Review and Recommendation of Tech Mahindra Limited Buyback Offer 2019  by IZ team is: 4/10 Fair: 1-5 Good: 5-7 Excellent: 7-10 [ Good arbitrage of 15% from CMP. However, the size of the buyback is small. The buyback Entitlement based on Annual Report (2-17-18) data would be close to 10-15%. However, this will vary as per price movement. The company this quarter has given excellent results. So fundamentally there is no risk in the company at present. ]

    Hi, I have submitted application for buy back and the shares are also deducted from my demat account but I am yet to receive the amount. May I know if someone has also still waiting to get the amount credited? I have posted the form through registered post to the registrar. Who should I contact for inquiries?


    I applied for Buyback. I got a message yesterday that my Tech Mahindra shares are deducted from DP. but the money is not credited till now on my Bank account. What would I do? is it a general scenario. when can I expect the money is going to credit on my bank account. 🙂

      Shares deducted will be tendered for buyback. You will receive the amount for the accepted shares in your bank account. Unaccepted shares will be credited back to your demat account. The process may take a week to complete. Exact date of settlement could be found in the offer letter.

    I have 300 shares of tech Mahindra and I have not received any mail from tech Mahindra as of how much I have been allotted

    I have 100 shares tech mahindra.. So how many shares will the company take in the buyback.

    If i purchase share after today, whether i can participate in buyback???

    If i purchase share after today, whether i can participate in buyback?

    When is final acceptance or rejection will be finally announced ?
    What date they will deposit money in account ?
    Will it be 2% or more buyback

      It will be announced on 12.04.2019. The AR would be 20%.

      Acceptance ration is what are the chances of acceptance of your share.
      Example. if you have 100 number of Tech Mahindra share. on Buyback company, it may or may not accept your share as the buyback. How many accept if it expects 10 number of share it 10%. as you have 100 shares.

    i have 123 shares of tech mahindra on record date and entitled for 123 shares . After record date i have purchased 10 more shares of tech mahindra so it reflect in my demate account 133 shares. By mistake I have tendered 133 shares as per my demate account instead of 123 shares for which I entitled . my question is that can company reject my bid on the base of share quantity which i tendered is not as per record date . please reply and guide me.

    Hi All,

    I have shares in demat form in a holding account – Oriental Bank Of Commerce. How do I apply for the buyback through this?

    If it keeps on falling like this – it will be a proposition of loss. I bought it just for buyback gains.

    Hi All,
    I am new to buy back and sharemarket ;
    I only have 2 shares of techM; and i received buyback mail with 0 entitlement for Buyback.
    Does that mean i cannot apply for Buyback?

      You can tender 2 shares.
      Entitled shares means no. of shares confirmly accepted from you.
      0 entitlement means no assurance that your shares will be always accepted, acceptance will depend on total entitled shares tendered by retailers.

    Can I know how much shares have been allotted for buy back of tech Mahindra Ltd pls email me

    Since IT sector will be weak for sometime, retail investors are advised to sell your shares as the buyback date is now over. You may keep 20% in your demat which will be likely maximum acceptance ratio, or that also you can buy before actual buyback process starts.

      Acceptance ratio you mentioned is calculated based on the shares as on record date or 20% of shares what you tendered which sometimes less than the numbers on record date.

    Today is Record Date for Buyback. Please ensure today’s valuation EOD below 2 lakhs to participate in reserved category (small shareholder) @ NSE closing price (assuming highest volume in NSE)
    Make sure shares lying in your DeMat Account and not in Brokers Pool/Margin Account

    I bought 60 shares of Tec Mahindra on 1 March. Record date is 6 March. 2 to 5 March were holidays. Will these shares be eligible for buyback? The shares come to my account by 8.30 pm on 6 March as per

    Dear MW,
    we all appreciate your efforts to provide excellent info. on buyback issue…but you have missed some co. even if it is small in size to enclose in your list eg P MB Polytex who declared BB on 21.2.19. RD on 8 .03.19. @80 per share. Pls. Include each and every co. In your list…still handoff to you.

      Hello Pankaj Jii,

      Thanks for your appreciation!!

      I would like to clarify that I tend to cover only the big size issue as they have more chances of making money. The big companies use a method of buyback to Reward the Investors which is not in case of small issues. Small Issue mostly has different motives i.e. to delist the company, the promoters often siphon off the reserve by way of Buyback etc.

      There is no harm in avoiding such companies. I always prefer to play safely in the market. If everybody must satisfy for a 10-15% return in the market then nobody will lose money. However, it is the only greed which makes loose money in the market.

    I had tendered shares…
    But it is not on demat at record date.. So it was debited but not yet credited back..what to do?

      To whom you have tendered Shares? The Buyback is yet to open.

        Strategy is good but is requires capital over 11 lacs to execute. Returns not that attractive on the capital deployed.

      Yes sir..talking abt any company..if aisa ho to?..

      I had problem in bosch..but now i got confirmation by my broker that till today evening i will get my tendered shares back.

      Very Good Strategy please go through it. If any doubt they can ping up here.

      Future position will have to be squared off in March
      While tendering process is normally at least after 1 month from record date


      What do you suggest for Quick heal Buyback? Should we buy it before BM or after BM?

      Very bad strategy by Anand Rathi. You block around 10 lac rupees for one month.

    Kindly inform what are the charges if we tender shares online? Or from tender forms?

    Is there any difference?

      It depends on your broker

      Zerodha takes charges for placing buyback order, Rs. 20 + GST if order placed online & Rs. 100 + GST if order placed manually (by ticket)

      ICICIDirect dont take any charge for placing buyback order

      Brokerages (including duties & taxes) will be charged on accepted shares by every broker.

    The Board of Directors of Tulive Developers at its meeting held on 22 February 2019 approved the buyback of upto 4,80,000 Equity Shares of the Company of the face value of Rs. 10 each at a price of Rs. 350 per Equity Share aggregating up to Rs 16.80 crore .

    The Board has interalia approved the buyback of upto 1530000 (Fifteen Lacs Thirty Thousand Only) Equity Shares of the Company (the Equity Shares) of the face value of Rs. 10 each at a price of Rs. 29/- per Equity Share aggregating to Rs. 44370000/- (Rupees Four crore forty three lacs seventy thousand only) through the Tender Offer route

    If it stays steady 1-2% profit
    If it slips 10% almost 10% loss
    Already at 52 week high so less chnces of further upside in short term

    Tech Mahindra Buyback offer details:
    • Size: INR 1,956 crore
    • Price: INR 950/share
    • Record Date: 6th March 2019
    • Ex-date : 5th March 2019
    • CMP (based on price of 21st February 2019): INR 826/share
    • Premium: INR 124/share (15%)
    • Total number of shares to be bought back: 2.06 crore shares (2.1% of paid-up equity)
    • Shares reserved for small shareholders: ~ 0.3 crore shares (15% of buyback offer)
    • Based on Buy Back price of INR950, one can buy upto 211 shares (2,00,000/950) to be eligible for Retail category

    Shareholding distribution as per FY2018 annual report (as on March 31, 2018)
    No. of shares % of shareholding
    Upto 500 3.32%
    501-2,000 2.04%
    2001-10,000 1.85%
    10,000 and above 92.79%
    Total 100.00%
    Source: Company FY18 Annual Report

    • The retail holding (upto 500 shares) in TechM was 3.32% (as on March 31, 2018)
    • 15% reservation for the buyback of 2.1% of paid-up equity implies at least 0.31% of paid up equity will be bought from retail investors
    • Acceptance ratio =0.31/3.32 = 9.5% (as on March 31, 2018)

    Given the high retail shareholding, we expect acceptance ratio to be within 15-20% range, which should yield 2.3%-3.0%. This can change based on the shareholding as on the record date.

    Scenario Analysis: If one assumes that we are able to exit the un-tendered shares at CMP of INR826, ex-buyback:
    Amount invested (Rs.) Acceptance ratio Profit (Rs.) Profit (%)
    1,73,859 10% 2,611 1.5%
    1,73,859 15% 3,916 2.3%
    1,73,859 20% 5,221 3.0%
    1,73,859 25% 6,526 3.8%

    Key risks to the opportunity:
    • Additional retail shareholders buy the stock before the record date leading to lower acceptance ratio
    • The current market price (assumed for calculation of profits) drops before one is able to exit post buy back

    As per Dec 2018 shareholding data

    the minimum entitlement ratio would be 4.45%.

      At present 10%. However, it will vary depending upon the price movement.

    Tech_mahindra approved the proposal for buyback by the Company of its own fully paid equity shares of Rs. 5/- each (“Equity Shares”) not exceeding 20,585,000 Equity Shares at a price of Rs 950/Sh

      If there is Open market buyback, Mahindra promoters wouldn’t get any share. I guess it will not be situation. They hold > 35% stake in Tech M.

      Infosys had only 12-13% promoter holdings .. 🙂

    After Very good Quarterly results, expect a 20% upside from here on. The buyback will boost the share price. Risk savvy investors can look to buy at current level.

    You are right MW. The big question is whether company will go for open route or else tender offer. Because open market method will not favor retail investors.

    Big Question is whether it would be Open Market similar to Persistent, Cyient, and Infosys or Tender Offer.
