on 28th December, 29th and 30th were holidays, 1st is the exdate, am I eligible for the buyback considering that it takes T+2 days for stock to get into demat?

    Hi market wizard, please let me know should I buy it today for buyback??
    Current price is around 470 rs…
    Any idea about acceptance ratio?

    Board meeting is scheduled for December 20 to consider the final buy-back price, fixation of the record date and other related matters in respect of the proposed buy-back of equity shares of the company.

    Tata Investment Corp. a TATA Enterprise is going for 45L equity shares buyback @ Rs. 1000/- each. Announcement made yesterday.

      Just wait for the record date to announce. It might be available below 400 as a market condition is choppy which would be a good entry price considering low Acceptance Ratio. We need to understand that the condition of the economy is not sound. The way Govt is coming up with so many buybacks, OFS, asking Special Dividends from Power PSUs, intervening RBI to put liquidity in the system shows all is not good. So better wait and buy at the right price. Had we in 2017 I would have blindly said to buy at CMP but not anymore. Hope u understand.

    Mene mera profit book kar liya h
    MENE 387 per 815 SHARE buy kiye . &. 436 PER SELL aaj sare sell kar diye my profit is =39000

    As on 30 Sep
    Retail investors (holding below 2 lacs) — 40,29,423
    Buyback shares reserved for retailers — 2,25,000

    Entitlement ratio (as per 30 sep holding) — 5.65% Approx.
    Buyback gain from CMP – 34.5%

    ** Actual Entitlement ratio & Acceptance ratio will be different as per record date & shares tendered by retailers

    Quarterly numbers shown by Dhanuka Agritech are good.

    Particulars ——–Q2FY19 ———Q2FY18——— %Change YoY
    Revenue(Cr)——– 385——– 349 ——– 10.1%
    Profit(Cr) —– 52——– 55 ——– 5.7%
    EBITDA(Cr) ——-79 ——– 77 ——– 2.52%

    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.

      Individual Shareholders holding nominal share capital upto r,s 2 Lakhs is around 40 lakhs
      Does that mean that all of them will come under retail category?

        And sorry to say but i disagree with the approximation of acceptance ratio
        according to me acceptance ratio should be around 40%+

        in jan 2017 dhanuka had a buyback of 17% size and at that time shareholders with nominal share capital below 2 lakhs were around 36 lakhs
        yet the final acceptance ratio was 57%

        This time shareholders below 2 lakh are 40 lakh and buyback size is around 14&
        so acceptance should be atleast 40%

        please correct me if I am wrong

        No. This figure shows the list of shareholders who hold share between 0 to 1 lakh( 2lakh/2(fv)).

        But in the case of Dhanuka Agritech, the Retail investors would be who hold share between 0 to 350.
