Harbour is pleased to announce today the commencement of a share buyback programme of the Company’s ordinary shares for up to a maximum aggregate consideration of $200 million.

Harbour has entered into irrevocable, non-discretionary agreements with its corporate brokers to execute the programme on its behalf. The purpose of the programme is to reduce the Company's share capital and all ordinary shares purchased as part of this programme will be cancelled. The programme will commence today, 16 June 2022, and will end no later than 31 December 2022.
Any purchases of ordinary shares by the Company in relation to this announcement will be conducted in accordance with the relevant regulations (including but not limited to the Listing Rules) and Harbour’s general authority to repurchase shares.
