This is the definition used by SDC: “Repurchases: indicates all deals in which a company buys back its shares in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions or a company’s board authorizes the repurchase of a portion of its shares.”
Repurchases can be found in the Thomson One –> Screening and Analysis –> Deals & league Tables –> M&A –> Advanced Search. Repurchases are a specific Deal Type in the M&A module. Go to Deal Info > Deal Type and select Repurchases.
You can also use the item ‘Repurchase Flag (Y/N)’ – this item can be selected by using the Item Search option (it’s not in the Item List).
