    Buy Back Behavior of Indian



    Buyback of shares relates to the company buying back its shares which it has issued earlier from the market. This pap

    examines the characteristics of share repurchasing firms and market reaction to multiple offers in India. The study find

    limited offers of multiple repurchases. Only 30% of initial repurchases return to the market with the offer of second shabuyback with an a!erage time gap of ".#$ years. Interest in share buyback program me has grown phenomena

    worldwide o!er the past twenty years. arge firms with more !ariable operating income lower &TB ratios and paying low

    di!idends are fre'uent repurchases while small firms with stable operating income higher &TB and payout ratios a

    infre'uent repurchases.

    &arket reaction to multiple offers is in contradiction to signaling hypothesis predictions. The initialor infre'uent repurchas

    earn lower announcement day returns than fre'uent or subse'uent repurchases. (urther the o!erall )umulati!e *bnorm

    +eturn ,)*+- is negati!e in postoffer period indicating that all positi!e returns are reali/ed in preoffer period only.

    e conclude that rather than signaling hypothesis market reaction to subse'uent buybacks is better explained by free ca

    flow hypothesis. The signaling hypothesis has been !iewed as a basic explanation for the share repurchases *ccording

    this hypothesis manager1s employ repurchases to reduce information asymmetry and signal their desire for impro!emarket !aluations. The announcement of premium buybacks con!eys to the market the managers1 confidence that t

    share is worth more than current market !alue and also relating to the fundamentals or the future increase in cash flows

    the firms.

      The success of the buyback program is in!ersely proportional to the number of shares bought back. If the shares

    ha!e not been bought back the buyback program will be seen as most successful as it achie!ed the obDecti!e of lending

    stability to the scrip. On the other hand if the entire numbers of shares are bought back it will imply that the buyback

    program was unsuccessful in imparting confidence to the in!estors. Gowe!er most of the sample buyback

    announcements ha!e recei!ed a positi!e response from the market indicating that the shareholders and in!estors did not

    ha!e faith in the ability of the companyFs management.

      9s per the analysis of the above 24 Companies- it is interpreted that number of

    companies havin$ success in &00O buyback is very less% uy >ac- and Shareholder?s @ealth.

      5ne can analy/e the pattern of returns from the perspecti!e of tendering,participating- and nontendering ,no

    participating- shareholders. +eturn to tendering shareholders is the buyback premium while the returns to the nontenderishareholders are in the form of capital gains.

    Inference (Table 5):

      Out of 57 )ompanies nonparticipating shareholders of "7 )ompanies suffered erosion of their capital hensupporting the argument that the buy backs in India are dri!en by moti!es not necessarily good for existing shareholder(or 50 )ompanies out of 57of the companies spending on Buy backs resulted in decline in Book !alue and also resulted &arket :rice post 3 months from the date of announcement to less than that of Buy Back.

    that the announcement lead to increase in share prices only for few sessions on account of

    Table 7

      +oute adopted for buyback of shares has a significant impact on the success of the program. :rice reaction to a

    buyback announcement depends on both the type and terms of the buyback offer.

    Inference (Table 7):

      (or companies which went through Tender Offer their *rithmetic &ean is only 7% in short +un while that of companies

    with Open &arket offer it was "7%. But in ong +un in terms of :rice changes companies with Tender offer had &ean of

    ?.#6% than that of Open &arket offer companies which was only ?.50%.

      Gence in )ontrast of the paper being followed our findings are that if the obDecti!e of Buy back is to shore up share

    market confidence that Open &arket Offer is better.

      The Gypothesis that Buy back through open market are more successful in meeting the obDecti!e of the program. Thisis because open market offer act as deterrent to short sellers as the company can time the buy back during depressed

    share prices.

      It is strongly e!ident from this study the stocks start showing positi!e abnormal returns for (irst Time Buybacks but

    with multiple buybacks the abnormal return reduces to a considerable le!el as compared to the first time buybacks.

    (urther the o!erall )umulati!e *bnormal +eturn ,)*+- is positi!e in postoffer period indicating that all positi!e returns

    are reali/ed in post offer period only .hence we can understand that Indian market is semistrong market and signaling

    hypothesis is consistent with the findings.
