As part of further consolidation, pursuant to Scheme of Arrangement and Amalgamation made effective from May 11, 2015, the erstwhile Welspun Enterprises Limited, Welspun Infratech Limited, Welspun Plastics Private Limited and Welspun Infra Projects Private Limited were merged into the Company. This consolidation will enable the Company to better leverage the combined strengths of the entities, synergies arising out of consolidation of business such as, enhancement of net worth of the combined business to capitalise on future growth potential, optimal utilisation of resources, reducing operating and compliance cost and achieving operational and management efficiency. It will aid the Company to target opportunities which need large free cash and strong balance sheet. The merger has helped to consolidate and simplify corporate structure of WEL and its subsidiaries

    Considering 7.8% of the buyback size . 29% AR for general category is extremely high and suggest that large share holders like promoters have probably not participated in the buyback. I think it shows there confidence in the value of the share and would lead to the appreciation of cost.
    I personally liked the technical of this company and have added around 2000 more just after the fall in buyback. Lets see how it play today.
    Experts kindly suggest their views.

    Got 47.50 % ER … earned nothing cause I panic when this share is on 119.00 …. but learned many things…. thanks to the developer of this site… if any one have WhatsApp group to discuss buyback… plz let me know

    618/1300 It’s totally Shocked me. It’s better for General Category which AR 29%.

    Very Surprising to see 48% AR while the subscription is only 3.2 times. It appears that promoters have probably not applied in large. Any way Ok AR.

      Where are you checking it? Did they send you email or you got your rejected stocks credited in your demat account? please let us know.

    586/1233 is the AR in my case. I have expected around 60%. A little bit disappointed.

    Settlement date revised.

    Today evening we will get contract note from brokers.

    Subscription of Tender offer for Welspun is only 3.17 times. It implies very high ratio of acceptance for small Category. may be of the tune of 70- 100%., based on my earlier experience.
    Lets see, but it should be definitely >60%

    Acceptance Ratio Retali will be above 60% and General Category will 20 % to 30%.

      Hello sir I sold this share earlier and I’m eligible for buy back… I have one question…
      I have 208 shares earlier… and sold all and now I’m eligible for 39 shares…
      So should I purchase 39 shares only … or should I purchase 208 shares back… or like everyone saying AR should be 45% then I purchase 100 shares only for just buyback so they all accepted… kindly guide…

      Buy 208 and submit 208 .keep it simple till you get expertise in it .

      AR counts on Applied Shares.
      So better purchase all and apply all.
      I tried same as u said half qty applying but AR comes half thn others.


    ✓CMP – *Rs. 128/-*
    ✓BB PRICE – *Rs.200/-* per share
    ✓BB RECORD DT – *13/02/2023*

    ✓ *Expected Retail Entitlement Around *18%*
    ✓ *Expected Retail Acceptance Around 40%*

      hello i have a question…. plz tell me i bought 200 shares till record date the i sold all 200 after record date then i purchase 300 shares back when buyback date announced … so am i eligible to tender only 200 shares or 300 shares

      As per my best knowledge till buyback process is not started.
      You are eligible for the shares which are in your demat on record date means 200

    Hello… why this stock going down today…. I’m participating first time… if i sell this share and buy again in that condition am I eligible to participate in tender

      As 13 – 2 – 23 ex date for buyback eligibility.
      Some investors sell on this day. So we see fall like this. 5-7% down normal but this one 10%-11% down.
      Yes you can sell and buy again. You eligible for buyback.

        Better to hold as too much down from 151 price.
        145 buying price good.
        Mine 149 avg price.
        I m holding it. No plan to sell now.

    Looks a good bet in Welspun Enterprises at current market price to play for buyback.

    Hello .. I’m investing first time in buyback amount 50000 .. can anyone tell me acceptance ratio

      Acceptance ratio cant tell now
      It decided after total bids in buyback. Which takes more time from Record Date. Like 45-55 days.

      But as per December share holding pattern we can expect 12-14% Entitlement ratio
      25% acceptance ratio.

        25% is less… can I expect 50- 60% AR ….
        Or should I hold money for better buyback… like Hinduja and sportking …
        But I think welspun is better then these. …can you guide

        Sportking looks small size buyback compare to welspun.
        Hgs big size buyback ER around 18% as par December share holding pattern.

    Today appears to be a chance day for accumulating this share for buyback.. Still high risk, seeing market free fall

        Welspun had run well and make sense to buy at 135-140, specifically after release of dividend. Expecting a further fall…

    Total Shares = 14,97,55,073
    Shares to be Bought in buyback = 1,17,50,000
    The offer size appears to be 7.8% and not 14.22%,
    Please check and correct, if not?

    82,57,561 shares held by Investors holding upto 1000 shares (as of Shareholding Pattern as on March 31, 2022).
    15% of total buyback shares = 17,62,500.
    With this, the entitle ratio could be around 20%.
    Please note there is also dividend of Rs7.50 on record date of 11/01/2023.

    This may open gap up on Monday 02/01. We have time until the second Monday 09/01 to buy with the special dividend.
