Necessity of Aarti Drugs Limited Buyback

This Buyback is being undertaken to return to the equity shareholders, in an expedient, effective and cost-efficient manner, surplus cash which is in excess of the Company’s ordinary capital requirements and current investment plans. The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:

  • Aarti Buyback will help the Company to return surplus cash to its Shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to Shareholders;
  • The Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve allocating to the Small Shareholders the higher of number of shares entitled as per their holdings, or 15% of the number of shares to be bought back, reserved for the Small Shareholders. The Company believes that this reservation for Small Shareholders would benefit a large number of public shareholders, who would get classified as “Small Shareholder” as per Regulation 2(i)(n) of the Buyback Regulations;
  • This Buyback is expected to improve return on equity and earnings per share by reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to long term increase in Shareholders’ value; and
  • It gives an option to Shareholders holding equity shares of the Company, who can choose to participate and get cash in lieu of Equity Shares to be accepted under the Buyback offer or they may choose not to participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company, post the Buyback offer, without additional investment.

Impact of Aarti Drugs Limited Buyback on the Company

We believe that the Buyback is not likely to cause any material impact on the profitability / earnings of the Company except to the extent of reduction in the amount available for investment, which the Company could have otherwise deployed towards generating investment income.

Assuming the response to the Buyback is 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Sellers in proportion to their respective Buyback Entitlement, the aggregate shareholding of the Promoter and Persons in Control post the Buyback may increase to 62.33% from 62.26% or may decrease to 37.67% from 37.74% prior to Buyback i.e. as on Record Date March 29, 2019.

The debt-equity ratio immediately on completion of Buyback shall be in compliant with the permissible limit of 2:1 prescribed under the Act even if the response to the Buyback is 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Sellers in proportion to their respective Buyback Entitlement.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the audited standalone and consolidated financial

Basis of Calculating Aarti Drugs Buyback Price

  • The closing market price on the date of the intimation of the Board Meeting i.e. March 11, 2019 and
  • The impact on the net worth of the Company and possible impact of Buyback on earnings and return on net worth per Equity Share.

The Buyback Price represents a premium of 50.17% over the volume weighted average market price of the Equity Shares on the NSE (the Stock Exchange where the maximum volume of trading in the Equity Shares is recorded) for 3 (three) months preceding the date of the intimation of the Board Meeting i.e. March 11, 2019 which was Rs 599.32 and 41.98% over the volume weighted average market price of the Equity Shares on the NSE for 2 (two) weeks preceding the date of the intimation of the Board Meeting i.e. March 11, 2019 which was Rs 633.87.
