Assessment: SH Kelkar Buyback

  • The Buyback is within the statutory limits of 10% of the fully paid-up equity share capital and free reserves and thus it does not need shareholders approval through postal ballot.
  • SHK has been maintaining a healthy dividend payout of about 35%.
  • SHK had entered into an agreement to acquire Italy based – Creative Flavours and Fragrances SpA (CFF) in January 2018 for the acquisition of 100% share capital of CFF, in tranches, over two to three years. In the first tranche, the company had acquired a 51% stake in 2018. The remaining stake will be acquired within three years.

  • SHK earnings has been volatile over the past quarters. 
  • Poor domestic off take has impacted performance in 4QFY19
  • Company has low levels of debt.
  • Adani Ports Buyback price is at a moderate premium to its prevailing market price which has been under pressure due to poor results in the last quarter.
  • SH Kelkar stock is not in F&O which may keep the stock volatile post buyback.
  • In case I participate in SH Kelkar Buyback buyback, it will be in very small way.
