Share Buy Back (Selective)

A company may selectively buy back shares from some shareholders while leaving others unaffected. This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as to increase control over the company or to improve the financial position of the company.

How to buy back shares?

In order to buy back shares, a company must have the necessary authorisation from its shareholders. Once authorised, the company can buy back shares on the open market or from specific shareholders. ASIC requires that a company seeking to buy back shares must first obtain shareholder approval. Shareholder approval can be granted at a general meeting or in accordance with the company's constitution. Once shareholder approval has been given, the company must notify ASIC of its intention to buy back shares. ASIC has specific rules that a company must follow when buying back shares. These rules are designed to protect shareholders and ensure that the buy back is conducted in a fair and transparent manner. Some of the key rules include:

  • The company must buy back shares at market value
  • The company cannot buy back more than 5% of its shares in any 12 month period (unless selective buy back method)
  • Shareholders must be given 14 days' notice of the intention to buy back shares
  • The company must have enough cash available to settle the buy back
  • The company constition must allow for a share buy back

If a company breaches any of these rules, it may be subject to enforcement action by ASIC.The decision to buy back shares is a significant one and should not be made lightly. Companies should seek professional advice to ensure that they comply with all relevant laws and regulations.
