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.
