    Dear Sirs, Can someone advise where buyback has been upto. I mean record date has passed when th window for submission will open. Tx

    Record date for this buyback was 13th Aug. Share has been falling continuously after record date and it is at 52wk low level already.

    The upper limit is capped now. Better to buy share below 100.

    *************LAST YEAR BUYACK*************

    A) Strategy-1 ( Buy after buyback announcement and sell on Ex-date and then buy when LOF comes)

    1. Public Announcement = 04.05.2018, the share price was 106. So you must have bought 1666 shares which states an investment of Rs. 1,76,666.

    2. Buyback Size= 56,00,000 Shares

    3. Buyback Price = 120

    4. Record date= 18.05.2018. The price fell from 108 to 98 on Ex-date i.e. 17.05.2018. You also must have sold all 1666 shares on ex-date and buy again when LOF is announced. The loss of selling the shares on ex-date would be 1666*8= 13,328

    5. Letter of Offer given on 03.06.2019. As per the letter of offer, the Entitlement was 28%. So you may have bought 466 shares at 93.60 that means an investment of 43662 and tender these shares on buyback. So profit while tendering is 12302.

    So overall we can say in this strategy we may have occurred a loss of around 1000.

    B) Strategy-II ( Buy after buyback announcement and tender all shares in buyback)

    1. Public Announcement = 04.05.2018, the share price was 106. So you must have bought 1666 shares which states an investment of Rs. 1,76,666.

    2. Buyback Size= 56,00,000 Shares

    3. Buyback Price = 120

    4. Buyback opens up on 13.06.2018 to 26.06.2018. You must have tendered all 1666 shares in buyback.

    5. The Final AR was 100%. So your overall profit would be 23324

    So we can conclude that depending upon the strategy we can make profit n loss. However, which is the best strategy to gain from the buyback is still a difficult task to predict.
