Based on the mandate granted by the Annual General Meeting of shareholders on 7 May 2012, the Board of Directors of ÅF AB has decided to buy back 558,782 of the company's own class B shares on the NASDAQ OMX Stockholm Exchange at a price within the registered price range at the time of purchase, and to reduce the company's share capital by cancelling the repurchased shares. The buy-back will run until 31 December 2012.
The number of shares repurchased is to correspond to the total amount subscribed for in the company's 2012 Convertible Programme open to ÅF employees in Sweden, namely SEK 88 million.
The purpose of the buy-backs is to offset the dilution effects that would occur in the event of full conversion.
