Bajaj Auto approves share buyback

Bajaj Auto’s Board of Directors has approved the proposal for buyback of the fully paid up equity shares at a price not exceeding Rs 4,600 per equity share and for an aggregate up to Rs 2,500 crore representing 9.61 percent and 8.71 percent of the aggregate of the total paid-up share capital and free reserves (including securities premium account). The auto major's board earlier this month had deferred a decision on its proposed share buyback.  

This is the first buyback announced by the company since 2000 wherein it had offered 1.8 crore equity shares at a price of Rs 400 per share. The company in its March quarter earnings said that it continues to face supply chain challenges, which impacted sales of motorcycles and commercial vehicles. 

Analysts say buybacks are a more tax-effective means of rewarding shareholders if company management perceives it as undervalued or when company promoters consolidate their stake in the company. This is more relevant in the case of stocks that have shown a sharp decline despite no apparent fundamental flaws.
