Share buyback

Share buyback programme

Deutsche Börse Group generally aims to distribute dividends equivalent to between 40 and 60 per cent of adjusted net profit for the period attributable to Deutsche Börse AG shareholders. In addition, the company intends to spend the remaining available funds for organic, but also for complementary external growth. Share buybacks constitute another option to use these funds in case those cannot be spent to further develop the company.

From 27 November 2017 to 2 November 2018, Deutsche Börse Group executed two share buyback programmes totalling €400 million. For further information, see link to the “Completed share buyback programmes“ details below the following table.
