Review and Recommendation of Suprajit Engineering Buyback 2021 by InvestorZone team is: 3/10 The buyback size of 48 Crores is very small. Out of ~14 Crores of equity shares outstanding, Suprajit is doing buyback of 15 Lakh Shares. On top of that, the promoters will also participate. If we see the Annual report of 2020, the total shareholders which have shares between 1-500 and 501-1000 are 41797 holding ~73 Lakh shares, and shares reserved for retail shareholders in buyback is just 2.25 lakh. So, AR based on that would be 3-5%.

Final Entitlement

Category of Shareholders Ratio of Buyback
Reserved Category 3 Equity Shares out of every 82 fully paid-up Equity Shares held on the Record Date
General Category 4 Equity Shares out of every 441 fully paid-up Equity Shares held on the Record Date.


    Still Suprajit buyback link not a available on internet or suprajit website or integrated website

    I believe 1.07% is too low and therefore doesn’t make sense for buying for selling in buyback…
