  • Share Buyback

    On May 12, 2015, the Annual Shareholders' Meeting granted the Managing Board of HUGO BOSS AG a new authorization for purchasing own shares. Until May 11, 2020, the Managing Board may acquire company shares up to a 10% proportion of the outstanding equity capital. However, no use of the authorization was made in the past fiscal year (2017).

    It may be exercised by the Company in full or in parts, on one or several occasions. The shares may be purchased on the stock exchange, by way of a public purchase offer made to all shareholders or by way of a public invitation to all shareholders to submit offers for sale; an option also exists to make the purchase by way of issuing tender rights to the shareholders.

    For more information on the authorization of the Managing Board for share buyback, please refer to:
