Review and Recommendation of Greaves Cotton Limited Buyback Offer 2019 by IZ team is: 2/10 Fair: 1-5 Good: 5-7 Excellent: 7-10 [ Entitlement 5-10%]


    I have received contract note from my broker for 55 shares against tendered 100 shares and entitlement of 37/310.

    a) BSE

    Under Individual Category total ~92 lakh shares are tendered.

    b) NSE

    Under Individual Category total ~11 lakh shares are tendered.

    So total shares tendered under the Individual category is ~1 cr.

    If we assume 50% shares tendered by Retail, then 50 Lakh is the figure.

    Retail Quota is ~ 20 lakh.

    So we can assume Retail AR would be close to 40%.

      From where did you get the figures for Individual Category? BSE website gives only the total which is 311.42% subscription. If you have any source link please share.

        Yes, you are correct Ranganathan Jii. I am just guessing from the trend.

        My working is slightly different. The retail shareholding is 6.55% of Paid Up Capital. Assuming that same %age of total bid qty (40484919), the bids under retail category is likely to be 2651762, and hence I expect AR of around 73%.

    Promoters are not participating in buyback. This is a good news since actual buyback ratio will be much more than 12%. Offer all the share u have on record date to get maximum benefits.

        Whenever the company announces buyback at that time it mentions whether promoters are participating or not.

    ER seems to be 12%
    We can expect AR around 15 to 20%

    Based on experience on other buybacks

    Got letter for 45/375 and this comes to 12% ER

    Hi, Just got email regarding this buyback. Is it really worth to participate on this buyback at current market condition. Bid price Rs.175/sh is hight than current market price. Then how it will work? Im not sure about this buyback. Folks, Please help me to know more about this please

      Did you holding shares on record date? If yes, then at what price did you buy it?

    Finally…buyback dates announced…been an extremely long wait…Oct 18 buyback opens…

    Is greaves buyback also expected from buyback tax after latest announcement by Nirmala mam ? Any idea since it says the companies that made public announcement before July 5 will be exempted

      Greaves Board resolution says. Rs………….. excluding taxes including buy back tax interalia………..
      This means BB Tax will be born by company.
      This is my understanding. MW Sir can throw more light on this.

      no buyback taxes for the company who have announced before 5th July and same apply for Greeves cotton.

    I had 310 shares as on record date which I sold today. With a dip, if it happens, I will purchase some shares near to my entitlement in BB. I expect that both ER and AR will be nearly same. So I hope purchase 100 shres only. Pl. guide me as to what quantity should I purchase?

    The company is not reluctant to push Buyback either they will wait another quarter for buyback or most probably SEBI will give permit them to Cancel Buyback as Tax laws have changed.

    BSE buyback is open now. Hopefully this will also open soon…. Anyway company future looks good. so not worried about investments.

    There has not been any update on buyback recently…even their audited results for q1 is done without a word about the buyback

    *Greaves cotton buyback* The Company has received interim observations from SEBI in regard to the draft letter of offer filed by the Company on July 4, 2019 and is in the process of addressing them.

    In light of the proposal to introduce a tax on distributed income by listed companies undertaking buyback of shares, vide the Finance (No. 2) Bill 2019 (introduced in Parliament on July 5, 2019), it is hereby submitted that the Company has filed before the Ministry of Finance and SEBI seeking clarifications and certain relaxations with respect to the Buyback.
