Buying your shares back at recent highs does suggest confidence though in value still. Buying them back in troughs meanwhile smacks of trying to underpin the price to save the Board's skin.

Anyone go to the AGM yesterday? It seems to have been noisy re the prefs scandal:- http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/markets/article-5714927/Aviva-boss-faces-massive-bonus-cut-blundering-attempt-cancel-special-high-yield-shares.html Aviva boss Mark Wilson is facing a bonus cut after a humiliating failed attempt to cancel special high-yield shares triggered an outcry across the City. The chief executive, who earned £4.3million last year, was slammed by shareholders at the insurer’s general meeting yesterday. They claimed he had blackened Aviva’s name by threatening to cancel the so-called preference shares for less than they were worth on the market.

Take the buy backs over the 8 months -taking the 600 million dividing by the number of trading days say 160 approx lets assume its complete by Christmas avoiding thin trading between christmas and new year averages out at a spend of approx 3.75 million pounds per day so on the current share price 536p = an average daily purchase of 700,000 shares. My guess is they will front end it a tad as they will not want to be caught out squeezed to pay high prices in December to meet the 600 million commitment.

Share buybacks are fine when there is a low share price However now the price has risen since they went x div I think it is good money after corporate bad. You would have got a lot more bang for your bucks at £4.90...... or they could start buying the dips!

Buybacks are a waste of money unless the shares are cancelled, normally just put into treasury.Helps eps makes the directors look good.

Lloyds buybacks certainly haven’t stopped the share price falling.

Exactly cordwainer. I hate share buybacks.

That is a common result of buybacks. IMHO never been a fan of them regarding them as a waste of spare cash as it doesn't get into shareholders' pockets or even into a rise in their asset value. Similarly, all too often buybacks just flatter the company's EPS which in turn benefits executive bonuses, though that may not be the case here quite so much.

disappointed that the £600m is not a special dividend or on top of interim divi. at about 2.75% of market cap, the buy backs could easily get frittered away by traders instead of going directly into my portfolio.

Wilson has done a very good job here. As someone who has a years salary invested, I want him to stay. Not saying it wasn’t a botch, bonuses should be slashed but 14m isn’t a huge loss compared to the melaise we were in unde Moss

Can't agree with that, sorry! Sounds like a Corbyn comment :)

The error? Oh 14 million pounds is just an error in your mind.

Hopefully no one. They've conceded the error and compensated. I'd rather that were the end of it. I remember the Moss days, the current board should continue on with what they've achieved so far.

Nonsense - the very fact its caused such uproar and they've had to renege on their initial stance says it all Address the issue - YES but don't cause such market disruption with an amateurish (and equally immoral) attempt to fleece investors

Still feel that some posters on here are missing the key point about WHY Aviva considered the move on their preference shares. The forthcoming change in regulatory capital requirements - again referred to in today's announcement - will have a dramatic effect on all finance-based companies when preference shares can NOT be included in such calculations..... eventually, come 2026. If the board had ignored the potential issues involved with the change, then shareholders would have probably decided that the board were also, incompetent. In short, this issue should be approached in a balanced and fair-minded way so far as ALL stakeholders in the company are concerned.

massive failure of investor relations and company stewardship. Worse, if some investors were briefed that Aviva was considering the pref cancellation before there was an announcement to the market, possibly criminal. Thing is, every other aspect they are doing well. Would be interesting to see if any bonuses get paid this year. Asagi (long AV.)

And it should cost more It wasn't just Aviva related preference shares that were affected - they pulled the WHOLE market down The whole board should resign

He should resign. Disgrace.Acted diahonarably, got caught, now made to pay up. No goodwill shown.His whole I'll thought out plan to steal wealth from a minority group has cost aviva 14million plus.

"Following clear legal advice" Take some responsibility - be a moral leader OR alternatively can we appoint advisors as board members as clearly the current lot are incapable of the role

Good to see Aviva doing the decent thing - buying their re-admission to the human race. Hopefully the market will respond positively.
