Further, Route Mobile informed that the firm's trading window will remain closed from 23 June, 2022 till further intimation is submitted to the stock exchanges.

"In terms of Company's Code of Conduct ('Code of Conduct') for Prevention of Insider Trading, the trading window of the Company shall remain closed from June 23, 2022 till further intimation is submitted to the Stock Exchanges," the statement read.

A share buyback, also known as share repurchase, is a corporate action to buy back its own outstanding shares from its existing shareholders usually at a premium to the prevailing market price. It can be an alternative tax-efficient way to return money to shareholders. 

Share buybacks reduce the number of shares in circulation, which can increase the share value and the earnings per share (EPS).

Route Mobile last month acquired the artificial intelligence-based blockchain and DLT platform of Teledgers Technology for over 130 crore.

Under the agreement, Route Mobile subsidiary Route Ledger paid 4.9 crore as advance to Teledgers within 30 business days of signing the business transfer agreement and 125 crore on closing of the acquisition of the platform, Route Mobile had said.

Further, the Route Mobile arm paid 10 lakh to Teledgers as a license fee and performance-linked consideration based on the operational performance of the Teledgers.
