The case study, Vardhman Textiles Ltd.’s Buyback of Shares discusses the share buyback offer issued by VTL, one of the leading textile companies in India.

Also, VTL had sold its stake in one of its joint ventures and got cash of Rs. 4.13 billion. The growing cash balance and reserves and low debt to equity ratio motivated the management of VTL to go in for a share buyback in place of a regular dividend. The case provides information to understand the complete process of share buyback and to analyze whether the decision taken by VTL’s management was the right one or not.
