Necessity of JB Chemicals Buyback

The Buy-back is being undertaken by the Company to enhance shareholders’ value and improve financial ratios. Additionally, the Buy-back is being undertaken for the following reasons:

  • The Buy-back will help the Company to distribute surplus funds to its shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to the shareholders;
  • Buy-back, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer as prescribed under the Buy-back Regulations, would involve a reservation of 15% of the Buy-back Size for small shareholders. The Company believes that this reservation for small shareholders would benefit a large number of public shareholders, who would get classified as “Small Shareholders” as defined under Regulation 2(i)(n) of the Buy-back Regulations;
  • Buyback may help in improving financial ratios like earnings per share, return on assets and return on equity calculated on the basis of financial statements, by reducing the equity base of the Company; and
  • The Buy-back gives an option to the Eligible Shareholders to either choose to participate in the Buy-back and receive cash in lieu of their Equity Shares which are accepted under the Buy-back or choose not to participate in the Buy-back and get a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company post the Buy-back, without additional investment.

Impact of JB Chemicals Buyback on the Company

The Company believes that the Buy-back 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.

Assuming that the response to the Buy-back is 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders in proportion of their respective Buy-back Entitlement, the funds deployed by the Company towards the Buy-back would be Rs.130 Crores excluding Transaction Costs.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the latest audited standalone financial statements for the period ended on March 31, 2019 are as under:
