XCPCNL Business Services Announces Share Buyback Initiative and Reduces Authorized Share Capital

The stock was in the middle of a strong rally last week and had ended up with gains of as much as 38% for the week. The company had come into sharp focus among investors back on October 5 when it announced that it had reduced the Authorized Share Count in XCPCNL Business Services Corporation by as much as 250,000,000. The reduction had been affected back on October 4, 2022.

Such a reduction is often seen as a positive development by investors since it makes the shares rarer and hence, could eventually unlock considerable value. As on October 5, 2022, the Authorized Share Count in the company stood at 500,000,000.

It was an indication that XCPCNL Business Services Corporation was looking to boost shareholder value and at the same time, working towards the reduction of more dilution in the stock. It was a step that was a precursor to the share buyback program that the company was going to embark on.
