The necessity of Jagran Prakashan Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken, inter-alia, for the following reasons:

(a) The Buyback will help the Company to return surplus cash to its members holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to members.

(b) Since the Buyback is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as per the Buyback Regulations, 15% of the number of shares to be bought back by the Company would have to be reserved for the Small Shareholders. The Company believes that this reservation for Small Shareholders would benefit the public shareholders since a large number of public shareholders would get classified as a “Small Shareholder”.

(c) The Buyback may help in improving return on equity, by reducing the equity base, thereby leading to a long-term increase in Shareholders’ value.

(d) The Buyback gives an option to the members holding Equity Shares of the Company, who can either (i) choose to participate and get cash in lieu of Equity Shares to be accepted under the Buyback Offer; or (ii) choose to not participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buyback Offer, without any additional investment.

(e) The Buyback will help to optimize the capital structure.

Impact of Jagran Prakashan Buyback on the Company

The Buyback is not likely to cause any material impact on the profitability/ earnings of the Company, except to the extent of reduction in the amount available for investment, which the Company could have otherwise deployed towards generating investment income.

The Buyback is not expected to impact growth opportunities for the Company. Buyback is expected to contribute to the overall enhancement of shareholder value and result in an increase in the return on equity of the Company.

The Buyback will not result in a change in control or otherwise affect the existing management structure of the Company.
