Ahold Delhaize Issues Share Buyback Update

Ahold Delhaize has said that it has purchased a total of 1,066,619 of common shares in the business between 9 and 13 January, as part of a share buyback scheme announced in December.

‘The shares were repurchased at an average price of €19.5860 per share for a total consideration of € 20.9 million,’ the retailer said.

In December, as part of its Capital Markets Day, Ahold Delhaize announced a €1 billion share buyback programme, as part of a strategy to reduce the capital of Ahold Delhaize.

It will enable the retailer to maintain ‘a balanced approach between funding growth in key channels and [return] excess liquidity to shareholders’, according to a statement issued earlier this month.
