Assessment:Responsive Industries Buyback
  • Company is changing its product portfolio which has resulted in lower Revenues  in last few quarters but Margins have seen considerable uptick from last two quarters. 
  • Responsive Industries sales rose 25.46% to Rs 224.70 crore and Net profit galloped  to Rs 18.40 crore in the quarter ended September 2018 as against Rs 1.45 crore in same quarter last year.
  • Having already declared the RD with the Board  announcement of Buyback, I expect Responsive Industries Buyback to proceed at a good speed & expect  these good quarterly numbers  to support the share price.
  • The company is being a small cap & not in F&O which could lead to some volatility post buyback. Good results reported by the company may be able to provide some amount of cushion.
