Necessity of Thomas Cook (India) Limited Buyback
The Company’s management strives to increase the Equity Shareholders’ value and the Buyback would result in the following benefits, amongst other things:
- The Buyback will help the Company to return cash to its shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding, thereby, enhancing the overall return for them;
- The Company believes that this reservation of 15% for Small Shareholders would benefit a large number of the Company’s public shareholders, who would be classified as Small Shareholders;
- The Buyback is generally expected to improve financial ratios like earnings per share, return on capital employed and return on equity, calculated on the basis of financial statements, by reduction in the equity base of the Company, thereby leading to long term increase in shareholders’ value;
- The Buyback gives the Eligible Shareholders an option to choose either (A) participate in the Buyback and receive cash in lieu of their Equity Shares which are accepted under the Buyback, or (B) not to participate in the Buyback and get a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding in the Company post the Buyback, without additional investment.
