A buyback, also known as a share repurchase, is when a company uses excess capital in the form of cash or debt to purchase its own shares on the public market, thereby reducing the number of shares outstanding. In doing so, the company's management signals to the marketplace that it believes its stock is under-priced and that a buyback is the best way to allocate the company's resources.
