REPURCHASE OF OWN SHARES
The Annual General Meeting held in August 2018 resolved to renew the mandate for the Board of Directors to buy back shares during the period until the next following Annual General Meeting, to acquire up to the number of shares so that the number of shares held in treasury from time to time does not exceed 10 percent of shares outstanding. The purpose of repurchasing shares is to give the Board of Directors freedom of action in its work with the Company’s capital structure, to allow shares held in treasury to be used as payment for acquisitions and to secure the Company’s undertaking in the existing personnel option program. Repurchases shall be made via the Stockholm Stock Exchange. The mandate is proposed to include the option to use treasury shares as payment for acquisitions, or to sell treasury shares in ways other than via the Stockholm Stock Exchange to finance acquisitions.
