13. From the information given below calculated the equity share for buy back:
Equity share capital         =             1200000
Free reserves                    =             1800000
Securities Premium         =             600000
Debentures                        =             2500000
Creditors                             =             1100000
Ans: 750000
Debt equity ratio (after buy back) = Debt / Equity (must be 2:1 after buy back)
=> 2 = (2500000. + 1100000 creditors)/equity (After buy back)
=> Equity (after buy back) = 1800000
Amount of equity available for buy back = Equity before buy back – Equity after buy back
                                                                                = 3600000 – 1800000
                                                                                = 1800000
Amount of buy back permissible = 25% of equity capital and free reserves or amount available for buy back (Lower)
= 25% of 3000000 or 1800000
= 750000 or 1800000
= 750000
