Lloyds Banking Group plc (LLOY.L,LYG) said it is launching a share buyback program on Thursday to repurchase up to 1 billion pounds of ordinary shares, as previously announced on 21 February 2018.

Lloyds has entered into an agreement with UBS AG, London Branch to conduct the share buyback program on its behalf and to make trading decisions under the program independently of the company.
