A share buyback is a purchase by a company of its own shares. They are normally undertaken in order to return cash to shareholders.

If a company wishes to buy back its shares it must follow the procedures set-out in the Companies Act 2006, including a requirement that the buyback is made pursuant to a contract approved by the company’s shareholders.
