Necessity of Archidply Industries Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken by the Company to return surplus funds to its equity shareholders, which are over and above its ordinary capital requirements and in excess of any current investment plans, in an expedient, effective and cost-efficient manner. The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:

a) The Buyback will help the Company to distribute surplus cash to its shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby enhancing the overall returns to shareholders;

b) The Buyback, which is being implemented through the tender offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve a reservation of up to 15% of the Buyback Size for “small shareholders” (as defined below). The Company believes that this reservation of up to 15% for small shareholders would benefit a large number of the Company’s public shareholders, who would be classified as “small shareholders”;

c) The Buy-back will help in achieving optimal capital structure.

d) The Buyback would help in improving financial ratios like earnings per share and return on equity, by reducing the equity base of the Company; and

e) The Buyback gives the Eligible Shareholders the choice to either (A) participate in the Buyback and receive cash in lieu of their Equity Shares which are accepted under the Buyback, or (B) not to participate in the Buyback and get a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company post the Buyback, without additional investment.

Impact of Archidply Industries Buyback on the Company

The Company believes that the Buyback is not likely to cause any material impact on the profitability or 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.

The Buyback shall not result in a change in control or otherwise affect the existing management structure of the Company.

The debt-equity ratio after the completion of the Buyback will be within the permissible limit of 2:1 prescribed by the Act and the Buyback Regulations, based on unaudited financial statements of the Company, even if the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full acceptance).

The Company believes that the Buyback will not impact the growth opportunities of the Company.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the latest audited financial statement of the Company for September 30, 2020 are as under:

Basis of Calculating Archidply Industries Buyback Price

The Equity Shares of the Company are proposed to be bought back at the Offer Price, i.e. a price of Rs. 37 per share. The Offer Price has been arrived at after considering various factors such as the average closing prices of the equity shares on the Stock Exchanges where the Equity Shares of the Company are listed and the impact of the Buyback on the key financial ratios of the Company.

The Buyback Offer Price of Rs.37/- per Equity Share represents:

(i) premium of 33.74% on BSE and 31.65% on NSE over the volume weighted average price of the Equity Shares on BSE and NSE respectively for 3 months preceding the date of intimation to the BSE and NSE for the Board Meeting to consider the proposal of the Buyback;

(ii) premium of 27.51% on BSE and 26.80% on NSE over the volume weighted average price of the Equity Shares on BSE and NSE respectively for 2 weeks preceding the date of intimation to the BSE and NSE for the Board Meeting to consider the proposal of the Buyback;

(iii) premium of 21.71% on BSE and 20.92% on NSE over the closing market price of the Equity Shares on BSE and NSE as on the date of the intimation to BSE and NSE for the Board Meeting to consider the proposal of the Buyback.

Source of Funds for the Buyback

Assuming full acceptance, the funds that would be employed by the Company for the purpose of the Buyback of upto 22,00,000 Equity Shares at a price of Rs 37 per Equity Share would not exceed Rs.8,14,00,000 excluding transaction costs, applicable taxes, other incidental and related expense.

The funds for the implementation of the proposed Buyback will be sourced out of the free reserves (retained earnings) and/ or such other source as may be permitted by the Buyback Regulations or the Act.

The Company shall transfer from its free reserves, a sum equal to the nominal value of the Equity Shares so bought back to the capital redemption reserve account, and details of such transfer shall be disclosed in its subsequent audited financial statements. The funds borrowed, if any, from banks and financial institutions will not be used for the Buyback.
