Abstract: This paper aims to examine one of the most important issues in the international corporate laws, which is the issue of share repurchases known as treasury shares. This paper investigated corporate laws, stock exchange regulations, research literatures and stock trading volume for repurchase activities. Covering a sample of thirty-five countries developed and emerging markets. The study found that there is an increasing movement in the world stock market towards adopting or deregulating the share repurchase activities, More than half of the selected sample witnessed a change in the related laws (especially corporate laws) of share repurchases during the period 1995 to 2000. Moreover, there is a toleration to use the treasury share in enhancing the stock market during stock crises and extraordinary market price volatility. Based on upon findings, a modal has been suggested and articulated to be considered as a stabilization instrument for stock marketing.
