'There are a number of changes introduced by the Companies Act 2006 Act which have the effect of simplifying the share buyback procedure. A company is no longer required to have specific authorisation in its articles for the share buyback. The statutory declaration which was required under the Companies Act 1985 has also been replaced with a directors' statement.'

'A company is likely at some point in its life to need to return cash to its shareholders. This could simply be because a shareholder is retiring or pursuing other interests.'

'Using the share buyback procedure set out in the Companies Act is one means of achieving this.'

'This new article highlights various situations in which the share buyback procedure can be used, what funds can be used, what restrictions are applicable and the procedural steps that need to be taken to comply with the law.'
