VIENNA, Dec 17 (Reuters) - Austrian real estate company Immofinanz plans to buy back around 1 percent of its outstanding shares in a repurchase programme set to run until the end of next April and will pay for at least 1.04 euros ($1) per share, it said on Wednesday.
The maximum purchase price will be 15 percent above the average of the volume-weighted daily closing prices of the previous 10 trading days, but not more than 3.00 euros a share after the redemption of 11,224,687 treasury shares, it said.
The shares hit their lowest in more than two years on Tuesday after it said it expected to record a second-quarter net loss.
The shares were up 0.15 percent at 2.04 euros at 1026 GMT euros. Immofinanz is due to report its second-quarter results after the market close on Wednesday.
