What should investors do with Hinduja Global buyback offer?
Meanwhile, Hinduja global buyback is only around the corner and Manoj Dalmia, Founder and Director-Proficient Equities Limited, is of the view that investors should tender their share and wait for levels of Rs 3610 per share.
"Promoters hold about a 67% stake in this company and buyback might boost retail sentiments. The stock gained 6% on 11th Jan. Considering the volatile price movements, investors can tender their share and technically wait for Rs 3610 levels to cross," suggested Dalmia.
Earlier, the Board of Hinduja Global has also reviewed potential opportunities and agreed on in-principle one of the opportunities to acquire the digital business of NXTDIGITAL Limited (‘NDL’), a related party, through the issuance of shares.
The proposed acquisition of the digital business of NDL will be a strategic fit to the Company’s stated strategy of becoming a digital company.
