ZURICH, Sept 16 (Reuters) - Geberit will launch on Thursday a share buyback worth up to 500 million Swiss francs ($551 million) over two years, the Swiss plumbing materials company said on Wednesday.
The repurchase programme announced in March covers around 2.6% of Geberit’s share capital, it said. The buybacks via a separate trading line on the SIX Swiss Exchange aim to reduce its capital.
