    Appears to be a loss making company.

    How are they bringing buyback? Would SEBI approve?

      You can’t raise money for buyback and D/E should not go beyond 2 after the buyback, are some of the regulations which are needed to be followed to get SEBI approval.

    Last year’s size of the buyback was 54 Crores and AR was 56%. The size of the buyback last year was small. This year that will go further down as they don’t have much to offer in the buyback on their balance sheet.
