MYOB Group Limited (ASX:MYO) (MYOB), a leading provider of online business management solutions to Australian and New Zealand businesses, is pleased to announce its intention to undertake an on-market share buyback of up to 5 per cent of the Company's issued capital, equivalent to approximately 30,322,081 ordinary shares. The buyback will commence on or after Friday September 8th 2017, and will be open for a period of up to 12 months.

MYOB Chairman, Justin Milne:

"This buyback reflects the Board's commitment to efficient capital management whilst maintaining flexibility to pursue acquisitions in line with our growth strategy."

Based on the Company's closing share price of $3.37 on 23 August 2017, 5 per cent of MYOB's issued share capital would represent a buy-back program valued at approximately $102 million. The total number of shares purchased will depend on market conditions and will be evaluated against alternative opportunities throughout the buyback period.

The buyback will be funded from existing cash and the business will retain a strong balance sheet and regulatory capital position following the buyback.
