    15% of 7,320,555 No. of Equity Shares =.11 Cr No. of Shares Reserved for Small Shareholders.

    Mphasis buyback –

    The promoters are also intending to tender their shares in the buyback by Mphasis In its report, *HDFC securities* highlighted that “Even assuming 60% acceptance ratio and the market price not falling below Rs 1,080 post the payout, investors can earn an absolute return of 8% (subject to short term capital gains tax) over the next 90 days (maximum average time taken from board approval to payout in recent tender offers) leading to an annualized return of ~32% p.a. Every 5% increase in acceptance ratio could improve annualized return by 4.7% p.a”.

    Mphasis in March 2017 also made a similar buyback offer during which shares tendered by the small shareholder category amounted to be less than the reserved portion for them as a result acceptance ratio turned out to be higher than the theoretical value arrived at for acceptance of shares by the company during the buyback.

    During last buyback 26 Lacs Shares were reserved for retail category and out of that only 23 lacs shares bid were received. So last time 100% shares were buyback. This time as on June 2018, Retail shareholders are having total 44,83,601 Equity Shares and assume this will go upto say 50,00,000 Equity Shares till record date. If we assume 50% of 50,00,000 shares will bid for Buyback then, Acceptance Ratio would be around 44-45%.

    Promoter’s would participate.

      Should we buy Emphasis at CMP for buyback purpose or wait for further downside.

      What is the safe level for this purpose?

      What does negative reaction after announcement signify?

        I would say we should start accumulating Mphasis at current levels and add on dips. We have seen how investors were waiting for TCS to fall below 1800 to make an entry but unfortunately, it didn’t break that level and inversely keep on rising from thereon. So averaging is a good option in Mphasis. The company has posted excellent Q1 numbers that will also support price. Please remember to be eligible for buyback under the retail category you should not have shares worth more than 2 lacs as on Record Date( which is to be announced later) else your bid will be rejected while tendering.

    Mphasis has made a stunning performance in Q1

    i) Net profit attributable to shareholders growing 38 percent to Rs 258.3 crore in the said quarter from Rs 187.19 crore in the year-ago period.

    ii) Revenue from operations increased 18.5 percent to Rs 1,820.22 crore in the quarter under review as against Rs 1,535.97 crore in the same period last fiscal.

    iii) The company has bagged deal worth USD 153 million in total contract value in Direct International business.

    Will also see participation from the Promoter in this buyback who has 52.36 percent shareholding.
