AXA launches share buy-back program for up to 1.7 billion Euro


AXA statement

AXA’s Board of Directors approved the launch of a share buy-back program for up to Euro 1.7 billion

“The share buy-back program announced today reflects the strength of AXA’s balance sheet, and demonstrates the Group’s financial discipline. It is also a reflection of the confidence we have in our business profile, strategy and prospects”, said Thomas Buberl, Chief Executive Officer of AXA.

In addition to the Euro 1.7 billion share buy-back program announced today, AXA intends to launch a further share buy-back program in 2022 for up to Euro 0.5 billion to neutralize earnings dilution from disposals announced after December 1, 20201, as communicated during AXA’s Investor Day on December 1, 2020.

The Euro 1.7 billion share buy-back program is expected to commence on or about November 8, 2021, and to be completed by the end of April 2022. AXA will buy back its own shares in accordance with the terms of its share repurchase program which has been authorized by the General Shareholders’ Meeting of April 29, 2021. AXA intends to cancel all repurchased shares.

In the event that one or several banks are mandated to carry out the share buy-back program(s) referred to above, further details will be communicated at the appropriate time.
