Wipro board to consider stock repurchase on 13 October

This follows larger peer Tata Consultancy Services Ltd approving a 16,000 crore programme to buy back equity shares at 3,000 apiece

Wipro Ltd will discuss on 13 October a proposal to buyback its equity shares, the software services company said in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.

This follows larger peer Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) Ltd approving in a board meeting earlier in the day a 16,000 crore programme to buy back equity shares at 3,000 apiece.

Last year, the board of Wipro had approved a proposal for buying back up to 333 million shares at 325 per share, aggregating 10,500 crore, and comprising 3.69% of its total paid-up equity capital.

Wipro is set to announce its fiscal second quarter earnings on 13 October after market hours. “...the Board of Directors will be considering a proposal of buyback of equity shares of the company at the...meeting scheduled to be held on October 13, 2020," Wipro said in a regulatory filing.

However, no other details were provided.
