Munksjö Oyj has completed the repurchases of own shares 

In February 2015 the Board of Directors of Munksjö Oyj decided to utilise the authorization given by the Annual General Meeting, held on 2 April 2014, and repurchase a maximum of 300,000 own shares. 

The repurchases continued after the publication of the interim report for January-March 2015, based on the authorisation given by the Annual General Meeting, held on 15 April 2015. The repurchased shares will be used primarily for implementing share-based incentive programmes of the company, or for other purposes defined in the authorization of the Annual General Meeting.

In May 2014, the Board of Directors approved a long-term share-based incentive programme for Munksjö's senior executives and other key personnel, approximately 35 persons. 

The repurchases started on 16 February 2015 and ended on 21 May 2015. During this period, Munksjö repurchased 300,000 shares, corresponding to about 0.6 per cent of the total number of shares and votes. 

The shares were acquired through public trading on Nasdaq Helsinki at the market price prevailing at the time of repurchase. Nordea Bank Finland Plc acted as stock broker in the repurchases.
