Details of Public Announcement
In accordance with the provisions of the Regulation 7(i) of the SEBI Buyback Regulations, the Company has made a Public Announcement for the Buyback of Equity Shares which was published on May 27, 2019 in all editions of Business Standard (English national daily, Hindi national daily) and Loksatta (Aurangabad Marathi language daily) with wide circulation within two working days from the date of passing of the resolution by the Board, i.e. May 24, 2019, approving the Buyback.
Necessity of FDC Limited Buyback
The Company’s management strives to increase Shareholder’s value and the Buyback would result in, amongst other things:
- A reduction in the overall capital employed in the business, which will, in turn lead to higher earnings per share and enhanced return on equity and return on capital employed, return on net worth, return on assets, etc and long term increase in shareholders’ value;
- The Buyback will help the Company to distribute surplus cash to its Members holding equity shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to Members;
- The Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the SEBI Buyback Regulations, would involve allocation of 15% of the outlay 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”; and
- The Buyback gives an option to the Members 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 to not participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buyback Offer, without additional investment.
Impact of FDC Limited Buyback on the Company
The Buyback is not likely to cause any material impact on the earnings of the Company except a reduction in the amount available for investment, which the Company could have otherwise deployed towards generating investment income.
Assuming response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full acceptance) from all the Shareholders up to their Buyback Entitlement, the aggregate shareholding of the Promoter Group, post the Buyback may increase to [●]% from 69.07% prior to the Buyback, and the aggregate shareholding of the public in the Company post Buyback may decrease to [●]% from 30.93% prior to the Buyback.
The post Buyback, both on standalone and consolidated basis, debt-equity ratio of the Company will be below the maximum allowable limit of 2:1 specified under the Act.
