- Om Tethys Oil
The Annual General Meeting ("AGM") on 18 May 2016 resolved to authorize the Board of Directors to decide on repurchase of own shares. The Board of Directors has, based on the authorization, decided to initiate the repurchasing program. The main reason of the repurchasing program is to give the company flexibility regarding its equity and thereby optimize the capital structure of the company. Repurchased shares may also be used as payment for, or financing of, acquisitions of companies or businesses or in connection with handling of incentive programs.
The repurchase of shares may only take place on Nasdaq Stockholm and only at a price within the price interval prevailing at any given time. Purchases may be made at one or more occasions up until the AGM in 2017, and by a maximum of so many shares that the company's holding of own shares after the purchase amounts to not more than of one-tenth of all the shares in the company.
Tethys Oil currently holds 1,104,169 shares in custody.
For the complete authorization, please refer to Tethys Oil's website, www.tethysoil.com.
