What is a buyback?

Buyback of shares is a process where a company buys back its own shares from investors.

The result of the whole buyback process is that the number of shares outstanding for the company is brought down.

After the company purchases its own shares, it often cancels them or keeps them as treasury shares. Treasury shares are the shares that may have come from a buyback or may have never been issued to the public in the first place.

Why do companies opt for buyback?

A primary reason companies opt for buyback is because they have too much cash on their books and very low investment.

Another reason for conducting a buyback is to improve valuations. When a company buys back shares, it results in reduction of the number of shares outstanding. In result, this improves the earnings per share (EPS) and return on equity.

Buybacks are also a more tax-effective form for rewarding shareholders rather than dividends.

What should investors do when companies opt for buyback?

Investors can tender their shares in a buyback if the offer is made at a much higher price than the current price. This becomes a tempting proposition.

However, long term investors should focus on the company's moat and the underlying fundamentals.
