Necessity of Greaves Cotton Limited Buyback
The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:
- Buyback will help the Company to distribute surplus cash to its shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding thereby enhancing the overall return for them;
- The Buyback, which is being implemented through the tender offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve a reservation of up to 15% of the equity shares, which the Company proposes to buyback, for small shareholders or the actual number of Equity Shares entitled as per the shareholding of small shareholders on the Record Date. Company believes that this reservation for small shareholders would benefit a significant number of the Company’s public shareholders, who would get classified as “Small Shareholders”;
- The Buyback is generally expected to improve return on equity and improve earnings per share by reduction in the equity base of the Company, thereby leading to long term increase in shareholders’ value;
- Buyback gives an option to the Eligible Shareholders to either (A) participate in the Buyback and
receive cash in lieu of their Equity Shares which are accepted under the Buyback, or (B) not to participate
in the Buyback and get a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company post the
Buyback, without additional investment;
- The Buyback will help in achieving an optimal capital structure.
