R Systems Buyback: Estimate of Acceptance Ratio:

This framework is based on estimation of shareholding of R systems shareholders  who hold around 4000 number of shares. To this we have added estimates for
1) Few additional purchase  of Shares by existing shareholders with eye on earning additional returns through buyback.
2) Purchase of Shares by Arbitrage investors.

3) Data from earlier Buyback

Based on approximations indicated above, the entitlement ratio for R Systems Buyback is expected to be less than 10%. Considering a moderate tendering ratio, under normal circumstances R Systems Buyback could have acceptance ratio of 10-20%, a figure that can go up if less number of shareholders chose to tender their shares.
