Balfour Beatty, the international infrastructure group, announces that it has appointed its corporate brokers to manage a share buyback programme to repurchase Ordinary Shares on its behalf from 11 March 2022, up to a maximum aggregate consideration of £150 million (the "Share Buyback"). It is the intention that the Share Buyback will be completed by 31 December 2022.

Share purchases will take place in open market transactions and may be made from time to time depending on market conditions, share price and trading volume. The maximum price paid per Ordinary Share will be no more than the higher of (i) 105 per cent of the average middle market closing prices of the Ordinary Shares for the five business days preceding any Ordinary Shares being purchased and (ii) the higher of the price of the last independent trade and the highest independent bid for Ordinary Shares on the trading venue where the purchase is carried out. Under the Share Buyback, the purchased shares will be held in treasury.

The maximum number of shares to be purchased is 63,940,526 Ordinary Shares (subject to the current shareholder authority being renewed at the 2022 AGM). The Share Buyback programme will also be effected within the parameters of the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014/EU and the Commission Delegated Regulation 2016/1052/EU (as in force in the UK from time to time, including where relevant pursuant to the Market Abuse (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019). The Group confirms that it currently has no other unpublished price sensitive information.

The Group will make further regulatory announcements to shareholders in respect of purchases of Ordinary Shares by the Group as they occur.
