Necessity of Freshtrop Fruits Limited Buyback

The Board is of the view that having regard to the cash flows that the Company has been able to consistently generate, the future projected cash flows of the Company and the anticipated funds required for capital expenditure and working capital to meet the expected future growth of the Company, the Buyback will help the Company achieve the following objectives:

(a) Optimize returns to shareholders;

(b) Enhance overall shareholders value; and

(c) Optimize the capital structure resulting in reduction in outstanding shares, improvement in earnings per share, enhanced return on invested capital, effective utilization of available cash and improvement in key return ratios like return on net worth, return on assets etc. over a period of time.

Impact of Freshtrop Fruits Limited Buyback on the Company

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

The 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. The Company will also bear the cost of the Buyback transaction.

The Buyback is proposed, considering the accumulated surplus funds available with the Company being in excess of the surplus amount needed to be retained by the Company for future growth of the Company as envisaged by the Board.

The Buyback may lead to reduction in outstanding Equity Shares, improvement in earnings per share and enhanced return on equity, assuming that the Company would earn similar profits as in the past.

Basis of Calculating Freshtrop Fruits Limited Buyback Price

The Maximum Buyback Price of Rs.90 per Equity Share has been arrived at after considering various factors.

The Maximum Buyback Price represents a premium of 16.04% compared to the average of the weekly high and low of the closing prices of the Equity Shares on the BSE, during the two weeks preceding the date of the Board Meeting.

The Buyback is proposed to be completed within a maximum period of 6 months from the date of opening of the Buyback or such other period as may be permitted under the Companies Act and/or Buyback Regulations or as may be directed by the appropriate authorities.

Further, the Company shall utilize at least 50% of the Maximum Buyback Size i.e. Rs.337.50 lakhs towards the Buyback and the Company will accordingly purchase an indicative minimum of 3,75,000 Equity Shares (“Minimum Buyback Shares”) based on the Maximum Buyback Price.

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

The actual reduction in outstanding number of Equity Shares would depend upon the price at which the Equity Shares of the Company are traded at the Stock Exchange as well as the total number of Equity Shares bought back by the Company from the open market through the Stock Exchange during the Buyback period
