Share Repurchases



 10 January 2022


BP p.l.c. (the "Company") announces that it is to commence a share buyback programme to repurchase ordinary shares in the capital of the Company (the "Programme").


The purpose of the Programme is to reduce the issued share capital of the Company to offset the expected dilution from the vesting of awards under employee share schemes, as announced by the Company on 27 April 2021, 3 August 2021 and 2 November 2021.


The maximum amount allocated to the Programme is around $500 million for a period up to and including 7 February 2022. 


The Programme will be carried out on the London Stock Exchange and/or Cboe (UK) and will be effected within certain pre-set parameters.


Any purchases of ordinary shares by the Company in relation to this announcement will be conducted in accordance with the Company's general authority to repurchase shares granted by its shareholders at the Company's 2021 Annual General Meeting and any further approvals to repurchase shares as may be granted by its shareholders from time to time, the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014 as it forms part of domestic law by virtue of section 3 of the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (as amended) and Chapter 12 of the Listing Rules.
