Assessment: Wipro Buyback

  • This is the third buyback from Wipro. In last buyback the acceptance ratio was 52% and before that it was almost 100%.
  • The proposed Buyback is subject to approval of shareholders by way of a special resolution through a postal ballot and could take 3-4 months.
  • Promoters have indicated their intention to participate in the proposed Buyback.
  • Outlook for the quarter ending December 31, 2020: Management expects Revenues from IT Services business to be in the range of $2,022 million to $2,062 million. This translates to a sequential growth of 1.5% to 3.5%.
  • There was a strong jump in cash flows in the quarter.
  • Wipro being in F&O, Wipro Buyback may offer a reasonable opportunity to arbitrage investors as such stocks exhibit relatively lower volatility post buyback and some investors can hedge their positions as well.
  • Wipro has run up considerably in last few days in expectation of buyback. One cannot rule out some pressure on the stock price in coming days.
  • From an arbitrage angle, due to considerable run up in market price, I would wait for some dip in prices. The movement in the stock price price in coming days will have a bearing on its acceptance ratio and returns. A good traction in stock price could lead to arbitrage investors exiting the stock and in such case the expected acceptance ratio could end up higher and even approach 100% . Any denial of such opportunity will bring down the returns due to low acceptance ratio and a lower price post buyback.
  • This is a large and moderate opportunity and if markets are not very volatile, investors should get an opportunity to enter the scrip and make modest returns.
