The Board of Directors of Kindred Group has, empowered by a mandate received at the Extraordinary General Meeting on 10 June 2022, decided to initiate a share buy-back programme. The purpose of the programme is to return excess cash to the shareholders in line with the Kindred’s distribution policy.
Share repurchases can be made during the period 1 August 2022 until the next Annual General Meeting. However, no share repurchases will be executed during the closed periods ahead of the publication of quarterly reports.
Share repurchases are to be made on Nasdaq Stockholm in accordance with the Nasdaq Nordic Main Market Rulebook for Issuers of Shares, Maltese Companies Act and EU Market Abuse Regulation No. 596/2014 (MAR). Share repurchases are to be made at a price per share within the recorded interval, i.e. the interval between the highest buying price and the lowest selling price. Payment for the shares shall be made in cash.
The maximum number of shares/SDRs that can be repurchased is 23,000,000 and the Company’s holdings of its own shares/SDRs may not at any time exceed 10% of the total outstanding shares.
