Necessity of Coal India Limited Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken by the Company to return surplus funds to its Shareholders. Additionally, the Company’s management strives to increase Shareholders’ value and the Buyback would result inter alia in the following:

  • The Buyback involves allocation of higher number of equity shares as per their entitlement or 15% of the number of equity shares which the Company proposes to Buyback reserved for 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 Shareholders;
  • The Buyback may help in improving return on equity, by reduction in the equity base, and other financial ratios, thereby leading to long term increase in Shareholders’ value; and
  • The Buyback gives an option to the Eligible Shareholders to either participate in the Buyback and receive cash in lieu of equity shares accepted under the Buyback or not participate in the Buyback and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company post the Buyback without any additional investment.

Impact of Coal India Limited Buyback on the Company

We believe that the Buyback is not likely to cause any 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.

Assuming the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders upto their entitlement and to the extent the Promoter has agreed to tender, the aggregate shareholding and the voting rights of the Promoter of the Company, may [increase/decrease] to [●]% post Buyback from the current pre Buyback shareholding of 72.91%, and the aggregate shareholding of the public shareholders in the Company may [increase/decrease] to [●]% post Buyback from the current pre Buyback shareholding of 27.09%.

The debt-equity ratio post Buyback on a standalone as well as consolidated basis will be compliant with the permissible limit of 2:1 prescribed under Section 68(2)(d) of Companies Act and Regulation 4(ii) of the Buyback Regulations, even if the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders upto their Buyback Entitlement.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the last audited standalone and consolidated financial statements of the Company for the financial year ended March 31, 2018 are as under:

Net worth (Rs. in Crore)12,694.7111,644.7119,827.3618,777.36

Basis of Calculating Coal India Buyback Price

The Buyback Price has been arrived at after considering many factors, including, but not limited to, the trends in the volume weighted average market prices of the Equity Shares of the Company on the Stock Exchanges where the Equity Shares of the Company are listed, the net worth of the Company, price earnings ratio, impact on other financial parameters and the possible impact of Buyback on the earnings per Equity Share.
