    Final Analysis of Just Dial Limited 2018 ( Return Analysis)

    1. Buyback Announcement date: 21.07.2018—– Share Price was 554.

    2. 250 Shares bought at Rs. 554 means an investment of 1,38,500.

    3. Retail Acceptance Ratio was 21%. i.e. out of 250 shares, 52 shares have been buyback by the company. Profit on Accepted Shares= 12,792

    4. The unaccepted Shares were given back on 10.01.2019. The share price on 10.01.2019 was 488. So if you sell the remaining 198 shares at 488, then a loss of 198*66= -13068

    5. Overall we can say it is average out.

    but as my buying price was as high as 1055 so I have no proft but my losses have reduced now..I have seen 2 buy backs of just dial ..both were smooth and good

    Thanks guys .. I got my money credited in my account ..Overall buy back was about 22 % which is lot healthy then what people were expecting !!

    So acceptance is out and not bad…
    Wizard ji, please put your profit /loss statement…

    If I have 18 stocks in 1 account that is zerodha and 8 in another say icici direct woud buy back be considered for both accounts or only 1

      You will be counted as a single person when PAN is same, irrespective of a number of Demat Accounts.

    Tomorrow on 09/01/2019, Accepted quantity can be checked with your Brokers as Exchange files will be available to download. Funds and unaccepted shares will be credited in Account on 10/01/2019

    (i) Last date of settlement of bids on the Stock Exchanges = 10 January 2019

    (ii) Last date of dispatch of consideration/share certificate(s)/ demat instruction(s)= 10 January 2019

    (iii) Last date of extinguishment of Equity Shares= 17 January 2019

    So all will get the actual detail of the number of shares accepted or not accepted on 10 Jan 2019. The Final Public announcement will be done after 17 Jan 2019.

    When will the actual buyback acceptance ratio declare? Is buyback done? I received entitlement eligibility mail from company but till date neither any share bought back nor I got any communication of buyback..

      I hope you have already tendered your shares.
      As last date was January 1. Now company would return the shares not accepted in buyback, after deciding final acceptance ratio.

      You are right, just taking about tendered shares and AR based on that. Missed the 11%.

        In retail category there were 51800 shareholder on record date and 3593000 shares total shares on record date. Total 18000 retail shareholders participating in buyback but how much Quantity bid by retail holder .but as per my information acceptance ratio between 20 to 25 .

    Total bidding by 3.30pm is 42,61,302 by individuals, best on this AR is around 9.68%. very very poor benefit to retailers.

      Individual contain ( Retail and Non- Retail). So AR would be around 13-15% I guess.

    In individual category Approx 8 lakhs shares belongs to promoter group
    Post considering above what will be Approx AR?

      As off 28th Dec 2018 6.30 PM, based on tenders, present AR is around 13.09% only.
      If your assumption (8L shares belongs to promoter and excluded from tender, AR is around 16% only at current bidding status. TWO more days are there for tenders…. lets see what will be the AR…..

    As off 27th Dec 2018, Bidding Subscription details:-
    Reserved for Retail Category: 4,12,500 (All Individuals Category)
    Offered in Individual Category : 29,47,711
    Acceptance Ratio : 13.99% only. As we have time till 1st Jan 2019, it will go further down.

    As off 26th Dec 2018, Bidding Subscription details:-

    Dear Admin,
    Please change the BuyBack closing date, it is 01 Jan 2019, it display here as 21 Dec 2018.

    Pretty long wait on this one for Final Settlement. The announcements started July and the entire process would be closed in Second week of Jan. I sold my shares and now would buy a number closer to entitlement.

    Considering the big difference between CMP and buyback price the AR wont be more than 20%

    Entitlement of 7 shares for every 61 shares held under retail category on record date very poor entitlement ratio of 11%.

    The buyback is opening from 18.12.2018 to 01.01.2019

      Not announced yet. We will update here as soon as it is available.

    Can we offer shares in buyback from two different dmat account of same person. I have 100 shares each in two of my dmat accounts

      Do you have two demat accounts with two different PAN?
      if Yes, then you can apply else not.

          I think it is ok to apply via both, I have done before & both have been accepted. Same is the case with dividends, I receive dividend in both accounts separately.

    If sell shares after record date and buy before buyback start then will i eligible for give up my share to company?

    10% down. All the buyback stocks are getting a hammering.

    The Pledged Shares of Promoters are increased from 1.68% to 2.44% from Dec’17 to June’18.

    What is the purpose of buyback, when the Promoters are borrowing money by mortgaging their shares?

    AGM passed resolution including of Buyback!!!
    So Buyback approved!!!
    Record date to be in 1 month!!

    Today is the AGM, Buyback is the part of the yearly results and would be approved along with it, today..

    Anyone has any update?

      Post completion of Annual General Meeting, the scrutinizer took the custody of the Ballot Paper and post verification submitted their combined scrutinizer’s Report considering the result of remote e-voting and voting through Baflot Forms at AGM. As per the report submitted by the Scrutinizer, all the resolutions embodied in the Notice of 24h Annual General Meeting dared 20th Jury, 201g were passed with requisite majority.


    More than 2 months have gone from the date of announcement of Buyback. However, till date no announcement of postal ballot.

    Just Dial- Still no postal ballout notice. So it will take atleast 30 days from here on to decide record date.

    Wizard ji and Anand Ji,
    I agree to both…
    Market appears to be taking it the PCJ way, but the results and the history of Just dial buy back is different!!
    They have done buyback every year almost…
    Difference is this is tender type, while the previous was market buy.
    Any idea about the regulation to complete after declaring?

    There is nothing major wrong in recent results.
    The buyback price looks very attractive.
    Why should one not invest with expectation of even 50% acceptance at current price.
    Please guide !!

    Maybe people are thinking that it may go PC Jewelers ways where a lot of people were trapped at a higher price in anticipation of super buyback price. Had Just Dial buyback being so lucrative the price would have climbed up on the date of buyback announcement itself. If you compare recent buybacks of fundamentally sound companies such as HCL, TCS, L&T, and Mhapsis the appreciation from the date of announcement of the buyback was between 13 to 25%. On the other hand, Just Dial whose Business Model is in doldrums has announced a buyback with an appreciation of 40%. Sometimes market hints at the hidden information. So I guess something is definitely wrong in Just Dial.

    Why none is interested in Just dial, buy back??
    Am I missing some thing?
