Necessity of RITES 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 RITES Limited Buyback on the Company

The Company believes 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.

This Buyback is being undertaken, inter alia, for helping the Company to return surplus cash to the Eligible Shareholders broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to the shareholders.
