        Manu ji,

        We are disappointed with the AR. I have expected the AR of around 35%. Of course, I honour your opinion. Thank you.

          You may purchase the shares from market CMD 105 now.. for equal number of shares rendered thru Buyback… Profit approx 35/ share

          That’s why used term “decent profit”..

          Looking forward for more Buybacks..

    Expecting a reasonably good AR, to be known tomorrow, regarding the buyback of the shares of Star Cement Limited. Already enjoying the fruits of good profit in the shares of R Systems. Good luck to all. Thank you.

      I have yet not received any intimation from company or my broker. Has anybody received official communication?

        Tarun ji,

        Please check your trading account, wherein you may find the information regarding the accepted shares of Buyback. From that, you can arrive at the percentage of AR. Thank you.

    Sir what are the benefits to tender the share on last day or one day before last day as compared to tender the shares on first or second day…please guide us, thank you….sorry for repost

      Amit ji,
      Sometimes the market price reaches or exceeds the Buyback price during the period of buyback. To watch the market price and then to act accordingly, it is always advisable to wait for at least one day before the last day of the buyback. More over it is no way advantageous to submit the shares for buyback before the suggested period. I hope it helps you to understand the topic. All the best. Thank you.

    share on last day or one day before last day as compared to tender the shares on first or second day…please guide us, thank you

    Hi friends,

    One conceptual question.

    I had 1400 share of HPCL before record date of 8th Jul (bought in May’21). I sold 600 shares on 8th Jul’21.
    Today I got a dividend of 16399 Rupees. With dividend per share of Rs 22.75 and 10% tax deducted, It looks that I received dividend only for the 800 shares and not the 600 I sold on record date. My understanding was that If shares are sold on record date, seller still receives dividend.

    Thanks a lot

      Hey Nitin,

      You are definitely eligible for dividend on shares sold on Ex-date. If 08/07/2021 was ex-date and you sold your shares on ex-date, then kindly check the fund ledger of your D-mat.

      The dividend on the balance of 600 Shares will be credited to that ledger balance. In this case, shares go to the broker’s pool account after debiting from your D-mat and the broker gets the dividend from RTA and against which the broker credit that amounts to your fund ledger.

      If it is still not reflected in your ledger balance kindly contact your broker. You will surely get a dividend on that 600 Shares.

    Sir what to do with unaccepted shares of star cement.
    I bought 690 shares @ 115
    Will it be right decision to hold till price reaches 115…please guide, thank u

      Amit ji,

      Please submit all the 690 shares for buyback. Acceptance will always be better than Entitlement. On receipt back of the unaccepted shares into your d mat account, you have to decide whether the shares can be sold at market price or to hold for sometime depending upon the price. All the best. Thank you.

      Please ensure before posting whether the information is already furnished by someone in the site. It helps in avoiding duplication. Thank you.

    On zerodha how to apply for buyback. I got entitlement letter today. Only 10% share eligible.
    Will share price increase in stock market.

      Umesh ji,
      My sincere advice is to render the shares on the last but one day ( one day before the last date ) for buyback. Last day you may sometimes be having technical problems in the site or other problems n circumstances for various reasons. I don’t have any idea regarding Zerodha. But normally in the IPO page, you will find options like Buyback, OFS ( offer for sale ) , place order etc., . Please check up. If you still find difficulty you may approach Zerodha for necessary guidance. Thank you n all the best. Please update after done with.

      Umesh Ji , FInd the steps . Console –> Portfolio –> Corporate action .

      I am also first time applying .

      Sir what are the benefits to tender the share on last day or one day before last day as compared to tender the shares on first or second day…please guide us, thank you

    Friends – Few Queries:
    1. Say I have 1330 shares. I am entitled to tender 169 shares. Can I tender/offer full 1330 shares also?
    2. If I tender the shares online (I have zerodha account), do I need to fill any other form offline or follow any other process to successfully tender the shares or the online bid on zerodha is sufficient?

    Thanks for the help!

    I think 12.5% is considered. For 400 they have considered 50 shares for buyback

      As per the letter submitted to EXCHANGES, ER : One share is entitled against every 8 shares held by retail investors as on the Record Date.

    I got the email about Star cement buyback today.
    I had 3000 shares of Star cement on the record date of 26th August. I got entitlement of only 52 shares, which is less than 2%. I think this is because my holding is exceeding 2 Lakhs and it exceeds the retail category limit. My question is – if I tender shares worth < 2 lakhs, can I be considered in the retail category? Please advise. I was not aware of this rule.

    Mere pass 1300 share but mujhe mail aaya k me 165 share k liye hi Eligible hu. Aur kisi ko aisha mail aaya hai kya?

    Open date. 22 September 2021

    Happy to. Investors

    Ye week me date anounce ho sakti hai kya? Ya kisi ko perfect announce date pata chale to inform kijiye.

    Santosh Singh ji,

    I have reproduced your detailed illustrative explanation regarding the criteria for retail category in c/w the buyback of shares in another site with the belief n confidence that you won’t mind my doing so as it helps many a people to understand the subject comprehensively. If i caused any inconvenience n embarrassment by doing so, I wholeheartedly apologise. Thank you.

      Hopefully upto 40%. It’s all depends on the margin between the CMP and the Buyback price during the period of buyback. Happy investing n best of luck.

      Record date and opening date k bich me hum trading kar sakte hai k nahi? Agar record date pe mere pass 1330 share hai aur record date and opening date k bich me mere pass 2000 share ho jaye or wapish opening date me 1330 share rakhu to me buyback me participate kar sakta hu?

      As per my knowledge only record date is counted. And what u submit for buyback is counted. Other things will be egnore.

        Shares held on record date only will be considered for acceptance regarding the buyback of shares. If you render more no. of shares than that , they will not accept and you will be asked to submit the exact number of shares ( held on record date ).

    The meeting of board of directors of Kaveri seed company is scheduled to be held on 25/8/2021 to consider buyback of the shares. Please be attentive and have the details like Buyback price, Mode of Buyback, Quantity of buyback, Record Date immediately by updating the information to get maximum benefit.

      Buyback is through Open Offer @ not exceeding Rs.850/-. Max size 14,11,780 shares. Please be cautious and act accordingly.

    26 th. Date. Record. Date. So.
    Same. Day. Results. Declare. Or. Take. Time??

    Please Help I am new. In market
    So. Record date. I have. Some. Shares in my. Demat and. I. Participant. For. Buyback

    So I want to know. When. Company. Declare. Results. ?

    How many. Shares accept and. Another. Shares. Add. In my. Demat.

      Santosh sir.
      When is start Acceptance??
      Approx date

      And. How to know announcements. Date

    For being considered under retail category the value of investment should not exceed Rs.2 lacs.
    For calculating this limit of Rs.2 lacs shall we have to take the cmp as on the record date or else
    the buyback price? Can anyone please clarify?

      For calculating the retail category, the market price of stock at the end of the day for the highest volume exchange is taken…… Below is an example from one of the Buyback…..

      As defined under Regulation 2(i)(n) of the Buyback Regulations, a “Small Shareholder” is a Shareholder who holds Equity Shares whose market value, on the
      basis of closing price on Stock Exchanges as on Record Date, is not more than ₹ 200,000/- (Rupees two hundred thousand only). As on the Record Date, the volume of Equity Shares traded on BSE was 15,887 Equity shares and on NSE was 1,14,137 Equity Shares. Accordingly, NSE, being the stock exchange with highest trading volume, the closing price was ₹ 184.40 and hence all Shareholders holding not more than 1,084 Equity Shares as on the Record Date are classified as ‘Small Shareholders’for the purpose of the Buyback Offer…..

      Hope it is clear now….

        Santhosh Singh ji,

        Thank you very much for your illustrative response. Now, it’s very clear. I appreciate your kindness to spare your precious time to explain in detail for the benefit of all the readers. Very kind of you.

      Santosh SIngh ji and U N Kedia ji,
      Thanks your kind clarification reg closing price for being considered under retail category.

    Hello Paliwal sir,
    If I buy 500 share on 24 August.
    And I sell on 25, or 26 august.
    Am I eligible for buyback. If I buy 30 %share later to apply for buyback.
    I read your another comment. I got this idea.

      First of all if you buy on 24th August, the shares will be credited on 26th August (T+2)….Record date is 26.08.2021, so, you should sell on 27.08.2021…

      Sunil ji,
      Buy tomorrow as many people have the tendency to purchase the shares just before the Record Date (Friday) to participate in the buyback and possibilities of increase in the price are more.

          Sunil ji,
          Record date is changed to 26/8/2021. You can buy on Monday also, if not purchased today.

          Sir, record date is 25th August so how its possible if we buy on monday record date never change

      Umesh ji,
      Kindly enlighten me regarding the Expected AR Please.

      Why isnt Star cement price going up post buyback announcement. while generally share price goes up closer to buyback record date

        Because many people bought just before the record date and sell the specific numbers of shares after record date which they feel will not be accepted in buyback.
