LONDON (Reuters) - Unilever will launch its previously announced share buyback programme on Friday, with plans to purchase 1.5 billion to 2.5 billion euros worth of London-listed shares, and the balance of the 5 billion euro programme on its Dutch shares.

The buyback will end no later than 15 December, the company said on Thursday.
