    *Ntpc Buyback*



    I had 1200 shares of ntpc on record date. I want to sell and buy 200 now. Am I eligible to submit 1000 for buy back?

    As on record date of NTPC buyback, I was having NTPC shares in my Demat account with Karvy stock broking, now I get transferred my shares from Karvy broking to some other Demat account, I want to know How I can tender my shares for buyback through other broker, which was held in my old Demat account and were eligible for buyback but now transferred to a new account through offline transfer/ transfer of account

    I want to know that Can I tender more share in respect of eligible share for buyback means suppose I have 1000 share of any company before record date and my eligible share for buyback as per accepting ratio of 50% is 500 , can I tender full 1000 share for buyback.

      Yes and you should!!
      But the acceptance of the extra share would depend on the extra share submitted and eligible shares NOT Submitted by others.
      Seeing current condition, it appears approx 50-60% of extra can be accepted…

      I had 1200 shares of ntpc on record date. I want to sell and buy 200 now. Am I eligible to submit 1200 for buy back?

      You can definitely tender more shares than entitlement. The maximum no of share that can be tendered in buyback by a share holders is however limited to no of shares held on record date.

    Bought 1100 shares before record date and sold 800 in slight profit on Diwali. Hope remaining would be accepted in buyback…
    Any idea of acceptance ratio.

    Market Wizard Sir,
    Your posts are very informative.
    Please give your opinion on other buy back offers viz NMDC, Indian Toners and Mayur Uniquotes.
    Thank you

    Sir i have 2000 shares in my demat account .am I eligible for buyback ? How many shares I need to put in buyback .pls suggest

    sir i have online demat account with edelweiss what is last date of buying ntpc share for buyback

      Yes you are eligible. The main point here is to ensure that the shares are present in your demat on the record date.

    Why HPCL is still not considered for even mentioning in this portal.Today they have declared buyback price rs 250

    if record date is 11 Nov, then which is last date for buying? and on which date we can sell all shares? i have account in Zerodha.

          You can sell the shares on the next day after the record date .If you want .The main point here is to ensure that the shares are present in your demat on the record date.

        On 14
        You can sell
        If you expect acceptance ratio will be 50%
        Then keep 50% holding and sell the remaining
        If u think price will crack further in future then sell fully and buy at lesser price the shares equivalent to expected acceptance ratio

    Can some expert please explain if NTPC buyback is also subject to Shareholder approval like TCS?
    If not, why so? I see that record date is already announced, so looks like approval is not required.

      Not required. If the buyback size is less than 10%. No approval is required.

    *Msearch NTPC Buyback update*

    *What should retail investors do with NTPC post buyback announcement?*

    Key data points for buyback acceptance:
    Total offer size : ₹ 2,275 Cr or 19,78,91,146 shares
    Buyback price: ₹ 115/-
    Buyback Offer Size: 2.19% of paid up capital
    FV: ₹ 10
    Buyback type: Tender offer
    Acceptance ratio: Approx. 30-60%

    *Msearch View:*
    We believe that the proposed buyback will be in the interest of retail investors as the shareholders of the company will benefit from return of surplus cash through the buyback programme. Stock has been an underperformer, and has already shed one-fourth of its value year-to-date and recently the stock has seen traction on the back of hopes of a buyback and looking at the proposed buyback rate of ₹ 115 against CMP ₹ 86 translating upside of 34%. As per our calculation acceptance ratio comes around 30-60% which is attractive to retail investors. NTPC also offers a healthy dividend yield of 7%-8% and is trading at an attractive valuation with P/E of 7x and P/BV at 0.7%. *Hence we recommend retail investors to buy NTPC with an opportunity to make decent gain on the back of buyback.*

      Cosmo Films is not that much of an trustable scrip for arbitrage as the recent jump is due to buyback announcement and the CMP is unsustainable .This buyback will be a classic trap as after the ex-date the price will correct to an huge extent and to sell rest of the unaccepted holdings after the buyback you may have to wait for at least 1-2 years as this is an range bound low volume scrip.

    Why stock of NTPC is underperforming in the last 5 years?

    1. NTPC main problem is the huge trade receivables which has increased from 8000 Crores to 20000 Crores in the last 5 years. This means the company is not getting payments from DISCOM in time.

    2. India is a country of surplus power. This means capacity is more and demand is less. NTPC plants hardly run on their capacity.

    3. Lower tariff of solar energy has reduced drastically in the last years denting the revenue of NTPC.

    In short, power companies in India are struggling.

    Why NTPC is coming up with a buyback?

    The cash of NTPC is on decline.

    2015= 14000 Crores

    2020 = 3000 Crores

    Now with this buyback, the cash will reduce further. Then why they are bringing buyback.

    The reason is government finances are in doldrums. The fiscal deficit is touching 7-8% and with projection of GDP decline of as high as 10% means , the government main source of income i.e. taxes are not coming think and fast due to COVID-19 disruption.

    So, that is why Government has decided to do buyback of 8 PSUs to suck out cash.

      Any view on what could be the Buyback price?

      How does buyback price gets determined…i am still learning so trying to understand.

        The buyback price is decided by management. Most of the time it is more than CMP in the market.

          1. To be eligible for the Retail Investors the number of shares should be around 1740 Shares.

          2. The number of shares reserved for Retail investors are 29683671.

          3. As per Annual Report, no. of shares between 1-5000 are 145804644.

          4. So, if we divide 29683671/145804644 = 20%.

          5. So, on an approximate basis, the AR could be around 30%. If the price moves towards the buyback price, then AR could be even higher.
