Necessity of Star Cement Limited Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:

  • The Buyback will help the Company distribute surplus cash to the Equity Shareholders broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to Equity Shareholders;
  • Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, involves a reservation of up to 15% of the Buyback Size for Small Shareholders. The Company believes that this reservation of up to 15% for Small Shareholders would benefit a large number of the Company’s public shareholders, who would be classified as Small Shareholders for the purposes of the Buyback;
  • The Buyback would help in improving financial ratios like earnings per share and return on equity, by reducing the equity base of the Company; and
  • The Buyback gives the Eligible Shareholders the choice 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 Star Cement Limited Buyback on the Company
