New Delhi, April 1 (IANS) Audio series platform Pocket FM on Monday announced it has completed its first ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) buyback worth $8.3 million.

Several former and existing employees, holding vested stocks in the company, participated in this process, the company said in a statement.
