Definition of Frequently Traded Shares and Calculation of Weighted Average Number of Total Shares
As per the Securities And Exchange Board Of India (Substantial Acquisition Of Shares And Takeovers) Regulations, 2011 Frequently Traded Shares means shares of a target company, in which the traded turnover on any stock exchange during the 12 calendar months preceding the calendar month in which the public announcement is required to be made under these regulations is at least ten percent of the total number of shares of such class of the target company;
For example, Public announcement has been made on February 5, 2019, then will see the traded turnover from February 1st, 2018 to January 31st, 2019. NSE and BSE always displayed the traded turnover of the listed company on their exchange.
In continuation of the above example if total shares of the company on February 1, 2018, is 6,00,00,000 and on November 1, 2018, company allotted 3,00,00,000 shares more so now total shares is 9,00,00,000.
As we see the total shares is not identical throughout the year so we will calculate weighted average of total shares like:
|No. of shares||Weight||Total|
|6,00,00,000||0.75 (as this is for 9 months)(9/12)||4,50,00,000|
|9,00,00,000||0.25 (as this is for 3 months)(3/12)||2,25,00,000|
