How to Participate in buyback?

In this method of share Buyback, the company will be purchasing stocks from existing shareholders of the company directly from the market. Example: “ Atul Ltd.” announces buyback plan of its shares up to value of Rs. 7,500, it means that the company will be purchasing shares of " Atul Ltd. " from the open market at a price not exceeding Rs. 7,500 per share. Scenario 1- If the share price is below Rs. 7,500 in that case, the company will put buy order at Current Market Price and purchase shares. Scenario 2- If the share price is above Rs. 7,500, in that case, the company will put buy order at Rs. 7,500 only and if someone is ready to sell at that price or less then only company will get back shares.


As it is an open market buyback, so no arbitrage is available.


    Good that it is open market in the end. With a paltry 0.22% even single share participants might have bitten the dust

        I think Open Market buyback is banned by SEBI wef November or so.

          Open Buyback are not banned yet. I like the Open Market buybacks much more than Tender Offers.

            If not banned, atleast understand that it will be viewed as unwelcome/ undesirable which no reputable company may like to be classified as.

            Last year in March, the share price of this company was around ₹10000/. It is rising every day since the announcement of the Board meeting. I will sell my holdings today and decide about buying again after knowing the outcome of the Board meeting.

            Buy shares of the Company after the buyback announcement. In most cases share price will fall in a week or two after people know that it is Open market Buyback. Then Hold the shares for 2-3 years and then Sell.
