Review & Recommendation

We advocate honest for Greaves Cotton buyback as acceptance ratio for the retail investors are going to be between ten to thirty percent (10-30%). We tend to rate Greaves Cotton buyback as 3/5 (Fair). Allow us to make a case for you why we predict this buyback isn't sensible for new retail investors -

  1. Profit per share if you purchase @150, will be thirteen percent (13%).
  2. Total retail holding is approx twenty percent (20%), therefore 700 Cr values of shares under the holding of retail investors. For retail class purchase fund going to be 15% of 240 that is 36 Cr (Thirty-six Crore). With the above calculation, the acceptance ratio is going to be between five to ten percent (5-10%) and actual acceptance ratio is will be between ten to twenty percent (10-20%).

Making a large profit isn't doable in Greaves Cotton purchase for a brand new capitalist, AN existing capitalist will exit in purchase and book profit.
