Delivering Successful Company Buybacks

A company buyback of shares is a popular and attractive route for shareholders to realise value and exit the business. The payment on the buy-back can qualify for capital treatment and is therefore taxed at lower rates than dividends, providing significant tax savings for the exiting shareholder. It is also a win for the shareholders as it uses the company’s existing reserves rather than having to pay personally with income that’s already taxed. Avondale have significant expertise and a history of delivering successful and sensitive share buyback negotiations.
