    Dhanuka, very fast, Letter of offer submitted. Hopefully would get very good AR.

        Sumit ji,

        I have purchased only 153 shares in all for the two accounts due to the financial constraints. I am also positive on this buyback. All the best to you.

    Please excuse. Last Buyback was in 2020, where AR was very low. But company has moved much from there.. Hopefully 2022 would be profitable.
    Record date is not far..

    Checked in detail, comparison from 2018-19..
    Dhanuka very well poised.. Equity with Govt of Singapore, LIC and other good Mutual funds now.. Retail %age was 8.5% in 2018 December, which is now reduced to 6.63% (on reduced equity).
    Appears to be good Buyback after long time, bough 150 @ 731 today..
    Only worrying point is if markets sustains or crash..

      Sumit ji,

      Thank you very much for sharing your precious views. Please keep posting your valuable suggestions on each buyback of the Tender Offers. Very kind of you.

    Seems to be a good arbitration of 15-16%. Excellent results QOQ & YOY, so may reach 800..
    Last (2018-19) Buyback has acceptance of 75% for retail,,,
    Hopefully would be same..

    Buyback thru Tender route with target of 10,00,000 Shares at the buyback price of Rs 850/-
