The share transfer is based on the decision of Kesko's Board of Directors, announced in a stock exchange release on 1 February 2018, to grant own B shares held by the company in treasury, on the basis of the fulfilment of the performance criteria of the transitional share-based commitment and incentive plan (Bridge Plan) for the performance period 2017. The figure cited in the release of 1 February 2018 (133,751 B shares) represents gross earnings, from which the applicable withholding tax has been deducted and the remaining net amount has been paid to the participants in Kesko’s B shares. 

After the transfer of the shares, Kesko holds 499,435 own B shares as treasury shares.
