    someone help me i am new to investing i buyed Kaveri seeds share on 6th january, 2020 and applied buyback for 50 shares now today it is 21 january, 2020 i not got my money and also not got shares in demat account, please tell me what to do ??????

      Abhishek Ji, first of all, to be eligible for buyback you must have shares in your demat before 22.11.2019 i.e. Record date of Buyback. So, you were not eligible for the buyback. Do not worry you will get your shares back in next 1-2 days.

    Buy back closed yesterday. Any analysis as to what could be the AR? This is just by curiosity.

    Dear MW..I purposely buy 1 share of Kavery seeds for tendering in buyback. Can I tender that 1 share in the buyback window period.I.e from 31st DEC. What will be the probability of such shares for acceptance in buyback ?

      Please don’t worry. You can still participate in the buyback. Some time due to email id not properly updated with Registrar, such an issue may come.

        Thank you very much for your reply. I always receive dividend email though.

        And just one more thing wanted to know that how would i know that out of 50 how many shares am I eligible to participate in buyback.

        Thank you.

    Sir I have 1993 shares @535/. of kaveri seeds.I have recd mail that 77 shares are entitle for buyback.
    .what should i do ?

    Kaveri seeds buy back retail entitlement 16 out of 83 . Around 19 %

    Dec mahine me to lene wale hai ki nahi malum nahi, abi tak inaka mail conformation aya nahi

      Kaveri has already filed Letter of Offer with SEBI. Probably by mid Dec 2019 the offer should open.

    Any idea about AR of buy back in 2017-2018 & 2018-2019? Just want to know to have rough idea about expected AR of current buy back.

      In 2017-18 the prevailing market price during Tender period was more than the buyback price which was 675 those days. In 2018-19 market price was above 625 closer to tendering period. This year Kaveri is out of FnO and you can see Market price today and acceptance might be lower than 60%. Though things depend on how many people have lapped up the stock just for buyback.

      Just a few days back stock was beaten to 460. The bump in price is due to buyback, AR of 10-15% does not mean much if the stock cannot sustain 500 plus levels post completion of buyback. This trade to buy just for buyback may not be profitable at current price.

    Anyone tried unlisted zone?? I want to buy some unlisted script but is it trusted ? Anyone share experiences

      Yes ! you can trust these people. My many friends has done trade with them. They are truly professional.

    You can start buying *1 Share* of Kaveri Seeds for buyback. CMP is 503 and bbprice is 700 so Rs. 200 (-brokerage) guaranteed profit.

      @Marketwizard, Can you explain why only 1 share ? Why shouldn’t i buy more ?

        Yes, you can buy more. However, this one share strategy works when there is large arbitration available between current market price and buyback price. The current market gap is 474 and the buyback price is 700. So if you have say 10 accounts, then buy 1 share from each account. In case 1 share is accepted, you will get a profit of 10*(226)=2260.


        Please contact your broker and ask how much they charge brokerage for Buyback. For Zerdoha,

        ₹20 plus GST will be charged for buyback /takeover/delisting orders placed through Console.

        ₹100 plus GST will be charged for the orders placed manually.
