CNI Research undertakes a study on ?Buyback and its effect on Investor Wealth?

CNI research Limited, the leading BSE listed research company that focuses on small & mid-caps, undertook a study on ?Buyback of shares and its effect on investor wealth?, which was released today. More than 40,000 subscribers of CNI portal will be able to access this study.

New Delhi - CNI Research undertakes a study on ?Buyback and its effect on Investor Wealth? Analyses the effect of Buyback and its effect on share prices of 22 companies who opted for buyback in 2008-09.

The CNI study analyses 22 companies which made buyback offers in 2008-09. These include Reliance Infra, Madras Cement, Sasken, SRF, GT Offshore, DLF, TTK Healthcare, Bosch, ANG Auto, Gujarat Flurocarbons, IPCA, EID Parry, etc.

History of buybacks in India sends mixed signals whether to participate in the buyback program or not. Going by the statistical data, CNI research found that the share price always declines abruptly after the announcement of buyback. From March 2008 till date, Sensex and Nifty have declined by around 43 percent. Those companies which started buyback in March & April of ?08 saw a decline in share price of more than 60 percent.

?It is said that ?depressed markets are not so bad after all? - at least for some companies and their promoters. It is the ripe time for the promoters to increase stake in their respective companies through the buyback route. The icing on the cake is, of course, that there is no outlay of the promoter?s personal funds as buybacks are funded by the companies themselves?, says Mr. Kishor Ostwal, CMD, CNI Research Ltd.

The buybacks are also gaining popularity amongst MNC?s and increasing number of them are opting for this route. Over all while there were only six buyback offers in 1999, the figure rose to eight in 2000, and jumped to over 22 in 2008-09.

CNI Research examined the price of all 22 scrips at the time of approval and today?s? share price, and saw that the values depreciated by more than 50% in over half the companies studied.

The study throws open several questions and calls for the authorities to take cognizance of the issue of loss of investor wealth, especially retail investors and come out with regulations that look at safeguarding the interest of the retail investor.

CNI Research also feels that Buyback should be made a time bound programme which will really relate to the spirit of the law made for buybacks. The unlimited period of buyback without using the required cash set aside for such purpose at the time exhibits the motivated move of promoters to harm the interest of the minority shareholders.
