How to apply for Gokul Agro Resources rights issue

There are multiple ways for a shareholder to apply for a rights issue – 

  1. Usually, eligible shareholders will receive Rights Entitlement (RE) in their Demat account before the issue opens. REs are temporary Demat securities that allow shareholders to apply for rights issues.
  2. Demat account holders can choose to apply through the Applications Supported by Blocked Amount (ASBA) process if their bank supports it. 
  3. The Registrar and Transfer Agent (RTA) of the company can also send a Composite Application Form (CAF) via courier to those who do not want to apply online. The filled form can be submitted at a Self-Certified Syndicate Bank (SCSB) branch. 

However, RTAs can also allow you to apply online. You’ll need to provide the following details.

  • Cheque/DD details (non ASBA)
  • Depository details
  • PAN number (including that of a second holder if joint account)
  • DP ID and beneficiary number 
  • Signature – In the case of a joint account the form should contain the signatures of both parties
  1. In case you want to split your rights issue, you need to fill in Part D of the application form. 

Should you subscribe?

When you decide whether to participate in a rights issue or not, remember that if you ignore the offer, your shareholding will get diluted due to the extra shares issued by the company. 

In the last 3 years, Gokul Agro Resources Ltd(GARL) has proved to be a multibagger, going from Rs. 7 to Rs. 111. Recently, it saw a rise in its share price by more than 80% in the period of 17th-24th Oct 2022. Since then its share price has corrected and has been slowly dropping. 

What is a rights issue?

The rights issue is an offer to existing shareholders to buy additional shares. Cash-strapped companies sometimes release rights shares when they need to raise additional funding. The offer gives the right to the shareholders but not the obligation to buy new shares of the company at a discounted price.

The rights offer gives shareholders securities called rights. With the rights, the shareholders can buy new shares at a lower rate than the current market price on a fixed future date. Individuals can choose to  increase their ownership of the company by participating in the rights issues.

One of the important numbers to know regarding the rights issue is the rights issue ratio. Rights issues are generally shared on a pro-rata basis at a pre-determined and declared rate. Gokul Agro Resources rights issues will be available at a ratio of 1:32. For 32 shares held already on the record date, shareholders will receive 1 rights share at Rs. 92 per share (including share capital of Rs. 2 and share premium of Rs. 90). 

Final words 

As on 13th March 2023, Gokul Agro share price at NSE stock exchange was Rs. 112.20, meaning the rights issues will be available at a discounted price. The stock price has slightly fallen though, since the announcement of the rights issue.
