Abbott India - Buyback Update

I had in my previous post stated about the pending buyback offer. The buyback offer through the tender has commenced from today and will be on till Sept 2nd. The link to the details and forms are available here.

The company is buying back 7,97,500 shares at a price of Rs 630 per share. The management has gone for a lower buyback price compared to Rs 650 offered in the previous buyback. The paid up equity capital will reduce from Rs 14.47 crores to Rs 13.68 crores.

I wouldn’t be surprised if another buyback is announced post completion of this one as the parents philosophy is to aggressively buyback shares worldover.
