Necessity of Smartlink Holdings Limited Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:

Buyback is a more efficient form of distributing surplus cash to the shareholders of the Company holding Equity Shares of the Company, inter-alia, for the following reasons:

  • The Buyback will help the Company to distribute surplus cash to its Equity Shareholders holding Equity Shares in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to the Shareholders;
  • The Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve allocation to the Small Shareholders the higher of (a) 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 accordance with the definition as per Regulation 2(1)(n) of the Buyback Regulations;
  • The Buyback would help in improving return on equity, by a reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to a long term increase in Shareholders’ value; and
  • The Buyback gives an option to the Shareholders 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 Smartlink Holdings Limited Buyback on the Company

The Buyback is not likely to cause any material impact on the profitability/ 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.

In the event that there is 100% acceptance of the Equity Shares tendered in the Buyback from the Equity Shareholders on a proportionate basis, the funds deployed by the Company towards the Buyback would be Rs. 47,45,00,000 (Rupees Forty-Seven Crore Forty-Five Lakh Only).

The Buyback is not expected to impact growth opportunities for the Company. 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.

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