Details of Public Announcement

This public announcement (the “Public Announcement”) is made in relation to the Buyback of Equity Shares (as defined below) of Dalmia Bharat Limited (the “Company”) from the open market through stock exchange mechanism, in accordance with Regulation 16(iv)(b) and other applicable provisions of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Buy-Back of Securities) Regulations, 2018, as amended (including any statutory modification(s), amendment(s) or re-enactments from time to time) (the “Buyback Regulations”) along with the requisite disclosures as specified in Schedule IV to the Buyback Regulations.

Necessity of Dalmia Bharat Limited Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken by the Company after taking into account the strategic and operational cash requirements of the Company in the medium term and for returning surplus funds to the shareholders in an effective and efficient manner. The Buyback is being undertaken, inter-alia, for the following reasons:

  1. This Buyback will help the Company to return surplus cash to its shareholders holding Equity Shares;
  2. This Buyback may help in improving return on equity, by reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to long term increase in shareholders’ value; and
  3. The Buyback gives an option to the 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 or they may choose not to participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buyback, without additional investment.

Impact of Dalmia Bharat Limited Buyback on the Company

The Buyback is expected to enhance overall long-term shareholders’ value for continuing shareholders, without compromising on the future growth opportunities of the Company, as well as provide an exit opportunity to the public shareholders.

This Buyback is not likely to cause any material adverse impact on the earnings of the Company, except a reduction in the treasury income which the Company could have otherwise earned from investments in fixed deposits and mutual funds.

The Buyback will lead to reduction in existing Equity Shares and consequently, is expected to improve the ‘earnings per share’ and enhance return on equity, assuming that the Company would earn similar profits as in the past.

Consequent to the Buyback (which excludes participation by the promoters, members of the promoter group and persons in control of the Company) and based on the number of Equity Shares bought back by the Company from the shareholders including resident outside India, erstwhile overseas corporate bodies, foreign portfolio investors and non-resident Indian shareholders, the shareholding pattern of the Company would undergo a change;

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the latest audited financial statement of the Company for the half year ended March 31, 2019 are as under:

Basis of Calculating Dalmia Bharat Buyback Price

The Equity Shares of the Company are proposed to be bought back at the Buyback Price, i.e., Rs.700/- (Indian Rupees Seven Hundred Only) per Equity Share.

Maximum Buyback Price of Rs.700/- per Equity Share has been arrived at after considering various factors, including average of the weekly high and low of the closing price of the Equity Shares of the Company on the Stock Exchanges during the 2 weeks preceding the date of the Board Meeting, the net worth of the Company and the potential impact of the Buyback on the earnings per Equity Share and other similar ratios of the Company. The Maximum Buyback Price excludes the Transaction Costs.

The Buyback Price represents

  • Premium of 27.8% and 28.9% over the closing prices on both NSE (i.e., INR 547.6) and BSE (i.e., INR 543.2), on March 17, 2020 i.e., one trading day prior to the date on which the notice of the Board Meeting to consider the Buyback proposal was intimated to NSE and BSE
  • A premium of 33.1% and 33.8% over the closing prices on both NSE (i.e., INR 525.9) and BSE (i.e., INR 523.2), on March 18, 2020, i.e., the date on which the notice of the Board Meeting to consider the Buyback proposal was intimated to NSE and BSE.
  • The Maximum Buyback Price represents a premium of 14.7% and 14.9% compared to the average of the weekly high and low of the closing prices of the Equity Shares on NSE and BSE, respectively, during the 2 (two) weeks preceding the date of the Board Meeting.

The ratio of the aggregate of secured and unsecured debts owed by the Company after the Buyback shall not be more than twice the paid-up capital and free reserves based on both audited standalone and consolidated financial statements

Source of Funds for the Buyback

At the Maximum Buyback Price and for the Maximum Buyback Size, the indicative maximum number of Equity Shares bought back would be 71,42,857 Equity Shares. If the Equity Shares are bought back at a price below the Maximum Buyback Price, the actual number of Equity Shares bought back could exceed the Indicative Maximum Buyback Shares (assuming the Maximum Buyback Size is fully utilised by the Company) but will not exceed 25% of the total number of Equity Shares in the total paid-up equity capital of the Company.

The actual number of Equity Shares bought back will depend upon the actual price, excluding the Transaction Costs, paid for the Equity Shares bought back, and the aggregate consideration paid in the Buyback, subject to the Maximum Buyback Size.

Further, the Company shall utilize at least 50% of the Maximum Buyback Size i.e., INR 250,00,00,000/- towards the Buyback and the Company will accordingly purchase an indicative minimum of 35,71,429 Equity Shares, based on the Maximum Buyback Price.

If the Equity Shares are bought back at a price below the Maximum Buyback Price, the actual number of Equity Shares bought back could exceed the Indicative Maximum Buyback Shares (assuming the Maximum Buyback Size is fully utilised by the Company). However, the total number of Equity Shares to be bought back will not exceed 25% of the total number of Equity Shares in the total paid-up equity capital of the Company.

The amount required by the Company for the Buyback (including the cost of financing the Buyback and the Transaction Costs) will be funded out of the internal accruals of the Company including but not limited to free reserves of the Company, current balances of cash and cash equivalents and fund inflow through sale of current investments of the Company.
