Mindtree to consider share buyback on June 28

After Cognizant and TCS, Mindtree has planned for a share buyback programme. The company informed the bourses on Thursday that a meeting of the board of directors is scheduled to take place on June 28, 2017, to consider a proposal to buy the company's fully paid-up equity shares.

The stock has underperformed both BSE Mid-cap and BSE IT index over a period of one year. Its closest peers include L&T Infotech and Vakrangee. The primary objective of a share buyback program is to arrest the fall in the value of a stock by reducing the supply of the stock, which essentially pushes up the share price through a better P/E multiple.

In the past five trading sessions, Mindtree Limited has gained around 3.22% in Friday’s trade and is expected to gain further. Mindtree Limited, an international information technology (IT) implementation and consulting company, delivers business solutions through global software development. The company operates in two segments, Product Engineering (PE) Services and Information Technology (IT) Services.
