This is the first ever buyback by Tech Mahindra, following buybacks by its peers such as Infosys and TCS; where major IT companies are rewarding shareholders. Tech Mahindra, in particular, said that it intends to return excess cash to the shareholders in the form of buybacks and dividends.

The buyback represents management’s positive view for the underlying business in future and hopes to strengthen positive sentiment in the market. The company posted good results as of this quarter and we do not see any fundamental risk in the company at present. But lower acceptance ratio does not seem to present a good buyback opportunity here.
