How to Bid for buyback?

A buyback of shares takes place via a tender offer or open market offer. As far as tender offers are concerned, the existing shareholders opt to accept the offer put forth by the company and tender their shares. This is done on a record date and in exchange for cash as offered by the company according to the prescribed buyback ratio.

On the other hand, an open market offer allows any equity shareholder of the company to participate in the buyback process. They can do so through their stockbroker while the buyback window is open.

Features of Buyback


Buybacks allow a company to regain control of its shares by repurchasing those held by shareholders. It also helps a company reduce the quantity of shares held by the general public. Buybacks help a company consolidate its ownership and improve its valuation. It is also instrumental in rewarding shareholders.


Buybacks allow a company to increase the value of shares, and in turn, improve the overall valuation of the company. Along with fostering trust amongst investors, they are also a tax-effective way of rewarding investors, especially when compared to dividends that are taxed thrice. Additionally, buybacks boost the price of the company’s shares while reducing supply within increased demand.


One of the major drawbacks of buybacks is that they give a false illusion about the company’s valuation. Similarly, the reduced supply of shares even when demand is high can drive up prices giving a false illusion to investors.
