TCS share buyback dates have been announced

TCS share buyback – Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) revealed the dates for its massive buyback share sale on Monday. The company said in a regulatory filing that the offer for its Rs 18,000 crore share buyback will open on March 9 and close at 5 p.m. on March 23. 
 
1 stock share for every 7 equity shares held on the record date will be repurchased. TCS stated that the reserved category for small shareholders will have 1 equity share for every 108 equity shares, while the ratio for all other qualified shareholders will be 1 equity share for every 108 equity shares. 
 
TCS’ board of directors approved a buyback of shares worth Rs 18,000 crore, or 1.08 percent of the total paid up equity share capital, at a price of Rs 4,500 per equity share, while reporting its quarterly results for the October to December quarter of 2022-2022. 
 
The repurchase of shares of stock by the firm that issued them is referred to as a share buyback. The issuing business pays shareholders the market value per share and re-absorbs the amount of its ownership that was previously allocated among public and private investors.
