Gogo to buy back shares from BlackRock

BROOMFIELD — Gogo Inc., a provider of broadband connectivity services for the business-aviation market, is buying 1.5 million shares of its common stock back from multinational investor BlackRock Inc. (NYSE: BLK) at $12.23 each.

The move comes after “BlackRock inadvertently acquired beneficial ownership of more than 4.9% of Gogo’s common stock, exceeding the threshold stipulated” in Gogo’s 2020 shareholder rights agreement, the company said in a news release. 

After the buyback is completed by Sept 21, BlackRock would still need to divest another roughly 100,000 shares to get below the required threshold.
