Share buy-back programme


As announced on 5 August 2021, Glencore plc (the "Company") will commence a share repurchase or buy-back programme of up to USD650 million (the "Programme"), which may continue until the 2021 full year results are announced in February 2022.

The Programme will be effected in accordance with the terms of the authority granted by shareholders at the 2021 AGM and its purpose is to reduce the capital of the Company. It is currently intended that any ordinary shares of the Company (the "Shares") purchased will be held in treasury.


The Company has entered into an agreement with Citigroup Global Markets Limited (the "Bank") to conduct the Programme, under which trading decisions may be undertaken by the Bank in accordance with the directions of the Company. If the Company is unable to do so, the Bank is mandated to make trading decisions concerning purchases under the Programme independently of the Company.

The Bank may undertake transactions in the Shares (which may include sales as well as purchases and may include participation in block purchases) in order to meet its obligations pursuant to its agreement with the Company.

The implementation of the Programme is in line with the Company's stated financial policies and thresholds.


Any buy-back of the Shares pursuant to the Programme will be effected in accordance with Chapter 12 of the FCA Listing Rules, the EU Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014 and the Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2016/1052 (which are part of UK law by virtue of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018).

The market will be notified in accordance with those rules if and when purchases are made.
