Necessity of Tech Mahindra Limited Buyback

The Buyback is being undertaken to return to the equity shareholders, in an expedient, effective and cost-efficient manner, surplus cash which is in excess of the Company’s ordinary capital requirements and current investment plans. The Buyback is being undertaken for the following reasons:

  • The Buyback will help the Company to return surplus cash to its Shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return to Shareholders;
  • The Buyback, which is being implemented through the Tender Offer route as prescribed under the Buyback Regulations, would involve allocating to the Small Shareholders the higher of number of shares entitled as per their holdings, or 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” as per Regulation 2(i)(n) of the Buyback Regulations;
  • The Buyback is expected to improve return on equity and earnings per share by reduction in the equity base, thereby leading to long term increase in Shareholders’ value; and
  • The Buyback gives an option to 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 not to participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company, post the Buyback offer, without additional investment.

Impact of Tech Mahindra Limited Buyback on the Company

We believe that the Buyback is not likely to cause any impact on the profitability or 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.

Assuming the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% from all the Eligible Shareholders upto their entitlement, the aggregate shareholding and the voting rights of the members of the promoter and promoter group of the Company, may increase to 35.96% post Buyback from the current pre Buyback shareholding of 35.87%, and the aggregate shareholding of the public shareholders in the Company may decrease to 64.04% post Buyback from the current pre Buyback shareholding of 64.13%.

The Company confirms that as required under section 68(2)(d) of the Companies Act, the ratio of the aggregate of secured and unsecured debts owed by the Company will be not more than twice the paid-up share capital and free reserves as on December 31, 2018 after the Buyback.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the Company’s audited condensed standalone and consolidated interim financial statements as at December 31, 2018 are as under:

Basis of Calculating Tech Mahindra Buyback Price

The Buyback Price has been arrived at after considering many factors, including, but not limited to, the trends in the volume weighted average market prices of the Equity Shares of the Company on the Stock Exchanges where the Equity Shares of the Company are listed, the net worth of the Company, price earnings ratio, impact on other financial parameters and the possible impact of Buyback on the earnings per Equity Share.

More on Tech Mahindra Buyback Price Calculation

Further, the Buyback Price of Rs. 950/- (Rupees Nine hundred and fifty only) per Equity Share represents:

  • A premium of 29.81% and 30.22% over the volume weighted average market price of the equity shares on BSE and NSE, respectively, during the three months preceding the date of intimation to the Stock Exchanges for the board meeting to consider the proposal of the Buyback, i.e. February 16, 2019 and
  • A premium of 19.18% and 19.24% over the volume weighted average market price of the Equity Shares on the BSE and on the NSE, respectively, during two weeks preceding the date of intimation to the Stock Exchanges for the Board Meeting to consider the proposal of the Buyback, i.e. February 16, 2019.

Source of Funds for the Buyback

The Buyback would be financed out of free reserves and/or such other sources as may be permitted by law through “Tender Offer” route and as required by the Buyback Regulations and the Companies Act, and on such terms and conditions as the Board may deem fit.

The Company shall transfer from its free reserves a sum equal to the nominal value of the equity shares bought back through the Buyback to the Capital Redemption Reserve Account and the details of such transfer shall be disclosed in its subsequent audited financial statements.

The Company has confirmed that the funds for the Buyback will be made available out of its internal accruals and not out of funds borrowed, if any, from banks and financial institutions.
