As previously announced, the annual general meeting in Boliden on 27 May 2021 resolved on an automatic share redemption procedure including a split of Boliden’s shares, a so called share split 2:1. The share split was carried out during May whereby each existing share was divided into two shares, one of which was referred to as a redemption share.
