At their Annual General Meeting on 5 May 2009, ÅF shareholders gave the Board a mandate to buy back up to 270,000 of the company's class B shares before the 2010 Annual General Meeting.
In a decision based on this mandate, the Board of ÅF AB, resolved to acquire a maximum of 270,000 class B shares, during the period of 4th of November 2009 until the 5th of May 2010. The shares will be purchased for cash on the OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm at a price that falls within the registered share price range at the time of purchase.
The purpose of the buy-backs is to safeguard the company's obligations with regard to the Performance-Related Share Programme 2009 that was approved by the 2009 AGM.
