  • Triveni Engineering Buyback price is at a reasonable premium to its prevailing market price. Howver the stock has rallied considerably after the announcment for buyback and the also after announcement of buyback price. The stock already moved up from Rs. 55-56 levels.
  • Considering the size of issue the company there is no need for a postal ballot to seek share holders approval and hence the total time period will be lower than normal buybacks.
  • Triveni Engineering is not in F&O which may keep stock under pressure post buyback.
  • Good domestic trends and favourable internation prices may be working for the company.
  • A key risk in entering into buybacks right now is that markets are at high and buyback process takes some time for completion. While Triveni enginerring is a good company and good performance provides some some cushion. how long the market moves continue this way is quite uncertain due to COVID.
  • The buyback is smaller than the buyback last year.
  • Given the small size of Triveni Engineering Buyback and a sharp run up, I would like to enter Triveni Engineering buyback on small correction which is constrained by the approaching RD for buyback.
