Australia's pure-play online retailer of furniture and homewares, Temple & Webster Group Ltd (ASX: TPW), is having a good day on the ASX on Thursday, 16 March 2023. Shares of the company were trading 1.734% higher at AU$3.520, outperforming the broader S&P/ASX 200 index, which was down 2.14% as of 10.45 am AEDT. 

So why are TPW shares rising despite the weakness in the overall equity market? The online retailer today announced a share buyback, leading to buying in its shares.

According to the announcement, Temple & Webster intends to do an on-market share buyback for a maximum value of AU$30 million. This buyback program will commence from 3 April 2023 and continue over the next 12 months.

Commenting on the buyback program, the company said:


Worth mentioning here is that TPW shares have fallen over 40% in the last one year, and this is why the management probably believes that TPW shares are undervalued and hence the announcement of buyback.
