Eindhoven, the Netherlands – Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, today announced the start of the share repurchase program to buy back up to EUR 230 million of its own shares to reduce the company’s capital.

 

The program is in line with Signify’s announcement of July 27, 2018 and will start on July 30, 2018. It is expected to be completed by the end of 2018.
