Necessity of Quick Heal Technologies Limited Buyback
The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:
- The Buyback will help the Company to distribute surplus cash to its shareholders holding Equity Shares thereby enhancing the overall return for them;
- The Buyback, which is being implemented through the tender offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve a reservation of up to 15% of the equity shares, which the Company proposes to buyback, for small shareholders or the actual number of Equity Shares entitled as per the shareholding of small shareholders on the Record Date.
- The Buyback is generally expected to improve return on equity through distribution of cash and improve earnings per share by reduction in the equity base of the Company, thereby leading to long term increase in shareholders’ value; and
- The Buyback gives an option to the Eligible Shareholders to either participate in the Buyback and receive cash in lieu of their Equity Shares which are accepted under the Buyback, or not to participate in the Buyback and get a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company post the Buyback, without additional investment.
Impact of Quick Heal Technologies Limited Buyback on the Company
We believe that the Buyback is not likely to cause any impact on the profitability or 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 the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders upto their entitlement including the Promoters and Promoter Group, the aggregate shareholding and the voting rights of the Promoters and Promoter Group of the Company, may increase to 72.85% post Buyback from the current pre Buyback shareholding of 72.32%, and the aggregate shareholding of the public shareholders in the Company may decrease to 27.15% post Buyback from the current pre Buyback shareholding of 27.68%.
The debt-equity ratio post Buyback on standalone as well as consolidated basis will be compliant with the permissible limit of 2:1 prescribed under Section 68(2)(d) of Companies Act and Regulation 4(ii) of the Buyback Regulations, even if the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders upto their Buyback Entitlement.
