Acquisition of own shares must be made on Nasdaq Stockholm. The reason for the acquisition of own shares are to improve the Company’s capital structure, to enable share transfers in accordance with the authorisation resolution for the Board to transfer own shares and with the former resolution to transfer own shares to participants within LTI 2016 and to increase the flexibility for the Board in connection to potential future corporate acquisitions. Own shares may be acquired to the extent the Company’s holdings of own shares in total amounts to no more than one tenth of all shares in the Company.
Transfer of own shares may be made to improve the Company’s capital structure and to increase the flexibility of the Board in connection to potential future corporate acquisitions, by facilitating a fast and cost-efficient financing by divesting holdings of own shares. Transfer of own shares must be made either on Nasdaq Stockholm or in another manner. The maximum number of shares that may be transferred is the total number of own shares held by the Company at the time of the board’s resolution to transfer the shares.
