- The advantage with PSU buybacks like Oil India Buybacks that they are being done at a fast pace than private companies, which leads to better returns for arbitrage investors.
- From an arbitrage angle, at present rates and considering even chances of a reasonable acceptance ratio, Oil India Buyback is an average opportunity for arbitrage investors & may become attractive at any dip. The Buyback price announced falls short of investor expectations and the stock could see side ways movements tomorrow.
- OIl India made a 1:2 bonus issue in March/April 18 and these bonus shares if tendered shall attract higher taxation which may reduce the overall tendering Ratio.
