In order to compulsorily buy out shares from the remaining small shareholders Chettinad Cement proposes to consolidate the Face Value of its share from Rs. 10 /- to Rs. 2,00000 /-.
Small shareholders holding less than 20000 shares of Rs. 10 each and those holding in not multiples of 20000 would see such Non 20,000 multiple holdings get reduced to fractions .
There are , at present ,2886 small Non Promoter shareholders , Such fractions would be disposed off by the Promoters.
Although the Promoters have indicated a price of Rs.720 per Rs. 10 /-share , this is not fair value as this was the Exit price 3 years ago.
The consolidation of Face Value seems to be a ploy by Promoters to Buy shares at a manipulated Low rate ( throw away price.)
The Valuers etc are all engaged by the Managements and cannot be considered as Unbiased or totally Fair. Affected shareholders should be allowed to have their own valuers / Valuation Reports.
SEBI should enquire in the matter.
