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).

Filatex India Limited is among the country's leading manufacturers of Polyester Filament Yarn. The textile manufacturer's stock has rallied about 97% in a year's period whereas it is up more than 31% in 2022 (year-to-date or YTD) so far.
