Vyapar Industries Buyback: Framework to Estimate Acceptance Ratio:

This framework is based on estimation of shareholding of Vyapar Industries shareholders  who hold around 1000 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 Monte Carlo Buyback is expected to be low. Considering a high tendering ratio, under normal circumstances Vyapar Industries Buyback could have an acceptance ratio of 30-60% depending on how much new arbitrage investors buy into the stock. The Stock is highly illiquid which makes it a high return high risk play.

Assessment: Vyapar Industries Buyback
    • Vyapar Industries share is thinly traded.
    • Vyapar Industries Buyback in 2017 resulted in 100% Buyback
    • In Sept 2018, Vyapar Industries Ltd approved sale of part investment of the Company in the Equity Shares of Beneficent Knowledge Parks & Properties Ltd.to the extent of 6,87,357 Equity Shares for Rs.495 Lacs to Excelestar Ventures 1, LLC, USA.
    • Purely based in Market prices and offered Buyback price, Vyapar Industries Buyback could be exceptionally good from an arbitrage angle, but there is huge certainty as the stock is traded thinly and does not have much history or figures to support it subsequent to buyback.  Thus it can be high rewarding but equally risky.
    • These are my estimates only and please do your own diligence in this matter as even what may appear as totally safe arbitrage investments in stock markets have inherent risks.
