    *TCS likely buyback schedule*

    Buyback open – 28 Aug

    Buyback close – 10 sept

    Settlement date – 19 sept

    As defined under Regulation 2(1)(la) of the Buyback Regulations, a “Small Shareholder” is a Shareholder who holds Equity Shares having market value, on the basis of closing price on NSE as on Record Date, of not more than Rs. 2,00,000/- (Rupees Two Lakh only). As on the *Record Date*, the closing price on NSE, having the highest trading volume per Equity Share, accordingly all Shareholders holding Rs.200000/- divided by price of 18th Aug 2018 i.e. as on the Record Date are classified as ‘Small Shareholders’ for the purpose of the Buyback Offer.

    For TCS buyback, all shares that are alloted as bonus in June 2018 should not be submitted as that would imply a gain of 2100/- rs and attract a tax of 315/-
    So please be careful.

      agree rs. 315 tax

      but on original shares loss will arise

      suppose rs.2800 buy
      2100 buy back acceptance

      so rs. 700 loss arrived.

        No.
        (i) Suppose you have 40 shares at 2800.
        (ii) After bonus, you got 80 Shares @ 1400.
        (iii) If you participate in the tender process the following scenario would be there.
        a) Tendered Shares=40, then no issue of tax.
        b) Tendered Shares=60, accepted <40, then also no issue of tax.
        c) Tendered Shares=80, accepted 60, then on 20 shares, you will have to pay tax (315*20= 6300).
        d) Tendered Shares=80, accepted 80, then on 40 shares, you will have to pay tax(315*40=12,600).
        Hope it is clear. If any doubt please drop a message here..

    12.16 crores shares hold by TCS retail shareholders as on 30th june 2018
    1.14 Crores shares reserved for TCS retail shareholders
    assuming 50% shares will tender in buy back
    so acceptance ratio 20% around
    Please correct me, if i am wrong. Thanks

    People looking at 120/130 ₹ difference now and buying TCS.but Acceptance Ratio is decreasing daily.

    Regarding *TCS BUY BACK* offer :- 🤔🤔🤔

    Retail share holding 5,46,716 (31/03/2018).
    Current share holding 6,95,410 (30/06/2018).

    *Increase Share Holders 1,48,694 ( @ 27% new retailers).*

    Now I am assuming buy back ratio @ 52% to 55% share.

      15 august market closed and 17 august bank closed and 18 august saturday. one has to buy max on monday 13 august to be eligible for buyback.

    (i) The total number of Retail Shareholders as of March 2018 was 5,46,716. As per current market price at the time of buyback announcement, the investor having shares between 1-100 was classified as Retail Investor(holding value <2 Lacs). The number of such shareholders was around 1.64 Cr.

    (ii) The total number of Retail Shareholders as of June 2018 was 6,95,410. That means 1,48,694 new retailers were added in the last three months who bought shares between 1-100.

    (iii) So we can conclude that the total number of retail investor having shares in the range of 1-100 is around 1.64+1.48=3.12 Cr.

    (iv) The TCS has reserved 1.1428 Cr shares for Retail Investors.

    (v) So assuming 75% of 3.12 Cr shareholders participate in the Tender process, then Acceptance ratio would be 1.1428/2.34=48%.

      12.16 crores shares hold by TCS retail shareholders as on 30th june 2018
      not 3.12 Crores shares

    on 6th august result for ballot paper will be out and with that record date will be given

      4th august was last date to participate in postal ballot and it was Saturday so obviously it was expected that the result will be announced on Monday but TCS did something more than ordinary by announcing result same day and also a record date.

      It is not yet announced. It is likely to announce in the first week of August.

    It looks a good buyback from TCS. Every retail investor should apply in this. The strategy should be to accumulate TCS on every fall and do averaging of shares since it will take 2 months time for buyback to happen. So don’t be in hurry to buy TCS let it cool down a little bit and then jump.

    dinesh bhai thanks for such a great information, now as the buyback amount is again same as last year 16000cr, what are your views and from where do you have collected such a superb information

    TCS buyback loss for bonus shares :-

    Investor holding only 100 bonus shares submitt shares for buyback

    As bonus shares alloted are just 3 months old and had zero value in terms of inccome tax and on receiving buyback amount at Rs.2100 investor has to pay Rs.315 as short term capital gain tax which is expected to be more then profit realised on diffetence of stock price of record date and buyback price.

      agree rs. 315 tax

      but on original shares loss will arise

      suppose rs.2800 buy
      2100 buy back acceptance

      so rs. 700 loss arrived.
