Ahold Delhaize Commences €1bn Share Buyback Programme

Ahold Delhaize has commenced its latest €1 billion share buyback programme, which was announced on 13 November 2018. The retail giant expects to complete the programme before the end of 2019.

The purpose of the programme is to reduce the capital of Ahold Delhaize, by cancelling all or part of the common shares acquired through the programme.

Key Channels

Maintaining a balanced approach between funding growth in key channels and returning excess liquidity to shareholders is part of Ahold Delhaize’s financial framework to support its ‘Leading Together’ strategy.

The programme will be executed by intermediaries, allowing the repurchasing of shares in the open market during open and closed periods.

The programme will be executed within the limits of relevant laws and regulations, the existing authority granted during Ahold Delhaize’s 2018 annual general meeting of shareholders on 11 April 2018, and the authority, if granted, by the annual general meeting to be held on 10 April 2019.
