Necessity of KIOCL Limited Buyback

Buyback is the acquisition by a company of its own shares. Buyback is an efficient form of returning surplus cash to the members holding equity shares of the Company, inter-alia, for the following reasons:

i. 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;

ii. The Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve allocation of higher of number of shares as per their entitlement or 15% of the number of shares to be bought back, reserved for the 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”;

iii. The Buyback would help in improving return on equity, by reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to long term increase in shareholders‟ value; and

iv. 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 Buyback offer or they may choose to not participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buyback offer, without additional investment.

Impact of KIOCL Limited Buyback on the Company

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

We believe the Buyback will not in any manner impair the ability of the Company to pursue growth opportunities or meet its cash requirements for business operations. The 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.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the latest audited financial statement of the Company for the half year ended March 31, 2020 are as under:

Basis of Calculating KIOCL Buyback Price

The Buyback Offer Price of Rs 110 (Rupees One Hundred Ten Only) per Equity Share has been arrived at after considering various factors such as the average closing prices of the Equity Shares on the Stock Exchanges where the Equity Shares of the Company are listed, the net-worth of the Company and the impact of the Buyback on the key financial ratios of the Company.

The Buyback Offer Price of Rs 110 (Rupees One Hundred Ten only) per Equity Share represents a premium of 5.69% on BSE and 6.53% on NSE over the average closing price in the last six calendar month preceding the month in which Buyback Offer is approved by the Board.

Source of Funds for the Buyback

Assuming full acceptance, the funds that would be employed by the Company for the purpose of the Buyback of 1,41,74,469 Equity Shares at a price of Rs 110 per Equity Share would be Rs 155.92 Crores excluding the transaction costs viz. brokerage, advisor‟s fees, intermediaries fees, public announcement publication fees, filing fees, turnover charges, applicable taxes inter alia buyback taxes, securities transaction tax, goods and services tax, stamp duty and other incidental and related expense.

The Buyback shall be made out of the free reserves of the Company as at March 31, 2020 (i.e. the last audited standalone financial statements available as on the date of Board Meeting recommending the proposal of the Buyback).

This Company shall transfer from its free reserves a sum equal to the nominal value of the Equity Shares bought back through the Buyback to the Capital Redemption Reserve Account and the details of such transfer shall be disclosed in its subsequent audited balance sheet.

The funds for the Buyback will be met out of internally generated cash resources of the Company. The Company does not intend to raise additional debt for the explicit purposes of the Buyback. Accordingly, borrowed funds will not be used for the Buyback. However, if required, the Company may borrow funds in the ordinary course of its business.
