In the news from buyback space, Infosys promoters, including co-founders N.R. Narayana Murthy and Nandan Nilekani, have offered to sell as many as 1.77 crore shares in the company's Rs 130 billion share buyback offer.

At a buyback price of Rs 1,150 per share, this could mean worth Rs 20 billion shares from the promoter group, if all the shares tendered by them are accepted in the buyback offer.

Speaking of share buybacks, many buybacks are set to hit a new record this financial year. As per Prime Database, in the first five months of FY18, at least twenty companies have offered to buy back shares worth Rs 480 billion.

Share Buybacks on Record Spree

As per Rahul Shah, co-head of Research, investors should not assume buybacks are always good. Here's an excerpt of what he wrote in a recent edition of The 5 Minute Wrapup:

  • The reason behind the buyback must be investigated. At the end of the day, an increase in earnings should be more a function of the inherent robustness of the business, as that's what will help it continue to grow at a healthy pace.

The topic also brings us to ask: Do buy-backs offer an arbitrage opportunity for retail investors? Ankit Shah has answered this question in a recent edition of Equitymaster Insider. You can access the issue here.
