Necessity of NMDC Limited Buyback

The objective is to return surplus cash to the members holding equity shares of the Company. Buyback is a more efficient form of returning surplus cash to the members holding equity shares of the Company, inter-alia, for the following reasons:

  • 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;
  • 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 for small shareholders would benefit a large number of public shareholders, who would get classified as “small shareholder”;
  • The Buyback may help in improving return on equity;
  • Optimizes the capital structure.

Impact of NMDC Limited Buyback on the Company

We believe the Buyback is not likely to cause any material impact on the profitability/ earnings of the Company. 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.
