    It appears that good tender buyback offers would take some time. I feel that market Buyback are absolutely useless untill a very large equity in terms of 20-30% is not bought. 2-3% make no difference.

      Sumit ji,
      I too believe that the fruitful era of the Buybacks has gone. I understand that the number of investors in this regard have been increased in multiple folds resulting in low ARs to the reasonable extent.

      Yes sir, I do agree with you. I have made good profits in buy back. But the latest in which I have participated Star Cement & Nucleus Software, I am at a considerable loss. However, I am still holdding the unaccepted shares of both. We should take a break for sometime so far as buyback is concerned.

    Let us hope that at least the buyback of SIS will be through the Tender Offer.
