Was holding 33 shares. Entitlement was 5. Final acceptance was 6. I think there was mass buying under retail category as the acceptance ratio in the previous buyback was 100%.

As this process will take considering your PAN Card, but to be safer side, please contact the registrar and discuss your case. Please call Mr Giridhar and explain your case, he should be in condition to answer your question.

It''s almost 3 weeks from the record date for Mphasis when the company is going to announce Buyback dates.
3.1. CA Sachin jain  11/22/2018 2:53:22 PM
last year it took 5 weeks to declare buyback start and end date by Mphasis, we assume similar time window and expected dates to be finalized by 28th Nov 2018 as the record date for buyback was 25th Oct 2018.

Mphasis Buyback opportunity for retail Investors
  • The retail holding in MphasiS is less than 0.7% (as on March 31, 2018)

  • 15% reservation for the buy back of 3.8% of paid-up equity implies at least 0.57% of paid up equity will be bought from retail investors

  • Possible Acceptance ratio = 0.57 / 0.7 = 81% (as on March 31, 2018)

Retail investors looking for short term opportunity can buy the shares (upto the value of INR 2 lakhs - as on the record date) from the open market and tender them in the buy-back offer. Assuming acceptance ratio (range from 60%-80%) and the market price INR 1,170, investors can earn an absolute return between 9%-12% (subject to short term capital gains tax) over the next 2-3 months (average time taken from board approval to payout in recent tender offers). Any change in acceptance ratio could further impact absolute returns.

Key risks for Mphasis Buyback Retail Investors:
  • Additional retail shareholders buy the stock before the record date leading to lower acceptance ratio

  • The current market price (assumed for calculation of profits) drops before one is able to exit post buy back

Mphasis - As of 30th June 2018 - Promoters hold a 52.4% stake, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) control 29.2%, and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) hold 9.1%. The others, including retail, hold only 9.4%. This is why the acceptance ratio is expected to be quite high—nearly 80% — assuming all retail shareholders tender their shares.

Dear Admin, Why has the Music Today buyback not been listed on this site ?
9.1. Team TSB  8/7/2018 11:20:19 PM
Music Today buyback is an open market offer, so in such case, the retail investor can''t tender shares.
