Metroglobal Buyback : Acceptance Ratio Possibilities:

This framework is based on estimation of shareholding of Metroglobal ltd. shareholders  who hold around 4000 number of shares. To this we have added estimates for
1) Few additional purchase  of Shares by existing shareholders with eye on earning additional returns through buyback.
2) Purchase of Shares by Arbitrage investors & data of last buyback

Based on approximations indicated above and considering a moderate tendering ratio, under normal circumstances MetroGlobal Buyback could have acceptance ratio of more than 60% a figure that will also depend to some extent on new arbitrage investors who buy into the stock and the tendering ratio.

Assessment: Metroglobal Buyback

  • Company has been making profits buy has not paid any dividend.
  • MetroGlobal Buyback Review is trading at 0.27 times its book value.
  • The company was formed after amalgamation of Metrochem Industries Limited (MCIL) with Global Boards Limited (GBL) in 2011.
  • As the company does not have the requirement to go for postal ballot and seek share holders approval , RD has already been announced and the buyback should move at a relatively faster pace.
  • Metroglobal is a small cap which may make it volatile post Buyback.
  • The stock has moved up in anticipation of buyback and is hovering around the buyback price. Unless there is some correction, I do not intend to participate in Metroglobal buyback.
