Contrary to many companies that have suspended share buyback programs to retain cash because of the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Italian fashion house Aeffe, which owns Pollini, continued with a previously announced buyback, purchasing 70,000 shares equivalent to a 0.07 percent stake at an average price of €0.9038 per share in the May 18 to 22 period. After the purchase of these shares, for a total expenditure of €63,266, Aeffe now owns 6.6 percent of its own shares.
