In this study, we review the rationale for stock repurchases in the context of verious situation of institutional, legal and individual firms. In the absence of informational asymmetries between stockho lders and management, and in the absence of differential tax rates and transactions costs, dividends and repurchasings shares are equivalent. We clarify this in various model analysises.However, the results of the empirical investigations suggest that the differences in the rates at which capital gains and dividends are taxd influence demand for stock repurchases. This is clear in shareholders 'attitudes for Dutch Auction repurchases or in a feature of the up-ward-sloping supply curve. This suggests the heterogeneous nature of shareholders in spite of the homogeneous hyposesis in the model analyzes.
We also investigate the interaction between the stock repurchases and the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The investigation suggests that the stock repurchases and ESOP determine simultaneously the financial restructuring strategey of the firms.
