11th Jan’19 – Coverage closure on Linde India

 

Linde India (NSE – LINDEINDIA) – Nov’18 Special situation

CMP – 789.95 (BSE); 790.00 (NSE)

Rating – Neutral and Coverage closure; this is not an investment advice (refer rating interpretation)

Linde India special situation opportunity was initiated in Nov’18 around 597 odd levels based on delisting offer announced by Linde Plc (Linde India’s parent company).

The floor price for the offer is Rs 428.50 per share. The bidding date for delisting offer opens on 15th Jan’19 and closes on 21st Jan’19.

Like all the previous delisting cases, we don’t intend to participate in bidding process because we would not like our shares to be locked and then run through the risk of offer failing due to various reasons.

At the same time, considering substantial increase in volatility during bidding period and the fact that we are getting decent premium on the floor price and our initiation price, we would like to close the opportunity around current levels of 790 with gains of ~32% in 2 months.

It is important to note here that stock could end up getting de-listed at 900-1000 odd levels; however at the same time if the requisite number of shares does not get tendered or if the promoters decline the discovered price, the stock price will come crashing down to 400-500 odd levels. If the latter pans out, one may not get enough time to exit from the stock and we are therefore closing the opportunity around current levels than trying our luck for further 10-20% gains.

 

Disclosure: I have personal investment in Linde India and have not traded in the stock in the last 30 days.
