Necessity of Star Cement Limited Buyback

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

  • The Buyback will help the Company to distribute surplus cash to its shareholders holding equity shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to shareholders
  • Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve allocation of 15% of the outlay to small shareholders. The Company believes that this reservation of 15% for small shareholders would benefit public shareholders, who would get classified as “Small Shareholder”
  • It would help in improving return on equity, by a reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to long term increase in shareholders’ value
  • 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
  • The Buyback will help in optimizing the capital structure.
