    In the period commencing after the 2017 Annual General Meeting and extending up to the 2018 Annual General Meeting, Munich Re intends to buy back up to 11 million shares for a maximum purchase price of €1bn.

    On the basis of the authorisation granted by the Annual General Meeting on 27 April 2016 or a future authorisation, Munich Reinsurance Company’s Board of Management has resolved to buy back up to 11 million shares for a maximum total purchase price of €1bn (excluding incidental expenses) in the period between 27 April 2017 and, at the latest, the Annual General Meeting on 25 April 2018.
