Factors of Success for Share Repurchases: What factors have to be given to ensure that share repurchases create long-term shareholder value? A critical View

  • This paper deals with the question of which factors have to be given for successful share repurchases that create long-term shareholder value. Center of the thesis is the agency theory and its influence on share repurchases. Based on theoretical findings success factors for share repurchases are derived and then verified by case studies. The main drivers for a successful share repurchase elaborated by this paper are a suitable long-term executive compensation, an independent board of directors and a shareholder structure without a majority shareholder. Additionally the findings show that tying repurchases to certain share price thresholds improves the quality of share repurchases.
