Details of Public Announcement

This Public Announcement (“Public Announcement”/ “PA”) is being made in relation to the Buyback of Equity Shares of M/s. Ramkrishna Forgings Limited (“Company” or “RKFL”) from the open market through stock exchange mechanism, pursuant to the provisions of Regulation 16(iv)(b) and other applicable provisions of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Buyback of Securities) Regulations, 2018 (“Buyback Regulations”) and, inter-alia, contains the disclosures as specified in Schedule IV to the Buyback Regulations.

Necessity of Ramkrishna Forgings Limited Buyback

The Company’s management strives to increase the Equity Shareholders’ value and the Buyback would result in the following benefits, amongst other things:

(a) optimize returns to shareholders;

(b) enhance overall shareholders’ value and

(c) optimize the capital structure.

The above objectives will be achieved by returning part of surplus cash back to members through the Buyback process. This will lead to reduction in outstanding Equity Shares, improvement in earnings per share, based on the assumption that the Company would earn similar profits as in the past, and enhanced return on equity capital.

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.

Impact of Ramkrishna Forgings Limited Buyback on the Company

The Buyback is expected to enhance overall long term members’ value for continuing members, without compromising on the future growth opportunities of the Company, as well as provide an exit opportunity to the public shareholders.

The Buyback is not likely to cause any material adverse impact on the earnings of the Company, except a reduction in the treasury income which the Company could have otherwise earned from investments in fixed deposits and mutual funds.

This Buyback is proposed, considering the accumulated surplus funds available with the Company being in excess of the surplus amount needed to be retained by the Company for future growth of the Company as envisaged by the Board.

The Buyback may lead to reduction in outstanding Equity Shares, improvement in ‘earnings per share’ and enhanced return on equity, assuming that the Company would earn similar profits as in the past.

In accordance with Section 68(2)(d) of the Companies Act, the ratio of the aggregate of secured and unsecured debts owed by the Company shall not be more than twice the paid up Equity Share capital and free reserves post the Buyback.

The Company shall not raise further capital for a period of 1 (one) year from the expiry of the Buyback Period, except in discharge of its subsisting obligations like allotment of shares under Employee Stock Option Schemes etc.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the latest audited financial statement of the Company for the half year ended March 31, 2019 are as under:

Basis of Calculating Ramkrishna Forgings Buyback Price

The Equity Shares of the Company are proposed to be bought back at the Buyback Price, i.e., Rs.250/-(Rupees Two Hundred Fifty Only) per Equity Share.

The Maximum Buyback Price of Rs. 250/- per Equity Share has been arrived at after considering various factors, including but not limited to, the average of the weekly high and low of the closing price of the Equity Shares on NSE (the recognized Stock Exchange where the maximum volume of trading in the equity shares is recorded) for a period of 2 weeks preceding the date of Board Meeting i.e., till 20.03.2020), the net worth and performance of the Company. The Maximum Buyback Price excludes the Transaction Costs.

The Buyback Price represents

  • A premium of 1.07% and 21.27% compared to the average of the weekly high and low of the closing prices of the Equity Shares on the NSE (the recognized Stock Exchange where the maximum volume of trading in the equity shares is recorded), for a period of 2 weeks preceding the date of intimation of the Board Meeting i.e., till 17.03.2020) and for a period of 2 weeks preceding the date of Board Meeting i.e., till 20.03.2020) respectively.

The ratio of the aggregate of secured and unsecured debts owed by the Company after Buyback shall not be more than twice the paid-up capital and free reserves based on both audited standalone and consolidated financial statements as at 31.03.2019 of the Company.

Source of Funds for the Buyback

The actual number of Equity Shares bought back will depend upon the actual price paid for the Buyback, excluding the Transaction Costs paid for the Equity Shares bought back, and the aggregate amount paid in the Buyback, subject to the Maximum Buyback Size.

The Buyback (including the Transaction Costs) will be funded from the accumulated surplus funds available with the Company, in the form of cash and/ or out of internal accruals of the Company.

It is proposed to Buyback upto 4.81% and 4.82% of the paid-up share capital and free reserves based on the audited financial statements of the Company as at March 31, 2019 on standalone and consolidated basis respectively, from the open market through the Stock Exchanges. The Buyback of Equity Shares will result in a reduction in number of shares accompanied by a likely increase in EPS and return on capital employed. The Company believes that the Buyback will create long term value for continuing shareholders.
