Michelin amends share buyback agreement
The partial share buyback scheme authorised at Michelin’s Annual Shareholders Meeting on 16 May 2014 and announced and further reported in January 2015 has been amended in regards to its term and maximum limit. Under these changed terms, a Michelin-appointed investment service provider will now sell an unspecified number of Compagnie Générale des Établissements Michelin shares, representing a maximum amount of €75 million instead of a maximum of one million shares, as originally announced. The shares will be sold until 30 September 2015, rather than the previously announced date of 27 November 2015.
All of the shares bought back under the Agreement will be cancelled, the tyre maker reports.
