Abstract

The Companies Act (2008) provides for two methods through which a company can acquire its own shares. The first is the mechanism set out in s48 of the Act. This section essentially provides that a company may, to the extent that it is solvent and liquid, buy-back its own shares. From an approval perspective, the requirements of s48 are minimal and only require the approval (or decision) of the board.
