The shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on 13 May 2020 authorized the Board of Directors to undertake a buy-back program, the first of which was announced on 11 December 2020, subject to the limitations outlined below. The key objective is to give the company equity flexibility and thereby optimize its capital structure. 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. Purchases may be made at one or several occasions up to and including 8 February 2021, and by a maximum of so many shares that the company’s holding of own shares after the purchase amounts to a maximum of one-tenth of all the shares in the company. The maximum amount for which shares may be acquired under the buy-back program may not exceed SEK 42 million. The buy-back program is being implemented in accordance with the MAR and Safe Harbour Regulation.
