The company said, Ricoh Asia Pacific Pte has rejected price of Rs 225, where the total number of shares to be acquired for successful delisting offer were tendered, as reported on the BSE.
The total number of equity shares tendered by the public shareholders in the delisting offer, as per BSE reports, were 6.94 million, of which the number of offer shares tendered at or below the discovered price of Rs 200 per share were 4.18 million.
Furthermore, the number of offer shares tendered is less than the minimum number of offer shares required to be accepted by the promoter for the delisting.
“Accordingly, the delisting offer is deemed to have failed and hence the promoter will not acquire any offer shares tendered by the public shareholders pursuant to the delisting offer and the equity shares of Ricoh India will continue to remain listed on the BSE,” it added.
The Ricoh India stock has rallied 262% from Rs 60 after Ricoh Asia Pacific Pte Ltd indicated its intention to delist the Indian arm on November 8. The benchmark S&P BSE Sensex gained 22% during the period.
