Investors cheered the move, which is set to take place over the next nine months. E-Home’s market capitalisation fueled the massive rally in E-Home shares since it was worth approximately $24 million before the announcement.

Therefore, the $8 million share buyback program represents almost a third of the company’s valuation. In addition, the share repurchases will be made on the open markets, benefitting current shareholders by creating significant demand for E-Home’s shares.

E-Home is a company that provides services split into comprehensive family services, including home-based elderly care, nanny and sister-in-law services, internet services, and home and hospital care.

The firm’s second division focuses on industrial and public cleaning services, operating four auxiliary roads, smart homes, and installing home appliances and maintenance.

The company said that the purchases would be timed based on the ongoing assessments of the company’s capital needs, market conditions and the price of the company’s ordinary shares, and other corporate considerations.

I will be watching E-Home’s share price to see if it will cross above the crucial $1 mark before the mandatory six months elapse, after which it could risk being delisted from the Nasdaq.

Xie Wenshan, E-Home’s Chairman and CEO, said: “We believe the share repurchase program represents our confidence in our strong business performance and in the long-term outlook for the household services industry in China. Our fast-growing strategy and solid operation have demonstrated profitable growth. We believe that the share repurchase program is consistent with our goal of boosting shareholders’ confidence and increasing shareholder value.”

In most investors’ minds, the question is whether E-Home is a good investment at current prices. The short answer is that E-Home’s share price has fallen 58% in 2022 but recently formed a bottoming pattern.

EJH shares have a solid fundamental incentive to keep rising, driven by the share buyback plan. However, investors should remember that this is a Chinese company and be ready to deal with the volatility that could arise from sudden changes in government policies.
