    Govt of India Announcement

    Aim ONGC_, @oilpr, BEL, To Buyback Shares Later This Month

    Expect ONGC Share Buyback Alone To Yield Rs 2,500 Cr

      Not possible. As per companies act, there should be atleast 12 months before a fresh buyback program

    Market wizard and vsk Sir, it is 100% sure that all share of retails will be accepted and from where 3.79 crores share reserved for retail you read. Please confirm the acceptance ratio.

    As per current figure from NSE, Looks like, for retail investors – 100% of the tendered shares will be accepted for buyback.. but have to wait and see on Feb 11 (last day of buyback).

    Tnank you very much should i send to company address or reg istrar to buy back os shares for ongc

    Is there anyway can we see how much ongc shares (percentage) subscribed as of now during buyback period (Jan 29 to Feb 11) ? i mean live update on buyback ?

    My broker is not registered with nse so I cannot particpate in buy back thogh i have 600 shares on record date. My broker is registered with only bse. So please advise how I can participate in ongc buy back

      You can fill form and send directly to company. Broker is not even involved in the process. Brokers only do this as courtesy to their clients. It’s fully within power of shareholder to directly do it with company.

      Hi wizard,

      Did you get the eligibility letter? I’ve not received the letter still. I was holding ONGC shares from many years but still I have not received any intimation. Can you guide me as to whom should I contact regarding this?

    Ongc…Buyback offer.opening on 29/01/2019 and closing on 11/02/2019

    Entitlement approx 26.5%

    is there any body applied for ongc buy back ? because didn’t see the buyback offer in my icici plateform.

      It has not opened yet. Once it is opened then it would be available.

    If AR is 50% according to IZ , only 4% will be profit(stock appreciation or depreciation neglected). How Can I Z give it 6 rating? Any one? No dividend also declare.

    ONGC just updates Exchange with its latest shareholding pattern. As per this report .. minimum acceptance ratio for retail shareholders on this forthcoming buyback will be 18%.

      22,88,34,041 are the no. of shares with face value consideration <2L.
      So actual holding would be much lesser.

    Please guide if anyone can….

    Lets suppose, I held ONGC shares on record date in demat account of XYZ broker. After few days I sold the shares.
    Then i bought it after few days the shares in demat account held with ABC broker( different from XYZ)..

    Please suggest if my shares will be accepted in buyback if I surrender through demat account held with ABC broker, inspite of I was holding shares with XYZ broker on the record date

      In my view, No problem if you same PAN in both the demat account. The company extracts the data of eligible shareholders for buyback from CDSL or NSDL. Brokers are the only link between You and depository.

      Entitlement Letter is directly linked with your Demat Account on Record Date. If due to some or any reason you say my Demat account is changed, I think you need to follow some procedure with RTA. You can check the same with RTA email stared on letter of offer

    Is it Ok to buy ONGC today for Buyback?
    According to T+2, shares should be in account by 4th i.e. record date.

    Please suggest.

      There is no special requirements for buying unlisted shares. You just need to have demat account for buying n selling unlisted shares.

      You can contact for buying n selling unlisted shares. The most trusted site in India.

      As per market Pandits the buyback price wont be above 900. However, I think it is a very good way of returning money to the shareholders when company do not have big investment plan in near future.

      It should be a very good oppurtunity for Infosys Shareholders.

        If we consider buyback price is around 850.

        Current market price is 660.

        Retail invester will get huge benefit.
        What is your opinion Market Wizard ji.

          Yes Definitely. However, the way US stock market is falling is a cause of concern for indian IT stocks. Let us see how situation unfolds in coming week.

      If you want to be eligible for a buy back of ONGC. You need to buy shares of ONGC till 1st January. Because a share to be credited into ur Demat Account requires trading + 2 days.
      1st jan will be the trading day other two days 2nd and 3rd Jan. 4th is the record date

    Selan Exploration Technology Ltd Board to consider Interim Dividend & Buyback of Equity Shares – Dec 27th

    Any idea when buyback open date and when the amount will be credited after buyback ? approximately atleast?

      Yes. You can tender shares in buyback if you hold them in your demat account before the record date and not the date of announcement of the record date.

    I have a query.. If I buy the Share before the record date for Buyback and sell after few day and buy back again before the offer period. Will that work ? Do they track if we are offering the same share in buyback which we had before the record date.

    Last few times, I see the Share value goes down after the Record date, and not worth holding till the buyback starts.


    Individual Shares( As on 31.03.2018)

    0-500= 66688511
    501-1000= 40310999
    1000-2000= 33342884

    Total between 0 to 2000= ~ 14 Cr

    Entitlement based on this = 27%

    Individual share capital upto Rs. 2 Lacs = 21,66,79,520( As on 30.09.2018)
    Retail Quota = 3.79 Cr
    Entitlement = 16%

    All these buybacks by govt will severely impact the balance sheet of ONGC and IOC. The Govt is forcing the cash-rich companies to pay their fiscal deficit bills. As market condition are poor, disinvestment via IPO is not feasible for the company so they are resorting to buyback.

    Keep an eye on ONGC for buyback. ONGC’s buyback has not been confirmed as yet but is expected to be around Rs 4,800 crore in size as per moneycontrol.
