Parent Tata Sons to get around Rs 12,960 crore

Tata Sons is likely to get around Rs 12,960 crore from the buyback as it holds 72.19 per cent stake in TCS, which will extinguish 1.08 per cent of its equity under the buyback programme. The buyback is being done at Rs 4,500 per share, a 21 per cent premium to the last close of the TCS stock.

Earlier, companies used to focus more on dividends than buybacks, but the government has started charging a 30 per cent tax according to the slab on dividends. Hence, companies have started giving benefits to their investors through buyback offers.

Taxation on buyback profit is lower than dividend taxation.
