Necessity of Majesco Limited Buyback

The Board at its meeting held on October 08, 2020, considered all relevant factors, including the strategic and operational cash requirements in the medium term, present debt to equity ratio of the Company, the increase in accumulated free reserves and considered it appropriate to allocate a sum not exceeding Rs. 631,26,06,300/- (excluding Transaction Costs) for distributing to the Eligible Shareholders, through the Buyback.

The Buyback is being undertaken to return a part of surplus cash received by the Company, upon the sale of its shareholding in Majesco, USA to the Shareholders, in an expedient, effective and cost-efficient manner.

The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:

This Buyback will help the Company to return surplus cash to its Shareholders holding equity shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to Shareholders;

The Buyback, which is being implemented through the tender offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve allocating to the small shareholders the higher of a) number of shares entitled as per their holdings, or b) 15% of the number of shares to be bought back, reserved for the 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 shareholder” in terms of the Regulation 2(i)(n) of the Buyback Regulations and;

The Buyback gives an option to the Shareholders holding equity shares of the Company to either choose to participate and get cash in lieu of equity shares to be accepted under the Buyback or to choose not to participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company and their share in any dividend which may be announced by the Company, post the Buyback, without additional investment.

Pursuant to completion of the Buyback, the Board may consider distributing the remainder of the surplus cash received from the sale of its shareholding in Majesco, USA (net of expenses, costs and monies required by the Company for its operations) through a dividend.

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