Necessity of eClerx Services Limited Buyback

The Buy-Back is being proposed by the Company to return surplus funds to the Eligible Shareholders, which are over and above its ordinary capital requirements and in excess of any current investment plans, in an expedient, efficient, and cost effective manner. The Buy-Back would increase the shareholder’s value and would also help the company in fulfilling the following objectives:

  1. The Buy-Back 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 the shareholders;
  2. The Buy-Back, which is being implemented through the tender offer as prescribed under the SEBI Buy Back Regulations, would involve the allocation of 15% of the number of Equity Shares proposed to be bought back to Small Shareholders. The Company believes that this reservation of 15% for Small Shareholders would benefit a large number of public shareholders, who would get classified as “Small Shareholder”;
  3. The Buy-Back may help in improving return on equity due to reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to a long term increase in shareholder value;
  4. The Buy-Back will help in achieving an optimal capital structure. The Buy-Back gives an option to the shareholders holding Equity Shares of the Company, to either (i) choose to participate and get cash instead of Equity Shares to be accepted under the Buy-Back Offer or (ii) choose to not participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buy-Back Offer, without additional investment
