          Any information regarding the Acceptance Ratio in general category, if shared, will be appreciated. Thank you.

    Dear SRK ji
    Important point: Promoters having 71% equity would apply for only 11 L Shares i.e. 2.18% shares only. So condition similar to Nucleus, where small share holder may have small acceptance of 10-25% and other than small share holders would have 20-40%.
    Still, I feel like missing bus, as rate have appreciated from 485 to 512 and considering current market it may be possible that ultimately the return shares give more loss than gain in Buyback…
    I may buy more than 2L but at less than 500 only///
    Lets see, if it would be with me till 17th Feb, last day to buy for buyback

      Sumit ji,
      I am really indebted n grateful to you for your valuable guidance from time to time. I am learning a lot from your experience n expertise. Thank you once again for your kindhearted response to help me to learn more.

        Hello Sumit.
        Please check my analysis:

        Retail quota Total Retail share capital (less than 2 Lac holding) Min ER =Retail quota/total retail shareholders (if all participate)
        212.500 5.532.461 4%

        Non Retail shares (total buyback-retail quota) Total Non Retail share capital ER – Non Retail (if all participate)
        1.204.167 9.774.588 12%

        It is not same as Nucleus. for Nucleus it was 44% and not 12%

        Arbitrage is 15%

          Sir with what I understand from your analysis is that The Acceptance Rate under Retail is going to be very low. Do you feel we can expect 20-25% from General ? ’cause lower than that the margin of safety isn’t there at 515 CMP. Please advise.

        Total 360 shares purchased. May be missing by 25 shares, as the order is not completely executed, to be considered under the General Category AR in General Category is likely to be more than that of the Retail Category as you mentioned. Thank you for your kind guidance.

          Full stop missed between “ General Category “ n “AR”. Extremely sorry for the inconvenience caused.

      And i can also compare to Mayur. Promoters stocks who are willing to participate is 1.254.869

      Similar analysis gave me ER of 1% for retail, and around 10% for general (of all are willing to participate). I practice it will be more.

      And current arbitrage is 35%

      So from General category POV, should we not go for Mayur, instead of Gulf?

      Mr.Jain with what I understand from your analysis is that The Acceptance Rate under Retail is going to be very low. You’ve stated that AR in general could be between 20%-40%. Do you feel this is good enough margin of safety @515 CMP. Please advise.

      Your analysis looks OK except for likely acceptance in Reserved share holder category. I feel even the Entitlement ratio may be more than 30%.
