Share buy-back

In addition to the attractive dividend payout, Baloise conducts share buy-back programmes that complement its shareholder-friendly dividend policy.

Share buy-back programme 2017 - 2020

Baloise announced in its press releases of 26 October 2016 and 12 December 2016 its intentions to buy back a maximum of 3,000,000 own shares over the next 3 years. This corresponds to a maximum of 6% of the shares issued. The shares will be repurchased through the secondary trading line at the SIX Swiss Exchange Ltd for cancellation purposes.

With the announced share buy-back programme, Baloise will maintain its track record as a shareholder-friendly company that actively manages its capital and returns surplus capital to its shareholders. Similar programmes were already executed in 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2006, 2008 and 2015.

The share buy-back programme will be processed through the secondary trading line where Baloise exclusively will act as purchaser. Shareholders willing to sell Bâloise Holding Ltd registered shares may do so through the primary or secondary trading line. Sales of shares through the secondary trading line are subject to a withholding tax deduction of 35% on the difference between the repurchase price of the shares and the nominal value of CHF 0.10.
