Ahold Delhaize Announces Further Share Buyback

Retailer Ahold Delhaize has announced its latest share buyback, which is part of the €1 billion share buyback programme that was announced in December of last year.

The group repurchased 638,098 common shares in the period from 8 May to 12 May 2017, at an average price of €19.51 per share.

This development brings the total number of shares repurchased under the programme to 18,9914,245, for a total consideration of €376.5 million.

Ahold Delhaize is now over a third of the way through its proposed programme to reduce company capital, which it expects to complete by the end of 2017.

Last week, the company announced a marginal increase in pro forma net sales in its first quarter, recording close to €16 billion worth of net sales for the period. It has also achieved, to date, some €56 million worth of synergy savings, out of a targeted €500 million worth of savings by 2019.
