In general, stock buybacks are often a money loser for a company. They tend to view it as a signal of confidence in hopes that it will protect share price. And although they can reissue the shares later (sell the stock), it seems like corporations tend to buy high and sell low. Not always, but buybacks don't often end up the best use of the company's money.
