Necessity of Wipro 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;
  • This 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 Wipro Limited Buyback on the Company

The Buy-Back is not likely to cause any material 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 that the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full Acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders up to their Buyback Entitlement, the aggregate shareholding of the Promoter and Promoter Group post completion of the Buyback may increase from 74.01% to [●]%.

Also, if none of the public shareholders participate and only the Promoter and Promoter Group participate to the extent of the Buyback Entitlement, their shareholding may reduce from 74.01% to [●]% of the total equity share capital of the Company.

The debt-equity ratio following the Buyback, both on standalone and consolidated basis, shall be compliant with the permissible limit of 2:1 prescribed by the Companies Act even if the response to the Buyback is to the extent of 100% (full Acceptance) from all the Eligible Shareholders up to their Buyback Entitlement.

Salient financial parameters consequent to the Buyback based on the latest audited standalone financial statements for the period ended on March 31, 2020 are as under:

Parameters (based on audited standalone financial statements for year ended March 31, 2018) Pre Buy-back Post Buy-back
(Assuming Full Acceptance)
Net worth (Rs in Lakhs) 51,54,559 42,04,559
Return on Net worth (%) 17.21% 21.10%
Earnings Per Share (Rs) (Basic) 7.79 8.13
Book Value per Share (Rs) 90.19 76.76
P/E as per the latest audited standalone financial statements 43.04 41.24
Total Debt / Equity Ratio 0.09 0.12

Basis of Calculating Wipro Buyback Price

The Buyback Price has been arrived at after considering various factors such as

  • the share price benchmarks on the NSE, the stock exchange where the maximum volume of trading in the Equity Shares is recorded,
  • the net worth of the Company, and
  • the impact on the earnings per Equity Share.

More on Wipro Buyback Price Calculation
