The board of KDDL Ltd. has approved the company’s first-ever buyback of its equity shares. This significant corporate action will see KDDL repurchase up to 2.37 lakh equity shares, each with a face value of Rs 10, pending shareholder approval.

Buyback Details and Premium Price

The buyback price is set at Rs 3,700 per share, representing a 12% premium over KDDL’s closing price on Tuesday. The total consideration for the buyback will not exceed ₹88 crore. KDDL plans to repurchase up to 1.9% of the company’s total equity from shareholders, including participation from the company’s promoters.

Tender Offer Route

The buyback will be conducted via the tender offer route, meaning the company will repurchase the shares at the predetermined fixed price.

The last significant corporate action by KDDL was a rights issue in 2021.
