A successful delisting will also provide an exit opportunity to Polaris shareholders especially given low liquidity. The delisting price is determined by the reverse book build process and Virtusa will have the option to accept or reject the discovered price.

"We will accept the discovered price if it is reasonable and makes sense to Virtusa and its shareholders financially," Virtusa said, adding that the recent run up in the stock price has raised concerns for them.
