News📰: Softbank Group spends 500 bn JPY on Share Buy Backs

Softbank Group Corp or SBG (9984 JP) plans to spend 500 bn Yen (c. 4.8 bn$) on Share Buy Backs, potentially purchasing about 7% of currently Oustanding Shares that will then be retired.

  • This plan follows Elliots proposal, the amount falls way short though
  • Share Buy Backs should (in theory) help closing the Valuation gap (NAV minus fair value)
  • I like the news, especially after the strong sell off
