Munich Re continues share buy-backs


Munich Re intends to buy back up to 15 million shares for a maximum purchase price of €1bn by the 2011 Annual General Meeting.

On the basis of the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting on 28 April 2010, Munich Reinsurance Company’s Board of Management has resolved to buy back up to 15 million shares for a maximum total purchase price of €1bn (excluding incidental expenses) in the period between 7 May 2010 and, at the latest, the next Annual General Meeting on 20 April 2011. On the basis of the current share price (status: 5 May 2010), this would amount to around 5% of the share capital. The repurchased shares are to be retired in order to optimise the Company’s capital structure.
