    Congrats to the Participants… 100% Acceptance Ratio.

    The price spiked up as the buyback was announced. However, even if somebody bought the share on 10.10.2018( the next day of announcement) at Rs. 81, the total gain is close to 8%.

      YES !!! Thanks Market Wizzard!!
      8% profit with 100% acceptance much better than 15% but with 30% acceptance…

      I liked it !!

    Shares reserved for Retail Category are close to 2.128 Cr.
    Shares bid for till now -83,35,197
    Great !!!
    100% acceptance for retail!!!.
    Although only 10% profit, still goo…

    Acceptance seems to be coming 100%…
    Good buyback, although not much gain in %age…

    The ratio of the Buy-back: (i) in case of Small Shareholders, 49 Equity Shares
    for every 65 Equity Shares held by such Small Shareholder on the Record
    Date; and (ii) for Eligible Shareholders other than Small Shareholders, 39
    Equity Shares for every 485 Equity Shares held by such Eligible Shareholder
    on the Record Date ,

      Considering, even if 70% (which is very unlikely, as normally 50% do) retail apply for buyback. the acceptance would be 100%.

    Have anyone received buyback offer for NLC India? I mean the email for eligibility?

    i think only two website provide buyback latest information.

    BHEL Approves Buyback up to 189.3 Million Shares and Rs. 86. 20% Premium to CMP.

    Acceptance Ratio Calculation:
    No. Of Shares Reserved for Reatil= 2.83 CR
    As per Sept 18 shareholding pattern, the number of investors having shares up to 2 Lacs of paid-up Capital is close to 15 CR.
    As per the above figure, the Acceptance Ratio would be 18%

    No. Of Shares= 43,95,610
    Price= Rs. 455
    Total AMount =200 Cr
    A Retail investor can buy 440 Shares( 2lakh/455) to participate in the buyback.
    As per Mar 18, the number of investors having shares between 1-500 are close to ~73 Lakh.
    The No. of Shares reserved for Retail Investor in Cochin Buyback is close ~6.60 Lakh.
    As per above figure the Acceptance Ratio would be 9%

    1. Shares reserved for Retail Category are close to 2.128 Cr.
    2. As per March’18 Shareholding Pattern, the total number of shares up to 3000 is ~2.17 Cr
    3. As per June’18 Shareholding Pattern, the total number of shares up to 20k is 2.77 Cr.
    4. Assuming total shareholders till Record Date is ~3 Cr.
    5. Then Acceptance ratio would be close to 70%.

    If Share price move closer to buyback price than 100% Acceptance also possible.


    Subject: Outcome of the meeting of Board of Directors of the Company held on Friday,
    October 12, 2018

    The proposal to buyback not exceeding 67,3 I 1,386[Six Crores Seventy Three Lakhs Eleven
    Thousand Three Hundred and Eighty Six on/y]equity shares of Rs. 5/- each of the
    Company(representing 3.48% of the total number of equity shares in the paid-up share capital
    of the Company) at a price of Rs. 75/- (Rupees Seventy Five only)

    Don’t Jump to buy immediately!!
    It’s already up and market is very good today!!
    May be good at Rs 72-76/- and possible in 2-3 days..
    I would buy in staggered from 78 towards downside.

    This is the new technique Govt is using to meet their target of disinvestment. Actually, in every budget, the govt has a fixed target of disinvestment. Now we have already seen that meeting of disinvestment target through IPO in this market is looking very bleak. The recent listing of PSU has made big holes in the pocket of investors. So investors will think twice-thrice before applying in upcoming PSU IPOs.

    So what is the way left for the govt?

    The answer is the buyback.

    The question is How?

    The Govt is now targeting cash-rich PSU companies, meeting their board members and convincing their board to bring buyback. The govt will participate in the buyback and money received via buyback will be used to meet the target of disinvestment.

    Now you all must have got the answers why so many PSU companies are suddenly coming up with so may buybacks.

      Action of current govt is not investors friendly.. See some of decisions:
      1) Introduction of Long Term gain tax
      2) Soveriegn Gold bond sold at such a high rate that the sale rate never achieved again even though actual gold price has crossed
      3) Most govt sector IPOs has been highly priced
      4) In buyback also, prices are being kept like no one can think of..

      So, investors, beware of this govt decisions and do not rush to govt companies buyback immediately.
