How buybacks add value to shareholders

Here are some of the ways in which buybacks add value for shareholders.

  1. The Buyback actually helps the company to return surplus cash to its shareholders holding Equity Shares broadly in proportion to their shareholding. This is a way of rewarding the shareholders and increasing their stake in the company without any additional investment from their side.

  2. From the company perspective, the buyback reduces the outstanding shares and also the floating stock. This is normally positive for the stock even assuming that the P/E ratio for the stock remains constant. In addition, the buyback also helps the company to optimize its capital structure.

  3. It is choice given to shareholders. The Buyback gives 2 options to shareholders holding Equity Shares of the Company. Shareholders can either choose to participate in the buyback and get cash in lieu of Equity Shares. Alternatively, they can also choose not to participate and enjoy a resultant increase in their percentage shareholding, post the Buyback offer. The shareholders can make a conscious choice here.
