    For Matrimony:
    Increase from 650 to 750 is frightening for me. The gap is too high..
    It may be overall loss .. I would avoid till it reaches 700 or lower..

    Motilal Oswal Financial Services Buyback Particulars:

    Buyback amount: Rs.160 Crores
    Mode : Through Tender Offer
    Record date : Yet to be announced
    CMP: Around Rs. 851/-
    Happy investing to all of you. Thank you.

      Thanks SRK, Motilal and matrimony not excited me.. Current market condition is bad…
      Also acceptance ratio would be low also last results were really bad..
      Looking at Ambuja and ACC instead for open offer… There is also no 15% funda and AR is normally very high..
      What is your suggestion..

    Purchased 30 shares @ Rs. 765.05. Planning to purchase 20 more shares @ Rs. 750.05, if available. Thank you.

      Are you considering that 35% of small investors will apply for buyback ( for determining AR )?

    Entitlement may be around 5.7% considering the 10.07% of Retail Shareholding patterns at present.

    Good news is that promoters are not participating. And, they hold 50% stakes in the company.

      Is there any benifit to retail/small shareholders if promoter not participate? Why the price not decided yet and yet to be approved by shareholders?

      Sir,
      Thank you very much for your kind n useful information.
