Share Buybacks and Rule 10b-18

Share buybacks continue to attract media and regulatory attention. During this session, we will discuss the regulatory framework relating to company share buybacks, including the Rule 10b-18 safe harbor. We will also discuss the different ways in which companies may choose to structure share repurchases, and the advantages and disadvantages associated with each.  We will weigh whether the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 would encourage share buybacks.

Topics of this  CLE* webinar will include:

  • Basics of Rule 10b-18;
  • Required authorizations, disclosures, and documentation;
  • Accelerated share repurchases and other modified repurchase plans;
  • Tax considerations, including those arising from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 and
  • Legislative proposals relating to 10b-18 and other recent developments.
