Bulgarian copper mining company Asarel-Medet said on Tuesday that its shareholders have approved the management's plan to launch a share repurchase programme worth up to 100.5 million euro. The proposal, targeting up to 14.7% of the company's capital, envisages buying back up to 591,240 own shares in the price range of 170 to 200 euro apiece, Asarel-Medet said in the minutes of its shareholders meeting.
