Standard Bank Says Share Buyback Not an Immediate Intention

May 31, 2012

Standard Bank Group Ltd. is not planning an immediate buyback of shares, Erik Larsen, the bank’s spokesman, said in a telephone interview from Johannesburg today.

Standard Bank directors “intend to repurchase shares either by the company or one of its subsidiaries,” Chairman Fred Phaswana said earlier today at the lender’s annual general meeting. Shareholders voted to approve the bank’s share- repurchase proposal.
