Cyient board to discuss buyback proposal on Jan 17
IT firm Cyient Monday said its board will discuss a proposal for a maiden buyback offer at its meeting on January 17.
Besides, the company's board of directors will, on the said date, meet to consider and approve financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2018.
"...the board meeting scheduled to be held on January 17, 2019, will also consider a proposal for buyback of the equity shares of the company," a BSE filing said.
However, the filing did not provide details of the buyback proposal.
Last week, Infosys had said it will buy back 10.32 crore shares, or 2.36 per cent, for not more than Rs 800 per share -- 17 per cent higher than the closing price of Rs 683.70 on the BSE. The total size of the buyback would be up to Rs 8,260 crore.

* JK Lakshmi Cement inks pact with FarEye
Logistics management platform FarEye Monday said it has been selected by cement manufacturer JK Lakshmi Cement to deploy its solutions.
"On our wide distribution network handling volumes around eight lakh tonnes/month, pilferage and back/forward loading are some of the key operational challenges that we face," Shailendra Chouksey, whole-time director at JK Lakshmi Cement, said.
Gaining better visibility into the company's vast network of multiple plants and about 10,000 destinations will help control pilferage, optimise capacity and eventually help deliver a superior customer experience, he added.
