CRH has now completed the third phase of its share buyback programme, returning a further €100 million of cash to shareholders (the ‘Phase 3 Programme’). Between 27 November 2018 and 21 December 2018, 4.1 million ordinary shares were repurchased on the London Stock Exchange. This brings total cash returned to shareholders under the ongoing €1 billion share buyback programme to €800 million.

CRH has also announced that it has entered into arrangements with UBS A.G., London Branch to repurchase ordinary shares on CRH’s behalf for a maximum consideration of €200 million (the ‘Phase 4 Programme’). The Phase 4 Programme commenced on 2 January 2019, and will end no later than 29 March 2019. This will complete the €1 billion share buyback programme as announced on 25 April 2018.

Under the terms of the Phase 4 Programme, ordinary shares will be repurchased on the London Stock Exchange and/or Euronext Dublin. CRH has entered into non-discretionary instructions with UBS to conduct the Phase 4 Programme on its behalf and to make trading decisions under the Phase 4 Programme independently of CRH in accordance with certain pre-set parameters.

The Phase 4 Programme, the purpose of which is to reduce the share capital of CRH, will be conducted within the limitations of the authority granted at CRH’s AGM on 26 April 2018 to repurchase up to 10% of the Company’s ordinary shares in issue (being 56,199,571 ordinary shares following the completion of the first, second and third phases of the buyback programme).
