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 10, 2019 in all editions of :

  • Business Standard, an English national daily newspaper; and
  • Business Standard, a Hindi national daily newspaper, both with wide circulation within two working days from the date of declaration of results of resolution by the shareholders through postal ballot i.e. May 09, 2019 for the Buyback.

Necessity of Buyback

The Company’s management strives to increase Shareholder’s value and the Buyback would result in, amongst other things:

  • The Buyback will result in 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 Offer or they may choose to not participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Offer, without additional investment.

Impact of 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. The Buyback will optimize returns to the shareholders and enhance overall shareholders value. The Buyback is not expected to impact growth opportunities for the Company.

The debt-equity ratio post the Buyback will be below the maximum allowable limit of 2:1 specified under the Act.
