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, and to cover any costs that may occur in connection to the long-term incentive programme 2016. Transfer of own shares may be made either on Nasdaq Stockholm or in another manner.
