Volati’s board of directors has resolved on acquisitions of own ordinary shares
The board of directors of Volati AB (publ) has, based on the authorisation from the annual general meeting, today on 25 April 2019 resolved that the company shall acquire a maximum of 3,000,000 own ordinary shares on Nasdaq Stockholm.
The purpose of the acquisitions is to achieve flexibility regarding the company’s equity and thereby enable an optimised capital structure. From the annual general meeting 2018, Volati had a corresponding authorisation to acquire 3,000,000 own ordinary shares. This authorisation has been exercised through the repurchase of 1,000,000 ordinary shares for the price of SEK 44.825 per share, which took place on 25 April 2019.
“We continuously evaluate our capital structure and, in some cases, repurchase of own shares can be a suitable tool for optimising this. We have therefore decided to have the same opportunity to acquire own ordinary shares also until the annual general meeting in 2020 that we had after the annual general meeting 2018,” says Mårten Andersson, CEO of Volati.
