    Forum mentioned that they may called off buyback .is it possible?? I doubt it

      I think once announced buyback thn they cant cancel it any way.
      Waiting for experts comments.

      @Ayush ji any idea on cash of this company which they may use in buyback.

        Mohsin Ji, Kama Holdings has good cash and bank balance in FS as of 31-03-2022 to fund the buyback.

        Buyback size can vary from 35 crores to 95 crores if we calculate a range of 10% to 25% of PUC+FR in FS as of 31-03-2022.

        Moreover, there is no past history of the buyback of this company. So it’s difficult to predict whether it will be an open market or a tender route BB.

        Someone saying company sold out 6 lkh shares of SRF in last quarter. Around 150cr amount.
        If promoters holding 75% so i think they compalsary need to participate and so may be it come tender route buyback.

          Mohsin Ji, yes you are right it will come as tender route BB. Good Analysis by you👍. I was reading in the BSE announcement section where the company mentioned that they would decide on the quantum and mode of buyback, appointment of intermediaries and other matters incidental thereto including Record Date.

          So we can conclude that the record date is only announced in the case of the tender route.

            Please provide your insight on ER after the BB details are out of KamaHolding.

            And moreover, I read your message about HGS BB where you mentioned it would announce BB around 19th Dec, can you please provide the source of information?

      The company has a good amount of Investments in its book as of 31-03-2022. If we consider 25% of Paid up capital and reserve then the maximum size of buyback in Bajaj Consumer will be around 200 crores.

      Dear Girishji, Nice to see this advance info on buyback…..From where do you track these info, so that we can also consume it. Thank you

      Sorry for delay,bajaj information on cnbc strip on tv ,kama holding here only some on chittorgar app some on investor zone and some time in interviews. No fix place

    Jagran Crossed 75, Buyback price… 100% AR confirmed!!! :-}

    Please be very careful. Very bad results. Very small equity, can easily be swayed. I would wait till final document before taking any action.

      Such comments are helpfull. I hope collective sharing are helping us .Thanks

        Freshtrop buyback will be of a very small amount.

        As per the financial statement of 31-03-2022, they have an Investment, cash and bank balance of around 2 crores. So be careful about this. If already holding or purchased in the last 2 days it is suggested to book profit in this because the price increased sharply in the last 2-3 trading sessions.
