  • 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 not
    to participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buyback, without any
    additional investment.
