Plus500 buyback program to end in August
Today’s regulatory filing is the latest in a list of documents that detail top executives of the Israel-based broker purchasing the company’s shares. This is part of the company’s latest share buyback program, which was announced in February of this year, in which the company plans to repurchase $30 million worth of its ordinary shares.
The latest share buyback program will run from February 12, 2020, up until August 31 this year. However, the program might end earlier on the date of the announcement of the Company’s interim results for the six months ending June 30, 2020.
Gonen is not alone in his efforts to buy Plus500 shares. As Finance Magnates reported earlier this week, the company’s Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Ari Shotland, bought 3,454 shares at a total price of around £27,101.7.
Omer Elazari also purchased more than £1.12 million worth of shares in the past few weeks, and Shlomi Weizmann purchased 100,000 shares, worth approximately £941,500.
