Elliott Senior Portfolio Manager Nabeel Bhanji said the following about the announcement:
“We welcome DNP’s commitment to announce the largest share buyback in the Company’s history, accelerate the disposal of its cross-shareholdings, increase its ROE target to 10% and target a Price-to-Book multiple of above 1x.
