Why buy back shares

Share buybacks happen so that companies can use their profits or capital reserves to acquire their own shares on the market. In this way, the company returns value to shareholders, attracting investors. These share repurchases are non-taxable to shareholders and provide long-term appreciation in market valuations. Another practice is the purchase of dividends, which directly fill investors' pockets and are more common in utility stocks, whose stable demand rewards investors with payments. Companies use this tactic to maintain their shareholder base and attract future buyers, as they allocate a smaller percentage of profits to shareholder rewards, as they reinvest a large portion of this value in projects and development.
