Stock Buyback Question
A company has initiated the process of selling unproductive land, representing 5% of its total assets, and using the proceeds to buy back its common shares. Holding other factors constant, these actions by the company will most likely result in a:
- lower sustainable growth.
- higher return on equity.

The answer is B. Can someone explain this to me in more detail? Thank you~!
