    Is there any scope to keep this share?…how much chances are there to rise nearby 400?

    Promoter participation or not does not impact small shareholder acceptance ratio. Because 15% reservation is of total shares.
    Where promoter do not participate, small shareholder do not have advantage then others.

    Company looted the innocent share holder. They gave shares@645 in ipo four years ago and now BB it @550 and that too only 11%. This is the condition when promoters have not participated in BB. If they had participated than I think acceptance ratio would be merely 5%

    So what about the remaining shares?… What if price drops so badly after buyback?

      Hold the shares. Don’t sell at a loss. Wait for the price to go up after announcement of Annual Financial statement and dividend and then sell for a profit. The scenario is the same for all Buy Back offers where there was a huge difference between BB price and the Market price just before Record date for buy back
      In the case of Monte Carlo the no. of share holder in the retail category as on 31-12-2018 was only 33801 and on record date it is 41182 – an increase of 7381- these are new buyers for taking advantage of BB and make profit within a short time, also some holder whose value was more Than 2 lakhs sold their shares to come into the reserved category. That is the reason why Eligibility ratio was also low. All those who bought to take advantage of BB also tendered their Shares for BB. Hence overwhelming response leading to low Acceptance ratio.

    |2| out of |18|MONTE CARLO FASHIONS LIMITED. shares have been accepted in the Buy-Back offer.

    Tomorrow is the last date for settlement of BB and payment for accepted quantity etc. Is there any news on acceptance ratio. Unlike Karvy, Link intime does not give any website information regarding acceptance etc. Very poor Registrar and Manager of BuyBack.

    After analysing the EOD position as on 1st April, I think the acceptance ratio for reserved category could be between 10-12% only.

    Two more days to go for closing of offer period. The acceptance for Reserved Category may be between 40 and 50 %. Let us wait and see.

      subscription in retail category is almost 7-8x then how acceptance will it be 40-50%?

        How did you arrive at 7-8x times? You can’t take all individual investors as small holders. I have given the acceptance ratio for small holders (Reserved category).

    Where we can get subscription status of Monte Carlo Fashions Buy Back?

      Got the information from the link provided by you at the right end for Monte Carlo Fashions. Thank you. This information is for total Individual shares tendered there is no seperate data for reserved category and hence should not be used for comparing with reserved qty.

    For IOC dividend march 2019, would I be eligible if I buy it’s shares today?

      Total Tendered (individual ) is 1355808. If we consider 20% of this as Small Holders , it will be 271162 against 150000 Reserved quantity.

    Is anybody received buyback offer letter…….. I have received but entitled shares are not displaying in that………. entitled portion is cutting in email…………

    After seeing entitlement ratio feeling cheated…………. SEBI please help…………….

    When offer size is 10.56% and there is 15% reserve portion for Retailers than how it is 10 out of 153 ie only 6.53% for retailers

      Total Buyback —————————————- 10,00,000
      Reserved for small shareholders (retail) ——- 1,50,000 (15%)

      Total shareholding ————————————- 2,17,32,064
      Small shareholders on record date ——————- 41,182
      Small shareholders holding on record date ——– 22,93,383

      150000 / 2293383 = 6.54% (Entitlement ratio – Retail)

      General category shareholding = 2,17,32,064 – 22,93,383 = 1,94,38,681

      850000 / 19438681 = 4.372% (Entitlement ratio – General)

        In that case as promoter is not participating so approximately 1,40,60,000 shares not eligible,
        so hypothetically remaining balance 850000/5378681 = 15.80% (Entitlement ratio – General)
        which is more than Entitlement ratio of Retail by 2.41 times !!!!!!!!! AMAZING

    If buyback offer size is 10.56 % then how come both retail and general ratio is less than that ?

    10 out of 153 for Retail Investors.
    8 out of 183 for General Category.

    It may be bear trap. Mind it!! Hold tightly and do not sell any share. If BB approved by SEBI it will shoot up to level of 2700 rs .

    AR may be only 10 to 15%. So do not tender unnecessarily more share. Because you could not sell it on time after buyback as there is more chance to come down it’s share price heavily.

    If i buy on 22 Feb, will i eligible for buyback? (technically i will be shareholder, but physically shares not yet credited to my account)

      No , you bought on 22feb but your demate account will be crdited on 26th feb
      That’s why you will be treated as share holder on 26 feb

    Down 6% at the opening. Today is Ex-date. So all are selling.

          But during NMDC Buyback i sold my shares on 17th Jan. The record date for NMDC Buyback was 18th Jan. I didn’t got any mail from NMDC regarding the buyback. I contacted zerodha regarding this, they told that you should not sell your shares till the record date. Even if you would have sold on 18th Jan. you would not have been eligible for buyback. Kindly guide me for this.

Kindly guide me for this.

            Below is the reply given by zerodha to me

            Please note, To become eligible shareholders in the buyback offer the shares must be available in your dmat account as on the record date, since you have sold the shares on 17th Jan, it got debited on the next day (T+1 day) i.e.18th Jan which was a record date.

            Technically you should be eligible, because if you sell shares on ( which mostly all big investors do) , then it should be debited after T+2 days i.e. after Record date. But in Zerodha maybe they are removing your shares from demat account very next day of selling and making you ineligible for buyback which is technically not correct.

            In zerodha if you sell shares then they move it to zerodha pool on t+1. The shares from pool get debited on t+2. Hence as of record date shares will be in zerodha pool account which is not a retail account. And zerodha will not apply for buyback for you.

      @Market Wizard Please elaborate what is Ex-Date and why is everyone selling on the ex-date? What should a smart investor do?

        Ex-Date is one day prior to Record Date. If you sell on Ex-date you will still able to tender your shares in the buyback.

        Let us suppose you have 100 Shares in your demat account as on Record Date. Now till record date, nobody knows the exact number of Entitlement or Acceptance ratio. What smart investors do, they sell before the Record date and then wait for the announcement of Entitlement ratio(Minimum number of shares that will be accepted 100%) by the company. Once it is announced, they again buy that much from the market and tender the shares in the buyback.

    But tomorrow will it continue it’s up move or fall? Have any idea? As tomorrow is ex buyback date.

    One thing we observe that even after announcement of buyback issue, this stock is not still moving up at all. I think most of the investors want to avoid to take participation in this issue. If that so, should we expect acceptance ratio will be on higher side.

    As per public announcement:

    In terms of the Buy-Back Regulations, under the tender offer route, the Promoter of the Company has an option to participate in the Buy-Back.

    However, Promoter and/or the Promoter Group vide letter dated November 28, 2018, have expressed their intention about their non-participation in the Buy-Back.

      Dear Wizard,

      Based on your statement, I have a question. If promoter is not going to participate in Buyback, the Buyback number of shares (10Lakhs) will not change for sure.

      Will it be useful for Retailer Quota? any increase in AR for Retailers…?

    E voting केलिए link क्या है
    कोई बता सकता है?

    Kya ab ye bhi larsen jaisa karega?😂
    Ya koi ummid baki hai
    Maine 400 share 385/- main liye hain

      E-voting is in process, that has to complete first, record date next, after that with in (around) 45 days time they should announce the dates for buyback.

      Exit or continue is upto you.
      Very difficult to suggest. Many buyback tenders end up with losses for retailers.

    Monte Carlo issued Notice for postal ballot and electronic voting Feb 07 is last date for e voting.

    Hello Market Wizard,
    Where at Zerodha? Not able to find. Kindly suggest, I also use Zerodha.
    I am looking, how to participate in IDBI – LIC OFS

      Please Check-in Q Zerodha. I have just Confirmed from Zerodha Call Center.

    Also please suggest difference in Buy back and Open offer for the share holder or selling person.

      In OFS the existing shareholders sells his/her shares to other people generally at discount to the market price. However, in the buyback, the company takes back shares from existing shareholders and Extinguish the shares.

      In IDBI Bank OFS, the LIC is basically acquiring stakes and they are buying close to 204 Cr shares at Rs.61.23 from existing shareholders. The LIC is paying in cash close to 12602Cr.

    Hello Experts!
    Any idea of open offer?
    How can I sell in IDBI Open offer (by LIC)??

      Zerodha gives the facility on its platform to apply for OFS.

        Where at Zerodha? Not able to find. Kindly suggest, I also use Zerodha.

    If I buy stocks prior than the record date is even listed out, would I be eligible to participate in buyback?

        and everyone was thinking that it will take a big jump, market never stops to astonish

        Also investerzone team has given rating of 5 which is pretty good,as per your opinion one houldn’t wait for buybcak

          If entitlement ratio already expected 7%, who will want to burn fingers. Those entering into this will burn finger like MPHASIS.

    Total no.of shares buyback — 10,00,000
    Reserved shares for retailers — 1,50,000
    Retailers shares holding as on 30 Sep —- 20,38,733
    Entitlement ratio (as per 30 Sep) —- 7.36%

    ** Actual entitlement ratio will be calculated as per holding on record date


      When you will receive the Actual letter the entitlement could be much less because during 90 or 100 days leading to buyback alot more number of shares are going to change hands.

      how did you get this data
      retailers holding shares “Retailers shares holding as on 30 Sep —- 20,38,733”

      and i think company calculates the retails investors as per their shareholding taking Face price as price and not CMP, while for buyback purposes CMP is considered and therefore the entitlement ratio would be much better.

      correct me if i am wrong, i am just a novice trying to learn the trade

    As per Annual Report of 2018,

    The Number of shares between 0 to 1000 is close to 14 lakh. So if we consider this number as total number of shares under Retail Investors quota on the Record date , the Entitlement Ratio could be 15%.

    What I feel is this can be a good trading bet. However, a lot of action on the political front is waiting in coming days so be careful. The Nifty also has a dream run from the levels of 10200 to 10900. Somewhere down the lines, it will cool off. So trade accordingly.

        Record of Monte carlo to reward its investor is not good. However, this could be a good trading bet. Take 5-7% gain and exit. Don’t wait for buyback.

        Entitlement ratio gives us the exact number of eligible shareholders for buyback which is there in the company’s book on the Record date. This is announced in the letter of offer.

        Acceptance Ratio: This is the final ratio depending upon the no. of shareholders tendered their shares in the buyback. It is announced after completion of the buyback.

        Minium Acceptance Ratio = Entitlement ratio

    Huh.. Potential Upside of more than 40% from CMP of 388.

    Yesterday, RAJASTHAN GLOBAL SECURITIES PVT LTD BUY 1,11,837 at Rs. 373.73 .

    Now today buyback price announced at 550.

    These funds houses may be knowing in advance the price of the buyback.
