We believe Redington may experience downfall in the coming months following high volatility in the market. Investors must keep in mind the high movements at this point in the market combined with elections approaching next year and other uncertainties in the international markets. Hence it poses considerable risks to participate in the buyback.

Therefore, we recommend investors to avoid the buyback.
