Summary: The amount shareholders will receive under Telstra’s buyback proposal depends on the average price of Telstra shares. The size of the dividend also depends on a discount that will be decided by a tender process.

Key take-out: In Telstra’s buyback, the amount of the capital payment is fixed, while the value of the fully franked dividend and the amount of the franking credit received will vary.
