Looks like they're the same thing. Should these tags be merged?

  • I'd suggest posting an answer saying they should be merged and identifying which one should "win". Then people can post an alternative if they disagree. – GS - Apologise to Monica Jun 19 '20 at 18:16

I agree they are the same and should be merged. For what it's worth, I'd vote for "share-repurchase" since "buyback" is more colloquial (e.g. "buyback" in wikipedia links to "share repurchase").
