Wipro buyback Final Update for Buyback Tender
Tendering date-14-28th August
If any investor sold his holding after the record date, he can purchase up to Monday 26th August last and tender them for buyback, to avoid any short delivery problem you should purchase up to 23rd August Friday.

SEBI has raised some Buyback Tax query against Wipro Possible further delay now.

If 65% acceptance ratio will come then remaining share costing will be 230.
2.1. Neha K  5/10/2019 11:11:28 AM
if the acceptance ratio is going to be 65%, what will do with remaining share. Shell we tender all the shares or just tender given amount of shares in the tender letter.
2.2. CA Vipul  5/10/2019 11:21:08 AM
I am assuming after the record date share price of Wipro will fall to 260. If you buy above 290 level you will not get any benefit of buyback assuming AR is 50% for retail category. To be in safe side buy below 285 level. My personal assumption is near the record date price will be Rs 300. If the price will go above 300, I am planning to exit. Don't see any big money with Wipro Buyback.
2.3. Rajiv Malhotra  5/14/2019 10:05:10 PM
Hello Sir, today Wipro reached 281, can we buy or wait to participate in the buyback. Please advice.

When is the record date for Wipro buyback is going to announce?
6.1. Buyback Investor  5/10/2019 11:06:57 AM
The record date for Wipro buyback is not yet announced, usually, it will take 4 weeks after the buyback announcement. We are expecting this will announce in 1 week of June. This depends on SEBI approval and paperwork. Will update you once the date will announce.
6.2. Vaibhav S  5/10/2019 11:36:29 AM
The postal ballot voting ends on 1st July, so record date is going to be announced after 3rd July. Till that time general election results will also declare. So wait for any dip and try to accumulate Wipro in the rages of 270 to 285. Then only you will get some benefit from Buyback.
