    CRH announces share buyback, new divestment programme

    Irish building materials group CRH (CRH.I) launched its first share buyback programme in a decade on Wednesday and also announced a new target to raise 1.5-2.0 billion euros from selling assets. CRH said last year it would prioritise reinvesting capital in acquisitions but chief executive Albert Manifold floated the possibility of a share buyback in a media interview on Friday, sending its shares 4.1 percent higher. Manifold said on Wednesday the world's third-largest building group could do both, and would repurchase up to 1 billion euros of shares over the next 12 months, with the timing based on an ongoing assessment of capital needs.
